I value your privacy and your right to be left in peace. Like you, I hate cold calls and spam emails…
By filling in the contact me form on my website a secure record of your details is kept by myself until the query is resolved, once resolved your details are permanently deleted from my servers.
I operate a no spam / no cold call policy. if you call or email me I will respond directly to that query only and will not store your details for any further marketing use. I usually reply to your email and may also follow up with a text for you to check I’m not lurking in your junk folder!
I do not sell or provide your information to third parties. The only exceptions to this are address and contact details that may need to be given to print labs to fulfil your order or if details are needed to be shared by way of a court order for Law or Legal requirement.
Should you wish to ask me to delete any contact information after placing a query please let me know.
How my company collects information
I use a system called Google Analytics. In a nutshell this will help me to find out how you found me in the first place. For example, did you simply type my website into google or did you use a different search engine. None of this is done to obtain any personal information about you it’s purely for me to see how my customers find me. This is done to provide the best customer experience possible.
I collect different types of information before, during and after you book with John Price Photography and use any of my services.
• Names, Addresses and Contact Information of the person(s) using my wedding / portrait services.
• Names, Addresses and Contact Information of the person(s) placing a print order with me.
• Names of participants of a photo shoot.
• Details such as the address and/or running order of your shoot.
If you send me an E-Mail or message me, messages are stored for as long as practical to allow me to provide you with better future services.
Most of the information I collect is given by you, however sometimes information could be collected by a third party. For example a family member or friend may book my services for you.
Purchases made through my website
Whilst making a purchase information such as your name, address and email will be required. These details will be used for this transaction only and will not breach any of your rights under The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003
Purchases that are made through my website are handled by my preferred payment provider PayPal through their own secure servers. I have added a link to their privacy policies too for your peace of mind.
Purchases can also be made via Bank Transfer.
I currently keep all of my clients work safely backed up in case the worst happens and you need copies re-sent. However, times change, people change, and circumstances change. If you would like me to dispose of any work I currently have on file, please let me know and I will be happy to delete all records permanently. Similarly, if I currently have any of your photos displayed on my website, galleries or on Facebook that you’d like me to remove please let me know and I will be happy to do so.
Purchase, sales order and contract records will be kept for a minimum of time to satisfy and legal tax requirements.
If you have any questions or concerns please let me know. For information on the guidelines used you can also see more information on the ICO’s website at https://ico.org.uk
