Privacy Policy

GDPR

So there is this thing called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) that has everyone in a flurry to clutter up your inbox with opt in emails and quickly put tick boxes all over their website and contracts etc. To be fair, its not something I have given a huge amount of time to. But if you are interested in the details about the security of your information then please feel free to read the boring stuff below this pretty picture – where the bride and groom are un-identifiable because you know – privacy policy. But also because I like photos of feet! Its a thing.

If you don’t want to read the boring bit (and lets face it, who blames you, its pretty dull!) then scroll down to the picture of the nut!

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

If you fill out my contact for Smith your name, email address and any other personal information, I keep this information for the duration of time we are undertaking business with each other. I do not share your details with third parties or use your contact information for marketing purposes.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

I do not share your personal information with any third parties unless I have your permission. For example if you have agreed to be featured on a blog and they need to get in touch with you. I will always ask your permission first before sharing this information.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

Your information is stored on my password protected online database Studio Ninja that nobody else has access to.

 

Or in a nutshell…

In a Nutshell:

I may need your full name and personal details like email address and postal address. This is so that I can contact you to find out where your wedding is and send you my shiny brochure and maybe some nice things when your photographs are ready. If you don’t want to give me this information that is fine but I won’t be able to contact you or send you nice things in the post. If you are happy to, I can promise I won’t use your private information to send you spammy stuff. Because I’m nice. I want you to like me and so I don’t do stuff like that!
