Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how Shannon Parker Photography uses and protects any information that you give when you use this website.

Shannon Parker Photography is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should I ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

 

What information I collect:

When you first get in touch with me, it’s usually via the contact form on my website, via email, or social media. I collect your:

  • names,

  • email address,

  • mobile phone number,

  • event date and venue.

How do I collect and store your information:

 

This information collected via the contact form on my website and is attached to my client management software, which is a GDPR compliant company. This software is where I keep all your information and is only accessible via my secure password which only I have access to.

My company is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides me with the online platform that allows me to show my services to you. Your data may also be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall.  

My website has a blog which is open to the public to comment on. If you make a comment, you can choose what personal data is shown. You can also choose to delete the comment.

 

Why do I collect this information:

 

I will use the above-mentioned data to communicate with you about your wedding or event. Sometimes I also like to inform you of any discounts I may have for albums and for other wedding-related communication. This may be done via email or phone. If you contacted me via social media, I may also contact you via this platform.

Sometimes we also connect via FaceTime/Skype/Zoom for meetings, in which case we have access to each other via webcam and those contact details too.

From time to time, I may use your information to contact you for market research purposes. I may contact you by email or phone for this.

Your data is never shared with anyone else. On the occasion that you have booked a second photographer with me to attend the wedding, they will receive an itinerary of the day and the emergency contact details in case they need it. This is in paper and email form and will be deleted after the event.

If you make an initial enquiry with me and don’t go ahead with booking me, my client management system follows up with two emails and then proceeds to delete you from my system so that your data is no longer stored.

Links to other websites:


My website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave my site, you should note that I do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

 

Security:

 

I am committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, I have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information I collect online.

 

How my website use cookies:

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added, and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

I use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve my website to tailor it to customer needs. I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help me provide you with a better website, by enabling me to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives me access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with me.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

 

Right of confirmation, access, rectification and erasure:

 

You have the right to confirmation, access, rectification and erasure of all the above data that I hold on you. For example, if you wish to see the initial contact form you submitted and check it for accuracy, or perhaps following your wedding you’d like to have your details completely removed, then you have that right.

 

 

I reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If I make material changes to this policy, I will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information I collect, how I use it, and under what circumstances, if any, I use and/or disclose it. 

 

If you would like to ask any questions about any aspect of my privacy policy or the data I store on you then please email: email@shannonparker.co.uk
