Your personal data:
What we need
Sarah Hart Photography will be the ‘Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us. We collect basic personal data about you including name, address, email and telephone number.
Why we collect your data
We need your basic personal data in order to provide you with information about photography services in accordance with our contract. We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to provide and oversee this service to you.
What we do with your data
All the personal data we hold is processed by Sarah Hart in the UK however for the purposes of IT hosting and maintenance this information is located on servers within the European Union.
No 3rd parties have access to your personal data unless the law or our contract with you, allows them to do so.
We have a Data Protection regime in place to oversee the effective and secure processing of your personal data.
How long we keep your data
We keep your images for the length of time agreed upon in our contract with you, after which time they will be deleted. Your information we use for marketing purposes will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information.
What we would also like to do with your data
We would like to use your name and email address to inform you of our future offers and similar products. This information is not shared with third parties and you can unsubscribe at any time via phone, email or our website.
We use PayPal to bill for our appointments online via our online booking system (this is used for mini sessions only, full sessions will be billed and can be paid by BACS). PayPal will therefore have access to your personal and payment information. When paying by credit card online, we (Sarah Hart Photography) do not ever have any access to your credit card details.
We share information with PayPal only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our website.
Analysing our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand which parts of our site are of particular interest, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.
Social networks (Facebook, Twitter etc.)
Social networks provide a number of social features which we use on our website – such as the Facebook and Twitter share buttons.
We embed the code that they provide into our website and do not control this code ourselves. In order to work, their buttons generally know if you’re logged in to your social media account; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how these social networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services
