Stephany Stefan: Privacy Policy

Your Privacy

At Stephany Stefan Photographer we care about our customers and are committed to maintaining your confidence and trust when visiting our website, corresponding with us through email or booking an appointment. Your privacy is very important to us and below we have explained how we collect and use your personal data.

This Privacy Policy was last modified in June 2018.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

What information do we collect about you?

Personal information refers to any information that may be used to identify you. This includes your name (and those of any members in your photo shoot), address, phone number and email address that you provide to us voluntarily. These details are kept internally and are never sold to a third party.

How will we use the information about you?

When you book in for a photo shoot or send us a message, we collect the information you provide us with to improve our service to you and to contact you about your photo shoot or order and to answer any queries you may have. We also use the information for internal record keeping, to send you promotional emails or newsletters and to improve our products and services. We do not share your details outside of Stephany Stefan Photographer.

Security

We value your privacy and are committed to ensuring that your information is secure both physically and electronically.

How long do we store information

We keep all data for up to a period of six years but will only contact you if you are due to visit us or if you have agreed for us to keep in contact. You can review this at any time and unsubscribe to our newsletter or our promotional emails by getting in touch with us.

Storage of photos and information

Any photos we take of you are stored internally and archived securely.

Email information

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain your email messages together with your email address and responses. These will be given the same degree of protection as our other communications with you, outlined in this Privacy policy.

Using your data if you contact us via social media

If you send us a message via social media, we will use any information you give us to contact you and if you become a client, we will store that information using our usual guidelines detailed in this privacy policy. Please note that any message sent to us via these channels is stored by those sites too.

Children and Privacy

If you are aged 13 or under, you will need to get permission from your parent or guardian before booking a photo shoot.

Marketing

We value you as a customer and from time to time like to reward your loyalty to us by sending you information about certain promotions or products that may be of interest to you. If you have consented to receiving these updates, please be aware that you can opt out at any time by getting in touch with us.

Links to other websites

Please be aware that any links on our website are for your interest but once you are a visitor to that site, we do not have any control over how it processes your data and are therefore not responsible for this.

Use of Cookies and Pixels

We use cookies on our website to log traffic to our pages which helps us improve our service to you. When you click on our website we will ask your permission to add our cookie to your hard drive. Once you accept, the file is added and helps us analyse web traffic. If you are not comfortable with accepting cookies, you can decline them and still have access to our website, although this may prevent you from using our website to its full advantage.

We reserve the right to use social media pixels which are technological equivalents of cookies. These track visitors to outside websites and therefore tailor advertising messages users see while visiting these websites. If we use pixels they will be in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites we use.

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics to collect visitor behaviour patterns which we use to improve our service to you. This data does not identify anyone.

Changes to our privacy policy

From time to time we may need to update our privacy policy and any changes will appear here. This privacy policy was last updated in June 2018.

Updating your Personal Information and Unsubscribing

We value you as our customer and endeavour to meet your needs with any correspondence we have with you. However, we do appreciate that people’s needs change. If at any time you wish to stop receiving information from us, you are free to unsubscribe at any time.
