Thank you for visiting my data protection policy. You can use this website without the need to provide any personal data. If you want to purchase any photographic services, then the processing of some personal data will be necessary. This Policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit my website, how I use it and keep it secure. The Policy may change from time to time, and by using my website, you are agreeing to be bound by this Policy.
All the edited photographs purchased or displayed on this website are displayed under the copyright of Peter Nutkins Photography and are protected under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.
For those lovely clients who have received digital files, either as part of their photography portfolio or individually from my website gallery, Peter Nutkins Photography grants limited licence rights which are detailed in your purchase. If any doubt exists as to the extent of licensed usage, then please contact Peter Nutkins Photography.
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
We use a cookie to make the website work (these are called necessary cookies) - this cookie is provided by Microsoft who run our server. We also have 3 cookies given by Google which note down information such as your general location, type of device, and what pages you visit, if you are a repeat visitor. This helps us answer questions about how effective parts of the website are. For example the menu system on the mobile site, the buttons etc.
Please note that our cookies collect anonymous data. We do not use Facebook Pixels, advertising cookies etc - we find it a bit eerie that adverts can pop up all over the place with things you have searched for on certain sites.
How to control cookies
Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended.
The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
What other type of information is collected?
I obtain information through my website in three ways: anonymously via cookies (see above), directly and by a third-party.
Directly: The direct information I collect is when you make an enquiry, purchase products or purchase a photographic service. This will be your name, address, phone number and details about your photography.
Third Party: If you purchase a product or service from me using an online payment method, your card information is not held by me but it is collected by a third party payment processor (Stripe, Square or Paypal) who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. The only information I receive from the third party are notifications that a transaction has taken place, with the name of the payee (and address if posting), the date and the amount of the transaction.
How is your information used?
I will hold your personal information on my systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with me. Any information you provide will be used to:
Carry out any obligations from any contracts that we enter in to
Seek your views or comments on the services I provide
Notify you of any changes to my services
Who has access to your information?
The only person who has any access to any information which is collected through my website or any other communications is Peter Nutkins Photography, and I will not sell or rent your information to any third parties nor will I share your information with third parties for any marketing purposes.
Say NO To Direct Marketing
I do not generate a newsletter, offer any subscriptions and do not generate bulk or direct mail shots for marketing. If I contact you, it will be about an enquiry you have made or any photographic services we have agreed upon. All communications will be sent directly from me to you.
When you provide any personal information, I take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of any information. My website is protected with SSL and a secure page a lock icon will appear on your web browser to show that the page is secure.
Any information provided over the internet can never be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, while I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to me, and you do so at your own risk.
Once I receive your information, I make our best effort to ensure its security, and where I have given you a password which enables you to access my website galleries, you are responsible for sharing this password.
