Who we are
This is the privacy notice of Kate Anderson Photography. Our website address is: https://kateandersonphotography.com. Kate Anderson Photography is a sole trader registered in the United Kingdom.
There are rules and regulations that govern how companies use and retain your information, as a sole trader I am not exempt from those rules and would like to explain how I will use and store your information. This privacy notice aims to inform you of how we collect and process any information we collect from you or you provide us with.
What information is being collected?
If you have made an enquiry via the Website Contact Form, Email, Social Media or Phone I will be collecting and keeping your name/email/telephone number and the relevant information supplied in order to address your request.
How do I use your data?
When someone visits my website, I use a third party service, WordPress, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. This gives me information about the number of visitors to the various parts of my site and allows me to work out where I need to make improvements. I cannot identify or make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting my website.
Once I have received your initial enquiry I will contact you via phone or email as requested by you, and then we will go from there. If you decide to use my services, I will store your data so that I can work professionally with you. If for any reason you decide not to use my services I will no longer use your details to make further contact and will happily delete at your request, unless you opt-in to receiving Newsletters and other marketing materials via email.
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.
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.
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 visit our login page, 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.
Who we share your data with
Personal data, such as contact details, name etc is not shared with anyone. As part of the contract I request for the potential use of images from our session to be used in portfolios, literature, exhibitions and advertising including website, blog and social media sites managed by me.
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 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.
Is the intended use likely to cause individuals to object or complain?
I cannot think of a reason for objection or complaint if we are working together. It is best practice to maintain some form of system to record details for the duration of our working relationship.
All complaints should be raised by the Client with the Photographer/s in writing within 21 days from the dateof receipt of the images. Client has the right to withdraw consent for image use at any time. Client can optout from receiving communications from Kate Anderson Photography at any point and can do so via email or by ‘unsubscribing’.
