This policy describes how Payens Photography will collect and use personal information about you when you use our website.
At Payens Photography we take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information for the following purposes, to administer your account and to provide products and services you have requested from us. We will never sell your data on to third parties. Under the General Data Protection Regulations, which is law from May 2018, we are required to gain your consent to process your personal data and will also request your consent as to the methods we can use to contact you. Payens Photography is the "data controller". This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. We are required under data protection legislation to notify you of the information contained in this policy.
Who we are
Payens Photography is a photographic company based in East Yorkshire. We provide wedding, portrait, events and commercial photographic services as well as video production and editing.
Information we may collect from you
We may collect and process the following data about you:
What we may use your data for
Where we store your personal data
How we will protect your personal information
We are committed to holding your personal information provided to us securely.
Where personal information is held electronically, it is held on a computer system that is owned and controlled by the Payens Photography or such other third party appointed by the Payens Photography.
To keep you updated on latest news, offers and products/services offered by Payens Photography, Payens Photography stores your details, in both paper and electronic format. Paper copies are held locally by Payens Photography at its offices. Sometimes we will make electronic copies of paper documents or type up information from them. These documents or information are then stored on our computer system.
All the information that you provide to us will be stored on our computer systems or the servers of such other third party who we may appoint from time to time to store information.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our online service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
How long we will retain your data for
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for (see “What we use the information contained in this form for” above). To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider:
Payens Photography will ensure that our suppliers and selected third parties with whom we share your personal information in accordance with this policy will delete your personal information when they no longer require it.
Links to other sites
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to other websites. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
Posting Comments & Social Media
Please note that if you choose to post comments on this website or via our social media accounts containing personal data we cannot accept responsibility for the use or misuse of such data by others who have access to such posts and we suggest that you consider carefully before posting any such data. Please note that we may review tracking data generated by social media providers such as Facebook for measuring how useful our social media presence is for you.
Your duty to inform us of changes
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your relationship with us.
Your rights in connection with personal information
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact Payens Photography. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you: we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. You have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner (https://www.ico.org.uk) if you have any concerns in respect of the handling of your personal information by Payens Photography.
