Lindsey Harris (M35 Photography) will be what’s known as the ‘Controller’ of the personal data you provide to me. I only collect basic personal data about you which does not include any special types of information, or location based information. This may, however, include name, address, email, phone number.
Why I need your data
I need to know your basic personal data in order to provide you with information, products and services and to manage your account with me. This contact might be by phone, post, email, text, picture message, or other ways.
I do not collect any personal data from you I do not need in order to provide and oversee this service to you.
What I do with your data
All the personal data I process is processed by in the UK.
I might also be obliged to share your information:
- With any public authority or law enforcement agency (if they ask for it)
- To comply with law or regulations, or for possible legal proceedings
- If you give me personal information that’s wrong or we find out (or think) you’re responsible for fraud
How is your information collected?
Information may be collected via my website contact form(s), from an email or letter you send me, via a telephone conversation, Skype, web ‘chat’, SMS text message, or face to face meeting.
When you browse this website I take steps to ensure your safety. When you are on a secure page within my site, a padlock icon will appear next to the page URL (www address) in web browsers such as Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. However, if you fill out a website contact form, or email me, the information you send is transmitted normally (insecurely) over the internet, and this cannot be guaranteed as 100% secure.
Your information might be routed via a few countries before it gets to its destination, even if the recipient is ‘just around the corner’ from you. If someone gets into your emails or intercepts them without your permission and, as a result, your personal information is shared publicly, I cannot accept responsibility. This is out of my control as this is the way the internet works.
Whilst I strive to protect your personal information, as outlined above I cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to me, and therefore you do so at your own risk. However, once I receive your information, I make my best effort to ensure its security on my systems.
If I have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of my website, you are responsible for choosing a secure password and for keeping this password confidential. I ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Via Google Analytics I may collect information on which pages of my website you visit, your IP address, the type of browser you use and the times you access my website.
How long I keep your data
Under UK tax law I am required to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years, after which time it will be destroyed. Your information we use will be kept with me until you notify me that you no longer wish to receive this information.
What I would also like to do with your data
I’d like to use your name and email address to inform you about relevant photographic courses or other information that I think you might be interested in. This information is not shared with third parties and you can unsubscribe at any time via phone, email or this website.
