Privacy

As both a user and supplier of internet services I will respect and protect your online privacy.

This includes your need and your right to know what I do with the personal information you share with me. By accessing this website you are consenting to the way information is collected and used, as described within this Privacy Policy.

In return, I assure you that I will use the personal data you provide only in ways that are compatible with the following Privacy Policy.

The collection of information

Every time you log on to my website your IP (Internet Protocol) address registers on the server. Your IP address reveals no information other than the number assigned to you. I do not use this technology to get any personal data against your knowledge or free will (i.e., automatically recording e-mail addresses of visitors). Nor do I use it for any purpose other than to help me monitor traffic on my website, or (in case of criminal activity or misuse of our information) to cooperate with law enforcement.

Cookies

If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then I recommend you visit http://www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance.

A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie, is usually a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website. When the user browses the same website in the future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the website of the user's previous activity.

The list below describes the cookies used on this site and what they're used for. Currently I operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that I assume you are happy with this usage. If you are not happy, then you should either not use this site, or you should delete the cookies having visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, "Private Browsing" in Firefox and Safari etc.)

First Party Cookies

These are cookies that are set by this website directly.

Google Analytics: I use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on my website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of my site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. I therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

You can find out more about Google’s position on privacy as regards its analytics service at http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/privacyoverview.html

Virb: This website is powered by Virb who do not use cookies as part of their sites.

Third Party Cookies

These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site allow visitors to share content onto social networks. Cookies are currently set by Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Google+ and Pinterest. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this website.

You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

Emails

I do not use tracking in emails that I send. All the information given and received by email is regarded as confidential and will not be shared. Emails are stored on a highly secure system.

Photography

Most of the work that I undertake involves a contract to which both parties contribute and agree upon. I undertake to store images taken of you in a secure manner, and will delete images not used as part of the contract after 3 months. As I like to use some of my commission work as part of my photographic portfolio, I will display certain images on this website, or the facebook site associated with this site, but I will always ask you whether you are ok with this prior to doing so.
