privacy policy. . .

In very basic terms I totally respect your personal information and will only ask you for what information I really need from you. I will look after it in the same way I would want my personal data looking after, keeping it secure! I will only share it with others where I need their help to deliver a service to you (such as our professional printing laboratory/album supplier who may need your name and address to post your purchases). Be assured that I will never share your information in any other circumstances – nor will I sell it on elsewhere! Please take some time to review the below Privacy Policy/Terms and Conditions.

Petal & Blush Artistry takes your privacy very seriously. This privacy policy has been prepared in line with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which promotes fairness and transparency for all individuals in respect of their personal data. This privacy policy applies to all data I process, and by using Petal & Blush Artistry you consent to the collection and use of such data.

I may ask you to provide me with the following data – First and Last Name / Postal Address / Postcode / Telephone Number(s) / Email Address.

Obviously being a photographic business I also create and manage images as per our contractual agreement(s).

I use the above data to deliver my service to you / for marketing purposes / to personalise your experience / to provide account access / to contact you.

I collect this data on the following lawful basis: Consent from yourself / To arrange or fulfil a Contract / To meet a legal obligation other than a Contract.

2. THIRD PARTIES I SHARE PERSONAL DATA WITH

I share personal data with the following third parties: Google Analytics / Mailchimp / Quickbooks / MacMail / Siteground / DS Colour Labs / Folio / Dropbox / Crashplan. 

There are also certain situations in which I may share access to your personal data without your explicit consent; for example, if required by law, to protect the life of an individual, or to comply with any valid legal process, government request, rule or regulation. 

3. WHY I SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH THE ABOVE

I share your data in order to deliver my service to you / for marketing purposes / personalise your experience / to keep you up to date via newsletters / to have your albums delivered directly from the supplier (Folio) / to have your prints delivered directly from the supplier (DS Colour Labs) / to back up your images / to send you invoices / for tax purposes. 

I may transfer personal data to a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) if necessary e.g if a third party I utilise could have servers located outside of the EEA. If this is the case, I will either obtain your consent or otherwise ensure that the transfer is legal and your data is secure by following the EU's guidelines.

4. HOW I KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA SECURE 

I keep your data secure by encrypting external hard drives / by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology when information is submitted to me online / password protecting all computers and mobiles.

In the unlikely event of a criminal breach of my security I will inform the relevant regulatory body within 72 hours and, if your personal data were involved in the breach, we will also inform you. 

5. CHANGES TO MY PRIVACY POLICY AND CONTROL

I may change this privacy policy from time to time. When I do, I will let you know by changing the date on this policy and notifying customers of only significant changes. By continuing to access or use my services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised privacy policy.

6. YOUR RIGHTS

You have the:

- right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data

- the right of access to your personal data and any supplementary information

- the right to have any errors in your personal data rectified

- the right to have your personal data erased

- the right to block or suppressing the processing of your personal data

- the right to move, copy or transfer your personal data from one IT environment to another

- the right to object to processing of your personal data in certain circumstances

- rights related to automated decision-making (i.e. where no humans are involved) and profiling (i.e. where certain personal data is processed to evaluate an individual).

I also give you the option to manage your data via: email, telephone, writing to me.

While I do not hold personal data any longer than we need to, the duration will depend on your relationship with me, and whether it is ongoing. I may keep some of your personal data for up to 7 years after my working contract with you has finished for Tax legislation purposes. After this time I will archive your photographs indefinitely along with your relevant details and consent forms. This is due to requests for replacement images being made several years after being taken.
