Your privacy is important to me.

Before we get into detail, you need to know that the terms 'me', 'I', ‘we’, ‘our’ and ‘us’ refer to Sarah Vivienne Photography. And the terms ‘you’ & ‘your’ refer to anyone using this website. Sorry to be so impersonal.

Also, the term ‘data’ means the personal details you give me, like your name and email address.

I collect data through this website in three ways:

  1. Details about visits to the site and how it’s used. This doesn’t contain any personal data and it’s analysed anonymously by Google Analytics. I use it to improve this website, SEO rankings and marketing.
  2. The things you tell me by email or in my contact form when you enquire. I’ll use this data to answer your questions and/or provide the information you’ve asked for. This data is stored securely in Gmail, it can only be accessed by me and unless you book me, it’s deleted after 3 months.
  3. If you sign-up to receive my email newsletters I’ll ask for your name and email address. I use MailChimp to deliver these emails. When you sign-up, you’ll receive an email asking you to confirm that you want to subscribe.  This is a legal requirement to prove it’s you that signed up. I’ll keep this data indefinitely but you can opt-out at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link which you’ll find at the end of every newsletter. These newsletters contain ‘tracking pixels’ which allow me to see results like how many e-mails were opened and which links were clicked on. This helps me make future newsletters more interesting and useful.

Everything I collect is for my own use, either by me or our trusted suppliers who help me deliver your products and services. But I pinky promise not to give your details to anyone else unless I have to for legal reasons. And I’ll never, ever ever, sell your data to anyone.

By giving me your information, you give me permission to use it as described above.

You can ask to see, amend or delete your data at any time. Please get in touch to let me know.

I might need to change this policy occasionally and might not be able to let you know beforehand. Please check back to ensure you’re aware of the latest policy.

The main thing to know is: I won't do anything with your data that my Mum wouldn't be proud of.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
