Your privacy is important to us.

Oh, hello. I’m Daisy and it’s my job as Head of Security at Sarah Vivienne Photography to explain how we look after the information you give us.

Before we get into detail, you need to know that the terms ‘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 us, like your name and email address.

We 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. We use it to improve our website, SEO rankings and marketing.
  2. The things you tell us by email or in our contact form when you enquire about our services. We’ll use this data to answer your questions and/or provide the information you’ve asked for. This data is stored securely in our Gmail account, it can only be accessed by us and unless you book us, it’s deleted after 3 months.
  3. If you sign-up to receive our email newsletters we’ll ask for your name and email address. We 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. We’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 us to see results like how many e-mails were opened and which links were clicked on. This helps us make future newsletters more interesting and useful.

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

By giving us your information, you give us permission to use it as we've described above.

You can ask to see your data, ask us to amend anything that’s incorrect/out of date or ask us to delete it at any time. Please get in touch to let us know.

We might need to change this policy occasionally and sometimes we might have to do it without letting you know beforehand. Please check back to ensure you’re aware of the latest policy.

The main thing to know: we won't do anything with your data that our Mums wouldn't be proud of.

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