What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments to the website blog

Comments to my blog are not currently allowed-I therefore collect no data from comments to my blog.

Contact forms

When you contact us using the contact form I store your data on our webserver (and ultimately our email browser). This allows us to respond to enquiries or requests for work.

You may be providing us with information such as :

  • Your email address
  • Your name, address and contact telephone number

 

Cookie Policy

We collect anonymous statistical data gathered (specifically by Google Analytics). The data is generated by cookies-these are text files that are placed on your computer when you visit the pages of my website. There are also cookies that while necessary to the functionality of the security and administration of our site have no bearing or implications on your usage and the functionality of the site. When you first visit jamesbignell.co.uk you are given  the opportunity to selectively ‘opt -out’ of interacting with them. You can also disable cookies via your web browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari) -please refer to their instructions on how to do this.

Google Analytics Tracking Cookies

We use Google Analytics tracking to help me understand how visitors use the website (what pages they like.) The data is purely an aggregate and the data is completely anonymous-you will never be personally identified from this data.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Links To Third Party Websites

We link to the following websites

  • Zenfolio-an online gallery where clients can view a greater selection of my work
  • Social Media (Facebook, Pinterest & Twitter)

For further information, please consult their privacy policies.

How long We retain your data

If you leave a comment or contact me via email, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. The visitor statistics data gathered for us by google Analaytics is also retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue as well as making the website better for our visitors.

Who we share your data with

James Bignell Photography will never share or sell any data on to third party companies or organisations. We are committed not only to the letter of the law, but also to the spirit of the law. As a company we place the highest values on the correct, lawful and fair handling of all personal data, respecting the legal rights, privacy and trust of all individuals with whom it deals.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, or contacted us via email you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Your email data is stored on our webserver while your visitor statistics data is stored with Google who then share it with us.
