PRIVACY POLICY 

We want to protect your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of our web site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data is being used lawfully. We take our responsibilities under Data Protection Act, and in due course GDPR, very seriously and we want to comply with the spirit and the letter of the guidance provided by the Information Commissioners Office

You can find information about ICO at their website https://ico.org.uk/. We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our web site immediately. We do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site. The law requires us to determine how we process different categories of your personal information and to notify you of the basis for each category. If the basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant, then we shall immediately stop processing your data.

1.  INFORMATION WE PROCESS BECAUSE WE HAVE A CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION WITH YOU

When you buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.

In order to carry out our obligations under that contract, we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.

We may use it in order to:

1.1.          verify your identity for security purposes

1.2.         sell products to you

1.3.         provide you with our services

1.4.         provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website

We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract. We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.

2.  INFORMATION WE PROCESS WITH YOUR CONSENT

Where there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.

Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information, for example, by asking you to agree to our use of cookies.

Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.

Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally.

We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent, or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us info@leanne.photography

3.  INFORMATION WE PROCESS BECAUSE WE HAVE A LEGAL OBLIGATION

 

We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation. This can include your personal information.

4.  WEBSITE USAGE INFORMATION

We may use software embedded in our website (such as JavaScript) to collect information about pages you view and how you have reached them, what you do when you visit a page, the length of time you remain on the page, and how we perform in providing content to you.
