Who I am
This website is owned and managed by John Boaz Photography.
The website address is www.johnboaz.co.uk.
I am committed to protecting your privacy and we will only use the information that I collect about you
lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and EU General Data Protection Regulation
What personal data I collect and why I collect it
This website is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides me with the online platform that
allows me to advertise products and services to you and handle customer enquiries. Your data may be
stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store
When you initiate an enquiry I store the contact information you provide in order to respond to leads
and provide a consistent and professional service. I will keep information on transactions as long as
reasonable for filing and future custom.
I don’t directly collect any bank details through this website and all business payments are handled
When visitors submit a query through the website’s contact form it collects the data shown in the form,
and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Website cookies help the business understand how the website serves visitors and what they like to
browse, and therefore they help me to customise and improve your experience of my website. They
don’t allow me to personally identify any visitors and are not harmful to you or your computer/device.
You can block cookies by activating settings in your browser that refuse some or all cookies ( see this
browser cookie blocking guide ). If you do so you may not be able to access parts or features of this
Like many other websites, this website tracks visits to the website using Wix Analytics. This data helps
to pick up problems and optimise this website to be as useful to visitors as possible.
Data collected can include page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction
information and methods used to browse away from the page. However, all this information is
anonymised and we are unable to identify individual visitors through analytics data alone, so this is not
identifiable personal information.
Why we collect user information
We collect such non-personal and personal information for the following purposes:
1. To provide and operate services;
2. To provide users with ongoing customer assistance and technical support;
3. To create aggregated statistical data and other aggregated and/or inferred non-personal
information, which I may use to provide and improve my respective services;
4. To comply with any applicable laws and regulations.
Who I share your data with
I do not and never will sell your data to any other company. I will not email you in the future unless
you have given me your consent.
The providers of analytics tools in use on this site may use data they collect in order to customise
content, including advertisements, that they show to you on other sites, just as they do when you visit
those sites (e.g when performing a Google search or watching a YouTube video).
How long I retain your data
If you submit a message through the website contact form, the message and its metadata are retained
indefinitely. This is so I can respond to any further related enquiries in future.
Where I send your data
Submissions of the contact form are emailed to the email address listed on the same contact page,
which is checked and responded to by John Cooper. When necessary I’ll then forward your email to
relevant parties proportional to your request.
How I protect your data
When you load this website the connection is encrypted by a 256bit SSL security certificate, making
data transferred between your router and the website’s server unintelligible to anyone else.
A security certificate also encrypts the transfer of emails from this site (e.g contact form submissions)
to my email account, but the security of any subsequent forwarding of email is dependent on the
security of those respective external email services.
