Privacy Policy 

Who I am

This website is owned and managed by John Boaz Photography. You can find the address of my office

at the bottom of this page.

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

2016).

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Wix

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

your data on secure servers behind a firewall. You can read Wix.com’s privacy policy here .

Custom

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

separately.

Contact forms

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.

Cookies

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

website.

Analytics

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.

Your rights with respect to personal data

You have the following rights with respect to your personal data:

● You have the right to know why your personal data is needed, what will happen to it, and how

long it will be retained for.

● Right of access: You have the right to access your personal data that is known to me.

● Right to rectification: you have the right to supplement, correct, have deleted or blocked your

personal data whenever you wish.

● If you give me your consent to process your data, you have the right to revoke that consent and

to have your personal data deleted.

● Right to transfer your data: you have the right to request all your personal data from the

controller and transfer it in its entirety to another controller.

● Right to object: you may object to the processing of your data. I comply with this unless there

are justified grounds for processing.

To exercise these rights, please contact me. Please refer to the contact details at the bottom of this

Privacy Policy. If you have a complaint about how I handle your data, I would like to hear from you, but

you also have the right to submit a complaint to the supervisory authority (the Information

Commissioner's Office (ICO)).

Privacy policy updates

I reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and

clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If I make material changes

to this policy, I will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information

I collect, how I use it, and under what circumstances, if any, I use and/or disclose it.

Questions or requests

If you have any questions regarding this privacy policy or to request a copy, update or deletion of your

data, you may contact me using the information below:
