This privacy statement provides you with details of how Greg Williams Photography Limited (“GWP”) will collect, store and use the personal data you supply to it as the operator of this website including any related mobile site, application, podcast, print magazine, email newsletter and/or other service (“the Website”).

This page is used to inform website visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of personally identifiable information (“Personally Identifiable Information”).

If you choose to use the Website, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation with this policy. The Personally Identifiable Information that we collect is used for providing and improving the services we provide. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

The terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, which are accessible through the Website, unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy.

In using this Website, you may provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to GWP. By providing such information you consent to its use and storage in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Policy. We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information.

GWP will hold your information only for as long as necessary for each purpose we use it for and to comply with our legal obligations. We are obliged to supply you, on request, with  a copy of the Personally Identifiable Information we hold about you. If you wish to find out what information we hold for you, or to have it amended or removed from our database and Website, or if you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, you can email us at [email protected] at any time and we will respond in a timely manner. We may charge a reasonable fee for data subject access requests. Should you discover any inaccuracies in such Personally Identifiable Information, please notify us as soon as possible and we will then correct our records.

The law on data protection sets out several different reasons why a company may collect and process your personal data and we have the duty to make sure you understand which of these lawful bases we are using to process your Personally Identifiable Information.

  1. Consent – GWP shall only use your Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes for which it is provided or for purposes to which you have expressly consented. In addition if you expressly consent, we will be able to contact you with information and news updates about GWP. We will ensure all communications you receive from us are relevant and of appropriate frequency. We do not allow third parties to use the Personally Identifiable Information we collect.
  2. Legitimate Interest – In specific situations, we require your Personally Identifiable Information to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests e.g. we may personalise marketing content provided to you. We will only use legitimate interest after we have properly evaluated the data processing and conducted a necessary balancing test. We will also give data subjects the right to object to the processing at any time.
  3. Contractual Obligations – In certain circumstances, we need your Personally Identifiable Information to comply with our contractual obligations. E.g. when you purchase a print subscription to a magazine, we will keep your name and address to fulfil your subscription.
  4. Legal compliance – If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your Personally Identifiable Information. E.g. we can pass on details of people involved in fraud or other criminal activity affecting us to law enforcement.

Cookies are files with a small amount of data that is commonly used as an anonymous unique identifier. These are sent to your browser from the website that you visit and are stored on your computer’s hard drive.

The Website uses these “cookies” to collect information and to improve our services. You have the option to either accept or refuse these cookies, and know when a cookie is being sent to your computer. If you choose to refuse our cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our services.

We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:

  1. To facilitate our services;
  2. To provide the service on our behalf;
  3. To perform related services; or
  4. To assist us in analysing how our services are used.

We want to inform our users that these third parties may have access to your Personally Identifiable Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.

We value your trust in providing us your Personally Identifiable Information, thus we are striving to use all commercially reasonable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

GWP may provide links to third party websites and equally links to the Website may appear on third party websites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to the Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Website and does not apply to third party websites and services that are not under our control.
