3) DATA USAGE POLICY
Andrew Cooper Photographer complies with applicable data protection regulations in all territories where the business trades and promotes its services. We continually review where and how our business collects, uses, stores and disposes of personal data. We also review our supplier contracts
to ensure compliance throughout our supply chain. All business officers and associates understand the legal obligations regarding data privacy and security.
Any personal data we collect is used for the purposes of fulfilling requests for information, promoting our services, setting up gallery pages on our website to provide secure and private access for our customers, and communicating with individuals to keep them informed of our business activities and progress where we believe that to be of legitimate interest. We typically collect personal information when an order or contract is placed with Andrew Cooper Photographer; when we receive an enquiry or a request for a quotation; from correspondence by telephone, email or in writing; where the form on this website’s Contact page is completed and submitted; and when we receive a correspondence request from marketing initiatives that we may produce from time to time. Unless there is a specific legal requirement for us to delete or keep data, we will retain information for as long as it is relevant for the purposes we collected it.
Andrew Cooper Photographer will not sell, trade, or transfer any personal data we hold to outside parties. To assist in the operation of our website, or to help us conduct our business, or to deliver services required of us by individuals or other businesses, we may share such information with trusted third parties who warrant their compliance with all current regulations, including obligations in relation to the confidentiality, security and lawful processing of any data. We will not generally disclose personal data without consent. However, we may access and release information to prevent and detect crime, or where such release is required by law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Andrew Cooper Photographer, its officers, employees, associates, or others.
Data protection regulations grant the right to request a copy of the personal data held by Andrew Cooper Photographer by contacting us via email at the email address given on this website. We will respond within 30 days of request. Exceptions to this right may render us unable to make all information available if, for example, we are legally prevented from disclosing such information, or if requests received are manifestly unfounded or excessive. We may require proof of identity or other personal information before we can process calls or enquiries further.
The right to request the deletion of personal data also exists where, for example, such data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, or consent to its processing is withdrawn. Andrew Cooper Photographer aims to keep personal data accurate and relevant and will update or delete such data if instructed to do so.
