On May 25, 2018, new data privacy laws — the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) — take effect across the European Union. These laws provide consumers with more control over their personal data.
Lume Photography is fully aligned with the spirit of the GDPR for a safe and secure Internet. I aspire to embrace privacy by design and, whenever possible, to not collect and store personally identifiable information. For the personal data I do collect, I am committed to your right to privacy and to being transparent about how and why Lume Photography stores your data.
YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT
Updated May 22th, 2018
Your privacy is important to me, and so is being transparent about how I collect, use and share information about you.
Lume Photography Will Never Share Your Personal Information
Your personal information is yours, and I respect that. So I don’t share your personal information with anybody for any reason. Period. The only exception to this is if I am required to share your personal information with law enforcement or to respond to lawful requests such as a subpoena.
How I Use Your Information
I use your personal information as follows:
to respond to comments and questions and provide customer service.
to send information including confirmations, invoices, notices, updates, news, and support and administrative messages.
to protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.
to provide and deliver products and services customers request.
Log Files and Web Beacons
Like many other Web sites, Lume Photography makes use of log files and web beacons. These files merely log visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. Web beacons are used (sometimes) to tell if you open or act on my emails. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information, are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. Again, this is done to measure and improve the performance of my Service.
Third Party Privacy Policies
Information Choices And Changes
Most emails I send you will be about my business dealings with you. Sometimes, I may send you non-essential emails, but these emails will have a clear way to “opt-out.” If you opt out, you will no longer receive non-essential emails from me.
You can typically remove and reject cookies from my Service with your browser settings. Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings. If you remove or reject cookies, it could affect how our Service works for you. So just a heads up on that. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers’ respective websites. What Are Cookies?
Security Of Your Personal And Customer Information
I take the security of your personal and customer information very seriously, and so I follow industry-standard protocols to protect it.
