Privacy Policy

YOUR INFORMATION IS SAFE

 

GES Who Photography and any affiliated parties ("GES Who Photography," "we," "us," or "our") is committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of all users of the GES Who Photography website, where this Privacy Policy is posted. As such, we have established and implemented this Privacy Policy to inform visitors of the website and users of our services how we use and protect the information we collect through the website. By visiting our  website, you consent to our collection, use, disclosure, transfer, and storage of information relating to you as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

 

TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

 

Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You need to submit personal information to access certain aspects of the website, and to access or to request our services.

 

We may collect information from you, such as your name, address, zip code, email address, telephone number, language, gender, location information, and date of birth, when utilizing the website and our services. You may also be required to provide a billing address and debit/credit card, or other payment information. No information of this type will be collected unless you have decided to book our photography services or would like to purchase stock photographs we may have for sale.

 

When you share information and website links with family, friends, and others, or send/share GES Who Photography promotions and marketing materials, we may collect the information you provide about those people, such as name, address, email address, and phone number.

 

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

The personal information you provide to us will allow us to:

 

1. Fulfill your product or service order.

2. Alert you of new products or services, features, or enhancements.

3. Handle your customer service questions or issues.

4. Administer promotions and contests.

5. Display relevant marketing to you.

6. Notify you of promotions, updates, or special offers that we think may interest you.

 

We also use your email address and phone number as part of our services, in sending you messages about your photo shoot, event, wedding, or any other general announcements.

 

We keep track of your interactions with us, including but not limited to your activity within our website. We may use personal information that you provide to us to send messages to you in response to your request to perform an activity, in connection with your use of any of our services. We may also use your personal information to contact you when necessary. From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases, and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with GES Who Photography, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.

 

We may use your personal information with non-personal information that we have collected, in a manner such that the end product does not personally identify you or any other user of our services. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information.

 

You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect in providing our services (the “Analytical Data”). We are expressly authorized to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer from us any part of the Analytical Data that personally identifies any GES Who Photography client or website user.

 

cookies and other stored information

 

Our website may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our website people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information.

 

“Cookies” are small bits of electronic information that a website sends to a visitor’s browser and are stored on the visitor’s hard drive. Like many websites, we employ cookies and other technologies in certain areas of our website to allow us to provide information to make your online experience more convenient. For example, when you return to the website after logging in, cookies provide information to the website so that the website will remember who you are on subsequent visits; speeding up or enhancing your experience of the GES Who Photography experience by, for instance, tailoring content to you. Cookies also prevent items placed in a shopping basket from disappearing by the time you checkout.

 

You may be able to disable cookies on your web browser through your browser settings – please consult your browser’s help menu for assistance. Please note that certain aspects of the GES Who Photography website will not be available once cookies are disabled.

 

In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Site. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

 

A pixel tag or web beacon is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel by 1 pixel, that is placed on a website or in an email that is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website or sending the email.  We may use web beacons and/or pixel tags for many purposes, including site usage analytics, advertising, auditing and reporting, and content and advertising personalization.

 

We may contract with third parties to assist us in gathering such data and to manage our advertising on other sites.  These companies may also use tracking technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information about your visits to our website and others, and your interaction with our communications, including advertising, to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests.

 

logGED USER information

 

Our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Site. This information includes your Internet Protocol address, your browser type and version, the search engine you used to find the GES Who Photography website, if any, referring and exit pages, date/time stamp, and clickstream data, which of our website pages you use, and how long you use them. We use this information to monitor and analyze how users access and use our website, to provide customer service, to maintain and improve the GES Who Photography experience, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  We may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

 

Children's privacy

 

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. We take children’s privacy seriously, and encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times.

We use your personal information to complete transactions, respond to your requests, deliver products and services you request, and send communications to you about promotions, updates, or special offers (which may be offered by GES Who Photography or one of its business partners) that may be of interest to you. We may share your personal information with carefully selected vendors and business partners, including companies that perform marketing services and other business operations for us. We may also use your personal information to provide analyses of our users in the aggregate (including Analytical Data subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy) to prospective partners and other third parties. In addition, we will share the personal information we collect from you under the following circumstances:

 

Protection of rights. We will share personal information if we have a good faith belief that (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or a request by law enforcement or governmental authorities, (ii) such action is appropriate to enforce our Terms of Use for GES Who Photography, including any investigation of potential violations thereof, (iii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with the GES Who Photography experience, or (iv) such action is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of GES Who Photography, its employees, users of our website, or others.

 

Asset transfers. If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of GES Who Photography’s assets, user information, including personal information collected from you through your use of the website or services provided by GES Who Photography, could be included in the transferred assets. Should such an event occur, we will use reasonable means to notify you through email and/or a prominent notice on the website.

 

Service Providers. We may share your personal information with service providers that we engage for the purpose of processing information on our and your behalf. For example, we may partner with other companies to process payments for the our services. Additionally, we may partner with other companies to process, analyze, and/or store data, including, but not limited to, Analytical Data. While providing services for us, these companies may access your personal information. To the extent applicable, we require these entities to comply with this Privacy Policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

You should refer to the privacy policies and statements of other websites or contact the respective webmasters of those websites to obtain information regarding their information collection, use, and disclosure policies.
