The GDPR is designed to protect you as an internet user from any breaches of trust. It is designed to do that in two ways;
1 – It makes consent to use your name and other data optional,
2-  If there is a breach, it forces the site/shop/business to tell you within hours, not months and months after a cyber attack.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, book me for a photoshoot, commission or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com, www.mountain-photography.co.uk (via WordPress website provider), Facebook or Instagram, or directly in person.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your purchase, booking or order, you must provide me with certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product/service that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom booking of photography, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including: as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support; when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list or blog (currently under construction) if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services.
