Lets get legal!
I'm not going to sugar coat this for you, its quite a novel so ya might want to settle down with a snack and a glass of wine!

In Brief:

What happens with my details??
When you first make contact me, I ask for your name, email, contact number and address etc. All details needed to do my job. This is purely for me to contact you throughout the process, and then send on the goods once I have finished the job. I do not pass your details onto anyone, sell your details to third parties or use your details at all other than for the sake of the job you have hired me to do! -- your name might be used to be printed onto a USB, so that would be the only slight third party involvement. Other than that. Your details are safe with me stored onto a password protected system that no one else has access to.

What are you going to do with my photos??
All photos are stored onto a hard drive that no one else has access to! If there are any particular images you do not want shared on social media, this can all be discussed in the early stages and would be included in your contract.

Make sense? No? ...Really?
Well, to be baffled further, see below for a full outline of my Privacy Policy.
(this is where the wine and snacks might come in handy)
