Privacy Policy

PERSONAL DATA

Personal data submitted on this website is used solely for the purpose(s) to which you consented at the time of submission.

Barry Hackett Photography does not share personal data with anyone else unless it is necessary to do so in order to provide the service requested by you. Furthermore, only in the event that we have made full disclosure of said sharing to you or when we have reasonable good faith that disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable laws or regulations or in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or to detect and prevent fraud, security, or technical issues. By using this website, you consent to us disclosing your personal data to third parties for these purposes only. Any personal data you submit will not be sold, traded, or rented under any circumstances.

THIRD-PARTY VENDORS

At times this website will contain links to the website of a third-party vendor we have affiliation with or have retained to perform services on our behalf. Furthermore, you will know that you are on a third-party vendor’s website because that website will have a different appearance and your browser’s address bar will change. When we select third-party vendors, and periodically thereafter, we inspect their privacy and data protection policies to ensure that they meet the same standards we use for our own policies. However, we cannot guarantee user safety on a third-party website and are accordingly not liable for any malfeasance therein encountered. If you have questions about a third-party vendor’s policies, please see the policy listed on their website.

SECURITY

We take the security of your personal data very seriously. We protect your personal data during transit using encryption. We use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical, electronic, and procedural security measures to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us.

Additionally, the Data Protection Policy on this site outlines how Barry Hackett Photography handles your personal data and to what lengths we go to protect that data. To learn more about what protocols are in place to protect this website, your data, and your use of this site, read the Data Protection Policy. To learn about the terms that govern users’ consumption of this site and what Barry Hackett Photography permits and prohibits, read the Terms of Use.

ACCOUNTS

The e-mail address that you supply when creating an account on this website (and its sub-domain) will be used to contact you regarding your account. For example, if you forget your username or password and request assistance with logging in, assistance will be provided by means of a message sent to the e-mail address entered in your user profile.

Additionally, the email address you supply via this website or in-office is stored with your profile for record-keeping and marketing purposes. That information is neither shared nor sold for any monetary gain. Marketing emails are sent using a confidential third-party platform. Each email contains a link to unsubscribe or to manage your subscription status. Additionally, each email links back to the third-party marketing platform which Barry Hackett Photography entrusts with your sensitive information.

PAYMENTS

If you make a purchase on our website, we collect your name and contact information. To accept payments via credit card, we use accredited online payment processing services with world-class security and data privacy policies. We do not store or have access to your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services. The payment recipient keeps records of the financial transactions. This includes records of the date of the payment, the amount paid, and the method of payment. This will enable us to meet with accounting standards and respond to any questions from you that arise during that period.

OTHER SENSITIVE INFORMATION

You may submit personal data (such as your name, electronic mail address, and telephone number) for purposes other than a purchase or creating an account (such as to request a free consultation). We collect, store, and use this information only for the purposes for which you submitted it and only as long as necessary.

COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

We collect certain information by automated means when you visit our website. We collect this information through “cookies,” “web beacons,” and similar technologies. The use of the term cookie in this privacy policy is broad and includes similar technologies like “local storage.”

COOKIES

Like most websites, when you visit this website a small amount of data known as a “cookie” may be stored on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer’s hard drive. There are various types of cookies that perform different functions and generally improve your experience on the website.

The types of cookies used on this website can be classified into one of three categories:

STRICTLY NECESSARY COOKIES

These are essential in order to enable you to use certain features of the website, such as logging in or submitting forms on the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, such as requesting a consultation, cannot be provided. These also include cookies that allow us to provide a service explicitly requested by you during a browser session. These cookies don’t gather information about you that could be used for marketing; neither can they remember where you have been on the Internet.

FUNCTIONALITY COOKIES

These cookies are used to allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your username) and provide enhanced features to improve your web experience. Your preferences are never sold with any third-party.

ANALYTICAL COOKIES

These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use this website. For instance, the number of visits or the average duration of a visit to this website. The information is only used to improve how this website works and is never sold to any third-party.

Some cookies are first-party cookies that are set by our website. Others are third-party cookies set by a different domain. We use first-party and third-party cookies.

WEB BEACONS

Pages of our website may contain small electronic files known as web beacons that allow us to record activity, such as when you visit a certain page. Web beacons are used to track usage of this website and monitor its performance. For example, a third-party cookie we use is associated with Google Analytics. Google Analytics is used to monitor page views and visitor statistics in relation to the popularity and consumption of this website. Please see Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

USE OF IP ADDRESSES

An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on the internet. We use your IP address to help analyze usage patterns and diagnose problems on this website and to improve the service we offer to you.

We have enabled the use of several necessary cookies to tell us whether you have visited the website before or to annotate the Internet Protocol Address (IP Adress) from which you have pinged to our site. Such information is never sold to any third-party. Your visits and pinging location are kept confidential and are only in place to protect this website and your sensitive data from malicious users.

YOUR CHOICE

Most browsers allow you to turn off cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored on your device. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn about how to do this. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of all of our website features.

Additionally, we have posted a notice on our site. Upon entry to our website, you will be notified that cookies are in use. Should you be uncomfortable with such use, we advise you to immediately discontinue use of our site.

ACTIVE SCRIPTING OR JAVASCRIPT

Scripting is used to improve the functionality of the site. Using scripting technology allows the site to return information more quickly to you. Scripting is never used by the site to install software on your computer or to collect unauthorized information from you. Active scripting or JavaScript must be enabled in the browser for some portions of the site to work correctly. Most browsers allow this feature to be enabled or disabled for specific sites. Consult the browser’s help documentation to learn how to enable scripting for selected sites.

YOUR RIGHTS

Your use of this website is provided free of charge. You are not required to open an account, make a purchase, or take any action that requires providing personal data in order to benefit from the website. However, if you voluntarily decide to open an account, make a purchase, request a free consultation, or otherwise take any action that involves providing personal data, you consent to this Privacy and Cookies Policy; the storage of data on servers located in the United States of America; the collection, processing, transfer, and storage of your personal data by Barry Hackett Photography and organizations that support Barry Hackett Photography as needed to process your requested action.

If you fail to provide the required personal data to open an account, make a purchase, or for any other benefit from the website that requires such personal data, we will be unable to fulfill your request.
