What Personal Data My Website Collects And Why

Contact Forms

One of the ways you can inquire about my photography services is trough the contact form. When you do that all the information provided is registered in a log in the database. I keep contact form submissions for an unlimited period for customer service purposes, but I do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purpose.


When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you leave a comment on my site, your name, email address and website are saved in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.


I use google analytics for SEO purposes.
Statistics about visits and keywords used are stored in Google Search Console and Analytics. This data is held for an unlimited amount of time.
