The privacy policy and terms of use which describes how this site works and how information is handled.

Privacy Policy

I’m John Rees and I own this website - ‘John Rees Photography’.

I’m committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to my web site. In particular, I want you to know that I am not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. I just don’t do that sort of thing. 

This privacy policy, provides information on when and why I collect your personal information, how I use it, the limited conditions under which I may disclose it to others and how I keep it secure. 

When someone visits my site, I use various analytics tools to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. I don’t make, and don’t allow Google or any other analytics provider, to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting my website. 

When you sign up for email updates this means that you join my mailing list. As part of this process, I collect personal information which I use for a few reasons;

  • To tell you about stuff you’ve asked me to tell you about!

  • To contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional information.

  • To check my records are correct and to check every now and then that you’re happy to hear from me.

I may use a third-party provider such as MailChimp to deliver various messages, information and services to you. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help me monitor and improve the quality and relevance of the content I send you. For more information on this, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. Here’s a link to it. 

You can unsubscribe to general mailings from me at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of the emails I send you, or by contacting me directly. You can connect with me in many ways as I show on my website.

You can buy workshops or prints from me online through my site. You can pay through PayPal or by using any credit and debit card. You can even use ApplePay. However you pay, I don’t see your card details. These are stored with the payment provider you use. The online shop on my site just links with them and the transaction uses all the usual security measures they have. 

I will NEVER ask you for any personal financial details such as your user name and password, card number or PIN. If you ever get an email purporting to be from me asking for such details, please ignore it. Do NOT send any details or click on any links in  such a message. If this does happen, please send me a separate message by email telling me about this and I’ll investigate it.

If you want to, you can also access the information I hold on you to amend or delete it. If you want to do any of this just get in touch with me.
