Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy for Anna Saverimuttu Photography

Your privacy is of the utmost importance and the Policy below sets out the steps taken by Anna Saverimuttu Photography to safeguard your privacy at all times and explains how information about you may be collected, stored or used.

This Policy may change from time to time, so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you are happy with any changes. By using this website, you’re agreeing to be bound by this Policy.


How Does Anna Saverimuttu Photography Collect Information About You?

Information about you is collected when you use this website, contact Anna Saverimuttu Photography in person, by phone, email, social media or text regarding products or services, receive a gift voucher for one of my workshops or a photo shoot or sign up to receive one of my email newsletters. The information collected is only used lawfully and in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2018. The provision of any data by you will indicate that you explicitly consent to the processing of this information so that your enquiry can be dealt with promptly.


What Type of Information is Collected From You?

The personal information collected might include some or all of the following, depending on the service you are using:


Contact Details

•    Name.
•    Address.
•    Email address. Anna Saverimuttu Photography may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our subsequent replies, in order to maintain a record of photographic bookings and assignments. This also applies when you sign up through any of our online forms using your email address or make a purchase on this website. 
•    Phone number.


Photo Shoot Details

•    How you would like to be photographed.
•    Purpose of photographs e.g. website, social media, personal use etc.
•    Makeup and outfit preferences.
•    Skin allergies.

If you purchase a service online, your card information is not held by Anna Saverimuttu Photography; it is collected by a third party payment processor, PayPal, whose privacy policy is available at https://www.paypal.com/ee/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-prev 

In addition, this website uses an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) connection. (URL’s that begin with “https” rather than “http” and show the padlock symbol indicate that SSL is used; this provides 3 important things – privacy, authentication and message integrity.) In an SSL connection each side of the connection must have a Security Certificate, which each side's software sends to the other. Each side then encrypts what it sends using information from both its own and the other side's Certificate, ensuring that only the intended recipient can de-crypt it, and that the other side can be sure the data came from the place it claims to have come from, and that the message has not been tampered with.


How is Your Information Used?

Anna Saverimuttu Photography only uses individuals’ or organisations’ data in ways they would reasonably expect. Data is never used in ways they would find intrusive or which could cause them harm.  

Anna Saverimuttu Photography may use your information to:

•    Plan and carry out a photo shoot which you have booked.
•    Inform a hair & makeup artist about your preferences for a portrait/boudoir shoot.
•    Plan a photography workshop or 1-1 tutorial so that it covers those areas most relevant to you.
•    Post a gift voucher to you.
•    Email information or files that you have requested.

•    Send you my photography newsletter if you have expressed interest at one of my photography workshops or a 1-1/1-2 session with me. 

•    Send you my women's newsletter if you have signed up to receive it via this website.
•    Carry out obligations arising from any contracts entered into by you and Anna Saverimuttu Photography.
•    Gain feedback on services or products provided to you.
•    Send you communications or updates that you have requested and that might be of interest to you.

If images from a photo shoot are used on the photographer’s websites, no additional information (e.g. full names, addresses etc) will accompany those images which could identify the subject. Images of boudoir clients or personal headshot clients will only be used after the client has given their consent by signing a Model Release Form.

Anna Saverimuttu Photography does not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit the website, unless you choose to provide such information to us, and such information will never be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties.


How is Your Information Stored?

Once a photo shoot has been completed and you have received your images, all files are stored offline at the premises of Anna Saverimuttu Photography.  Contact details and other personal information are also stored offline, except in the case of information in emails stored by email providers.

Retention periods for personal information are reviewed regularly, with a current default period of 7 years unless you advise otherwise, after which data may be destroyed. Generally your personal information will be held on my systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity. In the case of photographs, files are kept to ensure that should a client lose the original images they ordered, a backup copy can be supplied. For personal portrait and boudoir clients, images will be retained for the same reasons unless you advise otherwise, and if a Model Release Form has been signed by you giving consent for your images to be used in the legitimate promotion of the business of Anna Saverimuttu Photography, images may continue to be used unless you advise otherwise. You have a right at any time to request access to any information held about you and to ask Anna Saverimuttu Photography to delete such information.


Who Has Access to Your Information?

Anna Saverimuttu Photography will never sell or rent your information to third parties. Neither will your information ever be shared with third parties for marketing purposes. Only the photographer has access to your information, except in cases where a hair and makeup artist or stylist has been booked and needs to contact you separately.


Requesting Access to the Information Held About You

You are at any time entitled to request from Anna Saverimuttu Photography a copy of the information that is held about you. If this includes access to images that were taken of you during a photo shoot but not subsequently ordered by you, these will be supplied as low resolution files stamped with “PROOF”. There is no right of access to images that were taken of you during a photo shoot but subsequently deleted by Anna Saverimuttu Photography.

Security Precautions to Protect the Loss, Misuse or Alteration of Your Data


When you provide personal information to Anna Saverimuttu Photography, I take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted by third party payment processors. When you are on a secure page on my website, a padlock icon will appear in your web browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.


Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the internet, and can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to me, and you do so at your own risk. Once your information is received, Anna Saverimuttu Photography will do everything possible to ensure its security. Where I have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of my websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Please do not to share your password with anyone.
