Information we collect:

For product orders, we need to know your name, email address, delivery address, billing address, payment details, and phone contact number. We will pass on your delivery information and contact number to our wall art production team if we send your order directly to your chosen address, as opposed to you picking it up from our studio.

During the session, as part of our contract and our Model release documents, we will ask you for the model’s name, contact details, model address, and date of birth.

If you communicate with us by mobile or email, we may use those contact details to respond to you.

Suppose you have taken part in a group photograph. In that case, you agree that you do so voluntarily and on the basis that your image may be displayed on the Site or any other website, in printed publications, made available for purchase by other customers, and may be used by us for promotional purposes. Due to the number of people involved in a group photograph, you will not be able to withdraw your consent once the photograph has been taken.

When you visit the Site, we may automatically collect additional information about you, such as the type of internet browser you use, any websites from which you have come to the Site and your IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web server.

You cannot be identified from this information, and it’s only used to assist us in providing an effective service on the Site.

We may disclose your relevant personal information to assist us in providing the service we offer, processing transactions, fulfilling requests for information, receiving and sending communications, updating marketing lists, providing support services and other tasks from time to time. However, Dawn Hilton Photography and our contractors and service providers will only use your information to the extent necessary to perform their functions.

We may disclose your personal information if required by law to prevent fraud or cybercrime and protect the Site or any person’s rights, property or personal safety.

We may store images taken by Dawn Hilton Photography for seven years. Occasionally images may be stored indefinitely, if needed to prove copyright or if shot for portfolio purposes.
