SITE ACTIVITY DATA
I consider Internet user privacy and data protection to be of paramount importance.
Each time you visit our website www.claudiagriffinphotography.co.uk the web server collects and logs certain information. I keep these access logs for a reasonable period of time. These logs include, but are not restricted to: your computer’s TCP/IP address, your username (if applicable), date, time and files accessed. These logs also contain information about referrer information if you clicked on an external link in order to access a webpage. I use these logs solely for performance, site administration and security reviews. I do not sell or share this information with any third party.
I collect only personal information about you, such as your name, address, email address, or telephone number that you voluntarily provide to me. For example, I may receive personal information about you when you send me an email through my website or message me through my Facebook page. I do not sell any personal information I receive through my website to any third party, nor will I add such information to any bulk email list I may prepare.
