What Information Do We Store ?
We need a certain minimum amount of information to process your order and be able to contact you again about the course or tour. So we require a minimum: this means your name, your email and usually your mobile telephone number. We only want the minimum from you and we do not store it online for a long time. We keep our main records offline in a secure place.
Other information that we might store relates to gift certificates where we need to know who the recipients are – so you are giving out their basic information like name and email address to us on their behalf so that we can process the certificates.
We have several forms relating to large groups, educational establishments, companies where we might need extra information like the name of the company/school and the numbers involved – including email for returning replies. When you fill in one of these forms you are filling it in on their behalf. There is also room for you to give extra information which you deem appropriate to the enquiry – this information is also stored.
We never take financial information since we leave that to Papal who are experts in security. We don’t take that information in the first place but we can check it as necessary through our Paypal account details.
We do not contract our website out to external web-masters who would have access to passwords etc. Our database is kept on secure servers separate from the main website and they cannot be accessed except through our own web-space.
What do we Use this Information For ?
We use this to process your orders efficiently and so we can answer any enquiries you may have about your own booking(s). Once you course has been completed we keep the information as a record but this information will be taken offline and kept offline in a secure place usually within 6 months.
We may use the information we have to send out a very occasional newsletter (we have never sent out more than 4 a year since 2005). We only send them out when we have something to say e.g. let you know of anew course or an extra special offer for former customers.
We do not and don’t intend to pass on or sell details of any customer to an third party. The data is for the uses of londonphototours.co.uk. We might use this data to inform you of other domains that are run entirely by us but we would keep your data to londonphtotours.co.uk only.
