Privacy Policy

Rob Dodsworth Photography is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

(1) What information do we collect? 
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:

  1. information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website, such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation;
  2. information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us
  3. information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters
  4. any other information that you choose to send to us.

Where you submit personal information for publication on our website, we will publish and otherwise use that information in accordance with the licence you grant to us.

We will not, without your express consent, provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

(2) Cookies
 We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may send a cookie which may be stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability. We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our website, and to personalise our website for you.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

(3) Using your personal data
 Personal data submitted on this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy, or, in relevant parts of the website.
We may use your personal information to:


  1. administer the website;

  2. improve your browsing experience by personalising the website;

  3. enable your use of the services available on the website;

  4. send you general commercial communications;

  5. send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;

  6. send you our newsletter and other marketing communications (relating to our business which we think may be of interest to you by email, or, similar technology) you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications to be sent by emailing us;
  7. deal with enquiries and complaints made by, or, about you relating to the website;


We will not, without your express consent, provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

(4) Other disclosures We may disclose information about you to any of our employees, officers, agents, suppliers, or, subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy policy. In addition we may disclose your personal information:

  1. to the extent that we are required to do so by law;

  2. in connection with any legal proceedings, or, prospective legal proceedings;

  3. in order to establish, exercise, or, defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);

  4. to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court, or, other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court, or, authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.

Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

(5) Security of your personal data 
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse, or, alteration of your personal information. Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password except when you log in to the website.

(6) Policy amendments 
We may update this privacy policy from time to time by posting a new version on our website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes.

(7) Your rights
 You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information may be subject to the payment of a fee (currently fixed at £10.00). 
You may instruct us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes by email at any time. (In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal data for marketing purposes, or, we will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal data for marketing purposes.)

(8) Third party websites 
The website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies, or, practices of third party websites.
