Data Protection Policies

What You Need to Know

In view of the growing concern about privacy and data protection on the internet, Lupine Light Images and Laura Dooley adhere to the developing standards for business websites in the US, and follow in the footsteps of the requirements set forth as of 25 May 2018 by the European Union.  The EU regulation requires telling website visitors:

 

  • whether their visits are tracked

  • what data may have been gathered

  • how it is used 

  • how it is stored

  • when it is deleted or destroyed

  • how visitors can request data deletion.

 

All personal data gathered through the Lupine Light Images website and third party online tools such as 123FormBuilder questionnaires and PayPal, are protected by the strongest internet firewall /security software available for small businesses, accessible by Laura Dooley and her authorized staff. Data collected online is limited to message sent via this website inquiring about photography sessions, and includes name, email address, and any personal details you may volunteer when asking about a photo session. Other communication transferred by phone or in any pre-session meetings that may include your home address and photography budget may be kept in the Lupine Light Images files in Juneau as handwritten or typed notes retained up to a year after your photo shoot, then removed. Digital files are purged and paper files are shredded.

Clients have the right to request return and/or destruction of all stored information pertaining to their photography sessions. These requests can be made by email to Laura@LupineLightImagesAlaska.com

Safe-Guarding Your Email Address

When you submit your email address in any of the opt in (contact or digital download) forms on this site, you are initiating a relationship with me in good faith, and I hold your requests for information and photography as a sacred trust.  Your name /email address are gathered only for the purpose of providing you with helpful resources in the quest for securing personal photographic images from Lupine Light Images.

 

Info provided via these opt in forms is stored in this website's server and account on Wix. Your messages are forwarded to me via G (google) Suite where the info is also kept in my gmail inbox for about 1 year or until you are no longer a client, then purged from my inbox.  I will never rent or sell your email address to any third party. 

 

It is possible that I may forward email to you from my joint venture partners when I deem that what they are offering is something you’d be interested in. Their offers will come from me, and your address will not be relinquished to them.

 

I ask only the type and extent of information on my opt-in forms that allows me to include you on the appropriate email list(s).

The Right to Remove Your Info from My Files

You have the right to be forgotten. In data protection terms that just means that you have the right to be deleted from my online accounts and computer systems. So do ask for that if you wish.  You always have the right to unsubscribe from any email newsletters I may send, and each email from me will have instruction on how to do that. Look for it at the bottom of the email. 

About Browser / Analytic Cookies

 

​This website's sitemap has been submitted to Google Search Console for site ranking purposes in Google's search engine. Google, like every other search engine and analytics program, uses computer code called cookies which can ascertain your general location, computer IP address, and type of device used (desktop / laptop / cell phone / tablet) for the purpose of tracking internet use by the general public. However, that information is not monitored by Laura Dooley, nor by this website's webhost, Wix. Your browser  -- whether Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla FireFox, Microsoft Edge, etc -- may track your browsing history. Neither Lupine Light Images, nor this website's host, Wix, have access to your browser history.

Cookies are bits of computer code that are both temporary and semi-permanent. The temporary ones disappear when you leave the website you're looking at. The semi-permanent ones can be removed by you by use of a cookie removal function provided by your browser or computer. A Google search on how to clear your cache and cookies can help you with that. Cookies and computer temp files should be routinely purged as part of the good computer maintenance that clears your cache and download history, and keeps your system running well.

​​

This website's webhost, Wix, does gather and aggregate minimal non-identifying information such as which pages and posts are visited the most, at what time of day on which days, on which social media any pages or posts are shared, and which countries visitors are coming from. We cannot see your IP address, or city.

 

You are encouraged to check this disclosure on subsequent visits to this website for further information in the unlikely event that changes to the analytics software have been made.
