Privacy Policy

My aim is to provide exceptional images, not bombard you with marketing emails. At Adam Hollingworth Photography, I treat your personal data with the respect and care it deserves. It is never sold to third parties, ever.

As a commercial photographer, it is important that clients can get in touch to discuss potential photographic assignments. In order to communicate effectively about such assignments, it is necessary to collect a client’s email address and telephone number so that I may respond to enquiries via email or discuss details via the telephone. Once a client has confirmed a booking, it is necessary to collect address details in order to attend the shoot or visit the client and send in the post items purchased via my online store or ordered in person.

Contact Form

The Contact Form on my website is usually the first stop for my clients and asks for a potential client’s name, email address and telephone number. Most communication is carried out via email but sometimes it is necessary to either discuss the finer detail over the telephone or follow up an email conversation that has ceased, in case my emails have unintentionally reached the potential client’s spam or junk folders.

The information collected from the Contact Form on my website is stored both in my website’s database (hosted by a third party who complies with GDPR and does not use or sell that information) and is sent to my email address.

Corporate Clients

Corporate clients will provide their business email address, telephone number and address in order to discuss the booking and for me to be able to attend the shoot to complete the assignment. In some cases this may include providing a third party’s address, email address and telephone number e.g. a hotel or conference venue hosting the client’s event but would never include the personal details of an individual.
