Who we are
Types of data we collect
We may collect personal identification information from you in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when you visit our website, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our website. We collect personal data in a fair, lawful and transparent manner.
When you enquire about our services we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
When you enquire about or purchase a service from us we store your information in our customer relationship management software, Tavé. This is so that we can make sure that we have all the details we need to plan and execute services at the high quality that you deserve.
This is the information we may collect for an enquiry:
- Phone numbers
- Home address
- Event date
This is the information we may collect for offering refunds for a service:
- PayPal address
- Bank account details
You may submit personal information to payment gateways while using our service. The personal information is sent directly from your browser to the payment gateway, bypassing our service.
We may ask for any people you have supplying services or products at your event so we can share your incredible photos with them.
You can always refuse to supply personal identification information, except that it may prevent us from providing our service to them.
We may collect non-personal identification information about you whenever you interact with our website. The non-personal identification information may include the browser, device information, operating system, time, location, and I.P. address of logins, the internet service providers utilised, account creation date, order history and other similar information.
