International transfers of your personal data
The EU has prohibited personal data being transferred outside of the EEA unless sufficient data safety laws exist. Some of our third party service providers are based outside of the EEA. So using these services will involve a transfer of data outside of the EEA.
We will try to ensure these companies observe a similar level of data security as the EEA by making sure they are located in countries that the EU have stated have adequate data security for personal information. Companies based in USA are generally part of the US/EU Privacy Shield agreement and we will transfer data to them as they have similar security protection to the EEA.
We will only use third parties outside of EEA/USA who use certification mechanisms approved by the EU giving your data the same security as in the EU.
If we have to transfer your personal data to a third party/country without adequate protection as defined by the EU we will request your explicit consent. You will have the right to cancel this consent at any time.

How long will we keep your personal details?
As a photography business, we aim to keep your personal information for an undetermined period of time. This is for your benefit, as you may need to replace some of the images you have bought in the future or buy some of the images you did not buy originally.
As stated elsewhere in this document you have the right to contact us to have this data deleted or altered.
However, we reserve the right to delete your data at any point after we are allowed to do so by law and are under no obligation to keep your images or data forever.

Please note: all images are the copyright of Photos For Life Photography and we may do anything the law allows us to do with them including deleting them at any time. We are under no obligation to delete your images if you ask us to. However, we will evaluate any request to do so on its merits with Photos For Life Photography being the sole judge of those merits.
