Your privacy is critically important to us. At Chin Photography we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

It is Chin Photography’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Chin Photography collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Chin Photography’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Chin Photography’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Chin Photography may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Chin Photography’s websites choose to interact with Chin Photography in ways that require Chin Photography to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Chin Photography gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Chin Photography – by submitting an enquiry, scheduling a photo shoot, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Chin Photography collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Chin Photography. Chin Photography does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain interactions.
Chin Photography may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. Chin Photography may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Chin Photography does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Chin Photography discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Chin Photography’s behalf or to provide services available at Chin Photography’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Chin Photography’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Chin Photography will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Chin Photography discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Chin Photography believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Chin Photography, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered client of an Chin Photography website and have supplied your email address, Chin Photography may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Chin Photography and our products. We primarily use our blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Chin Photography takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
