Privacy

I take your privacy and the privacy of your children very seriously.  I am a parent myself and am very cautious about where I post my children's photos.  Information that I collect is used to keep a record of who is accessing our children's photos and to process orders.  Although photo galleries are not usually password protected, they are not generally accessible to anybody who does not have the proper Web address or access code.  I will not share your personal information with third parties not involved in the order fulfillment process.  By using this web site, you consent to the collection and use of this information.  If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please free to contact me using the Contact link at the top of this page or by sending an email message to photos@bmason.com.

Information Collected By This Web Site

This web site may collect information including your name, phone number, email address, and the name of your child who has been photographed.  Additional details, such as your shipping address, billing address, and credit card information may also be collected to process on-line transactions.    In addition, this web site contains images of various people, some of whom may be under the age of 18.  This web site is hosted by Zenfolio, who may collect information in addition to this.  Zenfolio's privacy policy can be found here.

How This Information Is Used

Access to the photo galleries may require you to register with your name, phone number, email address, and/or additional information.  This information may be stored for an indefinite period of time. The collection of this information is intended to keep a record of who has viewed the galleries and thus help protect the privacy of the people whose photographs appear in the galleries. I may also use this information to send out email messages describing services that I provide, updates to the web site, or other information that I believe may be relevant to those who have used this web site. I will not share this information with any third party, although this information is stored on the servers of Zenfolio, the company who hosts this site, and whose privacy policy can be found here

Information required to purchase items from this web site, such as addresses and credit card information are collected and stored by Zenfolio, the company that hosts this web site, and possibly shared with the companies that fulfill your orders. Zenfolio's privacy policy can be found here.  The companies that are used for order fulfillment include, but are not limited to Mpix, Imagine Your Photos (IYP), Fotoflōt, and PictureItPostage.  The privacy policies of these companies should be available on their respective web sites.

The galleries used to store images are not password protected, but they also are not generally accessible to those who do not have the proper web address (also known as a "URL" or "Uniform Resource Locator") that was provided to you to access the gallery. Posting the URL of a gallery to a public place, such as Facebook, will increase the chances that the URL of the gallery becomes publicly searchable and available. For this reason, and given that these galleries contain images of our children, I ask that you do not publish the URL of the gallery to any public web site.  Instead, please post the URL of the home page (http://photos.bmason.com/) or the "View Gallery" page (http://photos.bmason.com/clients.html) along with your access code.  This will allow friends and family to access the photos without publishing the URL in a public place that can be read by search engines.

I reserve the right to make changes to my policies at any time. However, I will not do so without posting the changes here.
