How long we retain your data

While we do not hold personal data any longer than we need to, the duration will depend on your relationship with us and whether it is ongoing.  We may keep some of your personal data for up to 7 years after our working contract with you or your subsequent purchases have finished for Tax legislation purposes.  After this time, we will archive your photographs indefinitely along with your relevant details and consent forms. This is due to requests for replacement images being made several years after being taken.

For video products or photograph and video linked products, we will keep your photos, videos and any necessary personal information related to them for as long as we are able to make this service available to you.

For mailing lists, we will keep your data on file until you unsubscribe.  We may periodically ask you whether you wish to remain subscribed.

If you leave a comment on our website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
