Welcome to the website of Ashley Holmes Photography.
The website is provided by Zenfolio Inc. “zenfolio” who are an online subscription service that provides photographers with a platform for organising, exhibiting and selling their services and products. As the website provider, Zenfolio have a User Agreement which can be viewed on the Homepage https://www.ashleyholmesphotography.co.uk/ and which should be read in conjunction with the following:
We are fully covered for Public Liability Insurance for no less than £2,000,000 and hold an enhanced CRB check.
Copyright and all intellectual property rights to images taken by us remain with us. We operate a sensible policy on Copyright and understand that images will be used by customers and Dance School proprietors for multiple purposes and across different platforms. Such personal uses, including home printing from jpegs supplied by us, are within the terms of our licence. Copyright claims only arise if people attempt to profit from our copyrighted images. Where images are required for PR or other purposes, prior consent is required from us.
Because of the nature of your business as a Dance School, we assume that you already have your own policy in place regarding parental permissions for photography whilst dancing for the school at shows and festivals and that we therefore have implied permission to photograph your dancers unless we are specifically notified in writing prior to the event. Photographs will be available to view/purchase on password protected galleries on the website after the event and occasionally a small selection of images may be used to promote the event on social media such as Facebook and as samples on the website, sample products and future marketing. In summary, it is the Dance School’s responsibility to advise us of any dancers who are not to be photographed. We will, of course, remove any photos requested by parents/guardians or dancers at any time.
We are strongly committed to preserving the privacy of our customers and our Data Protection and Security policy outlines our policy for the collection and use of information about customers and their transactions with us.
To view a photo gallery you need to provide your name and email address to register. This information is not shared with anyone and is only used by Ashley Holmes Photography to communicate directly with yourself and, in the main, is used to advise when a discount is about to expire for an event you have viewed and very occasionally when there is a special offer. You will not be bombarded with emails on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and you can opt to have your details removed at anytime.
By opening an account and creating a password, you are able to save images to your favourites folder and come back to view them or make purchases from the folder again and again, without having to find the images again from the gallery(s).
When you have provided us with personal details to view a gallery or placed an order online, we will handle this information in accordance with the United Kingdom’s Data Protection legislation.
We maintain strict security standards and procedures with a view to preventing unauthorised access to your data by anyone, including our staff. Payments taken online for orders are collected via Paypal, so sensitive billing information such as Debit/credit card details are stored in an encrypted format so no party has access to it.
In addition, the software that we use to process and track orders and to record all our business transactions for accounting purposes are provided by a market leading software company that uses the latest industry recognised standards of security to protect your personal details.
