You may receive another email before we are able to remove you.

When you contact us with a question, feedback or other comments, you may be asked for information that identifies you, such as your name, address and telephone number. We collect this information to verify your identity and to help us promptly answer your question or respond to your comment or feedback. We may retain this information to assist you in the future. We also may use your feedback, suggestions and comments to monitor and/or improve our products or website.

 

Website Information Collected

You can visit this site www.parallaxphotographic.coop without telling us who you are or providing us with any personal information. However, we collect the IP (Internet Protocol) addresses of all our website visitors and other related information such as page requests, browser type, operating system and average time spent on our website.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

 

Cookies

We use cookies and similar technologies to collect information about the pages you access or visit. Cookies are bits of information that are automatically stored on your computer so we can recognise you when you return. We use cookies to better understand your use of the Parallax Photographic Coop website so that we may continue to refine and improve the website. If you do not wish to have cookies on your system, you can set your browser preferences to disable them. However, if you decide not to accept cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the features on the Parallax Photographic Coop website. The information collected through cookies may be combined with other identifiable personal information (such as demographic information) from our records and other sources. We may use this combined information for future marketing initiatives and help us improve our website presentation.

We collect personal information when you fill in a Parallax Photographic Coop form. This may include, for example, your name, date of birth, email address, postal address, telephone number, gender, and your product preferences. This information is for internal use only, such as confirming eligibility for discounts. We will never share your information outside of Parallax Photographic Coop.

 

Information We Share

We may use service providers to process data, host our website, and send emails, in order to help us better understand your use of our website and refine and improve the website. These companies may store and process this information. All of our service providers are required to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information and to use it only in compliance with applicable privacy laws. These companies are not authorised to use your information in any manner, other than in helping us to provide you with products and services or as otherwise required by applicable law.

Retention Of Personal Information

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.

If you leave a comment, 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.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

 

How We Protect Your Data

Your privacy is very important to us. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against the loss, theft, unauthorised access, use, modification and disclosure of personal information in our custody and control. We have implemented measures in an effort to safeguard the personal information in our custody and control, including only providing access to personal information to employees and authorised service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. To provide you with an increased level of security, online access to certain personal information may be protected with a password you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication.

We may periodically update this Privacy Policy for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed. Any changes made will be posted here.
