Privacy and Information Security Policy

Chrissy Donadi Photography LLC (“CDP”) is committed to safeguarding online privacy with respect to the personally identifiable information that we may obtain from users of the http://www.christinadonadi.com website (“Website”). Our Privacy and Information Security Policy (“Privacy Policy”) answers frequently asked questions about your online privacy, including what personally identifiable information we may obtain from you and how it will be used and protected. CDP may from time to time change this Privacy Policy, so please check back periodically.

WHAT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION DO WE OBTAIN FROM YOU? WHEN DO WE OBTAIN SUCH INFORMATION?

If, upon visiting our Website, your use is limited to browsing our informational content, we will not require that you provide us with any personally identifiable information. However, we may request personal information from you at other times. For example:

  • Other features of our website or our service may require registration and establishment of a user account, which involves provision of your name, email address, and a password.
  • When you use certain features of our service, we collect a variety of other personal information from you. Although this information varies depending on how you use our service, it may include such information as your name, address, phone number, email address or credit card information.
  • If you choose to participate in a customer survey conducted by us or by one of our business partners, we may ask for your name, e-mail address and other information as may be required by the particular survey.
  • If you report a problem or submit a customer review, we will ask that you provide your name, e-mail address, address, phone number and/or account number. Should you contact us for any reason other than to report a problem and/or submit a review, we may also keep a record and/or copy of your correspondence with us.

HOW DO WE PROTECT THE SECURITY AND QUALITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

To protect the security and quality of your personal information, we have implemented procedures to maintain accurate, current and complete information as well as to protect your personal information against loss, misuse or alteration when it is under our control. Your personal information is also password protected so that access is limited to yourself and those with whom you share your password, CDP, as well as third party access facilitated by CDP with your prior permission.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?

Information you share with us will be used in a variety of ways that let us serve you better. We may also use this information to perform administrative, technical, hosting or other functions that help us manage our Website and deliver new functionality to you.

We use your information to: provide you with our services; facilitate and improve our services (including research and marketing purposes) and develop new services; and communicate with you (including administrative messages and promotional communications).

CDP may combine, in a non-identifiable format, the personal information you provide with information from other users to create aggregate data that may be disclosed to third parties for general public health or commercial purposes. Aggregate data does not contain any information that could be used to contact you or identify you.

HOW AND WHY WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL AND OTHER INFORMATION

While it is fully within your rights to not share personal information, you may not be able to utilize some features of the Website or related services if you choose not to supply personal information.

We will not share your personal information with any other third parties without your express permission, except as otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy, or as required by law.

CDP may use third-party service providers to help us manage and improve the Website and related services. These service providers may collect and/or use your personal or other information to assist us in achieving the purposes discussed above in the section entitled “How Do We Use Your Information?”

We may also share your personal information with other third parties when necessary to fulfill your requests for services; to complete a transaction that you initiate; to meet the terms of any agreement that you have with us or our partners; or to manage our business.

The Website or related services may enable you to share personal information with websites or online services operated by third parties. For example, the Website may contain links and widgets for third-party websites that incorporate comment and social media features. If you choose to use these features, you may disclose your personal information not just to those third-party websites and services, but also to their users and the public more generally. Because these third-party websites and services are not operated by CDP, we are not responsible for the content or practices of those websites or services. The collection, use, and disclosure of your personal and non-personal information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third party websites or services, and not this Privacy Policy.

The CDP Website or related services may also integrate certain third-party plug-ins (such as a Facebook “like” button). Even if you do not click on these plug-ins, they may collect information about you, such as your IP address and the pages that you view. They also may set and/or access a cookie. These plugins are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing them. Our practices with respect to cookies and other tracking mechanisms is discussed below.

CDP reserves the right (and you authorize CDP) to share or disclose your personal information when CDP determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of such information is necessary or appropriate.

We also may use or share your personal or non-personal information with third parties when we believe, in our sole discretion, that doing so is necessary:

(i) To comply with applicable law or a court order, subpoena, or other legal process;

(ii) To investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of our terms and conditions, or situations involving threats to our property or the property or physical safety of any person or third party;

(iii) To establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; or

(iv) To facilitate the financing, securitization, insuring, sale, assignment, bankruptcy, or other disposal of all or part of our business or assets.

Finally, your personal information may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization or other change of control, reorganization, bankruptcy, or asset sale. If we sell, merge or transfer any part of our business, part of the sale may include your personal information.

DO WE SELL OR RENT YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

No, as a general rule, we do not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone. If and whenever we intend to share your personally identifiable information with a third party (other than as provided herein), you will be notified at the time of data collection or transfer, and you will have the option of not permitting the transfer. However, we may from time to time rent or sell demographic information in the aggregate that does not contain your personally identifiable information.

HOW CAN YOU UPDATE, CORRECT OR DELETE YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

You may edit your personally identifiable information and your password at any time by sending an e-mail request to  info@christinadonadi.com.

WHAT ARE COOKIES? HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

Cookies enable us to customize and personalize your experience on our Website, including the products and promotions that are offered to you. Essentially, a cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. We use cookies for several purposes in connection with the operation of our Website:

  • We may use cookies to identify you and access your information stored on our computers in order to deliver you a better and more personalized experience. For example, we may use cookies to tell you about products and services specific to your interests.
  • Upon request, we will save your “user name” so that you do not have to re-enter it every time you visit our Web Site. In providing you with this service, we use cookies.
  • We may use cookies to estimate our customer base and customer usage patterns. Each browser accessing our Web Site is given a unique cookie that is then used to determine the extent of repeat visits and the customer activity during those visits. We may use the historical information to help target promotions based on customer interests and behavior, both specifically to individual customers and on an aggregate basis with respect to all customers.

DO YOU HAVE CHOICES ABOUT COOKIES?

Yes, you have several choices with respect to cookies. You can modify your browser preferences to accept all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. However, our Web Site uses cookie-based authentication. Accordingly, if you choose to reject all cookies, you may not be able to log onto our Web Site and/or use our services.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR ONLINE PRIVACY?

It is important to remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on-line, your information can be collected and used by others. If you transmit or post personal information on-line that is accessible to others, you will not be able to control how that information is used by others. When we receive the transmitted information, we will use the procedures summarized in this Privacy Policy to ensure the integrity and security of that information in our systems. Unfortunately, notwithstanding any of the steps taken by us, it is not possible to guarantee the security and integrity of data transmitted over the Internet. Consequently, while we take the above-described reasonable steps to protect your personal information, we cannot and do not warrant the security or integrity of any information you transmit to us when registering for our Website or otherwise. All such transmission of information is at your own risk. Moreover, though we are committed to having our Website comply with this Privacy Policy, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password and your personally identifiable information. If you are careless with your password, or you decide to share your password with third parties, you must be aware of the risk that such third parties will have access to all your personally identifiable information.

    • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
    • Comply with a legal obligation.
    • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise the rights listed above, please submit a request in writing to CDP via the contact information listed in the Contact Information section.

You may also make a request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a request for access twice within a 12-month period. Your request must:

    • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
    • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

For Requests to Access, our response will only cover the 12-month period preceding the request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. We will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
