This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you contact me, book a photo session or order any service that I provide, including the purchase of prints, art displays etc., or otherwise use my services through this website  or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including JotForm or any third party services you access through my website. You can find JotForm Privacy Policy HERE.

You can read Cookie Policy HERE.

Information I Collect:

To fulfill necessary services, you must provide me with certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the service/product that you’re buying/ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of collage or announcement card, for example), if you contact me directly via phone or email.
Emails that are collected from subscription lists, questionnaires or other methods are stored at the  Jotform (and comply with their Privacy Policy ).
You can unsubscribe from mailing lists or demand to delete your information at any time.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

· as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information in the client agreement, to provide customer support, to send you orders upon your wish, to send you special offers and marketing materials that might be interested for you;

· when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;

· if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;

· as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my studio, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements.

Your Rights:

If you reside in certain territories, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe some of these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons – client agreement, model release and so on) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Complain. If you wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

For purposes of data protection law, I, Catherine Budcov, as a representative of DIAMOND STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY, am the data controller of your personal information that I collect (though I am not responsible for the 3rd parties like – website platform, contract, questionnaires and other documents and forms, online gallery etc). If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at
