Privacy Policy

Last Updated 11/14/2021

Who we are

Jos Moody Photography (“we” or “us”) is committed to safeguarding any personal information that may be collected through our website (“Site”) and the services that we offer through our third party vendors. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes our practices of processing data from our clients once they register an account on our site for the purpose of scheduling, as well as visitors to the client galleries or fine art gallery (all, collectively the “Service”). This privacy policy is an integral part of Terms of Service which govern your use as the Site or Service (collectively the “Agreement”).


We have included below information about which data is collected, how we process and use your data, but before, we would like to explain the basis on which we do so:


i) Where you sign up for any of our services, we process your personal data in order to perform our services;


ii) If we have a legitimate interest in processing data, such as for direct marketing or online identifiers when you access our Site; or


iii) We will also process your personal data where you have provided us with consent to do so.

1. What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Depending on your interaction with us (meaning, if you are just browsing our Site, or if you have registered to our Services and opened an account, etc.), we may collect two types of information you, as follows:

(i) Non-Personal Data: The first type of information is non-identifiable information which may be made available or gathered through your use of the Services. To clarify, we are not aware of your identity due to such information (“Non-Personal Information”). The Non-Personal Information which is being collected may include your aggregated usage information and technical information transmitted or automatically (but not limited to): the time and date you access our Site or a Gallery (e.g., pictures used, pages viewed, etc.) and approximate geo-location.

(ii) Personal Data: The second type of information is individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable effort identify an individual (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes either: (a) contact information such as your name, email address, etc., which you have submitted voluntarily; or (b) your Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses (the addresses of computers on the Internet). Note that, while IP is considered personally identifiable information in many jurisdictions (such as the EEA), there are some jurisdictions in which such data is not considered as Personal Information. Therefore, we treat such information as Personal Information, in accordance with applicable laws. The IP is collected by our third party analytic partners that offer ways to opt-out, all as detailed below. You are not required by law to provide us with any information. You can always avoid from providing us certain Personal Information; however, you acknowledge that it may prevent you from engaging in certain Services. In the event we combine Personal Information with Non-Personal Information, the combined information will be treated as Personal Information for as long as it remains combined.

2. How we Collect Information

Depending on the nature of your interaction with the Services, we may collect information as follows:


(i) Automatically – we may use Cookies (as elaborated in the Section below) to gather some information automatically.


(ii) Provided by you voluntarily – we will collect information if and when you choose to provide us with the information, such as through a registration process, newsletter registration, contact us communications, etc.

3. Disclosure of Information

We make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose Personal Information only if required to do so by law or when necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Site. We may also share your information with:


(i) A third party performing services on our behalf such as payment processing and printing who has agreed to keep such information
confidential (such as the processing of your credit card payment if applicable or the conduct of an online survey, for example.)

4. Securing the Information

Our servers hold no personal information about you other than your name, email address, and contact information and we hold no financial information on our web server at any time. We take reasonable technical measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of the information collected against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data.

5. Information You Share

Through our third-party services (Pic-Time & others) we allow you to share information (including low-res photos which are uploaded to your personal gallery) with others. Remember that when you share information with another person, that person can then share that information with others. For example, when you give permission to another person to view your photos, that person is then able to print your photos and, also, to share them with others potentially violating copyright law and opening them up to legal and civil liability. The print-release (located in your personal client gallery) is a legally binding license which governs the permissible use of the photographs within the gallery.
