Who we share your data with

Your Data is not shared with any third party or other company. Olivier Borgognon is a photographer based in Switzerland, and the website uses your information to communicate about photography services and workshops to all his clients, as the experience has proven that many clients using a photographer are themselves fondly interested in the medium. The data collected will therefore serve to keep track of who you are (name & firstname & adress), how to contact you if you have asked me a question (phone or email), and for my photography mailing-list (email).

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

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.
