Who We Are & Our Policy

We are Studio73 and our website address is: www.designbystudio73.co.uk

Here at Studio73 we take your privacy very seriously and will only use your personal data in relation to your project.

Your Privacy

Access to the data we hold is restricted and only Studio73 has access to any personal details such as names, email address, telephone numbers, postal address and any personal details such as dates of special occasions for personalised prints. At any time you have the right to request a copy of the information we hold about you. You also have a right to amend any data that we hold. If you wish us to erase any data we hold about you Studio73 will action this immediately.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

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.

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms
We use contact forms so that you can send us enquiries which have a consent checkbox. We only use your information to reply to your enquiry.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with
We don’t share your data with anyone!

How long we retain your data
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.

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.

The personal data that we hold about you for projects and services we offer are held until we no longer require them.

Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Website hosting and files
As part of our ongoing hosting service we currently have access to all our clients websites and data stored within them. This can include customers personal information. Studio73 only accesses this information when necessary or requested by the client. Backups are taken regularly and stored with available access to Studio73 only. Our hosting company also has access to this data and have their own privacy policies in place.

We also have access to Social Media accounts of clients who request this service – again this information is restricted to access by Studio73 only.
