Last Updated: Feb 14, 2023


Stephanie Jenkins Photography (hereinafter “We” or “Us”) is dedicated to protecting your privacy and maintaining the security of any personal information received from you. We adhere to the requirements of the data protection legislation in the US. This policy indicates what information we may collect about you, how we use it, and what measures we take against unauthorized access or processing.

Collection & Use of Personal Information

When you use our website services, we may collect and process the following personal data about you:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • IP address
  • Usage data
    The information collected is used for internal record keeping and to communicate with you regarding our services. We never sell or share your personal data with any third parties, except when required by law. 


By using this site, you consent to us collecting and using your personal information for these purposes only. We will never collect more than is necessary for achieving these objectives without your explicit consent.


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 anonymized 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: 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.


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 visit our login page, 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset 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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Retained Media Rights

Any images posted on Stephanie Jenkins Photography’s website are retained media rights belonging solely to Us and its contracted photographers unless otherwise noted in writing by Us or its associated clients upon request at no additional cost. Such requests can be made through a contact form available on StephanieJenkinsPhoto’s website or via direct email inquiry sent to

Security of Your Personal Data

We ensure appropriate security of all personally identifiable information by utilizing industry accepted standards for storing and protecting digital records such as SSL encryption technology whenever exchanging data with other third party vendors or during payment processing transactions that require credit card details over the web. While every effort has been made to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction; there still remains potential risks associated with digital communications which are impossible to eliminate completely due to advances in technology beyond our control . We advise that if you have any questions about how we store your confidential information please direct them via email inquiry sent to
