Sue Cunningham Photographic is conscious of the need to protect our customers' privacy, and we take all reasonable steps to safeguard the information you provide incidental to your use of our website.

You should be aware that we utilise the services of two partners to fulfil the functions of the website. The following information explains what services these partners provide.

  • PhotoShelter hosts our images, and provides registration, search, lightbox, pricing and delivery services. PhotoShelter is a web hosting service based in the United States which also provides back office facilities. When you register through the Sue Cunningham Photographic website, you are actually supplying your registration information to PhotoShelter. PhotoShelter has its own Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy which relate to your use of the services which they provide. When you register through our site, your logon and password are valid for access to all of PhotoShelter's contributors, which includes many professional photographers and agencies.
  • PayPal is a worldwide online payment processing service provider. It has localised sites in fourteen countries, and various levels of service available in other countries. It is governed and regulated by financial authorities in many countries, and has an extremely high standard of security. PayPal provides payment processing services for PhotoShelter and its contributors, including Sue Cunningham Photographic. PayPal has its own Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. These vary from country to country, but you can access the version which applies to you when you make use of PayPal services.

 It is not necessary to create a PayPal account in order to make a payment; you can use a credit or debit card on a one-off basis, and your payment will be processed in a secure environment, just as it is on any other website using secure socket layer (SSL) processing. However, it may be convenient to sign up for a PayPal account to facilitate future transactions.

Sue Cunningham Photographic will collect information provided by you through your PhotoShelter registration in connection with your use of the site. We will never sell or pass on the information you provide to any third party except for our partners as detailed above, unless legitimately required to do so under laws applicable to your use of our website and/or those of our partners. Because we make use of PayPal for processing all payments, we do not collect or record your credit or debit card information ourselves.

We will use the information you provide to communicate with you about all matters in connection with processing your orders and purchases. We may also contact you from time to time about our services, for example to notify you about new additions to our collections or improvements to our website. If you cancel your registration with PhotoShelter, we may continue to communicate with you unless you email us to notify us that you wish to be removed from our database.

We use your information in connection with your purchases of images from our site. We may also use information collected as you search our site, but this will only be used in an unattributable form to help us to improve the services we provide to our customers.

Cookies: PhotoShelter will send cookies to your computer to improve your experience in using our site. You can refuse or delete these cookies, but doing so will interfere with the proper functioning of the search and lightbox facilities.
