To get a general idea of where my visitors are located geographically and what pages that are being viewed, I’ve installed the program Matomo (previously Piwik) locally on my website. The localization is made through the visitors IP-address (the computers phone number) but the program is set to anonymize each visit and no personal data, including the IP-address, about you personally is being saved or transfered to anyone else.
In some cases you as the user provide me with your personal information, for example when you correspond with me through e-mail or on social media, when you sign up for my newsletter och when you order images. The personal data that I then might gather and save about you is the following:
* Telephone number
* Postal address
* Any other extra information that you provide me with
Please observe! For your own safety I urge you to not re-use any password you’ve used anywhere else, when you register a user account in my web shop.
HOW PERSONAL INFORMATION IS USED
Your personal information is gathered for specific, agreed and legitimate purposes and will not be used any further than that. I never share your personal with anyone else if you haven’t asked me to do so in advance. For example when you make a purchase and choose to pay with your card, in which case the payment is run through the payment company Stripe.
STORAGE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
No personal information is saved about you when you only visit my homepage. When you however order an image from me, send me an email or in any other way interact with me digitally information about you will be stored. I keep the personal information about you for as long as it’s necessary to, for example, deliver your order or to be able to send you my newsletter. If you’ve made a purchase you might want to order something again, so I won’t delete your user account automatically when your order is sent. In the following paragraph I’ve listed the services I use and where you can find more information about their policies regarding personal information. My homepage is set up through the German company Domain Factory and they have placed the physical server containing my homepage in Strasbourg in France. So that’s where the information you provide when registering a user account with me at the time of ordering an image is stored.

If you’ve ordered anything from me through my web shop, you’ll find all your personal information in your user account. You’re also welcome to contact me so I can initiate a data export through the web shop including all the personal information that’s stored about you. When it comes to emails, I suggest that you first of all have a look in the folder for sent emails in your own email program, to see what you’ve sent to me. I can at my end also export the emails you’ve sent me as a PDF and return them to you. Please state all the email addresses from where you’ve sent emails to me, so I can find the information that you want.
DELETE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You’re at all times welcome to ask me to delete your user account, including all the digital information that I’ve stored about you, as soon as I can. Regarding my newsletters, there is an “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email, through which you can remove yourself from the mailing list so that you won’t receive any further emails from me. Regardless of where your information is stored, you’re also welcome to contact me directly, so I can assist you in being forgotten in my little corner of the web. Please observe that if you’ve made a purchase from me, I need to store the information about you as long as the laws for accounting require me to do so. When a purchase is made, your personal information is also shared with my accountant in the form of printed (completely analogue) verifications.

SAFETY AND PROTECTION
I have to the best of my abilities made this website and its tools as secure as I possibly can and strive to always keep it updated with the latest software. The page is for example upgraded with a security certificate, to keep the communication between your computer and my website encrypted. This is indicated by the green padlock in your web browser. No matter where the information you have shared is saved, I always strive to update to the latest software to save my page and your personal information as best as I can. But despite all security measures, and with regards to the fact that it’s the internet we’re talking about, you can never talk about 100% security when transferring data. It’s important that we all remember this when we share information about ourselves.
