Technologies: As you use my site, I may automatically collect Technical Data about your equipment, browsing actions and usage patterns. I collect this data by using cookies, server logs and similar technologies. I will only use your personal data when legally permitted. The most common uses of your personal data are: when I actually need to come to your home for the photoshoot, when I need to have a contract with you, where it is necessary for our legitimate interest, and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests; where I need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

I require this information to meet and understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons: internal record keeping; improving my services and products; sending promotional emails about products that I think are interesting for you, like cherry and apple minisessions; sending informative emails on topics that you have subscribed for; to display advertisements to you that are tailored to your personal characteristics, interests, and activities; providing on-location photoshoots (kinda crucial to know where you live for an in-home photosession).

If you opt to receive any free resources, participate in any free training programs, register for a webinar, register for a live event, register for a seminar, or purchase any products sold by Niki Strbian Valokuvaus Oy on this website, I will only enroll ​you to receive my free email newsletter if you affirmatively consent to it.

Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.

Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Niki Strbian Valokuvaus Oy reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website.

I require only the information that is reasonably required to enter into a contract with you. I will not require you to provide consent for any unnecessary processing as a condition of entering into a contract with me. In human language, that means that you have the right to request a copy of the information I hold about you. If you would like a copy of the personal information I hold, please contact me.
