When you make a purchase or request information from kporterphotography.com, we collect your name, phone, email, and details about your request so we can respond with pertinent resources and/or fulfill your order.
Your gallery access includes the option to create a Client Account with an email and password that is unique to you. This is not required, but will enable you to update your information and track your orders.
For your privacy and security, we do not store credit card numbers in your account or within our virtual billing system.
Karrie Porter Photography uses session cookies to track visitor navigation throughout the website. You may set your internet browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge, etc) to notify you when you receive a cookie, and you may also erase cookies from your browser after shopping. If you delete our cookies, you may lose information you had saved or progress you had made in online forms, however deleting a cookie will not hinder your enjoyment of the content or the ability to purchase from us.
We use custom code on our site to allow us to run reports on the number of visitors, pageviews, and the time users spend on our site. This code does not capture any personally identifying information, but will aggregate the actions taken during your visit with that of other users, giving us a “birds eye view” of how visitors find the information they’re looking for.
We also use code that allows us to view a screen flow of how a user navigates through our site. It collects no personally-identifying information, and is used as a design tool to ensure navigation is clear and users can find the information they are looking for.
We also have a Facebook Pixel installed on our site. This acts as another behavioral aggregate tool, and allows us to create custom audiences in Facebook whose interests and affinities match that of our actual site visitors (the “birds of a feather” concept). We also use it to create posts that will serve relevant information to that audience, but again this happens on a macro level and no personally-identifiable information is shared.
Third Party Access
Our studio does not sell or exchange your name or other personally-identifiable information to third-party companies for their marketing purposes. We do provide personal contact details for the purposes of fulfilling an order. For example, we use an online payment processing security service to process credit card transactions online, but in order to do so, we must share your name, email, address, and order details with them. If we outsource your order to a professional photo lab, this is another scenario in which your information would be shared. The companies we work with similarly do not use client data for any reason other than to perform their designated responsibilities.
