How do we collect personal data from you?
We receive information about you when you use our website, complete forms on our website, if you contact us by phone, email, through the client portal or otherwise in respect of any of our products and services or during the purchasing of any such product.
If you provide us with personal data about a 3rd party (for example when registering a domain on their behalf), you are agreeing that you have obtained the express consent from the 3rd party for the disclosure and use of their personal data.
Your personal data may be automatically collected when you use our services or site, including but not limited to, your IP address, device-specific information, server logs, device event information and general location information.

We use information about you in the following ways:
To process orders that you have provided to us;
To provide you with products and services;
To comply with any contractual agreements we have with you;
To help us identify you and any account you hold with us;
To enable us to review, develop and improve the website and services;

We will keep your personal data for the duration of the period you are a customer. We shall retain all data only for as long as necessary in accordance with applicable laws.
In the event your account with us is closed, we may be legally required to keep your data for up to 7 years after you have cancelled your services with us. We may not be able to delete your data before this time due to our legal and/or accountancy obligations. We assure you that any personal data we are required to hold by law, shall be restricted to be used for these purposes only, any other data will be permanently deleted.
Who has access to your personal data?
This list describes all the ways that we may use your data and how we share the information with third parties. For transparency, we have grouped them into the services that we offer:
We process your data for administration, billing, support and the provision of services.
We work with a number of 3rd parties (including service providers and fraud prevention authorities) and we may receive information about you from them. These 3rd parties may collect information about you including, but not limited to, your IP address, device-specific information, server logs, device event information, location information, and unique application numbers. We use their services or features within our website, and in some instances, they may themselves be acting as data controller. They will however have their own privacy policies, which we advise you to read.
We may pass your personal data to 3rd parties for the provision of services on our behalf (for example processing your payment). We only share information about you that is necessary to provide that service and we have a contract in place with them, which ensures your personal data is secure and will not be used for any marketing purposes.
We may share your personal data if we are under a duty to disclose data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Silverstar Photographic, our customers, or others. This includes but is not limited to exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection, credit risk reduction and dispute. However, we will take steps so that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
In preventing the use or processing of your personal data, it may delay or prevent us from fulfilling our contractual obligations to you. It may also mean that we shall be unable to provide our services or process the cancellation of your service.
You have the right to object to use of your personal data, or ask us to delete, remove or stop using it if there is no requirement for us to hold it. This is also known as your right to be forgotten. There are legal and accountancy reasons why we will need to keep your data, but please contact us if you believe we are holding or using your personal data in an incorrect manner.
We will not contact you for marketing purposes unless you have given us your prior consent.
