– In email, text, and other electronic messages between you and this Website.
– Through mobile and desktop applications you download from this Website, if available, which provide dedicated non-browser-based interaction between you and this Website.

Heather K Cook Photography uses images for blog posts, however we never use surnames within the blog post or within the file information embedded in the images. Further to this, whilst Heather K Cook Photography actively encourages wedding testimonials and comments on the website, we advise you to only use your first name followed by (The Bride) or (The Groom), so that there is no connection between a surname, blog post or image. The email address you supply when leaving a comment isn’t visible or accessible to anyone other than us and only to us when we are logged into the blog’s admin section. We will also ensure that comments from wedding guests do not include the bride and/or groom’s surname.

Should an existing client or potential client wish to remain completely anonymous and avoid any use of their images on Heather K Cook Photography’s blog or website, Heather K Cook is happy to negotiate a fee for this purpose. Contact Heather via email hello@heatherkcook.com.
