I need to retain your data to enable me to keep in regular contact with you as we work together to create your beautiful, bespoke ceremony. If you have any further questions about how your information is stored and used, please feel free to contact me so I can explain.

If you have previously agreed to me using your personal information to keep in touch with you for marketing purposes, such as newsletters etc. you may change your mind at any time by writing to or emailing me at info@perfectwordsceremonies.co.uk

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore I cannot guarantee the security of data sent to me electronically and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.

I will not share your personal information to anyone unless you have given me permission to share it.

Use of Cookies

Every time a user visits this website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will advise if you have these cookies and if you don’t, new ones are generated. This allows my website to track how many individual unique users I have, and how often they visit the site. When collected this information is used to improve my website and further enhance the visitor experience. Please note that no personally identifiable information is recorded.

Where used, these cookies are downloaded to your computer automatically. This cookie file is stored on the hard drive of your computer. You can choose to accept or decline cookies but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.  However, disabling this function may diminish your experience on my website and some features may not work as intended.

Links to other Websites

You might find links to third party websites on my website which may be of interest to you. However, once you have used these links to leave this site, you should note that I do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. These websites should have their own privacy policies which you should check.

Affirmations and Personal Testimonials

I pride myself on the relationship I have been fortunate to have enjoyed with my couples and families, many of whom have kindly left some really lovely reviews which you will find posted throughout my website across social media and other websites e.g. Celebrant or Wedding Directories. If you are also kind enough to leave me a review on a public forum, I will be sharing your comments all over my social media and website, because it’s nice to be liked and appreciated, and it will also reassure other clients that they have found the right Celebrant.

Photographs

I will not use any photographs taken by either myself or your photographer without your permission (refer to contract) and will always credit your photographer for any of their images used on my website or social media sites. I respect your privacy and will not use your names or personal information on social media or my website without your permission.  My enthusiasm and love of my role as a Celebrant might mean that I post prior information on my social media about your ceremony, but this will in no way identify who you are and I will use terms such as “couple” or use your initials.  I hope in this way I can convey to potential couples my enthusiasm for my role and how wonderful a celebrant ceremony can be.  If you would prefer me to not use media and information about your ceremony in this way please let me know.
