The DPA and GDPR 25th May 2018

This website complies with the Data Protection Act 1998 and already complies with the General Data Protection Regulation which comes into effect from 25th May 2018 as much as it possibly can. This is a huge new piece of legislation and there are still areas that need full clarification from the Information Commisioner's Office (ICO) and because of this, Stuart Morris Photography will update this policy accordingly as new areas and situations come to light and in addition to this ruling it will be reviewed again after the completion of the UK's exit from the European Union.

Use of Cookies

I love them, choc chip, double choc chip, probably even triple choc but only if there's not too many white chocolate chips in them. As far as the website goes, we dont bother with them, really don't see the need and that's why you won't find a pop up on this website asking you to accept cookies.
