In terms of the personal information you submit when placing your order with Photographer Finder, this is held with the utmost commitment to your privacy. The information is stored on a secure webserver and in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act 1998, we have added security measures in place to ensure that your personal information has adequate protection. This not only applies to your contact details but your credit/debit card details as well.

When payments are made to Photographer Finder, we regard security and convenience as top priorities, this is why we use companies that are experts in these fields for all payments, Barclaycard and BT Click & Buy (from British Telecom).

If you use a web based payment page to pay for your listing, the credit/debit card details you submit are encapsulated using Barclaycard's EDPQ encrypted and digitally–signed protocol.

However SSL has been designed to work with Netscape and Explorer browsers and you will need to have at least Netscape Navigator 3 or Internet Explorer 3 to take advantage of this added security.

We believe that your privacy is important and have security in place to protect it. However if this security is breeched we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
