We share your personal information within New Shoots Photography Training and as described in this policy. We do not share personal information with marketers outside of New Shoots Photography Training unless you consent to such sharing or as described within this policy.

Third-party service providers

We engage third-party service providers to perform a variety of business operations on our behalf. In so doing, we may share your personal information with them. We provide our service providers with only the personal information they need in order to perform the services we request, and we contractually require that they protect this information appropriately and not use it for any other purpose.

We may share your information with selected third parties including:

  • business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with you;

In such instances, our business partner will not be permitted to use New Shoots Photography Training data or the combined data for its own, independent marketing purposes. Our service provider will only be allowed to use the combined set of information to send you joint communications that we hope will be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive these joint communications, you can always opt out by following the instructions provided in any such communication or through this policy as detailed herein.
