Privacy Policy


Your privacy and security of your personal data is extremely important to me. This policy sets out my privacy practices and explains how I hold and use the information I collect when you visit and use my website, online galleries, services, mobile applications, products, and content (“Services”).


This privacy policy explains the types of personal data I, Stivala Photography, may collect about you whilst you interact with my website. I collect and process data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (CAP. 586) as legislated in the Maltese Law (Malta, EU). I do not disclose data to any third parties unless it is necessary for the fulfilment of a service, or you have specifically given consent for a particular service.

Stivala Photography website complies with the Data Protection Act 1998 (CAP. 586) in relation to all processing of personal data supplied to me by users and other personal data in my possession for any reason. It is the policy of Stivala Photography to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of any personal information, such as your name, address, email address, or telephone number that you provide to me. Because your privacy is important to me, I maintain this website privacy policy to protect your personal information. By using this site, you consent to the terms of this website privacy policy. I do not collect, use or disclose your personal information for any purpose other than those identified below, except with your consent or as required by law.

Each time you visit my website the web server collects and logs certain information. I keep these access logs for a reasonable period of time. These logs include, but are not restricted to: your computer’s TCP/IP address, your username (if applicable), date, time and files accessed. These logs also contain information about referrer information if you clicked on an external link in order to access a webpage. I use these logs solely for performance, site administration and security reviews and analytics. I do not sell or share this information with any third party.


I collect only personal information about you, such as your name, address, email address, or telephone number that you voluntarily provide to me. For example, I may receive personal information about you when you fill in my enquiry form or send me an email through my website. I will not forward the personal information you provide to me to any third parties.

I do not sell any personal information I receive through my website to any third party, nor will I add such information to any bulk email list I may prepare.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


A “cookie” is a block of text placed in a file on your hard drive by a website you’ve visited. Portions of the website may use cookies for security and authentication purposes.

I use cookies on this website for a number of reasons, including but not limited to tracking the number of people who read each article (via Google Analytics), and serving advertisements. Our use of Google Analytics includes the service’s Advertising Features in order to customise the advertising that you see on the site.

If you do not wish to have cookies stored in your browser, you may instruct your web browser to reject them. Here are instructions for doing so in Google Chrome, for example, and Firefox, but the same result is possible in just about any browser.

I do not share or sell information I may learn about you through my use of cookies to any third party or for any purpose.

If you leave a comment on my site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.


When using my contact form I collect the following information which is directly provided by the user, their name, email address , telephone number, and details about their wedding day including the date and location. The information provided is only used to reply or for direct contact with the user. This information is never passed onto to any third-party services or sold.



Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on my website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


You can request at any time that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

My website may contain links to other websites provided by third parties not under my control. When following a link and providing information to a third-party website, please be aware that I am not responsible for the data provided to that third party. This privacy policy only applies to the websites listed at the beginning of this document, so when you visit other websites, even when you click on a link posted on, you should read their own privacy policies.






Although most changes are likely to be minor, I may change my Privacy Policy from time to time, at my sole discretion.
