This Privacy Policy explains how and why I use your personal data, to ensure you remain informed and in control of your information. 

It is for users of the website as well as for customers who go on to commission a portrait. It details all the ways in which the website or myself on behalf of Anna Bregman Portraits may collect and use your personal data.

Any questions you may have in relation to this policy or how I use your personal data may be sent to



Personal data you provide

This includes information you provide when browsing the website or contacting me by email or telephone. For example:

  1. Personal details (name, email, address, telephone)
  2. Photographs you provide for me to work from
  3. Information gathered when you view the website via your browser’s cookies (see COOKIE POLICY below)



I do not carry out marketing and won’t contact you at any point to offer further artistic services

If you contact me to enquire or discuss a possible portrait but don’t end up commissioning one, I will not retain your contact information

If you contact me and request to be put on my waiting list, I will retain your contact details until your portrait is commissioned and completed. 

Once your portrait is finished, I will securely store a high resolution scan of your finished portrait along with a note of your name, in case you contact me in future to request a printed copy. If you do not wish me to retain this information please let me know and I will delete it.

To comply with my legal requirements to keep tax records, I will retain a copy of all customer invoices (containing customer names and contact details) for a period of no more than 5 years.

Photographs sent to me are kept confidential and are never shared. Once I have finished working from your original photos to create the portrait, I delete them. 



I never sell or in any way share customer data in any form, to any third party. 



Electronic data is stored on secure computer systems. Access to them is limited to myself alone.

Payment security

If you choose to pay via the website I use third party payment processors PayPal to process payments. All online payments will be conducted in accordance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards and your billing information (which is only used by these payment processors for the purposes of performing fraud protection) is encrypted before being communicated to them. Subject to the exception below, your credit card details are communicated directly from your browser to these payment processors. This means that the payment form is either off-site or displayed in a frame on the payment page. 

For PayPal only tokens required to identify the transaction with Paypal, to issue refunds and identify transactions made using PayPal are stored. 



Your legal rights are as follows:

  1. The right to confirmation as to whether or not I hold your personal data and where relevant to obtain a copy of this data (this is known as subject access request)
  2. The right to have your data erased, unless it is necessary for me to continue to use the data for a lawful reason such as maintaining financial and tax information
  3. The right to have inaccurate data rectified
  4. The right to data portability: you have the right to request that your data is transferred to another organisation or to yourself in a way that is machine readable, such as a CSV file. 



You can complain to Anna Bregman Portraits by emailing me at mail@annabregmanportraits.

If you are not happy with my response or you believe that your data protection or privacy rights have been infringed you can complain to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office which regulates and enforces data protection law in the UK.
