Using a contact form

When you send an email via a contact form, only your email address is required to answer your message.

Your message(s) sent via a contact form will be stored on this website’s server for a maximum of 72h. This measure ensures that no message(s) get lost in a spam folder.

Your message will be transmitted via TLS.

Your email address will only be used to answer your message. After the correspondence is concluded, your email(s) and your data will be deleted within a week.

Concluded means that all the issues you presented in your message(s) have been addressed.

Email addresses will not be stored for future use or shared with third parties, unless there are legal reasons to do so.

Downloading a free pdf

All free downloads, such as the Fine Art Prints catalogue or 42 towns and counting, can be downloaded without transmitting any data.

The statistics programmes WP Statistics and Statify only register that someone visited a download page but not whether a file has been downloaded. IP addresses are anonymised. Only the date, town, country, browser, referrer and number of hits are identified.

Why use a statistics programme? Or two.
