What personal data we collect & why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites
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.

Who we share your data with
Personal data is being shared with a third party when you book a seat on a photography tour or when you purchase a print or digital download. The personal data being shared is always relevant to your booking or purchase order.
In case of a purchase order (print or download) we share your mailing address, name and telephone number with Printful. This data is being used solely for the purpose of sending the ordered prints to you.
Financial information (card details upon purchases) is not being processed on this website but directly by Valitor – the payment gateway.
Any other data on this website is not being shared with any third party.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we 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.
In case you place an order through the print or download marketplace, your data will be retained for the following durations:
- Inactive marketplace accounts are retained for 24 months.
- Pending orders are retained for 12 months.
- Failed orders are retained for 12 months.
- Cancelled orders are retained for 12 months.
- Completed orders are retained for 24 months.
