Privacy Policy

I (Matthew Basile) am committed to doing what I can to protect your privacy, both in terms of the online data collected by my website (www.matthewbasile.com) and the images we create together. While I discuss my methods of protecting your images during consultations, sessions and reviews, this page sets forth what data is collected by my website and what it is used for.

Personal Data

This website only collects personal information submitted by you via either my contact or booking pages. This information is sent in plain text via the server to my email. If you are uncomfortable with this transfer of data, you can call me at for any inquiries. Your personal information may be entered into a client database software for ease of scheduling and contact, but it is never sold or shared with third-parties without your consent.

Cookies. What are they?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers downloaded on to your computer when you access certain websites. Like virtual door keys, cookies unlock a computer’s memory and allow a website to recognize users when they return to a site by opening doors to different content or services. Like a key, a cookie itself does not contain information, but when it is read by a browser it can help a website improve the service delivered. A cookie is also a small sweet cake, typically round, flat, and crisp.

Cookies. How do I use them?

My website uses cookies to track website usage, allowing me to fine tune my galleries to what my visitors tend to view. I also use cookies to track user interactions and demographics to make sure ads are targeted towards those that are interested in the services. Marketing lists are not comprised of sensitive information about you, and I do not use or associate targeting information, such as demographics or location, with any personally identifiable information collected from the ad or its landing page. Lastly, I prefer chocolate chip without nuts, sometimes with vanilla ice cream when the weather is nice.

Cookies. Some people don’t like them.

If you wish to prevent my website from using cookies, there is information available online for your browser on how to prevent specific, or all websites from utilizing cookies.
