I'm committed to protecting your privacy -
Enquiries are received via email, phone and sometimes in person. I collect your names, event date, venue and contact numbers - all details needed for me to accurately answer your enquiry regarding photography.
Collection and storage of your personal data -
If you leave a comment on my site you can opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. This means you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. This is completely optional. These cookies will last for one year.
I will not collect any information from you that isn't relevant to the purpose of our photography relationship . All the personal data I hold is processed in the UK however for the purposes of IT hosting and maintenance, I must stress that the servers may not be. If you decide to book with me, your information is stored on my computer/ hard-drives/ cloud based servers- which are all password protected and only accessed by me.
The data I collect from you is to be used for the purpose of carrying out and planning our time spent together in a photography capacity- nothing more.
I will store your data securely until you request me to delete it. I also may communicate with you by email and mobile phone too. I use WIX, GDrive, Gmail, Pixieset and Vodafone mobile –who are all GDPR compliant, in order to be operable in the UK.
Payments are mostly made to me via bank transfer. I don’t see your payment details, only the amount, names and the reference you choose to show.
Use of your data -
I will use the above mentioned data to communicate with you about your wedding/ other shoot. If you have chosen to order an album/print etc through me, your names and address could be shared with NPhoto, so that the album/print product can be delivered. If you rather, I can have the order delivered to my address and then we can arrange for me to drop it to you.
If you have booked a second photographer, they will receive a digital copy of your relevant details, none of which should be more that the basic essentials needed for them to successfully capture your wedding.
Permission will be requested from you before I'd ever share your wedding/ event with such things as a magazine/ digital outlet etc. I do blog, so unless you have requested me not to, I could blog about the wedding/event but again, I only include very basic details in my blogs and no details which would harm your privacy.
I do not sell my data. I do not share my data with any third parties. I do not operate a mailing list.
Images of you are stored on duplicate memory cards during the day and backed up onto a computer hard drive & external hard-drive when I return home from your wedding or photo shoot.
I store your photographs for at least a year. Your online gallery is held on an online storage space, accessed and maintained by me. This is hosted by Pixieset (again- GDPR compliant) and would only contain your names, event date & venue. The images would remain on this gallery for a period of at least 3 months, if not longer. I would contact you before removing them, to ensure you have collected all your images. You are provided with a password in order to access and download the images. I would only share this with you, so it would be up to you who you share that password with.
If you did decide to make your gallery available to your guests, they will be able to purchase prints or downloads your images. Please let me know if you would prefer this not to be available. Your gallery will still be accessible for your guests to view your images as long as you have made the password available to them.
As per the norm these days, In order to successfully market my business I do share images online using such social media tools as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn and, of course, my own website(s). I also use photographs on my sample albums, sample wall art, business cards, banners and brochures when attending wedding fayres.
When signing my usual contract you will be agreeing to opt-in to all of this. However, if you want to withdraw your consent to this you can simply do so via email.
