General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Your Right to Privacy
Your Personal Data:
I collect information regarding you and your partner/family/whomever you are being photographed with, if applicable, as required to carry out my role as your photographer. This may include your name, address, contact information, wedding details and wedding party names and anything else you deem appropriate to tell me. This information is provided by you and not gathered from anywhere else and is necessary to perform my job.
Right of confirmation, access, rectification and erasure:
If you would like to know what information I hold about you, please contact me to request this. It will be whatever you have provided to me previously and I will provide confirmation of what this is, in writing. Furthermore, if you wish for the information to be deleted, please request this and I will do so promptly
Use of your data:
I will only use your data for purposes necessary to do my job. I will not pass it on to others without your permission, nor will I use it to sell you future services. If you have agreed in your contract, I may share images of you on my website, facebook page and instagram, for the purpose of promoting my business. It remains unclear how GDPR is applied to images, but if you are uncomfortable with any images of yourself being shared on my website and social media, even if you have previously agreed, you can withdraw this permission at any point. If I photograph your wedding, it is possible that your wedding guests may be in some images that I share; again, they also have the right to have these images removed if they wish. If, after your wedding, suppliers ask for images, I will share them if you have agreed to this in your contract; if you haven't, I will contact you to see if you want me to share them or not. Again, images are backed up using Backblaze cloud back-up facility.
If you have any questions about GDPR and your privacy, please contact me and I will endeavour to answer them!
