Commitment to your Privacy
So what information do I collect?
From booking through to delivery of my service I collect a variety of data which will ask for a few personal details about yourselves. These might include:
Your email address
Your mobile number
Your home address
Details about your wedding, such as the venue address and contacts
First names of key friends and family members for group photographs.
As per our photography agreement I also take and manage all the photographs. If I am using a second shooter then only the details that are required for them to shoot the day will be shared.
And what do i do with this information?
I use the above date to respond to your initial enquiries, to be able to contact you prior to the your shoot or wedding, to collect information which will help me with the shoot and delivery of images. All data provided to me is with your consent when you enquire on my contact form or via email.
How do i keep your data secure?
When you enquire via the contact form on my website, this will go directly to my emails and a copy will be saved on the website itself. I have two computers connected with the business to access your personal data, both are password-protected with encrypted hard drives where I store all photographers and data.
In addition your personal details and photographs will be stored on a backup cloud drive called Backblaze. This software is password protected and allows me to have sufficient backup of all hard drives.
Your final images will be stored on Smugmug which is my online gallery storage software. This allows you to view, download and share your images. Smug mug may require your email address when downloading images.
As with any business, I use social media to share my work and, hopefully, generate new enquiries. So I do share a few of your images on places like Facebook and Instagram. Of course, if you really don't want me to do this, please just let me know and I will of course not share any.
When shooting a wedding in particular, there is a clause in my photography agreement which grants permission for me to take photographs of you and your guests and to share them online if needed. There is a likelihood of when capturing images that they might well end up getting their photograph taken. If a guests expresses there wish for images not to be shared then please let me know and I'll remove it / not share these images . These are part of your rights as an individual under GDPR guidelines.
Requesting your data removal
If you’d like to see a record of all the data I have on you, please contact me and I will be happy to help. You also have the right to ask me to delete all your personal data, Afterwards, you can always ask me to delete your information, but I’d recommend that you allow me to keep and archive your photographs in the event you lose your copy of them and you’d like a replacement copy.
