Privacy Policy

Okay so as some of you guys might know we need a clear privacy policy on our website where you find it, technically we aren’t having to change the way we do things, but here is our GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliant privacy policy. Yes, we know it’s boring. However the new regulation means that businesses have to provide jargon-free information on how and why they collect personal data to anyone that visits their website

Personal data we collect

We collect and process the following information you provide by completing the initial enquiry form on my website:

Name – So we don’t have to call you Sir/Madam

Email Address – So we know where to send our brochure and booking pack

Mobile Number – Just in case the email gets lost, we can text to let you know we have responded

If you decide to go ahead with the booking, we may collect and process the following additional information you provide by completing my booking form and pre-wedding questionnaire.

Home Address – So we know where to send your awesome images

The address you’ll be getting ready at – So we know where to find you on the day

Names of guests included in key group shots – So we know who we are looking for

How we collect and keep this information

When you initially enquire using the form on the contact page, the information arrives in our email inbox and our online diary system 17Hats which is GDPR compliant, both of which are secured with passwords (these aren’t easy to guess either!). Our website is very securely pass worded with a HTTPS link also. If you decide not to proceed with the booking we will be very sad but will agree to delete your data after a reasonable amount of time has passed. Your information will NEVER be sold or given to anyone other than us.

If you go ahead with booking us as your wedding photographers (That’s awesome!!), we will do a happy dance and you’ll be asked to fill in the booking form. This booking form is stored within our diary system 17Hats (sometimes also within the emails) which is password protected. Any pre-wedding questionnaires join the booking forms.

Right of confirmation, access, rectification and erasure

If you do have any questions at all about what data we have on you, we are more than happy to share. Don’t be surprised though when there’s no juicy gossip, only what you’ve told us! If you do decide you want us to erase all your data, we do suggest if that is the case to do this after the wedding once you’ve had all your images.

Use of your data

To summarise, we will definitely use your email address several times in the lead up to your wedding day. We might even use it several times after the wedding to keep you updated. We most certainly won’t pass your email address on to anyone else! You may find that if you’ve mentioned you might like an album we will contact you regarding this.

Face based data

Unfortunately for wedding photographers, the EU hasn’t really been that specific on whether your face is classed as data. They just state that it must be for reasonable and legitimate use. We promise to not sell your images on to anyone. If anyone does approach us in relation to your images, we will always email you about it.

In order to run our business, we do post photos of my clients and work on social media and our website. We do ask for clients if they agree to this in the booking pack and contract, so if you do have objections, please do say! Your wedding photos and beautiful faces are stored on three external hard drives which are kept in two different locations (behind multi-locked doors). They are also stored on an online gallery called Pixieset for a minimum of 6 months, which is GDPR compliant.

Links to other websites

Our website does occasionally provide links to other websites, such as wedding blogs and other suppliers. We have no control over such websites and are not responsible for the content of these websites. This privacy policy does not extend to your use of such websites. You are advised to read the privacy policy or statement of other websites prior to using them.
