Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://lloydjonesphotography.co.uk.

The personal data I collect

Your first point of contact with me is normally via the contact form on my website, via email, or a phone call. I collect your names, wedding date and venue, I also collect contact numbers fro you both. All of this is information is needed for me to perform my job.

If I collected your email address from a wedding fayre or were given your information by the wedding fayre organisers then I will probably send a couple of emails due to verbal permission being given at the time. If this turns into a booking then your data will be stored as described below. If it doesn’t then the information is deleted. You will not be contacted by me further as I do not send out any form of news letter or do I have a subscribers list.

Collection and storage of your personal data

The contact form on my website is provided by a company called Wufoo which is a GDPR compliant company. This provider holds your information and is only accessible via my secure username and password which only I have access to. The majority of our communicate will be via email and occasionally by mobile phone too. I use Google mail and currently with GiffGaff, both companies are also GDPR compliant.

If you make an initial enquiry with me and don’t go ahead with the booking, I will send one further email asking if I can be of any further assistance, If a reply is not received within 7 days of that email your information will be deleted.

My website has a blog which is open to the public to comment on, if you make a comment, you can choose what personal data is shown. You can also choose to delete the comment.

All payments to me are via bank transfer will show in my business bank account in the standard way. On the rare occasion I receive a cheque, this will be deposited as standard also.

Right of confirmation, access, rectification and erasure

You have the right to confirmation, access, rectification and erasure of all the above data that I hold on you. For example, if you wish to see the initial contact form you submitted and check it for accuracy, or perhaps following your wedding you’d like to have your details completely removed, then you have that right.

Use of your data

I will use the above mentioned data to communicate with you about your wedding or photo shoot, and to enable me to perform my job.

Your data is never shared with anyone else. On the occasion that you have booked a second photographer via myself to attend the wedding. I will discuss with them verbally the details in relation to the timings of your wedding, but they will not be provided with any of your personal data except your names.

On occasion I am contacted by other wedding suppliers requesting images of weddings that have taken place that they were involved in. If on these occasions your wedding is chosen to represent my work, your permission will be sought to use your photographs and a story of your day. Most often they will contact you directly and in this case you can choose whether to allow your photos to be used. Those companies will have their own privacy policy which you can request from them.

Photographs

Given the nature of my job you can expect me to ‘collect and store’ photographs on your wedding day or photo shoot. These photographs are stored on memory cards during the day and backed up to a password-encrypted external hard drive and an online cloud based drive called Backblaze.

I sometimes get asked for wedding photographs to be submitted and used for advertising purposes. This is extremely rare and if it happens you will be asked permission.

In order to run my business I share online, predominantly on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google and on my websites own blog. I sometimes use photographs on my business cards, banners and brochures when attending wedding fayres. I often share weddings I shot many years ago, so if you have had a wedding shot by me in the past and no longer want me to share them for any reason, you can simply get in touch to withdraw your permission. 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, this email will be stored and adhered to. It is perfectly reasonable to want to keep your wedding photographs private.
