Use of Images and Your Privacy
Following the implementation of new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) , every client has the right to know where their photographs get used and how they get used. They also have a right to know where they are stored, for how long and what happens to them after they are transferred to you.
Photographs are captured on two cameras using SD Memory Cards and are backed up to an external hard drive and on my One Drive cloud storage at the end of the wedding day/ Photoshoot/ Event for security. By doing this it ensures that they are super secure in the unlikely event that anything should happen to my laptop, cameras or memory cards.
To enable my business to grow I do need to have an online presence which is achieved with the use of social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram etc.
I currently use the following:
Instagram – ruth_clements_photography/
Facebook Business Page- Ruth Clements Photography
Photographers Website – www.ruthclementsphotography.com
Photographers own marketing (leaflets, business cards, posters, booklets)
From time to time we may provide online or magazines editorials too.
It is your responsibility and/or the responsibility of your guests to come and speak to the photographer prior to the wedding/event/photoshoot to inform them of any circumstances in which a person cannot have their photograph taken in instances such as:
Foster/ Adoption or looked after children
Special Forces/ Intelligence Services
Data Protection Officer
GDPR introduces a duty to appoint a data protection officer (DPO). As a sole trader I, Ruth Clements will act as the Data Protection Officer. Any questions or concerns you have in relation to Data Protection should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
