CLIENT GALLERIES

Angela Fenwick Photography creates a client gallery for some clients to whom photos are delivered as part of the services contracted.

Their privacy policy can be found here.  Some clients will receive some images via GoogleDrive and may have to register first, their privacy policy can be found here.

Only Angela Fenwick will have access to your personal data (email address) stored on Pixieset system on behalf of Angela Fenwick Photography. It will only be used as detailed above, will not be used for any other marketing purposes and will not be passed onto any third parties. Pixieset’s technical support team will have the means to access to your personal data (email address) but will never access or share this data other than by request from Angela Fenwick.

EXTERNAL WEBSITE LINKS & THIRD PARTIES

Although we only look to include quality, safe and relevant external links, users are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website. We cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite our best efforts. Users should therefore note that they click on external links at their own risk and we cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.

CLIENT DATA HELD ON FILE

We take care over the processes around looking after personal data stored on our physical systems. Angela Fenwick Photography holds the following personal data of clients:

  1. i)  Names
  2. ii)  Addresses (including email addresses)
  3. iii)  Phone numbers

within soft copy and sometimes hard copy contracts as well as soft copy client ‘shoot plan’ documents. Soft copy contracts and day plans are safely stored within my password protected home office iMac and backed up to three encrypted external hard drives.  Client photos are safely stored within my password protected home office iMac and backed up to three encrypted external hard drives. An additional cloud copy of all images is stored on GDPR compliant GoogleDrive and Dropbox.

CLIENTS CAPTURED IN PHOTOS

Under GDPR legislation, a photograph may in some instances constitute a form of personal data where they can be processed to allow “the unique identification or authentication of a natural person”. Angela Fenwick Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless consensually contracted to do so. Guests/attendees at events appear in photos taken by Angela Fenwick  Photography as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos. Guests/attendees captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Angela Fenwick Photography as detailed in this privacy policy.

In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, clients and guests/attendees are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of guests/attendees when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Angela Fenwick Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data whichoverrides those legitimate interests.

Operating within the parameters of legitimate interests as laid out in GDPR legislation, the disproportionate effort involved in providing privacy policy information to all event guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. Clients are therefore requested to direct their guests/attendees to read this privacy policy in advance of the event and to advise them to contact us in advance with any concerns around the processing of their personal data, namely being photographed.

DISPLAY OF IMAGES

We may display any photographs to promote Angela Fenwick Photography on the Angela Fenwick Photography website and blog, on social media, on 3rd party blogs, on photography related websites, in exhibitions, in advertising, brochures, magazine articles and other such material, providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to Angela Fenwick Photography’s client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Angela Fenwick Photography as detailed in this privacy policy.
