Jai Eastwood Photography
I will give you my setup in a nutshell and in plain English, followed by the essential legal jargon. I run my business in a very simple manner and your privacy resulting in dealings with me and any information collected is treated very carefully.
Here are the things you are entitled to know and options you have :
The GDPR provides the following rights for individuals:
When you make your initial contact through this website and the contact page, or directly through email, facebook or even text, then that information such as your name, email address, phone number or any other information you choose to give, is only kept for as long as needed for our business interactions, I do not keep addresses to market to in anyway , nor do I give any of your information to any third parties .
Should you end up becoming a client, and enjoy the process of creating wonderful images, then those images being precious as they are, will be kept my me indefinitely, I do not have the heart to delete any images unless specifically requested and most clients like to know they are being kept safe in archive for a possible revisit in future years, The images themselves are kept in an external hardrive well away from the computer and in a safe place, meaning that should my computer be compromised in any way, there is no access to your images, I don’t even use cloud storage for this very reason. However one of the GDPR rights is that you have the right to be forgotten, and most certainly you can contact me to arrange to have the images permanently deleted.
When you have had your shoot for many people it is a complete joy to have an upload to show their friends and family, and this would be through Facebook and Instagram and sometimes It is nice to update my website with a new image to show other people examples of my work, however, this would only happen after you have physically signed a permission form, giving specific consent to where and how you are happy for the images to be seen, sometimes in might be a digital version that I can send if that is easier for you. You are also at liberty to remove that permission at any point down the line should your wishes change and any image used would certainly be removed with pleasure, you would just email me to let me know.
Payment information such as you card details are not kept by me at all, you will have dealt directly with Worldpay or with the bank if it was a direct transfer, you would have confirmation of that with the transaction. Your orders are kept manually in a book for proof of business transactions as required by the tax office.
This is my summary, to follow is more information on how websites themselves work, and the information they need to collect to operate, or general information to gauge people’s interests and routes used to find the website and a general more technical overview of points I have already made. Should you wish to ever discuss any of these points, please do not hesitate to do so at : email@example.com the purpose of these recent Data Protection changes to regulation is you give you peace of mind, and I hope this explanation helps.
