Now, you may have noticed recently that the world has gone GDPR mad. I’ve kept my head on about this new legislation, but I do need to explain to you what it means for your interactions with me and this website. So what happens when you fill in this form?
First, the data you enter into it is stored on the secure database that runs this website. I am the ONLY person with access to this database. Next, the email engine on this site passes your data onto me via an email, where it is stored in a second location – my office computer. It may also end up on my phone if I’ve checked my emails and picked up your enquiry there first.
So what do I do with it when I get it? Naturally, I use it to contact you about your wedding photography requirements. If you choose to book me as your wedding photographer, then we will converse via email and telephone for some time – both before and after the wedding. If you let me know that you’re not choosing me as your wedding photographer, then I will not contact you again. At any time, in either scenario, you can ask that I delete all data I hold on you. As described above, this is very easy for me to do. I will NEVER pass your details onto anybody else, without first gaining your permission. The times where this may be necessary is when I’d like to submit your wedding photos to a magazine or a blog for example, and they want to talk to you directly. I will NEVER use your details for anything else – I won’t bombard you with emails for years to come.
I hope this has reassured you that I’m up to speed with Data Protection and that I’ll be hearing from you soon.
