The use of this website does not require any personal information when you visit our Site. Should you wish to provide your personal details on the course of a product or service related enquiry or in transacting to receive additional information – any information you provide to us will be protected from unauthorised access and you will be informed of exactly how your information is to be used. The details below state the exact way in which information practices are handled by Arianna Fenton Photography below;

Your Personal Information

​By Personal Information we are referring to a visitor’s personal name, e-mail address and any other information they deem fit to provide. Personal Information can be gathered via an online contact form, by the posting of a comment in relation to content on the site, or by interacting with one of Arianna Fenton Photography’s Social Media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).

Under no circumstances will any Personal Information be used for anything other than the reason it has been submitted for.

All correspondence to Arianna Fenton Photography via email, social media, website, contact form, What’s app, messenger are password protected and Arianna Fenton Photography is solely responsible for the handling and managing of all personal data.

​Any Personal Information obtained regarding an enquiry will be stored within the medium in which it was received and, unless a booking is complete, all Personal Information will be anonymised prior to the date of the event or six months after final contact is made (which ever is later). Where a booking is made, relevant Personal Information provided by the client will be stored for a period of ten (10) years after the date of the event.

All electronic devices where your Personal Information is stored, for example, mobile phone, tablet and desktop, all contain passwords. Images are stored on external hard drives which are password protected. Any paper documents where your Personal Information can be accessed are stored in a secure, private location only accessible by Arianna Fenton Photography.

Arianna Fenton Photography may at times use an assistant or a second shooter, under these circumstances they will have access to your name and telephone number for the duration of the event. All paperwork with this Personal Information on will be destroyed after the event has been carried out.

Personal information shall not be shared with Third Party operators or websites, unless considered necessary when completing your transaction. For example, Arianna Fenton Photography uses shootproof.com as a means to distribute final photographs to clients; Arianna Fenton Photography will use your name and images to complete this order. This Site holds no responsibility for privacy policies on other sites, but endeavours to only work with GDPR compliant companies.

Arianna Fenton Photography may need to disclose Personal Information, when necessary, in the instance of insurance claim, or  legal reason that may occur. Wherever possible Arianna Fenton Photography will inform those affected prior to the release of Personal Information.

Communication with you

Arianna Fenton Photography will contact you regarding your enquiry, booking, to collect fees or monies owed, or as otherwise necessary. For  these purposes we may contact you via email, telephone, text message, and / or postal mail.

Images

GDPR legislation states that a photograph may contain some form of personal data where they can be processed to allow “the unique identification or authentication of a natural person”. Arianna Fenton Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless contracted to do so. Guests at events, where Arianna Fenton Photography has been contracted to capture images, appear in photos taken by Arianna Fenton Photography as a part of the documentation of the event. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Arianna Fenton Photography as detailed in this Privacy Policy.

In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, clients and guests are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Arianna Fenton Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data which overrides 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 guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. Booking clients are therefore requested in their contract to direct their guests 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.

We may display any photographs to promote Arianna Fenton Photography on our website, blog, on social media, 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 Arianna Fenton Photography’s client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Arianna Fenton Photography as detailed in this Privacy Policy.

Arianna Fenton Photography retains the full copyright of any photographs produced. Images captured at events will be retained for a minimum of two (2) years after the date of the event.

Your Right to Access information or Withdraw your Data

Anyone photographed by Arianna Fenton Photography, whether a client or guest, and whether past or current may withdraw consent for a photograph in which they appear to be displayed. The process for this is to email specifying the photo in question. After the request has been made, Arianna Fenton Photography will take the necessary step to remove the image online.

You have the right to contact Arianna Fenton Photography at any time and ask to view the Personal Information that the business has stored on you. You have the right to ask to have such information deleted or removed. If you would like access to your stored data please contact Arianna at hello@ariannafenton.com

Right to amend our Privacy Statement

Arianna Fenton Photography reserves the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time. Changes shall be effective right upon posting up on the Site. Last updated January 2020
