All shoots require some legal documentation to be completed before they can be confirmed. From here you can download and view the terms and conditions for wedding, family and portrait shoots, as well as my contract cancellation document.
Full contract documentation will be sent to you following your initial enquiry should you wish to proceed with the shoot. The documents can be signed electronically.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Act on the 25th May 2018. This is my policy for handling your personal data under GDPR.
For the purposes of the GDPR, Mel Pettit Photography is the data controller and your data will be held by an externally hosted third party to aid in managing and administering your account.
As part of the booking and contracting process for any wedding, family or portrait shoot I will take, process and store all personal data you have provided electronically.
As part of the data gathering process, you will be required to tick a box on the contact form, acknowledging that the data you supplied can be held by Mel Pettit Photography. If you provide any additional contact details not relating to yourself, a consent form will be sent to each of the named parties so that they can provide their own consent to their data being held and processed by Mel Pettit Photography. Should they not consent their personal data will be deleted.
All parties have the right to request deletion of their data at any time, but removal will only be possible subject to any applicable financial accounting regulations. If, for example, your stored personal data is used to create invoices for goods or services provided by Mel Pettit Photography, your data has to be retained in order to comply with HMRC regulations for tax purposes. As such, your data may be held on record for a period between 6 and 10 years, in accordance with HMRC regulations.
Your details will never be provided to any person or company other than my supplier, in order to allow completion of an order for goods, nor will your data ever be sold to any third party.
Please contact me if you have any further questions relating to this policy.
