GDPR regulations state that I have to explain what data I keep and what I do with it. Given the nature of my business, this amounts to very little data.
I collect only the data necessary to reply to your enquiry and to fulfil the job that you hire me for. Ie. Your name(s), address(s), telephone number(s) and e-mail address(s).
This data is collected when you fill in the contact form on my website, e-mail me and / or fill in a booking form. Paper copies of this data are kept in a secure cabinet in my locked home. Electronic copies are kept on a password protected computer.
If an enquiry does not go on to become a booking then all data will be deleted after 60 days. Where a booking is made I keep data for 7 years, in-line with my accounting data procedures.
When you make a payment to me I do not keep any record of card or bank account details once the transaction is complete. I do of course, however, keep a record that the transaction took place in my accounts.
You have the right to:
confirmation as to whether I am processing data regarding you.
access to information regarding you data that is stored at any time
rectification of inaccurate or incorrect information
erasure of your data.
For clients desiring an on-line gallery I use a third party gallery hosting site. I will need to input your names and e-mail addresses into this site in order to ensure secure access for you to your gallery. This gallery provider is carefully chosen, highly reputable and fully GDPR compliant.
