V) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is GDPR?
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 users have the right to understand how their data is collected, used and stored.
Which are my rights as a user?
We have listed below the rights that users have; some of these may be complex and therefore they have been summarised for easier understanding. Users should read the relevant laws and law guidance from the authorities for a full explanation of these rights.
Alistair Veryard Photography ensures and will ensure compliance when data collected, is used in accordance with the right for users to be informed and opt-in or out. For example, if you send us an email or fill up the ‘Let’s Chat’ form you acknowledge and consent that your data will be stored. We will store invoices and other personal data for a seven-year period after the service and fully deleted after. Wedding information, notes and planning will be kept in storage for a maximum of two years after the service.
We can delete any of this personal data upon request, whenever it doesn’t affect the running of an agreed service, by contacting us to [email protected].
The rights GDPR protects are:
1. The right to access
1.1. You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee. You can request your personal data by contacting us.
2. The right to rectification
2.1 You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.
3. The right to erasure
However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure where processing is necessary such as exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
4. The right to restrict processing
4.1.2. We no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification.
Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may have to continue to store your personal data. However, it will only be processed with your consent for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest.
5. The right to object processing
and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
6. The right to data portability
6.1 The right to data portability gives individuals the right to receive personal data they have provided to a controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. It also gives them the right to request that a controller transmits this data directly to another controller.
7. The right to complain to a supervisory authority
7.1. If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
8. The right to withdrawn consent
8.1. To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to us.
