For example, we can use cookies to look at aggregate patterns like the average number of views for a blog post that users perform. We can use such analysis to gain insights about how to improve the functionality and user experience of the website.

We use cookies, tracking pixels, and other related technologies from third-party partners such as Google for measurement services, better targeting ads, and for marketing purposes. These cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies allow us to display Jack Bamford Photography promotional material to you on other sites you visit across the Internet.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

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”. Jack Bamford Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless contracted to do so. Guests at events, where Jack Bamford Photography has been contracted to capture images, appear in photos taken by Jack Bamford 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 Jack Bamford 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 Jack Bamford 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 Jack Bamford 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 Jack Bamford Photography’s client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Jack Bamford Photography as detailed in this Privacy Policy.

Jack Bamford Photography retains the full copyright of any photographs produced.

How long we retain your data

The process for this is to email specifying the photo in question. After the request has been made, Jack Bamford Photography will take the necessary step to remove the image online.

You have the right to contact Jack Bamford Photography at anytime 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 Jack here; jack@jackbamfordphotography.co.uk
