EXTERNAL WEBSITE LINKS & THIRD PARTIES

Although we only look to include quality, safe and relevant external links, users are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website.

We cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite our best efforts. Users should therefore note that they click on external links at their own risk and we cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.


CLIENT DATA HELD ON FILE

We take care over the processes around looking after personal data stored on our physical systems. Tobiah Tayo Photography holds the following personal data of clients:

1. names
2. addresses
3. phone numbers
4. email addresses

within soft copy and sometimes hard copy contracts as well as soft copy wedding client ‘day plan’ documents. Soft copy contracts and day plans are safely stored within my password protected Laptop computer, iPhone & Ipad and backed up to external hard drives. Hard copy contracts are filed in my home office.

Client photos are safely stored within my password protected home office PC and backed up to external hard drives. An additional cloud copy of images is stored on GDPR compliant Dropbox.


CLIENTS AND WEDDING GUESTS CAPTURED IN PHOTOS

Under GDPR legislation, a photograph may in some instances constitute a form of personal data where they can be processed to allow "the unique identification or authentication of a natural person". Tobiah Tayo Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless consensually contracted to do so. Guests at weddings appear in photos taken by Tobiah Tayo Photography as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Tobiah Tayo Photography as detailed in this privacy policy.

In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, Wedding clients and guests are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of 'legitimate interests'. The taking of photographs of wedding guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Tobiah Tayo 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 wedding guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. Wedding 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.


SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY & USAGE

We adopt a safe and responsible Social Media Policy. While we may have official profiles on social media platforms users are advised to verify the authenticity of such profiles before engaging with, or sharing information with such profiles. We will never ask for personal details on social media platforms. Users are advised to conduct themselves appropriately when engaging with us on social media.


DISPLAY OF IMAGES

We may display any photographs to promote Tobiah Tayo Photography on the Tobiah Tayo Photography website and blog, on social media, on wedding blogs, on wedding 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 Tobiah Tayo Photography's client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Tobiah Tayo Photography as detailed in this privacy policy.
