EXTERNAL WEBSITE LINKS & THIRD PARTIES
Although I 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.

CLIENT DATA HELD ON FILE
I take care over the processes around looking after personal data stored on our physical systems. Jeff Pardoen Photography holds the following personal data of clients:
- addresses (home and email)
- phone numbers
within soft copy and sometimes hard copy contracts. Soft copy contracts are safely stored on my password protected home office Desktop computer and also kept on file on GDPR compliant GoDaddy servers.
Client photos are safely stored on my password protected home office Desktop computer and backed up to an encrypted external hard drive. An additional cloud copy of all images is stored on GDPR compliant Google Drive.
CLIENTS AND WEDDING GUESTS CAPTURED IN PHOTOS
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 Jeff Pardoen Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.
WITHDRAWAL OF CONSENT
Anyone photographed by Jeff Pardoen Photography, whether a client or wedding guest, and whether past or current may withdraw consent for a photograph in which they appear to be displayed. The process for this is to email Jeff Pardoen Photography at email@example.com specifying the photo in question. Following the request, Jeff Pardoen Photography will then remove the photo from online and printed display wherever it appears.
