CLIENTS AND WEDDING GUESTS CAPTURED IN VIDEO AND 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”.  Craig Heaslip Film & 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 and video taken by Craig Heaslip Film & Photography as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos and video. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Craig Heaslip Film & Photography as detailed in this privacy policy.

In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, Wedding clients and guests are photographed and filmed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs and/or filming of wedding guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Craig Heaslip Film & Photography 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 and/or filmed.

 

WITHDRAWL OF CONSENT

Anyone photographed and/or filmed by Craig Heaslip Film & Photography, whether a client or wedding guest, and whether past or current may withdraw consent for a photograph/video in which they appear to be displayed. The process for this is to email Craig Heaslip Film & Photography at info@craigheaslip.com specifying the photo or film in question. Pursuant to the request, Craig Heaslip Film & Photography will then remove the photo or video from online and printed display wheresoever it appears within 30 days of the request.

 

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.

We may display any photographs and/or videos to promote Craig Heaslip Film & Photography wedding blogs, on wedding photography/videography related websites, in advertising, brochures, magazine articles and other such material, providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to Craig Heaslip Film & Photography client(s).
