We are committed to protecting the right of privacy of all persons regardless of information being received directly or through our website and mobile website www.denniganphotography.ie (http://www.denniganphotography.ie) ("website").
1. What information is being collected?
We only collect data where necessary for our legitimate business interests and to fulfil our contractual obligations to our clients. When you order products or services from Dennigan Photography, we will collect a variety of information about people using our services such as your name and contact details. In some cases, we may be required to gather "special categories" of personal data such as the age and gender of participants of a photoshoot.
2. How is it being collected?
The majority of our data is collected directly from you in order to provide you with a service. In some cases, data may be given to us by a third party, for example, where our services have been obtained by a PR Agency on your behalf.
3. Use of your information
We use your information to supply you with the goods or services which you have ordered from us. We will use the information provided to fulfil your order and to help us administer and support our business. We may use your information to contact you about important changes or developments to our website or services or to provide follow-up information.
Where you have explicitly agreed, we may also use your information for marketing purposes and to contact you about other products or services which might be of interest to you. This contact may be by post, phone, email or via social media. We will only contact you in this way where you have explicitly consented, and you can withdraw your consent to this contact at any time.
We will never rent or sell your data to a third party. However, situations may arise where we disclose your information to a third party to allow us to provide the services to you. These include but are not limited to:
1. Delivery and postal service;
2. PR Agencies;
3. Newspapers; i.e. where Dennigan photography has been hired to take photographs for the purpose of publication in a newspaper or online media;
4. Subcontractors; who are hired on behalf of Dennigan photography;
5. Social media platforms: we will not post your pictures to Dennigan photography social media webpages where you ask us not to do so. However, if our services have been requested by an indirect client such as a PR Agency, we cannot control how they use their pictures;
6. Website: Your pictures may be used on Dennigan Photography's website as part of a portfolio of work. They will not be used where you ask us not to do so. Your names and other data will not be linked to these pictures.
7. Where required to do so by law.
Where the processing of Data is carried out by a third party data processor on behalf of Dennigan Photography, we endeavour to ensure that they are compliant with security measures required by statute to prevent unauthorised disclosure of Data.
Communication and transfer of information via internet transfer or by email is not completely secure and may involve the transfer of data through third parties outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). To the limited extent that it is necessary to transfer your data outside of the EEA, we will ensure appropriate safeguards are in place to protect the privacy and integrity of such data.
5. Security Measures
We use security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and against the unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.
All images taken by Dennigan Photography are uploaded to the Website. Images are password protected in our client area. A direct link to these images will be emailed to the designated contact person and they will not be accessible without the unique password assigned. Images are also backed up on an external drive for the necessary period.
6. Retention Periods
We will retain emails and correspondence relating to our engagement for a period of one year after the engagement has ended. This is to allow us to follow up on any queries which may arise in relation to our engagement.
All imagery will be stored on our hard drives for a period of two years after the engagement has ended.
There may be situations where the law requires us to retain certain data for a longer period of time, such as payment records for tax purposes.
7. Your Rights
Your Data is your property and you have the right to request the following:
A. Request Access to your Data (this is known as a Data Subject Access Request") allowing you to check that we are lawfully processing such Data;
B. Request Correction of your Data we hold so as to allow you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information corrected.
C. Request Erasure of your Data (provided we are not required to retain the data of the performance of your contract or to comply with our legal obligations);
D. Object to the Processing of your Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest;
E. Request Restriction of Processing of your Data from Automated Decision making or while you carry out one of the above requests;
