Hi and welcome! If you’ve clicked here it must mean you care a lot about your data privacy and the recent GDPR implementation which is great and not before time... we all deserve better protection. I really do take your privacy very seriously but will try and lighten this legal information to make it mildly more of a pleasure to digest! This page informs you of my policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information when you use the Service.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
While using our Service, I may ask you to provide me with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you, e.g. if you fill out a form on a Contact page or to check my Availability for your wedding date. This is called 'legitimate interests'. This information you give is obviously very necessary so that I can check the date and provide a quote. This information will be held up to the wedding date you specified. After this date it is deleted coz then I don't need it and I know you no longer will require a wedding photographer. Now (this is important) unlike some companies that love love love to collect data, I only use this information for the reasons stated when you provide it and don't share or sell this information to anyone outside of DB Photography. Basically, we don't indulge in remarketing so you won't get hassled.
Cookies unfortunately are not of the edible variety, but files with small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive. We use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service. Some cookies on this website help provide you with information from our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds. You may want to check out their own policies too
YOUR RIGHTS TO ACCESS INFORMATION
I'm always happy to show you the information I have held about you, it’ll usually be the standard wedding things you’ve told me about... sometimes though I make a note of other stuff that came up in our conversations... like things that we share a passion for, for example Rum or perhaps a honeymoon destination, that sort of thing. If some of the information is wrong, you have the right to correct it, and I would definitely recommend this. Neither of us want me turning up at the wrong wedding or offering useless advice on the best places to drink Rum in the Caribbean when your honeymooning in Vegas! If you’d like me to delete all your personal data, you have the right to request it, but I wouldn’t recommend asking for that until after your wedding. I definitely need to know stuff about you so I can tailor my approach and offer my best.
The security of your Personal Information is very important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We don't take any form of payment on this site, so no worries there.

PHOTO USAGE AND STORAGE
Although photos of people are deemed as personal data I have 'legitimate interests' for storing and using all photographs I take at any wedding or event I am commissioned to cover. My photographs are my intellectual property and I have the rights to use them for marketing purposes after the wedding. This could involve, online galleries, social media sites, this or suppliers websites and possibly sample albums. I do ask for these permissions when you book, but if you change your mind I really don't mind keeping some or all of your images private. I'm sure all your invited guests will assume that if you have a Professional Photographer present on the day they may well end up in one, two or a dozen plus photos. However, can I ask that you make your guests aware that I am in attendance. We all know that uncle Charlie loves having his photo taken but Aunt Sally might be having a bad hair day. So if someone would rather not be snapped please tell them to make themselves 'known' to me and I will do my very best to avoid them! I store my images for a minimum of 12 months after the wedding. You are welcome to approach me at anytime to ask me to remove all the images I have as long as you're absolutely sure you wont lose your own files!
Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13 (“Children”). We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our servers immediately. Parents worried about images of their children can always contact me, however please ask the bride and groom's permission before asking me to delete bridal party photos which include their very cute bridesmaids, flower girls or page boys.
