Soft copy contracts and day plans are safely stored within my password protected home office computer and backed up to external hard drives.

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”. 5 Little Boys Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless consensually contracted to do so. Guests at weddings & event attendees appear in photos taken by 5 Little Boys Photography as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos. Guests & attendees captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by 5 Little Boys Photography as detailed in this privacy policy. In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, Wedding clients and guests & event attendees are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of wedding guests & event attendees when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of 5 Little Boys Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual͛s 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 & attendees at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. All clients, wedding or otherwise 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.

We adopt a safe and responsible Social Media Policy.
