Emails and contact information - Emails and contacts are stored electronically across password protected devices and hosted by Google.
Accounting information- invoices, estimates, and statements are secured electronically and password protected
Media - All content shot in undertaking a commission is stored and catalogued by filename based on date and content, on a password protected desktop computer, laptop and external drive. Clients may at their request, receive a link to file sharing services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, WeTransfer, or Zenfolio.
Metadata - Where required images are stored with embedded information in the form of a generic caption describing the occasion. Names of the subject are included in the metadata where relevant and in gathering such information, consent is agreed. The metadata remains within the file and travels with the image if it is passed to further locations.
Consent Forms - Consent forms are provided by the commissioning agent and describe the intent for the images's use. Such forms would require name, address, age and contact details. Forms are either passed to the commissioning agent on site or digitally scanned, shared with the agents' digital controller and then shredded.
EVENTS AND LEGITIMATE INTEREST
Guests at events may appear in images taken by STEVE BABB PHOTOGRAPHY as part of the recording of the event. In such instances attendees are photographed within GDPR 'legitimate interests' guidelines. The taking of photographs when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interest of the photography business, unless there is a good reason to protect an individual's personal data which supersedes the legitimate interest claim. Clients are requested where possible to minimise any potential risk by making clear that photography will be taking place, either verbally of visually, thereby allowing attendees the opportunity of making it known that they do not wish to be photographed.
