GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS
Mike Dunlevy Photography takes your privacy very seriously, as outlined in our policies below.
We respect your privacy and want you to remain in control of your personal information. It is important to us. From 25th May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law takes effect. It gives individuals in the EUmore control over how their data is used and sets obligations for businesses like ours that process customer information. We have updated our Privacy Notice in line with these changes and we encourage you to read this.
Hopefully, it will answer any questions you may have. Mike Dunlevy Photography respects the need to securely maintain any personal data supplied to us by any individual or company. Your records are stored away from our website for added security and are not accessible through the website. Any data processed by us will be done lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.
We will make every effort to keep your details secure and will NEVER pass your details on to any third-party individual or organisation. The only exception to this will be when we use your email addresses for our occasional
newsletters. Email campaigns are sent out by a highly trusted specialist (we are currently using Mail Chimp) that will only use your emails for a specific promotion, and only with the prior approval of Mike Dunlevy Photography. The only information that is forwarded to them is your title, name and email address. Residential addresses and telephone numbers are withheld by us.
Addresses and phone numbers are collected purely to enable us to contact clients in connection with existing enquiries or bookings that they have made. We will never make unsolicited marketing phone calls.
Mail Chimp is a provider of a world-class email marketing platform, which by its nature has a global reach and deals with the processing of email contact and engagement information. They are committed to ensuring our customers are able to comply with their requirements under the GDPR by the May 25, 2018 enforcement timeline. Mail Chimp distribute our newsletters on our behalf.
They also allow us to see which pages on our website have been viewed by each client. Each newsletter in the future will allow each recipient of our newsletters to consent (y/n) to receiving future emails and also to consent (y/n) to us identifying which pages have been viewed.
Personal data stored by us will include names, addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers. We will never store dates of birth, bank details or credit/debit card details.
WE will always seek your consent before using your email for promotional purposes. You can easily unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the promotional email. Alternatively, you are welcome email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will indicate your new preferences in our clients’ records.
All new clients contacting US by phone will be asked whether they wish to give their consent to “opt in” to occasional marketing emails.
You are still entitled to “opt-out” at any time after “opting in”. Our downloadable booking forms will offer this option. Existing clients have already indicated their preferences under the older DPA standards of consent. These preferences will be integrated into the new GDPR system.
Existing clients that have already agreed to receive occasional emails do not need to take any further action. Their details will be seamlessly integrated into the GDPR system. They can withdraw their permission at any time.
