EXTERNAL WEBSITE LINKS AND THIRD PARTIES
Although we only look to include quality, safe and relevant external links, users are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website.
We cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite our best efforts. Users should therefore note that they click on external links at their own risk and we cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.
CLIENT DATA HELD ON FILE
We take great care over the processes around looking after personal data stored on our physical systems. Blue & White's Photography holds the following personal data of clients:
within hard copy and sometimes soft copy contracts as well as soft copy wedding client ‘itinerary’ documents. Soft copy contracts and day plans are safely stored on my password protected home office computer. Hard copy contracts are stored in a lockable fire-safe filing system.
Client photos are safely stored within my password protected home office computer and backed up to two encrypted external hard drives.
CLIENTS AND WEDDING GUESTS CAPTURED PHOTOGRAPHS
In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, wedding clients and guests are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of wedding guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.
WITHDRAWAL OF CONSENT
Anyone photographed by Blue & White's Photography, whether a client or wedding guest, and whether past or current may withdraw consent for a photograph in which they appear to be displayed. If you wish to withdraw consent please email Blue & White's Photography at email@example.com specifying the photo in question, we will then remove the photo from online and printed display wheresoever it appears.

While we may have official profiles on social media platforms users are advised to verify the authenticity of such profiles before engaging with, or sharing information with such profiles.
