Privacy Policy

Welcome to my Privacy Policy Page.

First of all, let me say that your privacy is just as important to me as my own privacy and this page has been created to provide you with the details on how I collect and process your data through your use of my site (www.francescadb.com).

I collect some information from you when you fill the contact form on this website and make an enquiry. The data collected from you are necessary in order to respond to your enquiry and send the relevant information.

You might now wonder what happens to those data once they have been collected.

This privacy policy provides detailed information on what data I collect, why I collect the data, how it is used and the lawful basis on which your personal data is processed, and what your rights are under the applicable data protection and privacy laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

WHAT DO I COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND WHAT IS THE PURPOSE?

I collect the following information from you:

  • Personal information: I collect some personal information from you in two stages. The first stage is when you enquiry. In order to deal with your enquiry, I need your name, address, and e-mail address. The phone number is optional; Once you book your photo session, I collect other data (gender and date of birth; country, as well as the names, dates of birth, gender and other details about your family members and other participants in a photography session), together with any other information that you elect to provide to me. 

In providing my services I create photographs which may identify you, your family members and other participants and that may be considered personal data.  My photographs may be produced in print and digital format.  You are responsible for ensuring that all participants in a photography session have been provided with a copy of this privacy policy.

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We use your personal information in the following ways:

  • To provide you with our services and to create and deliver the products you have requested and contact you regarding your use of the services. Such use is necessary to respond to or implement your request and for the performance of the contract between you and us.

  • As necessary for certain legitimate business interests, which include the following: dealing with any enquiries you make; if you ask us to delete your data or to be removed from our marketing lists and we are required to fulfil your request, to keep basic data to identify you and prevent further unwanted processing; and to comply with legal obligations, (b) respond to requests from competent authorities; (b) protect our operations; (c) protect our rights, safety or property, and/or that of our affiliated businesses, you or others; and (d) enforce or defend legal rights, or prevent damage.

With your consent, I may use your photographs to promote and advertise our business, including (a) in my studio and in my printed publications, presentations, promotional materials (including leaflets, brochures, stickers, bookmarks, posters, factsheets, calendars); (b) on my website and other digital advertising of our services; and (c) in social media forums such as Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook.

I may provide you with information about goods or services, events and other promotions we feel may interest you. I will contact you by email only with your consent, if this was given at the time you provided us with the personal data.

I may use your personal data for other purposes which you have consented to at the time of providing your data.

As used in this Privacy Policy, “legitimate interests” means my interests in conducting and managing our business. When I process your personal data for my legitimate interests, I make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you, and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate interests do not automatically override your interests. We will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you unless we have your consent or those activities are otherwise required or permitted to by law. You have the right to object at any time to processing of your personal data that is based on our legitimate interests, on grounds relating to your particular situation (for more information on your rights, please see “Your Data Protection Rights” section below).

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We share your personal data with third parties in the following situations:

  • Service Providers: I sometimes engage selected third parties who act on my behalf to support our operations, such as providers of specialist services, including retouching, printers, framers, book binders and client gallery.  Pursuant to my instructions, these parties may access, process or store your personal data in the course of performing their duties to us and solely in order to perform the services we have hired them to provide; 

  • Business Transfers: if we sell my business or my company assets are acquired by a third party personal data held by us about our customers may be one of the transferred assets.

  • Administrative and Legal Reasons: if I need to disclose your personal data (i) to comply with a legal obligation and/or judicial or regulatory proceedings, a court order or other legal process. (ii) to protect me, my members or contractors against loss or damage. This may include (without limit) exchanging information with the police, courts or law enforcement organizations

YOUR DATA PROTECTION RIGHTS

Certain applicable data protection laws give you specific rights in relation to your personal data. In particular, if the processing of your personal data is subject to the GDPR, you have the following rights in relation to your personal data:

  • Right to rectification: If your personal data is inaccurate or incomplete, you are entitled to ask that I correct or complete it. If I shared your personal data with others, we will tell them about the correction where possible. If you ask us, and where possible and lawful to do so, we will also tell you with whom we shared your personal data so you can contact them directly.

  • Right to erasure: You may ask to delete or remove your personal data, such as where our legal basis for the processing is your consent and you withdraw consent. If I shared your data with others, we will tell them about the erasure where possible. If you ask us, and where possible and lawful to do so, we will also tell you with whom we shared your personal data with so you can contact them directly. We may continue processing personal data where this is necessary for a legitimate interest in doing so, as described in this Privacy Policy.

  • Right to restrict processing: You may ask me to restrict or ‘block’ the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances, such as where you contest the accuracy of the data or object to me processing it. I will tell you before I lift any restriction on processing. If I shared your personal data with others, we will tell them about the restriction where possible. If you ask us, and where possible and lawful to do so, I will also tell you with whom we shared your personal data so you can contact them directly.

  • Right to withdraw consent: If I rely on your consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of processing of your data before I received notice that you wished to withdraw your consent.

  • Right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority: If you have a concern about my privacy practices, including the way I handled your personal data, you can report it to the UK data protection authority (the Information Commissioner’s Office or ICO), or, as the case may be, any other competent data protection authority of an EU member state that is authorised to hear those concerns.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights please contact us as described in the “Contact” section below. We may also need to ask you for further information to verify your identity before we can respond to any request.
