Internet Privacy and Cookies Policy
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) recognises certain categories of personal information as sensitive and therefore requiring more protection, for example information about your health, ethnicity and religious beliefs. I will not collect this type of personal data.
Storing Your Personal Data
GDPR applies to all countries within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and those countries are therefore subjected to the same level of data protection law. In operating my website, it may become necessary to transfer data that we collect from you to locations outside of the EEA for processing and storing. By providing your personal data to us, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing. We do our utmost to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to make sure that your data is stored securely.
Unfortunately, no transmission of your personal information over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure – however, once we have received your personal information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try and prevent unauthorised access.
The personal information that you provide (names/address/tel no’s /email addresses etc) is held on my computer/ icloud / Dropbox until the end of the year of your particular ceremony. For example if you were to book me for a wedding in August 2020 tomorrow (Feb 2018) I will hold your data until the end of 2020 at which time it will be deleted from my computer and my cloud storage.
I will retain a printed copy of my client details together with your booking form for HMRC purposes only. All other printed information is shredded and disposed of. The only computer records I will keep beyond the end of the year of your ceremony is the script that I have produced.
*If you’d like me to delete your data sooner, just let me know by email to email@example.com and I will comply *
Albeit I will be deleting your data from my storage facilities i.e. Dropbox / icloud I cannot be held responsible for their storage retention methods.
By signing a contract with me you are agreeing to my storage methods. If you don’t want your details stored electronically by me please advise me at the time of signing.
