GDPR – Privacy Policy

Jai Eastwood Photography

This privacy policy is effective from 25/05/2018 in line with new GDPR guidelines


I will give you my setup in a nutshell  and in plain English, followed by the essential legal jargon.  I run my business in a very simple manner and your privacy resulting in dealings with me and any information collected  is treated very carefully.

Here are the things you are entitled to know and options you have :

Your rights

The GDPR provides the following rights for individuals:

  1. The right to be informed
  2. The right of access
  3. The right to rectification
  4. The right to erasure
  5. The right to restrict processing
  6. The right to data portability
  7. The right to object
  8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.


When you make your initial contact through this website  and the contact page, or directly through email, facebook or even text,  then that information such as your name,  email address, phone number or any other information you  choose to give, is only kept for as long as needed for our business interactions, I do not keep addresses to market to in anyway , nor do I give any of your information to any third parties .

Should you end up becoming a client, and enjoy the process of creating wonderful images, then those images being precious as they are, will be kept my me indefinitely, I do not have the heart to delete any images unless specifically requested and most clients like to know they are being kept safe in archive for a possible revisit in future years,    The images themselves are kept in an external hardrive well away from the computer and in a safe place, meaning that should my computer be compromised in any way, there is no access to your images, I don’t even use cloud storage for this very reason.  However one of the GDPR rights is that you have the right to be forgotten, and most certainly you can contact me to arrange to have the images permanently deleted.

When you have had your shoot for many people it is  a complete joy to have an upload to show their friends and family, and this would be through Facebook and Instagram and sometimes It is nice to update my website with a new image to show other people examples of my work, however, this would only happen after you have physically signed a permission form, giving specific consent to where and how you are happy for the images to be seen,  sometimes in might be a digital version that I can send if that is easier for you.   You are also at liberty to remove that permission at any point down the line should your wishes change and  any image used would certainly be removed with pleasure, you would just email me to let me know.

 Payment information such as you card details are not kept by me at all, you will have dealt directly with Worldpay  or with the bank if it was a direct transfer, you would have confirmation of that with the transaction.  Your orders are kept  manually in a book for proof of business transactions as required by the tax office.

This is my summary, to follow is more information on how websites themselves work, and the information they need to collect to operate, or general information to gauge people’s interests and routes used to find the website and a general  more technical overview of points I have already made.   Should you wish to ever discuss any of these points, please do not hesitate to do so at : info@jaieastwood.co.uk  the purpose of these recent Data Protection changes to regulation is you give you peace of mind, and I hope this explanation helps.
