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. Antony R Turner Photography holds the following personal data of clients:

  • names

  • addresses

  • phone numbers

  • email addresses

This data is held on soft copy and sometimes hard copy contracts as well as soft copy wedding client ‘questionnaires’ documents. Soft copy contracts, questionnaires and day plans are safely stored on Studio Ninja (www.studioninja.co), this is our CRM studio management software which can only be accessed by Antony R Turner. Hard copy contracts are scanned and stored in Studio Ninja and the hard copy is then destroyed.

Client photos are safely stored within a password protected external Hard Drive and backed up to an additional off site encrypted external hard drive.


Clients and Wedding Guests in Photographs

Under GDPR legislation, a photograph may in some instances constitute a form of personal data where they can be processed to allow “the unique identification or authentication of a natural person”. Antony R Turner Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless consensually contracted to do so. Guests at weddings appear in photos taken by Antony R Turner Photography as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Antony R Turner Photography as detailed in this privacy policy.

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 Antony R Turner Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.

Operating within the parameters of legitimate interests as laid out in GDPR legislation, the disproportionate effort involved in providing privacy policy information to all wedding guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. Wedding clients are therefore requested to direct their guests to read this privacy policy in advance of the event and to advise them to contact us in advance with any concerns around the processing of their personal data, namely being photographed.


Withdrawal of Consent

Anyone photographed by Antony R Turner 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 Antony R Turner Photography at antony@antonyrturner.com specifying the photo in question. Following the request, Antony R Turner Photography will then remove the photo from online and printed display wheresoever it appears.


Social Media Policy and Usage

We adopt a safe and responsible Social Media Policy. 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. We will never ask for personal details on social media platforms. Users are advised to conduct themselves appropriately when engaging with us on social media. We only use social media on the following platforms: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
