We are delighted that you have shown an interest or have booked your wedding photography and/or video services with us.
Data protection management is a high priority of Hart-Edwards Photography and Film. The use of our internet pages is possible without any sharing of personal data, but should you decide to make an enquiry or book our services via the website, email, or phone call, the exchange of personal data is necessary.
There is no statutory basis for such exchange of data, we will obtain consent from you at the time you exchange this information with us, either explicitly via a conversation or in writing through an email enquiry or by completing our contact page.
Hart-Edwards Photography and Film have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure your data is protected through our website. However, internet based data transmission may have some security gaps and therefore absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason you are also free to make contact with us via email email@example.com or via telephone call on 07824508402.
