Burfly Photography uses images for blog posts and social media posts, however we never use surnames within the these or within the file information embedded in the images. Further to this, whilst Burfly Photography actively encourages wedding testimonials and comments below blog posts, we advise you to only use your first name followed by (The Bride) or (The Groom), so that there is no connection between a surname, blog post or image. The email address you supply when leaving a comment isn’t visible or accessible to anyone other than us and only to us when we are logged into the blog’s admin section. We will also ensure that comments from wedding guests do not include the bride and/or groom’s surname.

DATA COLLECTION

We may collect the following information through a questionnaire/contract sent via email:

EMAIL ADDRESSES FOR GALLERY LOGIN
To deliver images to clients, I make use of a gallery and proofing service: Shootproof. When clients share their galleries with friends and family, they will need to enter their email address to gain access to Shootproof, with the email address acting as a login. This allows users to create favourite lists, leave comments and also share images effectively. This is also necessary for the ordering of prints. For further information about how Shootproof collects and processes personal data please visit the Shootproof website.
