The Data I Collect, How I Use it and Why

Cookies and website visitor tracking

When using this website, you have the choice to agree to or decline Cookies. Cookies are small files installed on your browser device that allow websites like this, and many others, to find out more about your browsing behaviour. For Will Patrick Wedding Photography, the purpose of using cookies is to better understand visitor demographics to this site so that improvements can be made, as well as informing marketing and sales strategies in the future.

This website makes use of several cookies, most notably ones relating to Google Analytics and the Facebook Pixel. I also make use of a plugin that enables me to defend against malicious attacks, which uses a cookie to understand whether or not you’re a genuine user.

The lawful basis for the collection of this data is your consent. Since March 2018, this website has made use of a Cookie notice that actively seeks confirmation of acceptance or denial of the use of cookies.

Client contact information

I use client data, provided directly and voluntarily to me by clients, for two purposes. The first is to carry out contractual obligations. This means that it’s information I need to do my job. This data includes, names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and further information relating to your photography requirements.

The second purpose is for me to analyse and understand behaviour relating to sales and marketing. For example, where you heard about me and whether or not you choose to book me. This is a legitimate interest and a reasonable expectation that most people would have about a business. I perform this analysis using simple spreadsheets.

Email addresses for gallery login

To deliver images to clients, I make use of a gallery and proofing service: Pixieset. When clients share their galleries with friends and family, they will need to enter their email address to gain access, 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. This constitutes a legitimate interest under the GDPR.

Mailing lists

From time to time, I make use of mailing lists to help market my business. As of March 2018, I have deleted all data relating to mailing lists that are no longer relevant and precede GDPR coming into force. Where new mailing lists are created in the future, these will be done on the basis of explicit consent for a single purpose.
