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.

Client Data Held on File
We take care of the processes around looking after personal data stored on our physical systems. Libby Clark Photography holds the following personal data of clients:
ii) Addresses (including email addresses)
iii) Phone numbers
within soft copy and sometimes hard copy contracts as well as soft copy client ‘day plan’ documents. Soft copy contracts and day plans are safely stored within my password-protected home office PC and backed up to an encrypted external hard drive and an onsite, encrypted NAS RAID system. Hard copy contracts are filed in my secure home office.

Clients Captured in Photos
In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, clients and guests/attendees are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of guests/attendees when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Libby Clark Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.

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.
