Privacy policy

This privacy statement explains how Simon Gough Photography deals with client data.  We operate as a Limited Company.

What information do we collect?

We only collect basic personal data given to us by you in relation to your wedding, portrait or commercial booking.  This will include your name, address, email, mobile number and anything else that is relevant to your booking.  When you use our website we don’t collect or process any information from you.  The only information we have is what you give us.

Why we collect your data

We need your basic personal data in order to communicate with you in order to fulfill our duties as set out in your contract.  In other words, we just use it to make sure we turn up at the right place at the right time, on the right day! We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to provide the services detailed in your contract.

What we do with your data

All the personal data we hold is processed by myself in Wales.  We will never make your personal data available to 3rd parties unless required to by law.

How long we keep your data

We keep your images for the length of time agreed upon in our contract with you, after which time they will be deleted. Your personal information will be kept for as long as necessary to fulfill our contractual relationship with you.

All our systems have industry standard security systems in place to keep your information safe.  However, despite best efforts, no security system is impenetrable.  In the unlikely event of a security breach, we will promptly notify you and the proper authorities as required by the law.

What we would also like to do with your data

We very occasionally use your name and email address to let you know about future offers.  This information is not shared with third parties and you can unsubscribe at any time via phone, email or our website.

What if you aren’t happy

If at any time you believe the information we are holding is incorrect you have the right to ask to see it so it can be corrected or deleted.  If you want to complain about how we have handled your personal data, please get in touch with me at so I can look into the matter.  After that, if you aren’t happy with my response or believe I am not treating your data in line with the law you can complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
