GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS (GDPR) 2018
Photographers on Safari takes your privacy very seriously, as outlined in our policies below. As a valued subscriber to photographersonsafari.com, we are contacting you to let you know about some changes to our Privacy Notice.
We respect your privacy and want you to remain in control of your personal information. It is important to us. From 25th May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law takes effect. It gives individuals in the EU more control over how their data is used and sets obligations for businesses like ours that process customer information. We have updated our Privacy Notice in line with these changes and we encourage you to read this. Hopefully, it will answer any questions you may have.
Photographers on Safari (hereafter referred to as POS) respects the need to securely maintain any personal data supplied to us by any individual or company. Your records are stored away from our website for added security and are not accessible through the website. Any data processed by POS will be done lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.
POS will make every effort to keep your details secure and will NEVER pass your details on to any third-party individual or organisation. The only exception to this will be when we use your email addresses for our occasional newsletters. Email campaigns are sent out by a highly trusted specialist (we are currently using Campaign Monitor) that will only use your emails for a specific POS promotion, and only with the prior approval of POS. The only information that is forwarded to them is your title, name and email address. Residential addresses and telephone numbers are withheld by POS. Addresses and phone numbers are collected purely to enable POS to contact clients in connection with existing enquiries or bookings that they have made. POS will never make unsolicited marketing phone calls.
Campaign Monitor is a provider of a world-class email marketing platform, which by its nature has a global reach and deals with the processing of email contact and engagement information. Campaign Monitor is committed to ensuring our customers are able to comply with their requirements under the GDPR by the May 25, 2018 enforcement timeline. Campaign Monitor distribute our newsletters on our behalf. They also allow us to see which pages on our website have been viewed by each client. Each newsletter in the future will allow each recipient of our newsletters to consent (y/n) to receiving future emails and also to consent (y/n) to POS identifying which pages have been viewed.
Personal data stored by POS will include names, addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers. POS will never store dates of birth, bank details or credit/debit card details.
POS will always seek your consent before using your email for promotional purposes. You can easily unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the promotional email. Alternatively, you are welcome email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will indicate your new preferences in our clients’ records.
All new clients contacting POS by phone will be asked whether they wish to give their consent to “opt in” to occasional marketing emails. You are still entitled to “opt-out” at any time after “opting in”. Our downloadable booking forms will offer this option. Existing clients have already indicated their preferences under the older DPA standards of consent. These preferences will be integrated into the new GDPR system.
Existing clients that have already agreed to receive occasional emails do not need to take any further action. Their details will be seamlessly integrated into the GDPR system. They can withdraw their permission at any time.
POS Overseas Booking Forms collect more information for the purpose of dealing with any emergencies that may arise and for the smooth running of that overseas trip/tour/safari only. These forms are stored physically until the end of the trip/tour/safari and are destroyed after its completion. None of this extra data is stored digitally and the extra information collected on these forms is not used for any other purpose.
