We also give you the option to manage your data by emailing or writing to us. We aim to respond within 28 days. If your request is complex, it may take us longer to respond but we will keep you informed of progress. We may need to ask you for additional information to confirm that you are who you say you are.

We don’t usually charge you a fee for requesting access to your data. However, if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) does permit us to charge you a reasonable fee for the administrative costs of complying with your request. We may also charge a reasonable fee based on our administrative costs if you request further copies of your data following a request. If we decide to charge a fee we will contact you to inform you. We won’t provide your data until we have received the fee.

8. How long do we hold your personal data?

We will only hold personal data for as long as is necessary. The duration will depend on your relationship with us and whether it is ongoing. We may keep your personal data for up to 7 years after our working contract with you has finished for tax and legal purposes. After this time we may choose to archive your photographs indefinitely along with your relevant details and consent forms if we believe requests for replacement images are likely.
