All of the information and data that I collect is on a lawful basis in order to be able to gain photographic consent in order to meet my legal obligation to photograph minors / to arrange fulfilment of a contract.

I may also share your information with MailChimp, whereby your data is transferred outside of the European Economic Area to United States under the protection of EU/US Privacy Shield.
The markdennis.com website is hosted on a platform provided by an American company called Zenfolio – who provide a service to professional photographers. Your information is transferred outside of the European Economic Area to United States under the protection of EU/US Privacy Shield. Client and Photographer data stored on Zenfolio resides on Zenfolio’s secure corporate servers located in the US.
We may transfer personal data to a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) if necessary, e.g. if a third party we utilise could have servers located outside of the EEA. If this is the case, we will either obtain your consent or otherwise ensure that the transfer is legal and your data is secure by following the EU's guidelines. You can see above where we send data outside of the EEA and on what basis we do so.
The photographic data that you pay me to produce for you is uploaded onto my markdennis.com website. Unless otherwise agreed, all your photographs will be put into a password protected gallery on this website: this prevents other people from viewing your photos online. I will inform you of the password for your gallery. A photo taken at the shoot will be chosen by the photographer as a cover photo from the album. If you have any specific requirements as to who or what should or should not figure in this photo, please advise the photographer at time of booking. All photographs taken at a commissioned photographic event have inferred consent to photograph all persons or objects etc present as a result of the photographer being booked for said event.
Photographic files are stored on my Apple Mac, my external hard drive (both located at my office) and additionally, stored on an external hard drive which is stored off premises.
Your email address is similarly shared with my email service provider.
I do provide a printing service for photographs up to the size of A2, so I very rarely use outside printing labs.
There are also certain situations in which we may share access to your personal data without your explicit consent; for example, if required by law, to protect the life of an individual, or to comply with any valid legal process, government request, rule or regulation.
The reason for sharing any information about you with anyone outside the mark dennis.com organisation is in order that my services to you can be fulfilled, according to our agreed contract. Additionally, I may share information regarding my services and associated fees with my accountant. All of my suppliers, unless specified otherwise, are based within the EU.
