Website Use
​The use of the website does not require any personal information when you visit our Site. Should you wish to provide your personal details on the course of a product or service related enquiry or in transacting to receive additional information – any information you provide to us will be protected from unauthorised access and you will be informed of exactly how your information is to be used. The details below state the exact way in which information practices are handled by MacRaith Photography below.
Your Personal Information
​By Personal Information we are referring to a visitor’s personal name, e-mail address and any other information they deem fit to provide. Personal Information can be gathered via an online contact form or by interacting with one of MacRaith Photography’s Social Media platforms. We may also request Personal Information when hosting a competition whereby applicants must apply to participate.
Under no circumstances will any Personal Information be used for anything other than the reason it has been submitted for. We reserve the right to use any Personal Information for promotion administration purposes, including but not limited to verification and notification of winners as applicable.
All correspondence to MacRaith Photography online is password protected and MacRaith Photography is solely responsible for the handling and managing of all personal data.
​Any Personal Information obtained regarding an enquiry will be stored within the medium in which it was received and, unless a booking is complete, all Personal Information will be anonymised prior to the date of the event or six months after final contact is made (which ever is later). Where a booking is made, relevant Personal Information provided by the client will be stored for a period of ten (10) years after the date of the event.
Personal information shall not be shared with Third Party operators or websites, unless considered necessary when completing your transaction. This Site holds no responsibility for privacy policies on other sites, but endeavors to only work with GDPR compliant companies.
MacRaith Photography may need to disclose Personal Information, when necessary, in the instance of insurance claim, or legal reason that may occur. Wherever possible MacRaith Photography will inform those affected prior to the release of Personal Information.
Communication with you
MacRaith Photography will contact you regarding your enquiry, booking, to collect fees or monies owed, or as otherwise necessary. For these purposes we may contact you via email, telephone, text message, social media messages and / or postal mail.
GDPR legislation states that a photograph may contain some form of personal data where they can be processed to allow “the unique identification or authentication of a natural person”. MacRaith Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless contracted to do so. Guests at events, where MacRaith Photography has been contracted to capture images, appear in photos taken by MacRaith Photography as a part of the documentation of the event. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by MacRaith Photography as detailed in this Privacy Policy.
In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, clients and guests are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of MacRaith Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.
Operating within the parameters of legitimate interests as laid out in GDPR legislation, the disproportionate effort involved in providing Privacy Policy information to all guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. Booking clients are therefore requested in their contract to direct their guests to read this Privacy Policy in advance of the event and to advise them to contact us in advance with any concerns around the processing of their personal data, namely being photographed.
Your Right to Access information or Withdraw your Data
Anyone photographed by MacRaith Photography, whether a client or guest, and whether past or current may withdraw consent for a photograph in which they appear to be displayed. The process for this is to email  specifying the photo in question. After the request has been made, MacRaith Photography will take the necessary step to remove the image online.
You have the right to contact MacRaith Photography at anytime and ask to view the Personal Information that the business has stored on you. You have the right to ask to have such information deleted or removed. If you would like access to your stored data please contact MacRaith Photography at
