Privacy & Data Protection Policy

small>We have recently reviewed all of our policies to ensure full GDPR compliance – May 2018. The nature of hosting a photography session will require us to collect some information in advance of the photoshoot to maximise safety of the photographs, especially those of children. For this reason we will at times ask for contact information to be supplied in advance of a photoshoot by yourself or the Organisation you are associated with.

The collection of this information confirms to the standard known as “legitimate interest” under GDPR and the welfare of children is one of the GDPR’s* foremost concerns, something we as a company take very seriously.

If you would like to know more about the information we collect and how we use it, you can review our privacy policy here and should you wish to change any data we hold on you personally, please complete the data change request form found here.

*as well as the PECR policy, which also plays a part in data collection, use and overriding safe handling considerations

It’s important that you know what personal information Club Legends (known here as “we” or “Club Legends”) collects about you, and how we use it.

We’ve done our best to make our explanations short and easy to understand. But, if you’d like further information, or have any questions, please contact our Data Protection Officer using the details in the ‘Contact’ section below.

If we ever make any major changes to our privacy practices, we’ll let you know. If necessary, we’ll also ask for your permission.

Marketing

We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you. We only use the data you provide to us directly for this purpose along with the Aggregated Data provided to us by our analytics partners and we do not track what other websites you may visit after visiting our site, though in common with most websites, we may register the site which referred you to our site (e.g. a search engine).

We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising.

We generally only send electronic marketing – such as email marketing – to people who have previously bought similar products from us and this is in our legitimate interests. We will always offer a way out of receiving this marketing when you first purchase our products and in every marketing communication afterwards. We may on occasion send out postal marketing for the purpose of growing our sales which is in our legitimate interests and in this scenario we will rely on you to let us know if you do not want to receive this by opting out of marketing (see Opting out below).

Where you have not previously bought from us but have registered your details with us (for example by entering a competition or signing up for a newsletter), we will only send you marketing communications if you opted into receiving marketing at the time and so given us your express consent (which you may withdraw at any time – see Opting out below).

We may also share certain data with third party social media platforms in order to show you targeted ads when you visit them. We do this by:

  • The use of cookies which capture your visits to our website. Please refer to our Cookies Policy for more information
  • we may also provide these platforms with your email address to create ‘audiences’ of users fitting within a certain demographic/category so that we can target our marketing. Please check the social media platforms’ terms for more details of these services. This is in our legitimate interests of sending you direct marketing. See ‘Opting out’ below for details of how you can adjust your marketing preferences. Our Cookies Policy also explains how you can adjust your cookies preferences.

Opting Out

You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by logging into your account and adjusting your marketing preferences, by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time.

If you opt out of receiving email marketing from us, we will no longer share your email address with social media platforms (see ‘External Third Parties’ below). However, you may continue to see our ads through them, due to their general demographic targeting. Please check the social media platforms for more detail of how to opt out from seeing these ads.

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, or related correspondence, and we will continue to process such data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and only ever as permitted by law.
