I do look after your data in the same way I expect mine to be protected. I never share your information with other individuals or businesses, unless you ask me to. For example, you may ask me to share your email address with others on a course with you.
I don’t like spam, so I don’t send marketing emails unless you have asked me to let you know about something specific. For example, you may have been on a Basic Course and have asked me to tell you about further training, so I may do so.
I may need to share your data with an organisation that has commissioned me. For example, when a school asks me to photograph its students I will need to share those photographs with the school and with the top class photographic printing laboratory I use.
