Privacy Policy

I care for your privacy.

The following privacy policy or data protection declaration is here to inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data I collect, use and process. In it you can also read about the rights to which you are entitled under the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Your personal data will always be processed in line with the GDPR. When there is no legal requirement for me to collect, store or process your personal data, you would generally be asked to agree with the collection, storage and processing of it (e.g. when you try to contact me via the e-mail form on the website).

I have implemented technical and organizational measures to ensure that your personal information is trasmitted and processed in a secure way. However, no transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so I cannot guarantee absolute protection. You are free to transfer your personal information to me via alternative means, e.g. by telephone or in person.

How to get in touch with me.

Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:

What are personal data?

Personal data are details that provide information about you or could be connected to you. Such details could be a name, an identification number, location data, IP address, postal or e-mail address, but also factors specific to your physical, economic, cultural or social identity.

You share personal data with me if you are my customer or you have contact with me.

Which personal data I collect, store and process.

I collect, store and process the following personal data (via this website, telephone or in person):

  • Your name.
  • Your postal/physical address.
  • Your e-mail address.
  • Your phone number.
  • Your date of birth and your signature (only when signing a Model Release or Property Release agreement).
  • Your bank account number (only if you pay for my services via a bank transaction).
  • The digital or analog photographs or motion pictures (videos) which I have taken of you as part of an assignment, contract or other agreement.
Futhermore, when you use the website or contact me by e-mail, I or third-party subprocessors contracted by me (such as my web hosting provider) may also collect and store technical data and routing information about the device you are using to access the website. This is often technically necessary to ensure that you are able to access the website and use its functions correctly. For example, data which may be collected is your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address or the geographical location of your device. This information is stored separately from other personal data and may be used to measure the traffic to this website and how the visitors interact with it. This data may also be used to combat abuse of my IT infrastructure or fraud.

What I use personal data for.

I can only provide you with my services if I know who you are. This is also required by law (e.g. for tax purposes, among other). Also, if you would like to get in touch with me, I can only respond if the necessary personal data is available to me. This is why I ask for - and process - your personal data.

You are not obligated to provide your personal data to me. You have the right to withhold your personal data. However in this case I may not be able to provide you with my services, execute a contract or enter into other type of agreement, for which I am legally required to obtain your personal data.

I could use your personal data to:

  • Get in touch with you or respond to your message or inquiry via SMS, e-mail, mail or phone.
  • Execute or take steps at your request before entering a contract or another agreement where you may be my client or I am paying you as a model.
  • Comply with legal requirements, such as invoicing, accounting, tax reporting or rules that have to do with my business administration and organization.
  • Protect your vital interests or those of another person. For example, if you find yourself in a medical emergency while we are on a photo or video shoot, and your name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party.
  • When you have agreed to the processing of your personal data for one or more specific purposes.
With your explicit consent, I may use the photographs or motion pictures I have taken of you for promoting my business by displaying them in password protected sample galleries with temporary access, which potential new customers are granted access to. This is done with the sole purpose of displaying the quality and character of my work. All other personal data, such as names, is removed from the photographs or motion pictures, as well as their file names and metadata.
You are free to withdraw your consent to this use at any time. All you have to do is get in touch with me and I will make sure to remove the photographs or motion pictures in question as soon as technically possible.

Sharing of your personal data.

When necessary, I may share your personal information with certain companies which I have entered in an agreement with to provide services on my behalf. Such companies include my web hosting provider, the agencies which distribute my work, as well as my accountant.
These third-parties may use your personal data only for the execution of the contract or agreement which I have with them or to provide certain services on my behalf.

In rare cases, it may happen that I am obligated by law to share your information with third-parties, such as when police, justice officials, supervisory authorities, the Tax and Customs Administration or other authorized institutions submits a request for this data on grounds of the law.

I do not sell or otherwise provide your personal data to other companies for the marketing of their own products or services.

How I take care of your personal data.

I have devoted a great deal of time and resources to the security and reliability of my systems and your personal data.

All of your locally stored personal data is encrypted. Your personal data transmitted via this website is sent through an encrypted SSL connection, as indicated by your browser. The limited personal data stored on the servers of my hosting provider is backed by their compliance with the GDPR, as well as their ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 27001 certified data center.

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, including encryption, is 100% secure. This is why, in spite of the measures I have taken to secure your personal data, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.

How long I store your personal data.

I store your personal data for as long as it is needed to provide you with services, enforce our agreements or as required to fulfill my legal obligations. One such legal obligation is the mandatory retention of financial information for 7 years.

Your rights regarding your personal data.

Your personal data is yours and the GDPR has outlined your rights to it. I strive to make exercising these rights as straightforward, simple and easy as possible. Exercising your rights is free of charge. Should you wish to exercise one or more of your rights, you simply need to get in touch with me via e-mail, telephone, mail or in person.

  • Right of confirmation: you have the right to obtain a confirmation from me, the controller of your personal data, as to whether personal data concerning you is being stored or processed.
  • Right of access: you have the right to receive from me, free of charge, information about your stored personal data and receive a copy of it.
  • Right to rectification: you have the right to rectify any incorrect personal data which I may be storing or processing.
  • Right to erasure ("Right to be forgotten"): you have the right to request that I erase your personal data and cease its processing without undue delay, presuming that the data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed, or that there is no other legal ground for the processing. When your personal data are shared with third-parties, I will take reasonable measures to inform these third-parties that you have requested the erasure, rectification or restriction of processing of your personal data, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. If you have requested it, I will inform you about these third-parties.
  • Right to restriction of processing: you have the right to request a restriction of processing of your personal data under certain conditions.
  • Right of data portability: you have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transmit your data to another controller. This transmission could also be direct from myself to another controller, where technically feasible and when doing so does not negatively affect the rights and freedoms of others.
  • Right to object: you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR.
  • You have the right to withdraw your consent to processing your personal data at any time.
  • You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. I will strive to accommodate your requests, but if for one reason or another we cannot come to an agreement, you have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority.
