OUR INFORMATION WORKFLOW
Chip Creative will only use your personal information to complete our agreed contract with you, and in order to accurately compile accounts, auditing and business operations.
Upon project completion, photo and video assets will be archived onto a password protected drive to protect against unauthorized access. As a general rule, we store all photos and videos so that we can update your projects should they require changes after the contract completion. Should this not be required, or should the client object to this, we will ensure that all media is deleted upon completion of the agreed contract. In this situation we would advise a copy of all media be kept with the client incase of additional work at a later period.
We will never sell your information, and will only pass on personal information at the request of the client.
Images of individuals, whether in still photographs or video images, will often be caught by the definition of personal data in the Data Protection Act 1998. In many cases consent from the individuals will need to be obtained in order to process (capture and use) the images fairly and lawfully.
Consent will be obtained from people whose image is the focus of the photograph or film.
When filming in public spaces it is not necessary to get consent from people caught incidentally in the background.
Whilst filming in public spaces, Chip Creative will display notice of intention to film and photograph, individuals who do not wish to be filmed or photographed can subsequently opt out or leave the area.
Should someone wish to withdraw consent having previously agreed to being on film or being photographed, they must do so in writing. Whilst Chip Creative can no longer use the relevant images again, it may not be possible to recall previously created assets in which their image has already appeared.
