Evagoras Mandrides LTD - Privacy Statement
Evagoras Mandrides Photography takes your privacy and the handling of your data seriously. In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation there may be times when you will be asked to specifically opt in to receiving communication from us and to sharing your data.
Any data collected, including, but not limited to, your names, email addresses and mailing address are used solely in the provision of photographic services, are stored securely on a purpose-built database and are never shared with any third parties.
In the case of an initial enquiry we will ask for details including your name(s), email addresses, wedding date and venue(s) in order to provide a quote and an indication of availability. This will be stored for an initial period of 6 months in order to respond to enquiries promptly and to best serve potential clients.
In the case of a confirmed booking, as part of the contract between both parties, we will request certain information, including your mailing address and your signature in addition to the above.
In order to create and deliver photographic services and to deliver the comprehensive coverage seen in my portfolio, it is also necessary that we store images of your likeness, both of yourselves as signatories and, in the case of weddings, of your families and guests, as both jpeg and RAW files on secure storage. These are stored separately from your full names and other data, and the two are never associated.
Evagoras Mandrides Photography may at times use an assistant or a second shooter, under these circumstances they will have access to your name and telephone number for the duration of the event. All paperwork with this Personal Information on will be destroyed after the event has been carried out.

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”.
