Marc Osborne Photography | Privacy Policy

Marc Osborne Photography Privacy Policy – 25/05/2018 Version 1


In very basic terms I totally respect your personal information and will only ask you for what information I really need from you. I will look after your information in the same way I would want my information looking after (Securely). I will only share your information with others where their help is needed to deliver the service that you have booked from me (For example photo printing services that may need a name and address for postage). Please rest assured that I will never share your information in any other circumstances – nor will I sell this information on elsewhere. The following is the non-basic version! (You may want to grab a cuppa!)




Marc Osborne Photography takes your privacy very seriously. This privacy policy has been prepared in line with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which promotes fairness and transparency for all individuals in respect of their personal data. This privacy policy applies to all data we process and by using Marc Osborne Photography you consent to our collection and our use of such data.

We will also record a date of birth for all persons we individually photograph under the age of 13 and require the parent or a legal guardian to consent to photography. This does not apply to weddings or events, but would apply for individual photo shoots for example.
