Data collection and processing
Lottie Fogden is the controller of data that passes through this website or via email. This data is kept private between myself and a few other carefully selected data processors.
Data which I retain
In order to provide my wedding styling and planning services to you, I take and store all details as well as photographs from your event. This information and photographs are stored on a password protected and GDPR compliant website for as long as this business exists should you lose your photographs or I need to access old supplier information. This service is provided as a legitimate interest.
Should you wish me to remove your information and photographs from my backups after my service to you has ended (the wedding date), I will do so if you provide me with an email confirming your request.
I also collect personal details from yourselves, your wedding party and the other wedding suppliers at your wedding. The details I may ask for are:

Should any member of your wedding party not wish to be included in this, please let me know by email. In addition to this, I also provide you with the ability to opt out of posting photographs from your wedding in the various places.
