How We Process Your Data

We only use this information for discussing the work at hand, or for discussing upcoming projects, and it is not shared with third parties outside of Floodlight Digital Media LTD without direct and explicit consent. In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may use your personal information for:

You can withdraw your consent for marketing communications from us at any time. We will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

We may also from time to time send emails to existing and previous clients, staff, creators, collaborators, performers, and suppliers with important, relevant information about activities at Floodlight Digital Media LTD, such as changes to our policies and procedures.

How We Retain Your Data

We store this type of information locally, and/or online services powered by G Suite (email, calendar and cloud storage) and Wave Accounting. You can read their respective privacy policies below.

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

DATA FROM OUR PROJECTS

What Data We Collect

During our production activities, like video production or photography we will typically collect the following types of personally identifiable information:

This information is collected when an individual appears in front of one of our cameras.

We take great care to ensure that the videos and images we produce do not jeopardise the rights or privacy of individuals who appear within them.

Our Terms of Service for our client services require that our clients have obtained consent from all individuals who appear in the videos and images that we produce. All of our clients receive the opportunity to provide feedback on any videos and images before we provide them with the final output, enabling them to also check that consent has been acquired for all identifiable individuals before the videos and images are published.

We do not publish any videos or images that our clients have not signed off and approved. We only use videos and images which have already been shared publicly by our customers in our promotions for Floodlight Digital Media LTD, such as in our showreel or on our portfolio. If we have captured images of individuals who have not provided consent, or their consent does not cover the intended use of the footage or images we’ve captured, we will not use them and, if instructed to do so by our client, they will be permanently deleted from our systems.

When we create our own original content (short films etc) at Floodlight Digital Media LTD, we require that all performers to agree and sign a release form to obtain consent to capture, store and use their image and/or voice for the project as well as related marketing activities for the project.

How We Process Your Data

We take the videos and images we capture and edit them to meet the needs of the project. We may use some of the videos and images in our own promotions for Floodlight Digital Media LTD.

During the production process each project is given a unique ID number and title to help us identify it. A folder is created on our in-house production server for each project. The videos and images captured by our cameras are added to this folder and we use commercial video and photo editing software to edit them. Once the project is completed we archive it as-is for future reference should a customer request copies of their videos and images, or would like to make modifications to the content we’ve produced for them. We do not apply any further processing to the data we have in our archives.

How We Retain Your Data

We are commissioned by other parties, such as commercial businesses and organisations, to produce videos and images for them to use for their own commercial purposes. Therefore, particularly when we are paid to do this, the resulting videos and images belong to our customers, even if we retain a copy on our systems. Unless instructed directly to remove the data from our systems by the customer, we may choose to retain the videos and images indefinitely. If you wish to have this data removed, you must contact the relevant customer who can then instruct us to remove it from our systems on your behalf. If you do not know how to contact the customer, you may send your request to us, and should we find it to be legitimate, we will forward it to the customer on your behalf for them to review and then instruct us accordingly.

Likewise, if you wish to withdraw consent from your appearance in videos or images produced by Floodlight Digital Media LTD, you must contact the customer of those videos or images for them to instruct us to remove your data.

Videos and images produced by Floodlight Digital Media LTD for internal or promotional purposes will usually be found with Floodlight Digital Media LTD branding included (such as a logo at the end of the video) or on a Floodlight Digital Media LTD property, such as our website or social media profile. If you would like to withdraw consent for us to use videos and images in this way, please contact us with information about where the videos and images appear. We will review your request. If there is no legitimate interest in retaining the data, it will be removed and destroyed.

When we create our own original content (short films etc) at Floodlight Digital Media LTD, we require that all performers to agree and sign a release form to obtain consent to capture, store and use their image and/or voice for the project as well as related marketing activities for the project for an indefinite amount of time.

Note to clients: As editing or modifying existing videos and images is a labour intensive process, we are only able to facilitate deleting entire projects from our systems without incurring cost.
