Keeping your data safe
So. Who are we?
Airview Productions is an independent video production company based in London carrying out video and photography services across the world. We produce videos and imagery for clients to make photography and video content for corporate, crowdfunding, online and social media purposes and other similar areas.
This policy applies to any personal information handled by Airview Productions with airviewproductions.co.uk produced and operated by us.
Who’s in control?
Airview Productions asks for contributors and participants consent for all services we provide. When working with contributors and participants to produce imagery and video content we ask for consent to be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous. Each individual must provide “clear affirmative action” that they consent to the video content, materials being created for the specific purpose. Airview Productions will expressly obtain active consent from an individual that the footage is to be used for each specific purpose. Further, at the time of obtaining consent, Airview Productions will explain to individuals that they are able to withdraw consent at any time but also that this would not render processing on the basis of consent prior to withdrawal to be unlawful. Individuals must also be able to easily and freely withdraw consent at any time and use their right to be forgotten. If consent is withdrawn, Airview Productions will be able to provide a legitimate interest statement for its own requirements for Airview Productions led projects. Airview Productions is being paid to create imagery and video content for another party/client/ business and we ask that clients offer a legitimate interest statement to Airview Productions on request. In this respect, the legitimate interest is held by our client is to offer transparency and action to participants and contributors associated with the imagery and video content we make for this purpose. Clients will offer Airview Productions an indemnity for this purpose.
Legitimate Interest for Businesses
When providing services to a client, Airview Productions will ask that they require the necessary consent and offer all and every needed indemnity and protection to Airview Productions in respect to all contributors, participants and subjects, in the instance where consent is subsequently withdrawn from the individual.
The client/commissioner of Airview Productions will have lawful ground for processing of a business having a “legitimate interest” in the imagery and video content even when individuals might withdraw their consent. Airview Productions will rely on the onus for the legitimate interest to be solely with the business/client/commissioner that employs, instructs or partners with Airview Productions. For all purposes aforementioned, Airview Productions will have a legitimate interest in the video content created as they have been expressly commissioned to create this content for the business or client.
On commission of work, Airview Productions will confirm that the business/client/commissioner commissioning Airview Productions for any and all of its services have a “legitimate interest” in continuing to process personal data.
For Airview Productions led projects and work for any and all of its services have a “legitimate interest” in continuing to process personal data where:
i) There is a real business interest being pursued in continuing to process the personal data;
ii) The processing is absolutely necessary in order for the business to pursue that interest (i.e. the interest cannot be pursued in another way which is proportionate); and
iii) The processing is balanced against the impact such processing will have on the fundamental rights and freedoms of data subjects.
