Privacy Policy

Your privacy is extremely important to me.
This privacy policy explains the types of personal data I, Robert Marcus Klump, may collect about you.

How I collect and process your personal data

I collect and process your personal data in two ways: firstly, if you contact me via email and secondly, if I photograph you. The digital cameras I use (Nikon D700 and Nikon D3200) register date and time but no GPS data.

I do not use any cookies, thus do not observe your navigation throughout the website I also do not use Google Analytics. Subsequently, apart from the photographs I take of you, the only personal information I collect about you is what you provide me with in emails - i.e. your email address, most likely your first and last name and possibly also your postal address and telephone number. Since my preferred form of payment is bank transfer I do not collect your credit card information.

I use the personal information collected from you via emails to arrange for photoshoots and communicate with you regarding the photographs. I do not use these personal data for any other purpose, therefore they are not shared.

Legal grounds for taking and publishing photos of you

I take and publish photographs of you

1. either with your prior explicit or implicit consent; you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time, however please note that despite this withdrawal I might still be legally entitled to publish the photos in question on grounds of my legitimate interests;

2. or because of a contract (to which you must be a Party);

3. or based on my legitimate interests; in this case you have the right to object to the publication of the photographs on grounds relating to your particular situation; I will then no longer publish the photographs unless I can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds (which override your interests, rights and freedoms) or need the photos for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

I only publish photos of children if I have the consent of both the child and its legal representative. I do not take photos of children in their personal sphere.

Where and how long your data is stored

The personal data I receive from you via email is stored by my email provider, Easyname GmbH ( on servers located in Austria. This company is responsible to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk. I will keep these personal data until you ask me to delete them or if I have reason to assume that I will no longer need them.

I store my photographs on external harddrives which are locked away and - with your prior consent - also in the "cloud". To be able to demonstrate that I am the rightful owner of the copyrighted work, i.e. the photographs, I have to store these pictures for an unlimited time period.
