1. Legal and Privacy Statements

1.1 Jenks and Co Introduction

This statement includes sections on legislation and law, how data is handled or stored, and who to contact.

1.2 Applicable law

The use of your personal data is controlled by the Data Protection Act 2018. You can see what your rights and our obligations are on this link:

1.3 What data do we collect?

We collect personal data in two ways:

  1. by positive opt-in via contact form(s)
  2. when you wish to do something on our site such as watch a video or upload a clip or image to someone else's video.

In the case of 2), we notify you before performing the action that by performing it you agree to receive our newsletter, and it is open to you to cancel that action if you do not want to opt in by that method. If you do perform it, it will be treated as an opt-in.

The data we collect may include your name, email and phone number and for our Photolab service, other details including address. We may also collect your data for the purpose of registration for a newsletter sign up. Any financial information that you provide e.g. a card transaction is encrypted and data is not stored by our website, for the simple reason that that transaction takes place through our payment provider and we do not see, hold or store the information that you provide.

If you wish to retract your opt-in you can do so on our website or by emailing contact@jenksandco.tv, and we will process the change of data use within 24 hours.

1.4 What about the personal data of people I input as 'Guests' for a Home Movie'

When you create a Home Movie, an essential part of the service is the emailing of invitations to the people ('Guests') you want to take part in the movie. When you enter Guest names, email addresses and phone numbers into our system, you warrant that you have their authority to let us store those details for the purposes of the movie's administration and indemnify us against any losses we may suffer as a result of action by any Guests contesting our right to do that.

When Guests upload their film clips back to our system, our system asks that they read our Terms and Conditions and consent to them before clicking the Upload button. One of the conditions of using the Upload button (stated on the page) is that, by clicking the button, the Guest consents to receive at least one electronic edition of the Jenks&Co Bulletin, and the clicking of the button is therefore treated by us as an opt-in to that Bulletin. On receipt of the Bulletin the Guest can unsubscribe from it. It is also open to Guests to submit their film clips by sending them via a service such as WeTransfer instead of using the Upload button, and if they choose this alternative they will not be treated as having opted in to the Bulletin.

1.5 How do we use personal information?

Information is only used through the course of usual business so we can contact you to provide a service. Your personal information is not used for any other purpose. If you have subscribed to a newsletter, then your information will be used to provide that service/information. You may unsubscribe at any time.

1.6 What legal basis do we have for processing your personal data?

We require your positive consent to receive and process your personal information. We only collect the minimum information to provide the service required and nothing else. You can withdraw and manage your consent for use of your personal information at any time by using the contact information at the bottom of this statement, or via the 'unsubscribe' link on any marketing email we send.

1.7 When do we share personal data?

We only share your personal data with designed email marketing companies like MailChimp or Mailgun. In addition, when you pay for our services online we use a PayPal as a payment provider and if you choose to pay with a credit or debit via PayPal, the information you input is processed by the to validate the transaction, but at no time do we see, hold or store that information. We do not share your personal information with any other company or individual.

1.8 How do we secure personal data?

We also have back ups of any data stored securely. Access to data is also secure. The website uses encryption through a security certificate (SSL) so no data is transmitted without encryption.

1.9 How long do we keep your data for?

We only keep personal information for the duration of our service to you. If you have subscribed for a newsletter, then will annually review our policy on keeping your information and delete it if it is no longer relevant.
