As a business, it is important that you always request permission to share information or photographs about your client's work. It is also important that you protect your client's information via secure storage with restricted access.
Implement an 'Authority to Disclose/Consent' form from day one to confirm if you have permission or not. If your clients are happy, they will sign your 'Authority to Disclose/Consent' form, and give you consent.
We understand you may want to share your creativity or involvement, but it is very important that you protect your clients information at all times. This can also eliminate future complaints and legal action.
The Data Protection Act controls how personal information is used by organisations, businesses or the government.
In the UK, you can find out more about The Data Protection Act via the following links:
