This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customise our photo booth service to make your experience easier and quicker.

The information we collect from your booking form is necessary to run your event smoothly. This information is treated with strict confidentiality and is only shared with employees who will work at the event (and need this information to run your hire).

Social buttons. On many of the pages of the site you will see ‘social buttons’. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. There are buttons for: Twitter, Google +1, Facebook ‘Like’, and Instagram. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of Flashtag Booths. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on our website. So if you click on any of these buttons, these sites may be registering that action and may use that information.

You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

Email and Email tracking. E-mails that we send to you have no tracking in at all and are sent solely for the purpose of providing you further information about our services and supporting you in booking a photo booth after you have sent us an initial enquiry.

2. Will the data be shared with any third parties?


At Flashtag Booths, we use your data solely for the purpose of a smooth, efficient, and personalised photo booth service. We do not pass on your data to third parties.

3. How will the information be used and how long will the data be stored for?

Any information provided will be used solely for the purpose of a smooth, efficient, and personalised photo booth service. Your data, in terms of photographs taken at events will be used for legitimate interests, and will only be used for marketing/advertising by ourselves (Flashtag Booths) by consenting so in the tick-box of our booking form.

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract (booking) or the initiation of a contract (the booking).

Photographs taken during an event will be printed immediately after use of the photo booth, for guests use, unless requested otherwise. If you have requested a ‘Plus Package’ or guest book, a copy of images taken will also be stuck in this book for guest to write a memorable message by. This guest book is then kept by yourselves at the evening of the event as a memoir. Photos and data taken are stored on a password protected Flashtag Booths company laptop and saved internally. The photo gallery will then only be sent to the persons of which the contract/booking was made.
Event photos (and booking forms) will be deleted after three months unless used for marketing or promotional purposes – as agreed in when signing the terms and conditions at the time of booking.
Your agreement to the terms and conditions given to you at the time of booking provides the lawful basis for processing the above data.


You have the right for us to delete/remove any data that we may hold after a booking (i.e. images taken during use of our photo booth) at any time by getting into contact with one of Flashtag Booths employees.

d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten) 

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:

An employee of Flashtag Booths shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required.

The employee of the Flashtag Booths will arrange the restriction of the processing.
