In May 2018, a new European law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became law. The purpose of this law is to give people more control over how organisations use their data.
This web page explains how Lens Digital collects data and what we do with it.
What data is being collected?
Data is collected through our website or other communication channels such as email or phone. Depending on our relationship with you, this could include items such as initial business inquiry through to information regarding an ongoing contractual relationship.
Who is collecting the data?
The data is collected by Lens Digital which is a trading name for Andrew Spiers. We do not use any 3rd parties to collect data on our behalf.
