It also sets out the rights you have regarding any of the personal data held by Devonia Media. From time to time we may update this Notice. Any updates will be posted on our website.
What is personal data?
Personal data is any information relating directly or indirectly to a living individual. This information includes things such as a name, an identification number, location data, online identifier or factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that individual.
What personal data do we process?
We only collect personal data for specific, clear and legitimate purposes and we will not process it for purposes that differ from those we have notified you about. We will limit our use of your personal data to what is needed, relevant to, and necessary for the purposes we have identified. Access to your personal data is given only to those who need to process it for the purposes identified. We will ensure that we keep your personal data accurate and up to date and will not store it for longer than is necessary.

We also collect information indirectly when filming; for example we may film personally identifiable characteristics of individuals at identifiable locations, such as faces, or vehicle number plates.
Why do we process personal data?
Our processing of your personal data is necessary for us to provide services to you, maintain our relationship with you and to fulfil our legal obligations. We use personal data for the following reasons:
How do we process your personal data?
The GDPR gives companies several lawful reasons to collect and process personal data.
Below are the lawful reasons we rely upon and the types of processing activities that relate to each:
Performance of a Contract: In some circumstances it is necessary to process your personal data in order to fulfil our contractual obligations with you. Without this information we would not be able to provide a service to you. For example, contacting you as a new or existing client.
Legal Obligation: In some circumstances it is necessary to process your personal data so we can comply with our legal obligations. Without this information we would not be able to fulfil our legal obligations to you, the authorities, or regulatory and statutory bodies. For example:
Legitimate Interest: There are situations where processing your personal data is necessary to pursue our legitimate interests as a business. We must balance our interests as a business with yours as an individual, so that our legitimate interests do not override your interests, rights or freedoms. For example:
Filming in Public Areas
Where personally identifiable information is collected in pictures or video filmed in public areas, where no specific permission is needed to record the public, we are happy to remove personally
identifiable information upon request, or will do so automatically if we have an indication that it would be in the subject’s interests to do so.
Consent: In some situations, we will ask you for your consent to collect and process your personal data, for example:
Vital Interests: Occasionally, we may need to process your personal data when it is necessary to protect your life, for example, in an emergency where you cannot give consent.
Who we share your personal data with
In order to provide you with a service and to fulfil our business objectives and obligations, there are many situations where it is necessary to share your personal data with third parties. In such circumstances we will share your data with the following categories of organisations/individuals:
How long will we keep your personal data?
We will keep your personal data for a minimum of 5 years or as long as necessary and for the purpose for which it was collected. When it is no longer necessary to keep your personal data or Devonia Media ceases to exist, we will delete it.
Security and Sharing your personal data outside the 'EEA'
We ensure that appropriate security measures are in place when handling your personal data. Occasionally, we may share your data with third party suppliers outside of the European Economic Area (‘EEA’), for example we use Hubspot which has servers in the USA. In such circumstances, we ensure that your personal data will receive the same protection as if it were being shared within the EEA by ensuring that our contracts contain a requirement for suppliers to adhere to the same strict data privacy requirements as us.
Your data rights
You have the following rights over your personal data:
The right to request:
If you make such a request, we will respond to it within one month of your request. In some circumstances we may require an extension to this time period and will notify you of the reasons for
this. If we refuse your request, we will inform you of the reason(s) and of your right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (see details below) within one month of your request.
You also have the following rights:
The right to withdraw your consent:
Where you have given consent for us to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please contact us at the email or phone number below. Please note that once processed video material or imagery has been passed onto clients or entered the public domain, its distribution and use may be outside our control.
You have the right to object to us processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. If you would like to stop receiving our marketing communications, please contact us at the email or phone number below.
In order to protect confidentiality, we may ask you to verify your identity before responding to any request made under this privacy notice. If a third party makes a request on your behalf, we require proof that you have given your permission for them to act on your behalf.

Devonia Media follows the informal Code of Practice relating to drones as suggested by the Information Commisioner's Office, and also the relevant sections of the CCTV Code of Practice as it relates to UAS (Unmanned Aerial Surveillance vehicles, or drones.)
2-way communications between our drones and controllers is via encrypted connections. Cards within drones are unable to be encrypted and hence data could be recovered in the event of loss of the drone; this is unavoidable yet improbable, as in the event of loss of a drone, it would likely either be destroyed or recovered immediately.
Once data is removed from drone cards it is stored and backed up on encrypted computer systems, and the data is wiped from cards.
Prior to edited drone footage being made publicly available, sensitive information (such as personally identifiable information) is removed where deemed necessary (see main GDPR statement above for passages relevant to imagery captured in public spaces, and private spaces).
Audio is not captured by our drones.
