Unless you have adjusted your web browser settings (if and where possible) to refuse cookies, or where you have opted out of cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our website or related online services. However, in doing so, you may find that certain functionality or services may be impaired or unavailable to you.

Using Your Information

We have to tell you what our lawful basis is for processing your data, so we are letting you know the reference to the GDPR after each section.

Thursday’s Child was created to discover young and unsigned talent in the worlds of photography, filmmaking and digital content creation and connect this new generation of image makers to clients and agencies keen to source new talent for their creative projects, including original commissions and licensed work.

We use the information we hold about you to give us the ability to showcase your art and connect you with the right people at the agencies and brands we work with.

The legal basis for processing this data is Article 6.1(f): we have a legitimate interest in processing this data to identify which work is yours, to contact you if a third party expresses an interest in working with you.

We also hold your contact information to record your agreement to the terms and conditions of our website.

The legal basis for processing this data is Article 6.1(b): this is necessary for us to meet our contractual obligations with you.

Technical data

We may use the logs from our servers to assist in our firm’s security, as well as to determine visitor behaviour and help us plan our strategy (e.g. such as working out which pages on the site are most popular, or whether particular events have caused an increase in traffic).

The legal basis for processing this data is Article 6.1(c): we have legal and regulatory obligations to protect our clients and their information, also under Article. 6(f): strategy planning is a legitimate thing for a business to do.

Transfers of your data

We do not transfer or process data outside the United Kingdom, European Economic Area or other countries deemed to have inadequate protection of data by the EU. 

Retention periods

We keep this personal data about our artists until such time as you decide to leave the site, after which it is deleted, unless you specifically give us permission to continue holding your data in order to provide services in future.

Third parties

As a general principle, we will not transfer your personal data to third parties without your permission. There are exceptions to this; where a third party is interested in working with you in the future and you had indicated that you would want us to pass your data to them. If we are required by law to provide your data to a third party then we will do so. We may will also transfer your data to a third party if we receive a claim that the content you have uploaded infringes the intellectual property rights or the rights of an individual to privacy.

We also have a small number of companies providing services to us. These are our processors and we have confirmed that they all meet the requirements of the GDPR.

The ability to log on to all these devices is restricted to members of staff, each having their own unique log on credentials.

Landline phone calls are not encrypted.

If you have particular security requirements, please call contact us to discuss how we can support you.

We do not record telephone calls. This may change in the future, but if it does, don’t worry, we will let you know.
