This implies, among other things, that you must fully indemnify Curious Kids Photography for any complaints, claims or claims for damages resulting from the processing of such personal data by third parties whose personal data you have provided through the Website.
Because Curious Kids Photography does not collect this type of data directly from others (but collects it indirectly from you), you must obtain permission from these individuals before you share information about them with Curious Kids Photography. If you fail to do so, you must otherwise ensure that there are other reasonable grounds why you have the right to share this information with Curious Kids Photography.
