Hi Jo, my partner and I are not comfortable seeing pictures of our flat, pre-works and post-works, all over the place on the internet. The pictures were taken without us knowing, and placed on the workers' website, Facebook, and a number of other redecoration site without our knowledge, let alone consent. As we have not been treated very well after the final payment, we are also not happy to act as advertising for a service that was at best average... If the law does not provide any protection for us, I suppose we will just have to grin and bear it, but ideally we would like to get them to take the pictures offline.
Thanks for this. Just two things I would like to clarify:
(1) so the fact that the photographs are the interior of my private property is irrelevant? They have pictures of my bathroom, kitchen, hallway... Can one go into anybody's flat, take pictures and post them online? I was hoping not :-(
(2) what about the fact that the pictures misrepresent the work they did and the fact that they claim the design as their own while in fact the ideas are ours, and they just executed the work?
