    Under Data Protection law, you have a right not to have your personal data collected, published or otherwise processed without your consent. This includes your image, and therefore covers photographs. There is an exemption to the Data Protection Acts for the purposes of art or journalism. If the images are used to promote or advertise without your consent then is against data protection. If the images are used for sexual gratification or abuse such as revenge porn then the law gets complicated. You should seek legal advice with an appropriate lawyer, and try to get free consultation before you make a decision.
