Photography & Filming
PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILMING POLICY
Photography and filming will take place at all StART events. By taking and publishing photographs, StART is exercising its rights to freedom of expression, the rights of the public to receive information, and creating and archiving a historical record of StART events by taking and retaining photographs which also have an indefinite period of promotional value.
Video and photography usage
Images and video footage captured at StART events may be published on the company’s promotional channels, including websites, social media feeds, printed collateral and advertising.
The images that we select for publication or sharing will positively reflect our visitor’s attendance at a StART event.
All events include notices at the entrance which informs visitors that photography and filming will be taking place for the duration of the event.
Right to Object
Importantly, under General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), individuals have the right to object to their images being processed. Due to StART events taking place in public settings, it is not always possible for individuals to opt in or out of being photographed or filmed at an event. Where someone does object then StART will make all reasonable attempts to avoid photographing that individual, and all identified images will be deleted on request at the earliest possible opportunity, this is unless there appears to be a reason why the image should be retained under data protection or other laws or duties.
If you have any objections for the processing of images captured by StART photographers, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can formally record the objection before deleting the relevant images.
