Photography Policy

Process:

  • To be able to take photographs of your swimmer/s within this facility you must notify the office one week in advance. 
  • This notifcation will allow US (the office staff) to check with parents of other children if this is ok.
  • The teacher must also be notified and the teacher has the right to say they don’t want any photographs taken that day.
Rules:
  • No video footage, under any circumstance, is to be captured while lessons are being held within the facility.
  • Photographs taken by parents/carers/family friends must contain their child only or their child and the teacher only.
  • No other child is allowed to appear in your photographs unless that parent verbally confirms that is ok at the time of the lesson.
  • Any parent who says they don’t want their child’s image appearing in another photograph has the right to ask to the other parent to delete/destroy any photograph where their child appears.
In a nutshell,
♦ NO VIDEO FOOTAGE AT ALL WITHIN THE FACILITY ♦
♦ ONLY STILL PHOTOGRAPHS OF YOUR CHILD ONLY (NO OTHER CHILDREN) ♦
Use:
  • Photographs are for personal use only.
  • Photographs are not to be used for advertising or media in any way.
  • Photographs can be posted on Facebook and Twitter, however you must notify us by either tagging (FB) or verbally confirming it at the office.  This will allow us to help regulate this policy for the protection of your children and others.
