Image Capture

The policy of the university is that the rights of staff, students and visitors to the university, or individuals and groups who are visited by the university’s representatives, should not be jeopardised by any university activity. The university further recognises its responsibilities towards children and young people.

Images may be captured during events organised and hosted by the university using film photography, digital photography, video or other medium and may be used on the website, university prospectus or course brochures, other publicity material (such as internal and external newsletters), exhibition of student work or graduation ceremony brochure and may be provided to the media for publication in local or national newspapers or educational magazines. The university acknowledges its responsibilities in capturing images by photography or other means under the provisions of the following legislation.

The Protection of Children Act 1978: The university recognises that it is a criminal offence to take, permit to be taken, distribute, have in one’s possession or publish indecent photographs (including films and other imagery) of children.

The Human Rights Act 1998: The university recognises an individual’s rights to privacy as protected by this Act.

The Data Protection Act 1998: The university undertakes to inform all those whose images may be recorded (or their parents/guardians if under 18 years of age) of the purposes for which the images may be used by the university.

In this context the university informs all persons taking part in university activities that they may be photographed, filmed, videoed or otherwise captured in image form. Where possible and practical to do so, the university seeks written consent to image capture. Where this is not possible for practical reasons, unless express objections are received, individuals attending an event at the university are deemed to have given their consent by attending or remaining at the event. Any queries or complaints should be raised with the event host in the first instance.
