Use of Photographic & Video Images of Children/Young People Under the Age of 18 Policy Statement

 

Thirsk & Sowerby Harriers are committed to providing a safe environment for children/young people, under the age of 18, to participate in athletics. Essential to this commitment, is to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to protect children/young people from the inappropriate use of photographic images.

Thirsk & Sowerby Harriers have adopted the following good practice guidelines, issued by UK Athletics;

Publishing Images

  •  Using a consent form, we will ask for permission of young athletes and their carers to take and use their image. If an athlete is named, we will avoid using their photograph.

 

  •  If a photograph is used, we avoid naming the athlete.

 

  •  We will NEVER publish personal details (e-mail Addresses telephone numbers, addresses etc.) of a child/ young person.

 

  •  We will only authorise the use of images of athletes in suitable dress (tracksuits, running kit, i.e. t-shirt/shorts/skirt/ off track clothing)
