Images may be captured during events organised and hosted by Treetops using film photography, digital photography, video or other medium and may be used on the website, third party websites that promote Hospice services or fund-raising events, social media websites, other publicity material (such as internal and external newsletters) and in printed literature such as leaflets and magazines. Treetops acknowledges its responsibilities in capturing images by photography or other means under the provisions of the following legislation.

The Protection of Children Act 1978

Treetops 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

Treetops recognises an individual’s rights to privacy as protected by this act.

The General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679)

Treetops 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 Treetops.

In this context, Treetops informs all persons taking part in its activities that they may be photographed, filmed, videoed or otherwise captured in image form. Where possible and practical to do so, Treetops seeks written consent to image capture. Where this is not possible for practical reasons, individuals attending an event 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.

If you require an image to be removed that we are using in our publicity material please contact our Data Protection Office on the main hospice number 0115 949 1264 to request its removal.
