Chichester Hash House Harriers Photographic Policy
Chichester Hash House Harriers recognise the need to ensure the welfare and safety of
all young people and vulnerable adults attending its events.
As part of our commitment to ensure the safety of young people we will not permit
photographs, video or other images including those taken via mobile phones of young people
to be taken or used without the consent of the parents/carers and the young person.
Chichester Hash House Harriers will follow the England running guidance for the use
of images of young people and will take all steps to ensure these images are used solely for
the purposes they are intended which is the promotion and celebration of the activities of
Chichester Hash House Harriers.
If you become aware that these images are being used inappropriately you should inform a Joint Master - see http://www.chihhh.org.uk/contacts.php.
Best Practice Guidelines
Chichester Hash House Harriers recognise that publicity and pictures of young people enjoying
running are essential to promote the sport and a healthy lifestyle. To facilitate this it is therefore
essential that the following principles and rules should be observed.
Ensure parents/guardian/young person have granted their consent for the taking and
publication of photographic images.
All young people must be appropriately dressed for the activity taking place.
Photography or recording should focus on the activity rather than a particular young person
and personal details which might make a young person vulnerable, such as their exact
address, must never be revealed.
Anyone taking photographs or recording at any running event must have a valid reason for
doing so and seek the permission of the organisers/persons in charge.
Anyone taking photographs or recording should make themselves known to the event
organisers/persons in charge and be able to identify themselves if requested during the course
of the event.
All concerns regarding inappropriate or intrusive photography should be reported in
confidence to a Joint Master - see http://www.chihhh.org.uk/contacts.php.
