Joy to the World Photo Policy

Stony Stratford Community Church may take photos and videos at Joy to the World. Images containing identifiable children will only be used in the Joy to the World sessions and the church service on Sunday 16th December 2018. Where children are not identifiable, images may be used on our website and in printed material to promote the church and its work.

Images will only be used where consent is given by a parent or guardian with parental responsibility for a child. Whilst we will endeavour not to include children in any photographs/videos where consent has not been given, any images found to include children where this is the case will be deleted or edited to exclude them before the image is used.

Images will only be taken by a designated photographer who may use their own device and process using their computer. All images will then be returned to us on suitable media which will be kept in a locked safe. No off-site copies will be kept after this.

Images will be stored for a maximum of 12 months, unless used in our publicity in which case up to 3 years. After this all copies will be destroyed/deleted.

If you are concerned about the way images are being handled please speak to our Data Protection Officer who can be contacted by ringing 01908 567168 or emailing
