The ICO has advised that GDPR does not apply to images of people taken in public places by amateur photographers. Although not a GDPR issue, we offer general advice below –
You do not usually have a legal right to object to being photographed in a public place. It is common courtesy for photographers to seek permission, however, you are not obliged to consent to being photographed.
From the date of issue of this document, if we have used an image or video of you on our website, in Womenclimb social media, or in any printed Womenclimb publications, from the date of issue of this document, we will only do so where the photographer assures us that you have consented. If you wish for any image or video of you to be removed from our website, or social media channels, you must notify both us and the photographer, in writing. On such notification, we will use reasonable endeavours to remove such images from our website or Womenclimb social media, but it is impractical for us to remove images of individuals from Womenclimb printed publications, and we are not able to offer this option. Note that we can only help where your image appears in Womenclimb media. Any issues you have with any other use of your image by the photographer, are between you and the photographer.
We may retain your data for insurance purposes for a period of up to 6 years.
