8. Photograph's

Whilst the family atmosphere we encourage at classes means that parents, grandparents and friends should feel very comfortable taking photographs or video footage, we would ask that everyone remains sensitive to the feelings of others and always stop filming should they be asked to do so and not replicate any materials unless given permission to do so.

You may opt out of having your child included in photographs taken by our leaders or photographers if you do every effort is made to avoid your child being included by our leaders or photographers, obviously other parents may take photos during classes. You can opt to have your child/you blurred out of any photos, and you can also agree to have photos taken and used by Moo Music Stowmarket, Debenham and Needham Market in promotion of our classes on all media formats. If you do agree to have photos taken, to enable us to ensure accurate records your name, your childs name, your telephone number, your email address and agreement will be held indefinitely unless you contact us to inform us otherwise, if you opt to unsubscribe or do not subscribe to our newsletter this information is held separately to the photo permissions. Just as you do as more photos are taken the older ones naturally get used less so over time your photos may stopped being used but will still be held.

By consenting to Moo Music Stowmarket, Debenham and Needham Market having your and your child's photo taken they may be used to advertise our services, this includes but is not limited to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram who are outside of the EEA however they come under the privacy shield and therefore this is sufficient for GDPR regulations.
