The College acknowledges its responsibilities in capturing images by photography or other means under the provisions of the following legislation.

Where possible and practical to do so, the College seeks written consent to image capture. Where this is not possible for practical reasons, unless express objections are received, individuals attending an event at the College 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.
