Filming and photography privacy notice

What is filming and photography?

Filming and photography are the recordings of digital videos and still images. These are recorded by The Council at various council events. This information may include members of the public and those inside, entering or in the immediate vicinity of the event being filmed.

Video recordings and still images, if they show a recognisable person, are considered personal data and are covered by data protection legislation. Anyone who believes that they have been recorded on film or in photographs is entitled to ask for a copy of the data, subject to exemptions contained in the legislation. They do not have the right of instant access.
