PHOTOGRAPH CONSENT FORM

Lámh Dhearg CLG feel it is important to recognise the achievements and successes of our youth and of the club as a whole. One of the ways to do this is to publish photographs and details of achievements in our local press. As a club we would like to use pictures of our youth members in the local press and at times, on the club website.

We take the issue of child safety very seriously and this includes the images of the children in our care. Our duty to our young members is paramount and this form of publicity must be carefully monitored to ensure that it is consistent with our Child Protection Policy and the Data Protection Legislation.

For this reason we have put the following guidelines into place:

  • We ask parental consent for the club to take and use photographs of their children and for permission to use the press and media to promote the youth programme.
  • Photographs and interviews will at all times take place in the presence of a coach.
  • We will only use team photographs and action photographs on our website.
  • Action and individual photographs will only be used, with individual parental consent, prior to the inclusion on the club website or in the local press.

Parents/Guardians will sign the 2018 GAA Data Protection consent form on registering their child as a member of Lámh Dhearg CLG
