Photography Policy

As a group we would like to use photos or videos taken during our activities to promote Scouting in Liss, Petersfield District & nationally to celebrate the endeavours and successes of group members.
On the Group website we hope to have many opportunities to use photographs of section activities to enhance the content. It is Scout Association best practise to have permission from Beaver, Cub and Scout parents/guardians before publication of media taken of your son(s)/daughter(s), whilst undertaking scouting activities. We would request that you consider allowing us to use media content featuring your child, though we do understand that for personal or child protection reasons you may not wish you child to appear in published pictures. The Permission to photograph form can be found here.
Media taken and controlled by the 1st Liss Scout Group will only be published on our own website, newsletter or posted on our noticeboards, occasionally we may forward photographs to other scouting media outlets or to the local press. Where we publish media we will take care to ensure that full names are not included in the related article or caption, e.g we will normally use captions like “The Beavers visiting Petersfield Fire Station” etc. We follow the following guidelines for publication:

1st Liss Scout Group Photographic Guidelines

  • We never to publish personal details with any photo image that is used (full name, address, email, etc.)
  • We will endeavour to remove identifying metadata from graphics (e.g. location, comments etc)
  • The content of all picture will be considered for good taste before publication
  • We will only use images to publicise Scouting related events.
  • If we inadvertently publish material without parental permission on our website we will remove it as quickly as possible after it is brought to our attention. (Please use the contact form to inform the webmaster.)

Social Media

The group does not have any control over the use of members social media sites (Facebook, Fliker Instagram, Twitter etc ) that may be used by parents or youth members; individuals are responsible for the content of their own social media account. We would therefore request that you are mindful of any content that you or your child may post to this type of site and that any pictures that are set in a scouting context should not bring the Group or movement into disrepute or put young people at risk. We would also ask that you respect the wishes of other parents if they ask for their child’s picture to removed.
