We live in an age in which digital technology has vastly increased the use of photography, and there has been publicity surrounding concern about the risk of a child or young person being identified by a photograph in the local press or via social media. Kent FA takes the view that the risk of a child being identified by a stranger is small and that, providing reasonable steps are in place in terms of appropriateness of the photography and to protect the full name and contact details of children, photography will be permitted.
Kent FA is mindful of the fact for some families; there may
be reasons why a child’s identification is a matter of particular anxiety. If you have special circumstances, either now or at any time in the future, that would affect or change your consent on this issue please contact Kent FA.
You should discuss the matter of photographs with your child, and agree with them about the categories of consent. We invite you to use this form to explore their feelings about being photographed/filmed. Kent FA will not use the personal details or full names (which means first name and surname) of any child or young person in a photographic image on film, website, or in County FA printed publications. If Kent FA uses photographs of individuals, the name of that child or young person will not
appear in the accompanying text or photo caption, unless we have your agreement.
Only images of children or young people who are suitably dressed will be used, to reduce the risk of such images being used inappropriately. By signing this consent form you will be giving permission to Kent FA to use photographs and film of your child involved in football activities. These images may be used in any of the following ways;
- Printed Kent FA, Eighth Wonder and partners publications
- Kent FA, Eighth Wonder and partners websites,
- Kent FA, Eighth Wonder and partners Facebook page, Instagram feed, Twitter feed, YouTube, etc (as appropriate)
- Kent FA, Eighth Wonder and partners video, CD rom or DVD for training or promotional purposes
- Within the local or national media
