Photographs on the Web

Aqua Swim School seeks to treat photographs on this web site as personal data when an individual is clearly identifiable. The Swim School’s scrutiny of such images will be based upon how easily identifiable an individual is from the photograph as well as from related textual content. In keeping with advice, consent includes posing for a photograph when such potential use is known or reasonably expected, as well as verbal or written consent at the time or subsequently.

The Aqua Swim School will make reasonable efforts to ensure that such consent has been obtained before use and where this is not possible will avoid use where it may reasonably be considered likely to cause the data subject damage or distress.

The Swim School will also respond promptly to any subsequent request to remove a photograph from the web site by an individual who is clearly identifiable in that image. Such a request should be made to the webmaster (Aidan Smith) of this site by going to Aqua Swim on Saturday.

Where an individual who does not wish to give consent is a member of a larger group they should be allowed to leave the group while the photograph is taken. In the case of pictures provided to the Aqua Swim School by other sources, the Swim School will confirm with the provider of the images that any clearly identifiable individual has consented to such distribution.

Information Logged through Normal Web Site Usage

As part of the normal process of serving pages, and in the same fashion as almost all web sites, the computer which hosts the Swim School’s site logs all page and information requests (also known as hits).

Amongst the information collected in these logs is the IP address of the computer requesting the information. In some cases, when combined with other details, this may allow for the identification of a specific user’s computer.

In its general activities the Aqua Swim School only employs these logs to determine general information about the use of the web site, and not to determine information about specific users.
