Impresario Theatre SchoolGuide to the Use of Images Online

 

Using Images Safely and Responsibly

 

We all enjoy and treasure images of our family and friends; family events, holidays and events are moments we all like to capture in photos or on video. We now have the exciting dimension of adding our images and videos to our online social networks, such as Facebook, YouTube and many other websites. This means that we can easily share our photos and video with family and friends. Whilst this can be very useful to all of us, we must ensure we protect and safeguard all clients children and staff, including those who do not want to have their images stored online.

 

What should we all think about before posting any images or video online and are there any risks?

 

  • Once posted and shared online any image or video can be copied and will stay online forever.
  • Some children are at risk and MUST NOT have their image put online. Not all members of the community will know who they are.
  • Some people do not want their images online for personal or religious reasons.
  • Some children and staff may have a complex family background which means that sharing their image online can have unforeseen consequences.
  • Therefore, in order to keep all members of the community safe we must all ‘Think Before We Post’ Online.

 

At Impresario Theatre School we are happy for parents and carers to take photos and video of events (as agreed by Impresario Theatre School) for personal use but request that these images are not distributed or put online. This is to protect all members of the community.

 

We thank you for your support!

General Principles

 

Impresario Theatre School is committed to providing fair and understandable privacy policies in relation to personal data.

 

Impresario Theatre School will, at all times, keep data in secure locations (including, but not limited to, encrypted and access restricted files) and not retain data unnecessarily or past the retention length as set out in this policy.

 

In the rare instance a data processor that is not Impresario Theatre School employee is used, such as a third party, the data subject will either be asked for consent pre to supplying the data or be notified and have the right to object to processing.

 

Impresario Theatre School customers and participants supply their personal data when signing up for classes through our registration form either via the website, or via our online portal.

This is either completed by a parent/guardian or the child themselves if they deemed able to do so.

Personal data may also come to us unsolicited via enquiries through our website and to our generic email account.

 

To attend any of Impresario Theatre Schools activities participants/parents/guardians must agree to some processing of their personal data. This is due to Legitimate Interests – GDPR Article 6(1)(f), Legal Obligation GDPR Article 6(1)(c), Contract – Article 6(1)(b) and/or Consent – Article 6(1)(a).

 

Should Impresario Theatre School be unable to process participant’s data, we would be contravening both our Health & Safety and Child Safeguarding policies. We would also be ignoring best practice regarding working with children/vulnerable adults.

 

Our participants must remain safe at all times, therefore information about participants must be collected in order to create registers and accurate student records. This information is also used to provide students with appropriate classes, including dividing students into age groups.

 

Special category data is only collected with the consent of the data subject. Special category data Impresario Theatre School collects includes but is not limited to: Medical/Disability information, Income information, Ethnicity, Gender and Sexuality.

 

As physical activity providers it is essential that this consent is given should a participant have any medical/disability needs. This allows us to incorporate participants safely into classes. It is also used in assessing if we can incorporate participants safely into classes.

 

Income information is only collected in instances where a participant applies to attend our classes at a concessionary price, or on a bursary. This financial support is means tested, and therefore is subject to documented proof. Proofs of entitlement to concession are shredded after the entitlement has been noted.

 

Ethnicity and other sensitive data is to provide information to funding bodies for statistical purposes. This data is always provided to third-parties as quantified data (i.e. cumulative numerical data only with no identifying information relating to any data subject).

 

Personal data and some special category is collected.

NHS Track and trace:

 

Responding to the Coronavirus advice from the Government is an obligation on all schools in England. The development of the NHS ‘Track and Trace’ scheme is a key part of the government plan to manage Coronavirus. As we respond to Government guidance and the wider opening of leisure facility’s/dance schools, the safety and well-being of pupils, staff, visitors and their families is a priority. Plans to manage a safe return are in place, however our responsibility extends beyond the school gates. We hold a lot of data and, as part of our statutory duty, it may be necessary for us to share that data on request by Public Health with NHS Track and Trace workers, so that we play our part in making the programme as effective as possible. It is likely that we will be asked to provide contact details if a case of Coronavirus or a suspected case arises in our school. There is an obligation to support the Government and we will provide details if requested to do so. We will be sharing data on the basis that this is a Public Duty (see below) and that, in the case of any health data, it is necessary for the public interest, as set out.

 

Our first response will be to try and contact individuals directly ourselves to manage information and data sharing. However, in some cases we may be required to provide it to the new service. Please be assured we will keep a record of information that we share. This privacy notice should be read alongside the other GDPR and Data Protection policies and notices in our privacy policy and terms and conditions. NHS Test and Trace and the law on protecting personally identifiable information known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), allows Public Health England to use the personal information collected by NHS Test and Trace. The section of the GDPR that applies is: Article 6(1) (e) ‘‘processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller’ As information about health is a special category of personal information, a further section of the GDPR applies: Article 9(2) (g) processing is necessary for reasons of public interest in the area of public health or ensuring high standards of quality and safety of healthcare’ Public Health England also has special permission from the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to use personally identifiable information without people’s consent where it is in the public interest. This is known as ‘Section 251’ approval and includes the use of the information collected by NHS Test and Trace to help protect the public from Coronavirus. 2 The part of the law that applies here is Section 251 of the National Health Service Act 2006 and the associated Health Service (Control of Patient Information) Regulations 2002.

 

Class Manager:

 

Class Manager (‘we’ or ‘us’ or ‘our’) are committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that we process, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. We have always had a robust and effective data protection program in place which complies with existing law and abides by the data protection principles. However, we recognise our obligations in updating and expanding this program to meet the demands of the GDPR and the UK’s Data Protection Bill.

 

Class Manager are dedicated to safeguarding the personal information under our remit and in developing a data protection regime that is effective, fit for purpose and demonstrates an understanding of, and appreciation for the new Regulation. Our preparation and objectives for GDPR compliance have been summarised in this statement and include the development and implementation of new data protection roles, policies, procedures, controls and measures to ensure maximum and ongoing compliance.
