Photography and use of images

At this event the Raspberry Pi Foundation (hereby referred to as ‘we’) will be taking photographs, audio clips, and video clips of individuals and groups (hereby referred to as “images”). We would like to use these in our marketing and communications materials, in our magazines, and on our website as listed below.

We do this so that we can celebrate the fantastic community that is taking part in Coolest Projects, and to provide useful information to young people and the wider public about our mission and how they can get involved. Images play a huge role in spreading the word about what we do and inspiring others to join in.

We take privacy and personal data extremely seriously. We have specific guidelines on taking and storing images, and these apply to all staff across the Raspberry Pi Foundation, as well as to volunteers and third-party photographers.

We promise to use any personal data images we obtain only to promote and advertise the aims and work of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and its group.

We will be using legitimate interest as the legal basis for processing these images.

We would like to use the images taken at this event across the Raspberry Pi Foundation and its group for the following purposes:

  • Our controlled media, e.g. flyers, posters, magazines, booklets, banners, and websites
  • Our social media channels, which include but are not limited to our blogs, YouTube channels, Facebook accounts, and Twitter accounts
  • Specifically chosen third-party organisations (for example, press and broadcast media seeking to publicise the activities of the Foundation) where the purpose of sharing is to promote the values and mission of the Foundation

If you do not wish to have your or your child’s image taken, you will be able to opt-out on the day by speaking to someone on the registration desk. We will provide you and/or your child with a yellow lanyard. Please wear this lanyard if you do not want your image taken. The photographers at the event are briefed not to take images of anyone wearing a special yellow lanyard.
