Filming and photography often takes place in our events. Our policy on this is anchored on the doctrine of our right to exercise freedom of expression and the right of the public to receive information.
We also document our events to provide a historical archive of our projects and to inspire others to engage in activities that support our mission in communities.
Images and film captured at our events may be published on any of our platforms or those of partner organizations. All participants taking part in our events need to be aware of this and by agreeing to take part in our projects they also agree that their pictures and film may be taken and used as stated.
While it is the right of participants to object to their pictures and film being taken and used as stated above, under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), it is not possible for our photographers and content processors to keep track of those participants who object. We therefore strongly advice participants who desire to object to stay away from our events.
A person attending a Clean Up Kenya event who does not wish to have their image recorded for distribution should make their wishes known by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before the project and notifying the photographer, and/or the event organizers on the day of the project so that they will be directed not to participate to avoid disrupting the spirit of the exercise.
By participating in a Clean Up Kenya event or by failing to notify Clean Up Kenya, as stated above, your desire to not have your photograph or film used by Clean Up Kenya, you are agreeing to release, defend, hold harmless and indemnify Clean Up Kenya from any and all claims involving the use of your picture, film or likeness.
In some cases, it is important to protect an individual’s identity, such as where someone might be employed or where they reside. We will continue to use good judgment in these circumstances.
Images and film that are published undergoes processing and often positively reflects people’s involvement in the projects.
Pictures and film of children are taken and used in accordance with our Child Protection Policy which is anchored in the laws of Kenya.
Volunteers are allowed to take pictures and film using mobile devices such as phones. However anyone seeking to film and photograph professionally using cameras MUST first get permission and sign a Filming Event Documentation Form. Media must produce identification to be allowed to film and photograph.
Finally, we reserve the right(s) to use or cause the usage by our partners any picture(s) or film taken at our events in accordance with this policy.
