Middleton Cricket Club recognizes the need to ensure the welfare and safety of all Young People in Cricket and wishes to ensure that photography or video footage of children during cricket training or matches is done so appropriately. As part of this commitment we will not permit photographs, video images or other images of Young People to be taken or used without the consent of the Parent/Guardian and the Young Player. Middleton Cricket Club follow the guidance issued in ‘Safe Hands – Welfare of Young People in Cricket’ on the use of images of Young People which is available at http://www.ecb.co.uk/safehands. Middleton Cricket Club will take steps to ensure that these images are used solely for the purpose they are intended, which is the promotion and celebration of cricketing activities.
If photographs e.g. team or action shots, are submitted to the Press or published on our website or in our handbook individuals will not ordinarily be identified. Where a child or young person is identified it will only be with the explicit consent of parents.
Please note: Middleton Cricket Club understands that there are circumstances under which a parent would not wish their child to be photographed. Whilst Middleton Cricket Club will do all that it can to ensure the safety of children during cricket activities, it is the responsibility of the parent concerned to ensure that if their child is not to be photographed and partakes in an activity and is by the nature of the activity inadvertently photographed or filmed, Middleton Cricket Club cannot be held responsible.
