When you take part in one of our courses, we may take photos or make videos of the people taking part, as well as the equipment and food we are working with, for use on our website and social media or in our books, literature or advertising.
Even if just your foot is in an image we photograph, record or film, we are legally required to have you sign a Release Form to confirm that the material created is the property of The Sourdough School and The Sourdough Club, and that you agree to being photographed, recorded and or filmed. We also use this form to ask you to confirm that you are happy to be mentioned in Vanessa’s doctorate.
We treat your privacy as one of our utmost priorities; we will always give you plenty of notice and time to move away if you do not want to be photographed or filmed.
Please read the information below as you will be asked to sign in agreement if you visit us.
It is legally worded but very straightforward. However, if there is anything you are not comfortable with, please let us know.
Also – we have a policy of not allowing mobile phones or cameras in The School when teaching classes. This is so you will not be photographed or filmed by another course member. If any member of the course wishes to take photos or videos, they must seek the prior approval of the course leader and the express permission of any other course member before beginning recording or photographing.
