    Interesting fall out from the GDPR legislation.

    All pictures of children in school have been taken down, including all the school sports teams, from the past as the rules suggest that to show them requires permission.

    So presumably they would have had to contact every child or parent/guardian to get permission.

    So how does that now work for junior sports clubs? Presumably all clubs will have to destroy their pictures ...consequently, how will this work with pictures the albion have up around the stadium which shows crowd scenes and individuals?

    I couldn't believe the schools actions though and only realised it wa strue when asking various mates who said their schools have done the same.

      I think schools have needed permission about photos for quite some time. Also there are strict rules about parents and cameras.

      There's so many caveats, clearly it's a question of practicality and doing what's reasonably possible to abide by the new law.

      It would be interesting seeing the exact wording on the new legislation, so are there exceptions, what's considered "data" and what reasonable measures are expected? Does it only apply to private companies (what about individuals?), or are schools and other institutions included?

      There certainly is, but they have never been told to remove all photos from the walls. I remember at school, we had sports teams photos going back many years.

      Any data - including photos - to do with under 16s has a special rating within GDPR. Anyone using it has to get explicit permission to use it and explain exactly what they plan to use it for. The problem for many organisations is that they may have obtained permission to use the data originally but either don't still hold evidence of that permission or didn't say what they intended to use it for.

      As a slight aside, the regulation also requires an organisation to say at the point of collection what they plan to use the data for. Therefore even if they ask you for your email address they MUST say at the point of collection why they want it, what they will use it for and who they will share it with.

      And yes - it covers junior sports clubs, scouts and guides, junior football clubs, choirs - EVERY organisation.

      So do the albion have to take down all the pictures of fans around the stadium?

      GDPR has many strengths but if it requires schools to remove unnamed photos of school sports teams from its corridors, etc then the world, well Europe anyway has gone mad.

      I seem to remember something on an Albion ticket, programme, website ? agreeing to let your photos be published (with no other identification).

      Strictly speaking, if they don't mention in the T&Cs of the ticket that photos maybe taken, stored, published and shared then yes, unless the T&Cs explicitly say by buying the ticket you agree ( in in the case of children parents agree ) to having that data stored, published and shared - and to whom that will be.

      As an adopting parent it's something, quite probably irrationally, that is always in the back of my mind.
      Even more so as my children have very distinctive names.
      That in turn is not helped by the fact my daughter is very photogenic as BHASnappy will inadvertently testify too.

      But even I can draw a line, although that said I'm still twitchy about giving permission as now what used to be great historic and 'belonging' photos of years gone by, can become a well meaning on-line montage of named pupils.

      As said I know I'm being irrational, but I'd rather that than "Daddy guess who stopped me for a chat, today?".

      It's long been the case that parents have had to give permission for photos to be used.

      The rugby team I manage asked the question and all but one parent gave permission. I therefore carefully had to make sure his daughter wasn't in any pictures that I put up on the website - it was a bit of a pain. Halfway through the season, he changed his mind and allowed her to be shown.

      As WS says, there are specific guidelines in GDPR and I'm amending our communication with parents of the cricket team I manage. Fortunately, I'm not in charge of GDPR for the rugby club, so that's someone else's problem.
