Information and consent regarding the collection and editing of my child’s image (in photos and videos)

Information prior to consent:

  1. The CGSMUN Conference intends to receive and maintain commemorative photos and videos of your child from his/her attendance and participation in the CGSMUN Conference. Photos and videos are posted on the CGSMUN Conference website (e.g. photos of committees, group photo, etc.) or on social media.
  2. You are free to withdraw fully or partially your consent to the following at any time, so that your child’s corresponding photos and videos will be deleted. This obligation obviously does not exist for photographs that have been included in publications of the CGSMUN Conference. Moreover, in the case of photos/videos, which display more children, your possible refusal to consent to the appearance of your child or the subsequent withdrawal of your consent, does not imply the non-taking – or respectively the destruction- of the photos/videos, but only the blurring of the image (face and body) of your child so that it is not recognizable.
  3. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of the processing that has previously taken place (publication in an album, posting on the website, etc.).

In the event of the posting of photos/videos of your child on the CGSMUN Conference website, i) it will be without the student’s name and surname, so that the photo/video will not be able to be connected to the personal data in general of the participant and ii) every effort will be made to ensure that our websites, which contain photos/videos in search engines, are not indexed. Furthermore, in the case of withdrawal of consent, we will take reasonable measures to inform the third party responsible for processing the data.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
