Photos, Images & Videos from Hostel

How we use it and with whom we share it


During the course of certain events at our hostel/s, we may take your photos, images or video to promote and market the hostel/s and to provide information and updates to existing stakeholders, funders and partners. This will be used in our printed publications and digital channels, including websites and social media.

We will use this on the basis of our legitimate business interest to market and promote the hostels.

Your image may also be used on third party platforms on which we maintain accounts – these could include, but are not limited to: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and Youtube.

All personal information/images that we collect are held securely on our servers and treated as confidential.  These will be kept by the Marketing Department  and we will record where they are used and we may hold your image for up to ten years.

Should you NOT want to be photographed or recorded in connection with any such photograph or recording, or if you see your image in any photo or video that we publish, you must email us to opt-out of such material at [email protected].

If you are aware of the presence of photographers and videographers and you do not wish to be included in any marketing material, you are also responsible for removing yourself from areas in which photography and/or recording is taking place, or notifying the camera operator that you do not consent to your photo or video being taken.  Your failure to do so may result in that individual’s inclusion in a photograph or recording and will be treated as consent for the hostel to utilize that photograph or recording accordingly, until revoked under the Opt-Out clause above.
