Each time event photography and videography is taking place, this will be made clear to attendees within the event sign up information on our website and upon registration at the event if applicable. If you do not wish to be photographed, please stay clear of the camera or make it known to the charity and the photographers present that you do not wish to be photographed. If you are attending an event with children, you will need to complete consent upon registration at the event to opt children in for photography/videography. Again, if you do not wish your children to be photographed, please ensure children stay clear of the camera and make it known to the charity and the photographers present.

Additionally, The Haven will also from time to time invite external media agencies along to events including but not limited to, local news; both TV and print. If you do not consent to being featured in external media photograph or videography, please make it known to the photographer/ videographer and stay clear of the camera at all times.

An individual can at any time request a photo to be taken down from the website and social media sites, please refer to our Take Down Policy for more information.

Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

During the course of any visit to Website, the webpages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device.
