Policy on photography, filming and audio-recording

The policy is intended to protect the anonymity and privacy of those persons who do not want to be photographed, filmed or audio-recorded, and to ensure free discussion at meetings.

  1. Photography, filming and audio recording is permitted outside the CCR sessions (e.g. in the coffee area or lobbies, or before or after a workshop session) ONLY after explaining the purpose and obtaining permission of each person photographed, filmed or recorded.
  2. Photography, filming and audio recording is not permitted during CCR sessions (workshops, plenaries, working group meetings) except for people acting for CCR, or for a purpose specifically approved by CCR in advance;

in which case such persons will:

  • abide by instructions regarding announcing the purpose of the recording at the beginning of the session,
  • provide opportunities for people to discreetly request exclusion from recording, and
  • erase any recording on request.
