Photography and videography
There will be a TechxFest photographer and videographer on site capturing the event and speaking to willing pupils about their experiences. If any pupils do not wish to have their photo taken or asked to share their experiences about the event on camera, please ask them to wear a lanyard (available from the coach welcome team) and we will ensure that no images or videos are published with these individuals.
In line with Article 8 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), any pupil over the age of 13 will be asked to sign an individual consent form, if they are willing to speak on camera about their experiences on the day.
