Photography and Video Policy

Your responsibility

We understand that from time to time you may wish to take a photo or video recording of your child in class. We ask that you do so in a way that shows sensitivity to others whilst recognising their right to privacy.

You must therefore always adhere to the following rules:

Images and recordings must not be taken in such a way as to interfere with the running of the class, cause disruption to other parents or children or cause a distraction to the Class Leader.

Images and recordings must not be taken in such a way as to cause a safety hazard to others in the venue.

The use of tripods or professional recording equipment is not permitted at any time unless you have our express written permission.

You must take care to ensure that only your child’s image is captured.

You must not take photographs and/or video footage of anyone else’s child unless you have prior agreement from the parent/guardian of other children.

If asked to stop filming or taking photographs then you must do so immediately.

If you are concerned that your own child may be being filmed or photographed by another customer without your permission then you have the right to ask them to stop. Please approach the parent yourself if possible but speak to the Class Leader if you continue to have any concerns.

Some venues may have a strict ‘no photography or filming rule’. Where this is the case we will always endeavour to notify you. The policy of the individual venue must be adhered to at all times.

Music Bugs expressly forbids the right to reproduce any part of our lesson content in any form (e.g. on the internet, DVDs, photographs etc.)

Anyone suspected of continually filming or photographing the lessons for any purpose of publication will be asked to stop filming and leave the class.

The Class Leader has the right to view the photographs taken and to delete any photograph that they deem inappropriate.

Music Bugs cannot be held liable for the actions of third parties i.e. non-Music Bugs customers/team members and, therefore, excludes to the fullest extent possible by law, any liability arising from a breach of this section headed ‘Photography and Video Policy’ by any third party.

Anyone found to be in breach of the above terms may be asked to leave the class immediately and no refund will be offered.

The decision of the Music Bugs Class Leader is final.
