Services before making any use of the photographs/films/quotations or other personal information not
specifically covered by the individual's consent on this form.
The collection and use of photographs, films or quotations by the University also potentially raises copyright
issues that must be considered. Copyright is owned by the University if the collection of photographs/
films/quotations is undertaken by a University staff member in the course of their employment, however if you
have any queries in relation to Copyright, please contact the University copyright office.
If the photographs/films/quotations are to be taken/collected by someone else, or if the photographs already
