As part of your visit to the College we store and use your personal details and information about your visit for the purposes of managing and operating the College. We require visitors to our college to sign in at reception and keep a record of visitors for a short period of time. Our visitor records are securely stored and only accessible on a need to know basis (e.g. to look into an incident).
We use CCTV at our buildings for the purposes of crime prevention, security and health and safety and, accordingly, will capture imagery of visitors to the College.
From time to time, HSDC may take images and recordings (both audio and video) of its enrolled students when they are engaging in events and programmes of work in pursuit of their studies. When visiting any HSDC campus or approved home ground, it is possible that (whilst you will not be the intended primary subject or focus) you may be captured in the background of such imagery and recordings. These images and recordings are made solely to assist our students in improving their academic attainment or performance whilst studying with us; no other usage of this material will be made without the explicit further consent of all those individuals visible or audible within any such image or recording.
