How Media Education will use your personal data


Media Education is committed to processing personal data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The personal data collected via the submission form will be held securely by Media Education and will only be used for administrative purposes relating to Picturing Health.

You have the right to request to see a copy of the data Media Education holds about you and to request corrections or deletions. You can ask Media Education to stop using your submitted photograph, title and description at any time, in which case it will not be used in future publications but may continue to appear in publications already in circulation.

You have the right to lodge a complaint against Media Education regarding data protection issues with the
Information Commissioner’s Office.
