Social Media & FaceBook Protocols approved by the Archery England AGM on 24th November 2018
In respect of the privacy notice concern was also raised regarding photos at events being posted to Social Media sites without the subject knowing of this action. Whilst policies and procedures exist; the high incidence of taking photos with camera phones has become difficult to ‘police’ such policies. In consideration of this and publicity through social media and the web-site for selected team members it was agreed that a statement should form part of the Team Member Code of Conduct and be added to the criteria and FAQs on the web-site:
