Our Media Policy

We reserve the right to publicly distribute and publish recordings of speakers at our events under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license.

Media Policy 

The Irish Global Health Network strive to create a positive environment that respects the privacy of individuals.

That said, our events are public events and we do not wish to discourage participants from taking and sharing photos and video during the event. We also have teams of Key Correspondents present covering events. They may take video, audio recordings and photos and it is important that they have freedom to do this to bring issues in global health to a wider audience.

Also, a number of sessions will be recorded and posted on our YouTube channel for archival purposes, unless otherwise explicitly requested.

Speakers and session recording

When you agree to speak at one of our events, you consent for your talk to be recorded in both audio and video format. The Irish Network for Global Health uses videographers to stream the event on our youtube channel later, which we post to our website and distribute in our monthly newsletters in the months following the event with the aim of amplifying the issues raised, and contributing to the wider discourse on global health in Ireland and internationally.

Your session material, including content and recordings may be used in promotional activities and other related endeavors. This material may also appear on our IGHN web site, social media channels or other digital mediums controlled by ourselves or supporting partners.

As conference organisers, we cannot be all places at once and it is important for us to be able to review all material presented at the conference. For this reason, you may not opt out of having your talk recorded. However, if you wish, you may request that the session video not be published to the public or taken down (hidden) if otherwise already published. We will, to the best of our ability, respect and honour all such requests.

By default, all sessions will archived for future playback on our Irish Global Health Network Youtube channel.

Recording by Attendees

All sessions are recorded by official venue or dedicated A/V staff.

Additionally, you agree to permitting the recording and sharing of sessions by attendees of the event at large. If you do not wish for the audience to audio/video record, you are responsible for politely asking them before you start recording to please not do so.

Staff and attendee photography

When you register to participate in our events, you consent to be photographed by our official conference photographer, and to have those photographs published under a Creative Commons license and possibly used in various promotional material.

Additionally, We encourage attendees to take and share their own photographs. Thus, you also consent to allow attendees to take and share their own photographs, as long as the rules below are followed.

  • Any photography/recording that is legally allowed in public spaces is

allowed at our events.

  • Photography/recording should be treated like other potentially harassing

interpersonal interaction. That is, when one person in the interaction says “stop” or “leave me alone” (etc), the interaction must end. In this case, attendees should not attempt to photograph that individual again.

Additionally, please respect the no-photography indicators worn by attendees.

  • Photography/recording should not be done in such a way as to hide from the

subject that it’s happening.

  • The subject may inspect the photo/recording at any time and, if requested,

the photo/footage/etc must be deleted immediately, upon request.

  • Those who are taking photographs and/or recording must also follow our

general Code of Conduct.

We will do our best to not make or share photos, videos or audio recordings public which could cause harm to the individuals shown/heard on them. If you do find such pictures/videos/audio recordings on one of our sites or accounts, please write to our [email protected] to ask for review.

How to opt-out

If you do not wish images of yourself to be published, you may opt out by contacting us at [email protected] and reasonable efforts will be done to accommodate your request.

If you are a speaker, you may opt out of having your talk being publicly distributed by contacting us.

How to report violations or issues

Please report any violations or issues with recording or photography directly to the front desk at registration, or by contacting us at [email protected]
