If you are participating in an event we are managing or delivering, we may take images or audio-visual recordings which identify you.
You can always decline to give Kincora any personal information we request, but that may mean we cannot communicate with you or respond to your queries; and in the case of our events, it may limit your ability to participate. If you have any concerns about personal information we have requested, please let us know.
