By paying for swimming lessons at Strokes Swim School Limited you are giving us full permission to take photos of swimmers for advertising and marketing use. We will always double check with parents and guardians verbally before we take photos but if you object you did need to put it in writing to us via email and also advise the photographer on the day.
