OUR PHOTOGRAPHY POLICY
Trilogy Active controls the use of photographic/recording equipment under guidelines to, where reasonably possible, restrict the potential for misuse. In all cases where Trilogy Active has allowed photography, the personal preferences of any subjects take precedence. Trilogy Active takes a zero-tolerance approach to reports of inappropriate photography and will not hesitate to call the police or other relevant authorities to resolve issues.
Any and all photographs taken for non-commercial personal reasons provided they do not break any of the ‘What’s not allowed?’ rules. Customers must respect the preferences of other customers and staff when taking photos.
Photos should only capture the intended subject, the person who has given permission and no others in the background/ within the photo i.e. other participants, spectators, or coaches etc.
Photos should only be taken from the same level as the intended subject and not from balconies, upper/lower floors, spectator areas.
Appropriate photography is permitted in the following areas: the gym, group exercise classes, sports hall, spectator areas, corridors, coffee box, social areas, Berzerk and Lazergeddon
Photography at private birthday parties. (It is for the hirer to seek consent from all parents and subjects.)

This is a sensitive area, which has the potential to upset and offend customers.
Any customer found using photographic equipment in unauthorised areas/activities is politely and sensitively dealt with on the assumption that their motives are entirely innocent and that they are genuinely unaware of the rules. Staff awareness is crucial to the success of these control measures.
When a member of staff identifies a customer with a camera or mobile phone in unauthorised areas/activities, they bring it to the attention of the Duty Manager immediately.
Awareness training is included in the annual training plan and forms part of the induction.
