We may ask your Child to display their work on a screen which will be reviewed individually by the instructor or shared with the class. The degree to which we do this depends on the subject matter of the class.   

We may take screen photographs of Online Activities, including your Child’s image and work. The Swedish Institute will inform before a screen photograph is taken so that your Child may choose to participate or not. We may also share photos your Child shares of their work while participating in The Activity. These photographs may be shared with participating families during the design showcase at the conclusion of The Activity, in reports to sponsors and funders, or for documenting The Activity.  

We may video record the Online Activities, including your Child’s image, voice, and work. The Swedish Institute will inform before starting a recording so that your Child may choose to participate or not. Video recordings will be used exclusively by The Swedish Institute and UNICEF Sweden and will not be disseminated publicly.
