The club often uses images of our paddling in the newsletter, website and for publicity of the sport. As a member of Liverpool Canoe Club you are asked to allow images of yourself or your family to be published to help publicise the sport. You can ask for any photograph or image to be removed or taken down at any time or indeed ask anyone with a camera not to photograph you or your family. We really will not mind.
Members are reminded that when they joined the club they would have read and accepted the warning that “canoeing is an assumed risk activity.” In particular, attention is drawn to paragraph 14.2 from our constitution.

Before becoming a Prospective Member a waiver of any claim against the club must be signed by applicants who must also agree to abide by the club constitution and guidelines.
