Administration - Bulletin Details
ISSUE #:      2009-05-R
 
September 2009
 
TO: BC Hockey Membership
 
FROM: Randy Henderson
Officer at Large

 
SUBJECT: Cameras, Camera Phones, and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) Policy
 


Technology advancements have allowed cell phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs) to carry new functions such as cameras that allow users to secretly photograph objects in front of them while appearing to dial a telephone number. These phones are very popular and widespread.
 
The ability to take photos without others knowing has raised significant concerns for members within our branch. The potential exists for inappropriate/deviant use of camera phones by their operators photographing others undressing and showering in change rooms.
 
Unlike video cameras, cell phones do not require disguises to be brought into such sensitive areas as change rooms, bathrooms, etc.
 
The potential danger of violating an individual’s privacy will not be tolerated by BC Hockey. Therefore, the following policy will take effect immediately:
 
“The use of any form of camera, video camera, camera phone, or personal digital assistant (PDA) is prohibited in any recreational facility change rooms during any BCAHA sanctioned event.”
