Thanks for getting involved!
In order to make this process as easy as possible for you (and us as well!) we are going to first tell you generally how this works, and then show you the 'fine print'.
Essentially, we are using unique codes called tokens to identify you, and connect you to your video, as well as to your consent to the T&Cs. Your full video will be kept in our private section on YouTube, not accessible to the public. We retain the full video because the first thing we ask you to do is read out the token that was issued to you when you agreed to the T&Cs. A copy of your video is edited for length, etc and placed into our relevant YouTube section. This edited version will be embedded into our website. As these videos are all being hosted on YouTube, they must comply with YouTube's T&C's and their community guidelines. We have chosen to structure the project this way to help assure you that your rights are protected.
After reading the release statement and agreeing to the T&Cs, you will receive a unique token (code) that enables you to identify yourself to us, yet allow you to remain anonymous.
This token will be asked for as proof of your having read and agreed to the T&Cs.
Below is a standard video release statement.
Whereas, headandneckcancer.co.uk - Merseyside Regional Head & Neck Cancer Centre (the "Producer") is engaged in a project (the "Video"), and
Whereas, I, the undersigned, have agreed to appear in the Video, and
