Images of the Netherlands Cancer Institute

To protect the safety and privacy of our patients, visitors, and staff, we enforce the following rules:

Rules regarding interviews, pictures, and video recordings

General permissions

Patients, visitors, and employees may not be photographed or recorded without their explicit consent.

Hospital permissions

All interested parties can request consent through a certified hospital representative (and not through the producer). If contact concerning consent occurs between patient and producer, we always ask to see the patient’s written consent from patient to producer.

Camera visibility

All cameras used for photography or film will be visible at all times.

Right to rectification

We reserve the right to inspect images, recordings, or articles for any factual errors prior to their release, at our own request or that of the patient.

Image usage rights

All images can only be used in the agreed-upon context. No recordings can be given to, or used by, third parties.

Rescinding images

If the usage of previously recorded images is not ethically sound, we can decide to rescind permission for image usage in consultation with all parties involved.

Institute rights

The institute reserves the legal right to use all articles, pictures, and recordings for its own communication purposes.

Written statement

All (legal) entities looking to make recordings of any kind at our hospital need to agree to our terms in writing. We have a consent form available, which can be requested through the Netherlands Cancer Institute's Public Relations Officers.
