Ardoch’s use of content

Ardoch Limited (ABN 48 119 813 188) (“Ardoch”) is a children’s charity providing educational support for children and young people experiencing disadvantage. Our vision is that every child’s potential is realised through full participation in education.  

Ardoch produces publications, and runs fundraising campaigns from time to time, for the purposes of:

  • publicising the programs and services of the organisation independently and in conjunction with other agencies;
  • informing stakeholders of changes and events in Ardoch’s areas of work; and
  • familiarising the public with the role and purpose of Ardoch.

Achieving these purposes involves the production and distribution of promotional material (which may involve reproducing, adapting, publishing and communicating to the public the content) through such media as:

  • external publications, such as newspapers and magazines;
  • both printed and electronic copies of Ardoch’s publications, such as annual reports; program, regional and school reports prepared by Ardoch; funder reports and applications; Ardoch office displays, posters and brochures; recognition awards given by Ardoch; activity booklets; and other publications of a similar nature;
  • television and radio segments or advertisements;
  • Ardoch’s intranet and Internet websites, and profiles/webpages controlled by Ardoch on social media platforms, such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, and blog websites that Ardoch has incorporated into its programs;
  • email or printed correspondence sent by Ardoch to people who may be interested in supporting Ardoch’s charitable work; and
  • occasionally, and only with Ardoch’s prior permission, through publications by Ardoch’s partner organisations (such as corporate sponsors and other charitable foundations), for use by those organisations for similar purposes.

Ardoch will never use any content that depicts, or appears to depict, a demeaning representation of any child or young person.

Before Ardoch reproduces, adapts, publishes, or discloses any letters or blogs written by, or addressed to, your child, Ardoch will:

  • Remove your child’s name (or substitute their real name with a fake name); and
  • Remove any information that could reasonably lead to discerning your child’s identity.

Further details of the way in which Ardoch collects, uses, and discloses content are contained within Ardoch’s Content Permissions Policy, a copy of which is available at your child’s school or on Ardoch’s website, here.


In order to use content for the purposes set out in this content Permission Form and in Ardoch’s content Permissions Policy, Ardoch may require a copyright licence from you, on behalf of your child. 

By signing this form, to the extent that you or your child own copyright in any such content, you grant to Ardoch a worldwide, royalty-free, sub-licensable and irrevocable licence to all of the intellectual property rights in any such content (including the right to reproduce, publish, adapt, communicate to the public, and cause the content to be seen in public).
