Privacy policy on-site

Photography and filming on-site

Photography and filming will take place throughout Shell Eco-marathon Asia. A selection of photos and videos may be used for further communication purposes, including, but not limited to, use on websites and social media channels.

Control on the number of visitors

In the interest of Public Order and Safety, the Organisers of Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2016 reserve the right to regulate and control the number of people inside secluded area or those sheltered by roofs or tents to a level where people’s comfort, safety and security may be preserved and maintained throughout the duration of the event. Thus Shell may prevent people, even those with confirmed tickets, from entering said areas once the crowd inside reaches a critical level where their comfort, safety and security may be already compromised.
