Photo Disclaimer Policy
We at Restoration Community Church, value the way in which photos, videos and other media can help our church fellowship grow and communicate the Gospel. Photos and videos tell our story, as well as providing visitors information and giving them an idea of what to expect when they attend our services or events. They can also highlight the work of those who serve while allowing us to communicate our mission as a church for people who do not attend church via our website and other digital and print media.
Accordingly, photography, videography, live streaming and other recordings may be in progress at Restoration’s Sunday services, ministry activities, classes, programs and other events. Restoration may use the media recorded at these events in materials produced by or for the church, including but not limited to bulletins, posters, brochures, newsletters and other printed and electronic materials, digital media (e.g., Restoration’s website, Facebook or other social media posts).
By participating in Restoration services, ministry activities, classes, programs and events: (i) you consent to be photographed, videotaped or otherwise recorded; (ii) you grant your permission for Restoration to use recordings containing your image, likeness, voice or statements, without compensation, credit or other consideration to you, for Restoration’s promotional, publicity and other purposes, throughout the world and in perpetuity; and (iii) you agree to release, hold harmless and indemnify Restoration from any and all liabilities and claims involving the use of your image, likeness, voice or statements.
While we reserve the right to photograph and record church events, we also strive to ensure that photography and videography are used in a safe and positive way. To ensure the privacy of individuals and children, images will not be identified using full names or personal identifying information without written approval from the photographed subject, parent or legal guardian. We will not knowingly and intentionally post any photo, video or other recording that would be embarrassing, objectionable or hurtful to any clearly identifiable individual in the recording.
Additionally, if you see a photo on a Restoration website or social media page (e.g., Facebook) that includes you or your child and would like it removed, please contact our Community Pastor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note we cannot remove your image from video or live stream messages. Please understand that Restoration has no control over the recording, use and posting of images or other media by non-church staff (e.g., by community members, news outlets) and no ability to remove such media from publications, including internet or social media sites, that are not run by Restoration.
