We believe that using photos of our attendees of all ages in our print and web publications fosters a greater sense of community. Photography and video recordings from Bethel Reformed Church Vacation Bible School helps to display the vibrancy and joy of our Christian community. We use photos to enhance the quality of our print materials, newsletters, the bethelbrandon.org website, social media, publicity, and fundraising. We also use photos to further our efforts in education and outreach. As a participant in Bethel Reformed Church events, you have a right to opt out of inclusion in photographs/media, but unless a “Media Images Opt-Out Release” is signed and on file at the Bethel Reformed Church (BRC) office with a reference image of the person opting out, participation in BRC activities implies permission for the use of images taken at those events.
BRC will never post images with identifying information such as name, email address, address, or family members’ names. No special compensation is provided to any individual included in images taken at BRC events. BRC does not contact individuals to notify them if or when their images is used by BRC.
Individuals who have submitted a completed “Media Images Opt-Out Release” form should endeavor to alert photographers should they see someone in their vicinity taking pictures, so that they are not accidentally captured in crowd shots.
This opt-out form does not apply to photos that might be taken and used by others who attend BRC events.
