Media Policy and Opt-Out Form
Sharing photos and videos of parishioners and events at Greater Cleggs Chapel Community Missionary Baptist Church is a privilege for us, and we intend to respect and honor it.
In this digital age, the church takes many pictures of baptisms, choir performances and concerts, worship services, mission trips, special presentations, Sunday School, fellowship activities, community outreach projects, and other events. We use these pictures to record, to promote, and to celebrate our church ministries. Pictures are used on bulletin boards, in slide shows and PowerPoint presentations, in printed publications, and on our church web site, social media and other places we see fit.
Printed publications include church newsletters, brochures, invitations, books, newspapers, magazines, etc.
Online sharing includes church newsletters (online version), website, Facebook page and groups, Twitter, Google+ page, YouTube channel and other media we deem appropriate.
Media Use Policy
Photos and videos are almost always of people in public spaces, and/or at public events.
We will not knowingly post anything that would be embarrassing, objectionable or hurtful to anyone in a photo or video.
We do not identify children or youth by name in the photos and videos we use in our online and printed publications.
To ensure the privacy of children and adults, the use of full names or personal identifying information requires verbal approval for adults and written approval for children from the parent or legal guardian.
Media Opt-Out Form
Some persons may choose not to have their photos, or photos of their children, used and we respect their wishes. Therefore, we are providing a Media Opt-Out form for individuals or families who prefer NOT to have photographs of themselves used by the church. If you have no objection to the use of your photos, you do not need to sign or return this form.
**If you chose to opt-out of photos and videos taken at our church, please do not knowingly join photo sessions or shoots at the church or church function.
**Greater Cleggs Chapel Community Missionary Baptist Church is not responsible for photos or videos taken by others outside the media team.
Copies of this form are available in the church office and online.
