Media images and recordings bring life to and help tell the story of St. Michael’s vibrant faith community, enhance the quality of the information we provide to our members and give visitors an idea of what to expect when they attend our church. We would like to share media items recorded at our various ministry activities, events and programs in church-produced materials, including, but not limited to, bulletins, posters, brochures, newsletters and other printed materials, and on the church website and social media pages.
Accordingly, participation in church activities implies permission for publication of any media recorded, unless a signed Media Opt-Out Form is on file with the church office. This applies to anyone who attends our church except children: Any child without the Image Permissions and Use form on file will not have their image used in any publicity. While we reserve the right to photograph and record church events, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will strive to adhere to the following guidelines:
- Any adult may complete the Media Opt-Out Form if they do not wish for media items in which they or their minor children are prominently featured to be used in St. Michael's publications.
- No identifying information will accompany photos, including names, addresses, email addresses, family members’ names, or schools.
- Anyone may request a particular media item which prominently features them or their minor children be removed from use by submitting a request to the church office.
- If you submit images to be used by St. Michael's, you are giving the church the right to use the photos. These images must not contain any copyrighted material without permission.
Parents, for a photo of your child to be used, we need your permission. Please fill out the Media Release for Minors.
If you don’t want your image to be used, please submit the Media Opt-Out Form.
