Media Use Policy
Table Covenant Church takes and uses pictures to record, promote, and celebrate our church ministries. Pictures are used in slideshows, printed publications, and on our church website and social media (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, etc.) The following policy outlines how we handle this privilege and the available option to opt out.
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 unless written consent is provided by a parent or legal guardian.
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.
If copyright for a photo or video is held by someone other than Table Covenant Church, we will receive permission to post it and gladly provide credit if desired by the photographer.
We will gladly remove any photo or video upon request from our website or social media. If you see a photo that includes you or your child and would like it removed from the site, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details or notify a member of the pastoral team.
Some individuals or families may choose not to have their photos, or photos of their children, used and we respect their wishes. Please contact us at email@example.com or notify a member of the pastoral team if you would like to opt out. If you have no objection to the use of your photos, you do not need to contact us.
We ask for your respect in return. Unless otherwise indicated, photographs and videos are the property of and are copyrighted by Table Covenant Church and may not be used without permission unless sharing on social media with attribution to Table Covenant Church.
If you have any questions about this policy please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with a member of the pastoral team.
