Media Opt Out Option

Media Policy

Media images and recordings bring life to and help tell the story of High Country UCC’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, and other materials, audio/visual presentations and on the church website.

Accordingly, participation in church activities implies permission for publication of any media recorded, unless a signed “Media Images Opt-Out Form” is on file with the church office. 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 Images Opt-Out Form, if they do not wish for media items in which they, or the minor children for whom they are the parent/legal guardian, are prominently featured to be used in publications produced by High Country UCC.
  • 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. (All requests will be documented.)

Special consideration for media images of minors:

  • No identifying information will accompany photos, including names, addresses, email addresses, family members’ names, or schools. If a child is wearing a nametag in a photo, the name will be removed using image editing software.
  • Images of individual minors will not be used to advertise future events without parental consent. (Large-group photos in which individual children cannot be identified are permissible.)

Media Images Opt-Out Form:

Submit the form below only if you do not want media images or recordings of you or your minor children used in High Country UCC publications.
