Photo Opt Out Policy
Rappahannock Community College (RCC) uses photographs, photographic images, names, and audio and video recordings of employees and students for general publicity in publications, public relations, promotions, publicity, and advertising. Any employees or students (or the parents or guardians of such persons, if under age 18) who do NOT want to be photographed or recorded, or to have their names, voices, or biographical materials used in connection with any such recording, must complete a Photo Opt Out Release form and return it to the Dean of Support Services (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Unless a fully executed Photo Opt Out Release form is on file, your image and/or likeness may at any time be captured by still photography, videography, or other photographic or electronic means. The college reserves the right to use any such image, photograph, video, or the like for any college-related purpose, including but not limited to promoting, publicizing and/or advertising on behalf of the college in print publications, on the Internet, or in other media such as signage and/or presentations.
Also, your presence in or around college facilities and/or properties, as well as at off-campus college-sponsored events, constitutes your consent to the capture and/or use of your image and/or voice by RCC, and waives any claims or rights, whether in law or in equity.
Employees or students who do NOT want to be photographed or recorded, and who submit a completed Photo Opt Out Release form, are responsible for removing themselves from the area in which photographing/recording is occurring, or notifying the camera operator of their opt-out status. Failure to do so may result in the employees’ or students’ inclusion in a photograph or recording; it will be deemed equivalent to a release, and will allow the college to use that photograph or recording as it chooses.
