  2. Consent and Release:

    • By participating in activities at Ripple Effects Community Inclusion Center, individuals (or their guardians) may be asked to sign a Photo Release Form.

    • Individuals have the right to decline being photographed or recorded. If an individual does not wish to be photographed or recorded, they must inform the staff or the photographer/videographer at the time.

    • If a photo release form has not been signed, the Center will make reasonable efforts to avoid using or publishing media featuring that individual.

  5. Revoking Consent:

    • Consent for the use of media can be revoked at any time. A written request must be submitted to the Center’s administration for the withdrawal of any existing media from our publications. However, it may not be possible to recall printed materials or published digital content.

  6. Protection of Privacy:

    • Ripple Effects Community Inclusion Center respects the privacy of all individuals. Identifiable images or videos will not be used in a way that could be considered harmful, misleading, defamatory, or invasive of personal privacy.
