Photo/Media Policy

This policy is posted in compliance with the Desert Southwest Conference of the United Methodist Church policies regarding photo/media use.

We believe that using photos of friends of all ages in our print and web publications fosters a greater sense of community. Photography and video of our church members and friends help to display the vibrancy and joy of our church community. We use photos to enhance the quality of our print materials, newsletters, website, social media, publicity, and fundraising.

As a participant in our church events, you have a right to opt out of inclusion in photographs/media, but unless an Opt-Out Form is signed and on file at the church office with a reference image of the person opting out, participation at our church events implies permission for the use of images taken at those events.

To opt-out, please print and complete THIS FORM and turn it in to the church office along with a reference photo. Individuals who have submitted an opt-out form should also inform event photographers of their decision to opt-out so that they are not accidentally captured in crowd shots.
