St. Barnabas Episcopal Church 4836 Cascade St. North Chesterfield, VA 23234 (Mailing Address: 5155 Iron Bridge Road North Chesterfield, VA 23234)
MEDIA POLICY We believe that using photos and recordings of members, friends and visitors bring life to and help tell the story of St. Barnabas. They show our joy and enhance the quality of the information we provide to our members and give visitors an idea of what to expect when they visit our church. Sharing photos and videos is a privilege for us. Church members often photograph or record our various ministry activities, events and programs, creating media to use in church-produced materials, including, but not limited to, bulletins, posters, brochures, flyers, newsletters and other printed materials, social media sites and on the church website. Accordingly, participation in church activities implies permission for publication of any media recorded, unless a “Media Opt-Out Form” has been submitted to the church office.
Media Use Guidelines While we reserve the right to photograph and record church events, and in an effort to respect your privacy, we will strive to adhere to the following guidelines: *As a participant in our church events, you have a right to Opt-Out of inclusion in photographs/media. If you have vulnerable adults in your charge or minor children for whom you are the parent/legal guardian, you may complete a Media Opt-Out Form. *You may ask a greeter for an Opt-Out form, download it from our website or request one from our parish administrator. * To Opt-Out, please complete and sign our Media Opt-Out Form, attach your photo and turn in the completed form to the church office. *However, unless an Opt-Out form is signed and on file, participation at our church events implies permission for the use of images taken at those events. Individuals who have submitted an Opt-Out form should also inform event photographers of their decision to Opt-Out so that photos in crowd shots would not accidentally be published. *This Opt-Out form does not apply to photos that might be taken and used by others who attend a service or event.
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 or any other identifying information in the photos and videos we use in our online and printed publications. *We will gladly remove any photo or video upon request from our online sites. If you see a photo that includes you or your child and would like it removed from the site, please call the church at 804.275.1648 or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.
