UW-Richland may at times use photographs, audio, and/or video recordings of employees and students for purposes of education, publicity, and student recruitment on behalf of the university, via the Internet, print publications, and other media.
Should an employee or student (or the parents or guardians of such persons who are under the age 18) NOT want to be photographed or recorded, or have their name or biographical information used in connection with any such recording, they must submit a completed Photo Opt-Out Form to the Office of Students Affairs/Solution Center.
Individuals who submit a completed Photo Opt-Out Form are also responsible for removing themselves from areas in which photography and/or recording is taking place, or notifying the camera operator of their opt-out status. Failure to do so may result in that individual's inclusion in a photograph or recording and will be treated as consent for the university to utilize that photograph or recording accordingly.
Public Spaces & Events
Please be advised that images and videos taken in public spaces and/or at public events do not require authorization for publication. Your presence in or around college facilities and/or properties, as well as at off-campus university-sponsored events, constitutes your consent to the capture and/or use of your image and/or voice by UW-Richland and waives any claims or rights, whether in law or in equity.
When a completed Photo Opt-Out Form is on file, the university will make every effort to honor that individual's Opt-Out status, even in public spaces or at public events.
