Club Use of Images:

With today’s technology, it is almost certain that photos will be taken at Calgary Newcomers’ Club events.  You agree that the onus is on you to leave a photo opportunity if you do not want your photo taken or published in the Club’s newsletters, on the Club’s website, Club’s social network (e.g. Facebook) or any means used by the Club to promote the Club and its activities.  The Club agrees to, where possible, to remove your photo, or request that your photo be removed, should you have been unaware that photos were taken at an event.

Members Use of Images:

I understand that the social media has become pervasive.  I agree that when I have taken photos at Club events for my personal use and/or personal social network, that I will honor a members request to remove their photos from my social network and/or the public view.  I will treat members with respect, just as I expect to be treated with respect.  I agree that nobody needs to be portrayed in an unflattering or disrespectful manner.
