Photo & Video Policy

Vintage City Church (“Vintage”) values how photos, videos, and other media help our faith community grow and flourish. Photos and videos tell our story and provide visitors with information about our church. They provide clarity about our worship gatherings and events, highlight the work of those who serve, and allow us to communicate our mission as a church for people who don’t go to church via our website and other digital and print media. 

 

Accordingly, photography, videography, and live streaming will be in progress at Vintage’s gatherings, ministry activities, classes, programs, and other events. Vintage may use the media recorded at these events in materials produced by or for the church, including but not limited to our bulletins, posters, brochures, newsletters and other printed and electronic materials, digital media (e.g., Vintage’s website, our online campus, and other social media sites).  

 

By participating in Vintage’s gatherings, ministry activities, classes, programs, and events:

  1. You consent to be photographed, videotaped, or otherwise recorded.
  2. You grant permission for Vintage to use recordings containing your image, likeness, voice, or statements, without compensation, credit, or other consideration to you, for Vintage’s promotional, publicity, and other purposes, throughout the world and perpetuity.
  3. You agree to release, hold harmless and indemnify Vintage from any and all liabilities and claims involving the use of your image, likeness, voice, or statements. 

 

While we reserve the right to photograph and record church events, we strive to ensure that photography and videography are used safely and positively. We will not knowingly and intentionally post any photo, video, or other recordings that would be embarrassing, objectionable, or hurtful to any clearly, personally identifiable individual in the recording. 

 

Additionally, if you see a photo on the Vintage website or social media pages that include you or your child and would like it removed, please contact us at info@vintagecitychurch.com. Please note we cannot remove your image from video or live stream messages. Please understand that Vintage has no control over the recording, use, and posting of images or other media by non-church staff (e.g., by community members, news outlets) and no ability to remove such media from publications, including internet or social media sites, that Vintage does not run.
