Permission to Publish Images and Photo Release Policy
Rooted Life Montessori respects the privacy of our students and families first and foremost. For the purposes of promoting Rooted Life to the community, and potential enrolling families, the therapy center publishes images of our students captured while they are at work in their classrooms, on field trips, in musical productions, and during other therapy center events that provide an accurate and positive portrayal of student, parent, staff and faculty life at Rooted Life Montessori. For that reason, it is the goal of the therapy center to gain universal permission to include images and video of (all) students in promotional materials, including but not limited to: printed collateral, website content, Facebook posts, Weekly E-newsletter, videos, print media, signage, banners, display boards and more.
Our pledge for protecting your child/our students is supported by a set of precautionary rules and policies that are designed to facilitate promotion of the therapy center without compromising the safety and welfare of our students and families:
- Rules for Photographic Image Security
- The name of a student will never be disclosed on any advertisements, publicly distributed print materials or publicly accessible content including, but not limited to, social media, videos, therapy center website, and more without specific permission.
- Therapy centergenerated videos where the voice/s and images of students accompany video images will not accompany a student name.
Parents must send special request in writing if they wish for their child(s) image not be used in Rooted Life Montessori promotional materials (see list above), to the Administrator. When permission to publish images is denied, the result is that Rooted Life will exclude that child from class photographs, and small and large group photographs that would otherwise be perfectly suited for inclusion in the chosen media distribution format.
I hereby grant to Rooted Life Montessori, their successors, and their assignees the right to record the image and/or voice and use the artwork and/ or written work of my child, on videotape, on film, on photographs, in digital media and in any other form of electronic or print medium and to edit such recording at their discretion. I understand that my child’s full name, address and biographical information will not be made public.
I further grant Rooted LIfe Montessori their successors, and their assignees the right to use, and to allow others to use, my child’s image and/or voice on the internet, in brochures, and in any other medium and hereby consent to such use.
I hereby release Rooted Life Montessori, their successors, and their assignees and any using my child’s image and/or voice, artwork, and/or written work pursuant to this media release form any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses which I or my child now have or may hereafter have by reason of any use thereof. I understand that the provisions of this release are legally binding.
