We believe that using photos of people of all ages in our print and web publications fosters a greater sense of community. Photography and video recordings from the Filipino-American Association of Vancouver events help FAAV to display the vibrancy and joy of our Filipino-American community. We use photos to enhance the quality of our print materials, newsletters, the filamvancouver.org website, social media, publicity, and fundraising. We also use photos to further our efforts in community outreach and supporting the connection between Filipino-Americans across Vancouver, Washington and the Pacific Northwest. As a participant in FAAV events, you have a right to opt out of inclusion in photographs/media, but unless a "Media Images Opt-Out Release" is signed and on file at the FAAV office with a reference image of the person opting out, participation in FAAV activities implies permission for the use of images take at those events.
FAAV will never post images with identifying information such as name, email address, address, or family members' names. No special compensation is provided to any individual included in images taken at FAAV events. FAAV does not contact individuals to notify them of or when their images is used by FAAV.
Individuals who have submitted a completed "Media Images Opt-Out Release" form should endeavor to alert photographers should they see someone in their vicinity taking pictures, so that they are not accidentally captured in crowd shots.
This opt-out form does not apply to photos that might be taken and used by others who attend our FAAV events.
