The following is an excerpt from the CCAC Style Guide and Branding Manual:
Images and Photos
Photos and other graphics to accompany written text on web pages, brochures, flyers, and other publications of the college are available and may be requested through the Promotions and Marketing Department.
Photos which show recognizable images of people should not be used for marketing or publicizing the college unless subjects in the photos have signed a release form giving the college permission to use their photos. This includes photos on the website.
Signed and dated photo release forms used in marketing the college should be kept on file in the Promotions and Marketing Department. Signed and dated forms for photos used on the website should be filed with the Webteam, with copies kept on file in the departments authoring the web pages.
Generally speaking, release forms are not required of subjects in news photographs (including campus newspaper coverage) at public events, such as a basketball game, campus rally, etc. Media visits to the classroom are not considered public events, so release forms should be collected and students should be given the opportunity to opt out of the photo session.
Whenever practical, it may be best to collect a signed release form simply to avoid any possible liability problems.
Release forms for photos of individuals under age 18 should be signed by a parent or guardian.
