Photo Opt-Out Policy

Essendon Royals Soccer Club (“the club”) may at times use photographs, audio, and/or video recordings of members, family or spectators for purposes of club business via the Internet, print publications, and other media.

Opt-Out Form

Should members (or the parents or guardians of such persons who are under the age 18) NOT want to be photographed or recorded, or have their name or biographical information used in connection with any such recording, they must submit a completed Photo Opt-Out Form to our club.

Individuals who submit a completed Photo Opt-Out Form are also responsible for removing themselves from areas in which photography and/or recording is taking place, or notifying the camera operator of their opt-out status. Failure to do so may result in that individual's inclusion in a photograph or recording and will be treated as consent for the club to utilize that photograph or recording accordingly.

Public Spaces & Events

Please be advised that images and videos taken in public spaces and/or at public events do not require authorization for publication. Your presence in or around the club facilities and/or properties, as well as at off-club-sponsored events, constitutes your consent to the capture and/or use of your image and/or voice by Essendon Royals Soccer Club, and waives any claims or rights, whether in law or in equity.

When a completed Photo Opt-Out Form is on file, the club will make every effort to honour that individual's Opt-Out status, even in public spaces or at public events.
