Media Use

Advances in technology are enabling new forms of social interaction that may extend beyond the appropriate use of cameras or recording devices.  The following policies are meant to ensure the appropriate use of digital media:

  1. Inappropriate use of cameras, imaging, cell phones or digital devices is prohibited.  It is inappropriate to use any device capable of recording or transmitting visual images in showers, restrooms, changing rooms or other areas where privacy is expected by participants.
  1. Participants of OSU-sponsored youth programs must sign a Model and Information Release before pictures or videos can be used for reports, advertising or promotional materials. See the OSU Risk Services webpage for liability waiver and media release forms: These forms must be used verbatim and cannot be modified by individual programs without approval by the Office of Insurance and Risk Management Services or the Office of General Counsel.
  1. A photo opt out release is available for those participants of OSU-sponsored youth programs who do not wish for the University to record their participation and appearance on any recorded medium.
