When using photos of Lighthouse Church NC events online, either directly on the website or in our photo albums we use the following guidelines:

  • Including photos on our website is a privilege for us, and we intend to respect and honor it.
  • Automatic approval for publication on the website of pictures of adults or minors participating in church activities is assumed.
  • Photos are almost always of people in public spaces, at public events.
  • We try not to post anything that would be embarrassing, objectionable or hurtful to anyone in the photo.
  • Applying other parts of our general privacy policy, we don’t use names of children, youth or adults as captions with photos though we may use an adult’s name if a photo is related to a news story about that adult and we have that adult’s permission.

We will gladly provide credit for who took a particular photo if desired by the photographer, and we would certainly honor any copyright wishes or restrictions.

Requests by individuals for removal of specific pictures of themselves, or of parents or guardians for removal of specific pictures of their minor children will always be honored immediately upon request. Email info@lighthousechurchnc.org with your request to remove a particular photo – include the location of the photo.

Individuals may file with the church office a blanket denial of permission for publication of pictures of themselves or of their minor children or wards.
