Privacy of Recipients
If your chapter leadership board wants to publicize personal details of the recipient of a chapter-sponsored activity, special permission is required.
Complete the following form(s) for any activity in which recipient information will be used in publicity materials. These must be completed and retained with other chapter records for seven years:
- Permission to Disclose Information – Adult (Link opens in new window) (Word, 89K)
- Permission to Disclose Information – Juvenile (Link opens in new window) (Word, 92K)
If you receive permission to publish photos of minor recipients (individuals under the age of 18), keep these important guidelines in mind:
- The laws are particularly sensitive when it comes to unauthorized photos of children, so be sure the juvenile version of the Permission to Disclose Information form is completed, and the parent or guardian has checked the "photograph" box when it comes to what information will be published.
- If you take photos of children and publicize them, do not identify full names, addresses, telephone numbers or location where photo was taken if it's a location the children frequent. This is an effort to avoid child predators.
