Images and videos taken in public spaces and/or at public events on the Winona State University campus do not require authorization for publication. As a student, faculty or staff member, your presence in or around college facilities and/or properties, as well as at off-campus university-sponsored events, constitutes your consent to the capture and/or use of your image and/or voice by Winona State University and waives any claims or rights, whether in law or in equity.

Photo Opt-Out

Photographs and/or video recordings of students, faculty and staff members may be used for the use of education, publicity and new student recruitment efforts on behalf of Winona State University via online, print and/or other media. Should an employee or student (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, must submit a completed Photo Opt-Out Form to the Marketing & Communications office in Somsen 205.

When a completed Photo Opt-Out Form is on file, the university will make every effort to honor that individual's Opt-Out status. Individuals who submit a completed Photo Opt-Out Form are responsible for removing themselves from areas in which photography and/or recording is taking place, or notify 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 university to utilize that photograph or recording accordingly.
