  • Event Lanyards: Photographs always okay
  • Reflective Lanyards: Photographs never okay, please don’t ask

Youth for Christ International reserves the right to use any photograph/video taken at the General Assembly 2017 event, without the expressed written permission of those included within the photograph/video. YFCI may use the photograph/video in publications or other media material produced, used or contracted by YFCI including but not limited to: brochures, invitations, books, newspapers, magazines, television, websites, etc.

To ensure the privacy of individuals and children, images will not be identified using full names or personal identifying information without written approval from the photographed subject, parent or legal guardian.
