Discovery Place, Inc. Filming and Photography Policy
Museum filming and photography policy
Discovery Place, Inc. loves to include various forms of film, video, photography and related audio content on our social media platforms, on our websites and in print advertising and publications.
For simplicity, all references to “Discovery Place” and “our Museums” in this document include Discovery Place Science, Discovery Place Nature, Discovery Place Kids-Huntersville and Discovery Place Kids-Rockingham.
When you enter our Museums or Museum-related events, you enter an area where filming, photography and audio recording may occur. Every effort is made to make visitors aware they are being filmed, photographed and/or recorded. We are also sensitive to the wishes and rights of parents and caregivers who may not want their children to be filmed and/or photographed.
By entering our Museums, you consent to filming, photography, audio recording and its/their release, publication or reproduction for educational and promotional purposes by Discovery Place, its affiliates and representatives—including but not limited to use for news, webcasts, telecasts, advertising, social media and websites.
Videos, photos and recordings also may be used to promote Discovery Place events in the future, highlight the event and exhibit the capabilities of the Museums.
Visitors release Discovery Place, its employees and all persons involved from any liability connected with the taking, recording, digitizing or publication and use of video, photography and/or audio recordings.
By entering our Museums or Museum-related events, visitors waive all rights they may have to any claims for payment or royalties in connection with any use, exhibition, streaming, webcasting, televising or other publication of these materials, regardless of the purpose or sponsoring of such use, exhibiting, broadcasting, webcasting or other publication irrespective of whether a fee for admission or sponsorship is charged.
Visitors also waive any right to inspect or approve any video, photo or audio recording taken by Discovery Place or the person or entity designated to do so by Discovery Place.
Notice of this policy is provided for the public on all Discovery Place websites.
