Respecting portrait rights and privacy

When you intend to use portrait pictures, videos, or pictures of events, you must ensure that the portrait rights and privacy rights of the people depicted are properly respected. Most importantly, you must ask and obtain permission to take portrait photographs. And at events, you must inform visitors and participants that they may be photographed or filmed.

Their main purpose is not to impose rules but to give you tips and tools to use photography responsibly.
