Publicity Release Policy & Guidelines


By signing the Girl Scouts Heart of the South Membership Form - either for yourself or on behalf of a minor in your custody - you have consented that the videotapes, photographs, motion picture film, and/or electronic images in which you and/or the minor appear; and/or audio recordings made of your voice(s); and/or transcripts/quotes of your spoken or written words; may be used by Girl Scouts of Heart of the South (GSHS), Girl Scouts of the USA, and the United Way-and their assigns or successors-in whatever way they desire.

Furthermore, you have consented that such photographs, films, recordings, transcripts, and electronic images, and the plates, tapes, and/or software from which they are made, shall be the property of GSHS, and they shall have the right to sell, duplicate, reproduce, and make other uses of such photographs, films, recordings, electronic images, transcripts, plates, tapes, and software as they may desire free and clear of any claim whatever on your part.

If you checked the "I wish to opt out at this time" portion of the Media Permission section, please inform volunteers, staff or council representatives that you do not wish to be photographed or recorded.


If you wish to use photographs for publicity purposes (including your Girl Scout Troop or Service Unit website), you must obtain a Publicity Release Form for each non-member pictured in the photographs you plan to use.

  • Publicity Release Forms for adults can be downloaded here.
  • Publicity Release Forms for minors can be downloaded here.

Please keep the signed forms in your possession, and do not post or share any images until AFTER you have obtained all of the necessary releases for all of the non-members in the images.

The Council is here to help!
