I hereby authorize Mn Adult & Teen Challenge (“MnTC”) to use and/or disclose health information including my recovery story about me for promotional, inspirational, educational and/or informational purposes including (a) on MnTC and its affiliated organization’s websites, print and electronic media, (b) to the public, local, state and national government officials; (c) to reporters for local, state and national media publications, including newspapers, magazines and on-line media; and to reporters for local, state and national television broadcast stations.
I specifically authorize the use and/or disclosure of the following health information: My name, details about my addiction, recovery and my story, my appearance on camera, in still photos or video footage for use in publications (print or electronic), web sites, audio, video, television commercial, advertising or film.
I consent to MnTC’s recording of my voice, name, likeness, image, appearance, performance or story (all referred to as “Images”) by MnTC. I agree that the recording may be created in any form, including, but not limited to, photography, video recording, and digital recording and may be transferred to or duplicated using any form of media now known or later developed, including, but not limited to, digital imaging, computer media file, videotape, film, slides, photographs and audio tapes. I agree that MnTC has the full right to produce, use, copy, distribute, exhibit and transmit Images, including, without limitation, the right to edit, mix or duplicate and to use or re-use Images in whole or part as MnTC may elect. I agree that any Images provided by Me or recorded of Me become the sole and exclusive property of MnTC in perpetuity and that MnTC shall, in its sole discretion, decide if, when, and how Images are to be used. I release MnTC from any and all claims I might otherwise have to control my Images including, but not limited to, claims based on a violation of the right to privacy or right to publicity, defamation, or claims to royalties or compensation of any kind. I agree that this Agreement is binding on Me and anyone who may have rights through Me, including, but not limited to, my legal heirs, personal representatives, trustees, or assigns, and that neither I nor they will have a right to bring any claim or legal action of any kind against MnTC.
