University of Delaware photographers are in attendance at selected UD events, courses and programs, and their photos or videos may be used in its marketing and communications efforts.

Online class recording

The University of Delaware may record online classes and other sessions held via videoconferencing, such as Zoom, so they can be available to students who may not be able to attend the class or who may need to review for their own educational purposes. Participants’ image or voice may be captured as a part of the recording. Only the host of the videoconferencing sessions will have access to the recordings. Only the host will be able to grant further access, which will be limited to those students registered in the class who have a legitimate purpose for viewing the recording. The recording will be deleted at the end of the semester. By registering for the class, you consent to being recorded and for the recordings to be viewed as described here.

A sign indicating the presence of UD photographers is displayed at most UD events. By attending, participants acknowledge that UD photographers may be present, and authorize the University of Delaware to record or photograph their image/voice as follows:

I hereby release and discharge the University of Delaware from any and all claims and demands arising out of, or in connection with, the use of the photographs, including any and all claims for libel.
