Consent and Release for My Stories

I (on my own behalf and on behalf of my heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns) irrevocably grant to the City, and all others acting with their permission, the right and consent to use (including, but not limited to, to reproduce, display, broadcast, televise, publish, post, and distribute) without restriction or limitation: (1) photograph(s) and/or any other likeness of me, either in whole or in part (“Image”), (2) my statements, opinions, and/or testimonials as contained in my letter/correspondence (“Statements”), in whole or in part, as edited by the city and (3) the photograph(s) described or contained in Exhibit A attached hereto (“Photograph(s)”), for advertising, publicity, business trade, or art purposes, or for any other legal purpose, in perpetuity, throughout the world, in any and all media.

I agree that the rights granted with respect to the Photograph(s) shall be exclusive to the city for the period stated above, except for non-commercial self-promotional use by me. I agree that my Image, Statement, and/or Photograph(s) may be used alone, with each other, and/or with captions, film, artwork, audio track, photographs, or any other material. I agree that the City shall have the right to attribute statements to me, which are expressions of my personal experience(s) and belief(s). The City shall have the right to reword or rephrase any statements made by me (including characterizing such statements in the form of correspondence or a letter to the City), provided that such rewording or rephrasing does not distort my experience with the City or its products or services. I hereby affirm that any statements or opinions expressed by or attributed to me in the above-referenced advertising are a true and accurate reflection of my opinions about the City and its product(s)/service(s). In the event that I am providing a testimonial about such product(s)/service(s), I hereby affirm that I am a bona-fide user of such product(s)/service(s).

I hereby represent that (1) I am the sole owner of the Photograph(s) and that I have obtained all necessary permissions from any individual appearing or depicted in the Photograph(s) and from the owners of any property appearing or depicted in the Photograph(s) and will furnish a copy of all such releases to the City upon request, and (2) the City’s use of the Photograph(s) shall not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party. I hereby release the City from any and all liability arising out of the aforementioned use, including, but not limited to, any blurring, distortion, alteration, or optical or auditory illusion that may occur or be produced in or by the taking, reproduction, broadcast, publication, processing, or creation of the finished advertising, or any other display or use of my image, statements, and/or the Photograph(s). I further agree that the City is under no obligation to use my Image, Statements, and/or the Photograph(s) in any way and I understand that I will receive no compensation for the use of my Image, Statements, and/or the Photograph(s).

I hereby waive any right that I may have to inspect and/or approve the finished advertising, including but not limited to the copy that may be used in connection therewith, and/or to the use to which the advertising may be applied. I hereby assign all my copyrights, privacy, publicity, or any other property rights, if any, in and to the advertising or any part thereof to the City; provided, however, that I shall remain the owner of the Photograph(s).

I warrant and represent that this consent does not in any way conflict with any existing commitment on my part. I am at least eighteen (18) years of age and have the full right to make this agreement and grant the rights set forth herein. By uploading and sharing any image with the City, if said image includes minors, then I represent and warrant that I am the parent or legal guardian of pictured minors.

I understand that any content submitted, photos shared, or any additional comments made by me or my representatives may be shared with the City.
