What is the Church's Policy of taking photos of other peoples children without their permission and posting them online? My children's schools have me sign a waiver giving them permission to take photos of my child, and to post them online, on blogs or social media. I feel it is very respectful for the school to honor a parents wishes in this regards. I think the Church probably has a policy about this but I am not aware of it. Can someone please let me know?
