The Caux Forum Online offers a safe space that needs to be respected. Please ask the organizer of the meeting if it is ok to take screenshots. Screenshots and recordings should be treated like other potentially harassing interpersonal interactions, hence, when one person in the interaction says “stop” or “leave me alone” or words to that effect, the interaction must end. In such case, attendees should not attempt to photograph that individual again. Lastly, the subject may inspect the screenshot/recording at any time and, if requested, the photograph or footage, etc as the case may be must be immediately deleted.

For special events, a professional photographer will be engaged by the Caux Forum Communications Team, and these photos are also free to use, with the following credit: © Initiatives of Change | Photo by (Name of Photographer)
