STARS POLICY REGARDING PHOTOGRAPHY
STARS is a membership organization organized under the laws of the State of New York. The STARS flying field, located in Phoenix, New York, is owned by STARS, and as such, is privately owned property.
The purpose of this policy is to limit and restrict the reproduction of images, in any form, of the STARS property and the activities which occur thereon.
While the STARS property is privately owned, members, guests, and the general public are welcome at the field during published field hours of operation. Members, guests and the public must adhere to all rules imposed by STARS regarding entry upon and/or the use of STARS property, including the STARS policy on photography.
The reproduction of images of the STARS field or the activities thereon, in any form, is a privilege and not a right.
Except as provided below, the reproduction of images of the STARS field or activities thereon in any form, including, but not limited to film and digital still photography, and video photography in either film or digital form, is strictly forbidden.
Violation of this policy will result in immediate expulsion of the violator from the STARS premises, and may subject the violator to criminal and/or civil sanctions and penalties.
Members in good standing of STARS shall be exempt from the above requirements so long as any images or video produced of the STARS premises or the activities thereon are for personal and non-commercial use.
Guests and the general public may be permitted to photograph or video the STARS property and activities thereon, but only for personal and non-commercial use, and only with the prior written consent of the Club's executive board.
