Being John Ashford with John H. Jr Ashford


Effective date: 7 July 2022

All Being John Ashford and/or John H. Jr Ashford ('John Ashford') classes are recorded for audio and made available to participants. Online Classes and some selected others are also filmed, with the cameras generally focused on John Ashford. This disclaimer is a legal requirement that assists us in providing class material both to participants and a larger audience.

I acknowledge and agree that Being John Ashord, (#, Camas Washington Zip Code USA) and/or its affiliates ('John Ashford') may make video and/or audio recordings (“Recordings”) of the classes, workshops, and events in which I am registering, whether on or otherwise ('John Ashford Classes'). 

As a preliminary agreement to register for John Ashford Classes and for other valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, I hereby grant John Ashford a royalty-free, non-revocable, transferable right, in perpetuity, anywhere in the world to:

  • record me, my name, my likeness and my voice, by any technology or means, while attending or participating in one or more John Ashford Classes;

  • save, copy, edit, display, distribute, sell and use (collectively, “Use”) such Recordings in any manner or form whatsoever, including, but not limited to, in promotional and marketing materials; and

  • take pictures of me during classes and use them for promotion of John Ashford on its website, social media, in books and printouts.

I understand and agree that John Ashford may Use the Recordings in composite or edited forms, and I hereby waive my right to inspect or approve any version(s), including the finished version(s), of such Recordings, including written copies, quotes or transcripts that may be created in connection therewith. I also acknowledge and agree that these audio and video records are used for educational and training purposes and that other participants view the records; in this context, I waive my personal intellectual property rights (image and audio).

This Release shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington without giving effect to principles of conflicts of laws.

I have read this Release, fully understand its terms and understand that I am voluntarily giving up certain rights available to me by law, including, but not limited to, any and all rights to fees or compensation from the Use of the Recordings by John Ashford or its owners, officers, managers, employees, contractors, subsidiaries, affiliates, licensees, successors, assigns, agents, and representatives, including without limitation, John Ashford (collectively, the “Released Party”) for any and all purposes.

I understand that I can revoke these rights until the beginning of each class, zoom or telecall by informing the registration staff accordingly. I understand further that all classes are recorded and I, therefore, will not be able to ask questions in class and have to make sure of my own risk that I am not in a captured area of a video or a picture.

I acknowledge that I have the right to be informed which of my data is collected, used, consulted or otherwise processed and to what extent the personal data are or will be processed. Therefore John Ashford is obliged to respond to my request without undue delay and at the latest within one month.

John Ashford respects that natural persons have to have control of their own personal data. Regardless of the transfer of my rights, I am still allowed to participate in the class, zoom or telecall and understand that therefore I have to contribute to protecting my own rights. In class, I have to wear a sign provided by the staff at the entrance to show that I don’t want to be recorded or photographed.

I acknowledge that by checking the box I hereby waive, release and forever discharge the Released Party from any claims, demands or causes of action I may have arising out of or in connection with the Released Party’s Use of the Recordings to the greatest extent allowed by law.

If you have any questions, concerns or complaints about this Audio Video Release, please contact John Ashford:
