The other kinds of information we may collect relate to:

· Your interests and opinions
For example, we may ask you what types of community programs you would like to see, or we may ask what concerns you have about your community; in order to help with our community and program development. We may ask you what types of volunteering you may be interested in, and ask if we can contact you if these types of volunteer positions come up.
Photographs may be taken at some events or during programs to use in our community newsletter, on our website or social media feeds, or used for future promotion of events and programs. You will be advised of this prior to registration, in the waiver, and at the time of the event. You are given the opportunity in advance to remove yourself from the area photographs are being taken, or request that identifiable photographs of yourself, or family members, are not used. However, please note the HCA cannot be held liable for the use of photographs taken by any members of the public at public events.
