The Student and the Parent hereby consent to the collection, use, storage and disclosure of Personal Information in accordance with this Agreement. The Parties agree that, unless otherwise permitted under this Agreement or required by law, only designated representatives of the Company are authorized to view the Footage. The Company will not disclose the Personal Information, or any information contained in the Footage, to any person (including the Parent(s)) unless: a. The health or safety of the Student is at risk; b. The health or safety of others is at risk; c. There is a threat or has been a commission of a criminal act; d. The Student and Parents mutually determine that the Student's story may be made public; or e. Disclosure is otherwise required by law.
For Ambassadors beginning in September 2019 and after, the Cost of Participation in the Film Project is CA$1000 per year and includes a one-on-one personal interview, plus full review and the collection of B Roll (limited raw footage of the student’s activities). An additional CA$500 per year down payment toward an eventual edited film on your child is optional.
Various scholarships and payment waivers are possible, and may be arranged and documented in email exchanges between Parent(s) and Company.

If the Parent and/or Student revoke consent, that revocation is not retroactive; however, the Student’s participation in the Film Project will end at the time of the revocation. In these circumstances, the Company and will hold any existing Footage and deliver it to the Student when he/she reaches the age of majority.
