Schools have two options for Facial Recognition:
Option 1: Enable (Opt-In) Facial Recognition
Facial Recognition requires a school to Opt-In. The school gives permission to Vidigami to use facial recognition technology on all images processed through the system. A school must complete the Opt-In Form to have Facial Recognition enabled. A parent can choose to Opt-Out of facial recognition for their child(ren). The school Vidigami Admin can turn off automated FR for a user from their user account.
Option 2: Disable (Opt-Out) Facial Recognition
If a school does not Opt-In, they are still able to use facial detection. Facial detection will determine whether a face is found on an image but it will not analyze the face and assign identity. It is up to the school and its users to tag photos from the list of registered users.
In both scenarios, users may Opt-Out from Vidigami, whereby any photo uploaded (by any user) and tagged by name (manually or automatically) will be unshared with the community.
