    They cannot post your Picture on Internet and facebook without your consent.
    In this case, you should talk to the GYM manager and tell him to remove the picture of your from the Facebook account of the Gym.
    Also tell him that as per law they are not allowed to use your picture for GYM promotions without your consent.

    They should use only those pictures which is their own property and if someone photo is in that picture, that persons consent should be there with them.
    He will definitely remove your picture

    Hi buddy

    Now-a-days it is a very common things to post yours or other's pictures on social networking sites. This practice is very common and thus no one thinks about taking permission from someone while posting their pics. But ofcourse as it is your picture, you have a copyright over it and no one should have the right to post it on some random site without taking your permission. So your office gym members should definitely have taken your permission before posting your pictures. But now what has been done can't be undone. But of course you have full say in this matter and if you want can even ask them to remove your photos from the social networking site. Or atleast you can tell them not to post your pictures on any site in the future as you aren't comfortable with it.

    So friend dont be afraid and you should not definitely not allow someone to misuse your pictures or use them for their own benefit without your permission. They should atleast have the decency to take your permission. Thus tell them this time what is in your mind so that the next time they will atleast remeber to take your permission for such things and thus dont misuse your photos and identity.

    I hope you get my point friend. Such matters should be handled tactfully and with care. Good luck buddy and God Bless

    Dear Aspirant,

    As per law,it is not permitted.

    In fact there are using your well being for their sake & popularity.

    You have full right to rise question in this regard.

    In order to rise the question,first of all you should have a proof of it.

    Then you ask the concerned head as to why your photos are being used for advertisement without your knowledge.

    See what answers you get.

    If you are not satisfied,you can contact a good lawyer & can proceed legally.

    Hope for your positive result.

    Thanks.

    Ashok..

    Hello,

    Without your permission,no body has the right to post anything on any social networking site.If you are confirmed that the picture displayes none other than you,then you can take necessary measures.Firstly you can remove the picture from your profile by deleting it from your wall.Then check who has uploaded such picture.IF it has been done by any person known to you,you can ask him/her to remove it directly.I think it has been done by some one already known to you.Dont worry much.Deleting such picture is very easy,just by selecting delete option from the picture,you can remove it,and your problem will be solved.

    Dear Friend!

    Of course! Your office gym can post your picture on the social networking site without informing you. There may be the only reason for this "Your body shape will be looking very good than other." If you don't want to post your picture on any social networking sites, you can request to office gym for this.

    thanks

    Hello !!

    yes, ofcourse you have.
    but if the pictures is not so personal and is awsome than they can post them on the social networking sites.
    because company too don't want to post those pictures which seems to be vulgur and offensive and harm someone personal rights.
    but still company should have asked you.
    but if they didn't asked you and you feel it that they should ask you before posting the advertisements of their company products which contains your pictures or any thing that is personal to you.
    so must go to the company head and ask them about this and tell them that you are little uncomfortable with the advertisements of the company that contains your pictures but try to make them assure that you are comfortable with the advertisements.
    otherwise they might take it in another way.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting.

    Dear friend I have seen your statement your office Gym used your pictures toward social networking sites without your opinion and you are not happy at all about the recent office activities.

    As per my view whenever you go to take any action positive/negative you must think it well whether you are doing right or wrong correctly.

    1.First you are to consider you are the employee of the same concern.

    2.Any negative which can loose your prestige/monetary benefit as well.

    3.Rather the activity will enhance your prestige, fame etc.

    4.If it is your ego or usual principle.

    Above things you should consider before taking any action against your office Gym authority.

    It is true without your permission your picture can not use for the purpose of office benefit only,at least they should consult with you about your opinion before using your pictures toward social networking site.

    Thank you,

    Hi aspirant

    I think as you are linked with the office gym and go there for workouts , so they can definitely use your picture for promotional purposes if you yourself let them click it. As you yourself allowed them to take your picture in the gym, so it means you have given them a nod to use it however they like. But if you still feel they havent done the right thing by taking your permission before posting these pics on the social networking sites, then you can talk to them regarding this and from the next time can tell them not to do such a kind of thing as you dont like it and thus they should respect your wishes in this regard.
    I personally dont think you should have any problem in this regard as they are just using these pictures for the promotion of their gym and are not trying to hurt or defame you in any way. Thus you should allow them to post your pics but only for promotional purposes only. But if you are striongly against this, then you should go and speak with them and not be afraid to do so.
    Friend go and solve your problem and dont take unnecessary tension which is not good for your health.
    Good luck to you

    ===============================================

    Hi,

    See every person has a personal life.
    No one has the right to interfere in another person's personal life.
    This is absolutely wrong if they have posted your pictures without taking your permission.
    I think you should complain about this to the higher level management and request them to take some action to remove the pictures from the social networking site.
    Also warn the Gym management that they have no right to take anybody's pictures and then upload them anywhere.
    If they do this again,then strict action must taken against them!

    Bye!

    Re: Can my Office Gym use my pictures on social networking site?

    Hey!
    I agree with your point of view that your picture cannot be posted on any social networking account without your permission. Your picture is something that is personal to you and your consent is required before any random person uses it for any purpose. It is understandable if you are not comfortable with the fact that your pictures that are taken in the gym are posted on the social networking site. One would not like to post pictures of oneself while one is working out in the gym.

    You should contact the the manager of the gym and ask him who takes care of the profile of the gym on the social network. You should first have a word with the concerned person and mention it to him that you are not comfortable with your pics being posted on the profile while you work out in the gym. You should also mention that it is something personal to you and hence you would want that you should be asked before your pics are being posted. This would ensure that you make an effort from your side to prevent any pics being posted on the social networking site for publicity.

    Sometimes it happens that the person who is posting your pic on the social networking site is doing it just for publicity and it has not occured to him that you might not be okay with this fact. So by telling him this you lay down your point. The reason behind this might also be misuse of your pics. Incase you find that is the intention behind the management of the gym then you should first curb it down by reporting it to higher authorities. If that doesn't happen then you should file a case against the concerned authorities in the court of law.

    I hope that your problem is sorted out very soon. All the best..

    Re: Can my Office Gym use my pictures on social networking site?

    Its really shocking to see your photos be used without your permission seriously put your thoughts for this issue.. No one can use your photo with your permission to use them as publicity activities by the gym office.. Its total against privacy of an individual you should seriously ask them to remove it as your not really the promoter of the gym did gym office made any contact with you to put your photo in social networking sites is this the way you do your publicity you are no brand ambassador for the gym and as well as promoter you should immediately go to gym office right now and protest lodge your complain and take some serious talk over them.. Everyone will se your photo and will ask how much did the gym pay for taking you as promoter its disgusting it lacks some freedom and private things like photo should never be shared with your promotion.. Don't try to think they are publicizing and promoting you as this will be against your private life ..

    Taking pictures in gym doesn't mean they do anything with your photo now they may also distribute with out your knowledge its responsible and legal to ask you before making your photo public they should have some sense in dealing with people and customers before they do.. Clicking picture at their place makes no sense image is yours they don't have any say about the custody of your image image is not a toy thing to play..

    If they would have asked you before it would be welcome thing to allow but without it you should let them know what you personally feel..
