High Hampton retains rights to any images and videos obtained by drones operating from High Hampton and may implement additional policies governing their use.

Any violation of this policy may result in any/all of the following: suspension of access privileges to the High Hampton and confiscation of any prohibited equipment. Violators may also be subject to primary liability for damages; including, but not limited to, damages for trespass, violations of privacy and physical injuries to people and/or property, as well as legal defense costs.
