In particular, the university will not accept requests for interviews that would use any footage for business profit such as commercials and advertisements, as well as requests involving actions that would go against public order and standards of decency.
  3. As a rule, interviews of university members are free of charge, but if it is deemed that the content of the interview would cause significant burden, economic or otherwise, to university faculty/staff, you may be charged a fee to conduct your interview.

Also, in order to maintain safe and appropriate management of the university, the university may impose conditions on the grant of permission, and may revoke permission and/or request that you cancel the interview.
