My previous company has recently updated their website, and included pictures of the employees as well as events and reviews to boost their image.
I don't know if they have asked permission to current employees to post pictures where they appear, but they have definetely not asked me (an ex-employee) if they could post a picture where I appear in their website.
I'm not comfortable appearing in their website and I wrote an email to the HR department asking them to remove the picture from their website.
HR has not replied to my email (which is not very surprising, since they usually reply very late or not at all).
My next steps will be to write again an email asking them to confirm that they have received my email and they are processing my petition, but I have little hope of receiving an answer.
So, what I was thinking to do is write a certified letter where I ask them to remove the picture from their website and I prohibit them to use my image or data for any promotional purposes of the company.
My question is: From a legal point of view, a certified letter proves that addressee has received the letter (since they have to sign the reception) but it doesn't really prove the content of the letter. So even if at a later stage I try to prove that I requested them to remove my picture with a certified letter, I cannot prove that the letter had this content.
How can I legally notify a company about something, so I have proof of reception and content?
