Gathering and Use of Personal Information
Your information, including personal data, may be transferred to and/or maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those in your own jurisdiction.

Posting of Personal Information
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example, in a post, a form submission, or through email – that information can be collected and used by others. By disclosing personal information online, you may make that information available to others who may use it to send you unsolicited messages or for other purposes you may not desire or intend.

Photos and other media help tell the story of our vibrant community, enhance the quality of information we provide, and help visitors have an idea of what to expect when they attend our church.
We would like to share media items recorded at our various ministry activities, events and programs in church-produced materials including, but not limited to, brochures, newsletters, social media sites, and on the church website.
Accordingly, participation in church activities implies permission for publication of any media recorded, unless a “Media Opt-Out Form” has been submitted to the church office (below). While we reserve the right to photograph and record church events, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will strive to adhere to the following guidelines:
- Any adult may complete the Media Images Opt-Out Form if they do not wish for media items in which they, vulnerable adults in their charge or the minor children for whom they are the parent/legal guardian are prominently featured to be used in publications produced by First Christian Church.
- Anyone may request a particular media item which prominently features them or those for whom they are the parent/legal guardian be removed from use by submitting a request to the church office. All requests will be documented.
Special consideration for media images of minors (whether or not you opt-out):
- No identifying information will accompany photos, including names, addresses, email addresses, family members’ names, or schools.
- If a child is wearing a nametag in a photo, the nametag will be removed using photo editing software.
- Images of individual minors will not be used to advertise future events without parental consent (a photo release form). Large-group photos in which individual children cannot be identified are permissible.
