Personal information

This policy applies to membership lists (The Directory), the church newsletter (The Communicator), both online and paper, our electronic bulletin (This Week at EUUC), website content, social media platforms, and other publicly accessible information. Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, family members’ names and ages, home and cell phone numbers, address and email addresses. These will not be released to the general public without prior knowledge and written approval. EUUC provides members’ names, birthdates, addresses and phone numbers to the Unitarian Universalist Association for purposes of dissemination of its quarterly magazine “The World”. Release of an individual’s personal information to other members of the congregation, shall be considered on an individual basis in accord with this policy. Children’s and Youth’s names, contact information, birthdates and ages should not be posted on the website(s), social media platforms, or in electronic documents. If a published document needs to refer to a specific youth, please use their initials only. For example, if the youth credo statements are posted on the website, the only identification of the author would be by that child’s or youth’s initials.
