The Internet is not a secure environment. However, we make every reasonable effort to protect your personally identifiable information. The policies described herein were established to respect your security. The following policies apply to all forms of Hibben communication including, but not limited to, our website, social media accounts, in house publications (such as Hibben Happenings and weekly eblast), in house videos and slideshows.
Our policy is as follows:
Children and young people (17 years & under) will not be identified by personal details other than first name, unless prior permission has been obtained from the parents or guardian. In the case of large group photos, no names are usually posted.
Adults (18 years &older) who attend Hibben activities will be considered to have given implied consent for the posting of their images in our various publications with their first and last names. However, we usually only include first names or in the case of group photos, no names are posted.
We will post individually identifiable information (phone number, email, etc.) only when you specifically request that we do so. Typically, this will occur when you desire to serve as a point of contact for an upcoming event, on-going activity, etc. We will make every effort to use the church office as a global point of contact instead of posting any personal information in church publications.
Our online member directory, which contains names, addresses, phone numbers and in some cases, email addresses, will remain in a password protected area of our website.
Please be aware any service my be recorded and/or use live-streaming. While the congregation is not usually shown, there is a chance you could be recorded. Our Children’s Minute, which takes place at the front of the Sanctuary, is included in the recording and live-streaming.
Any member objecting to the use of his or her photo, and/or objecting to the use of a minor child’s photo in any of our publications, should inform the church office.
