First Religious Society Website Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated by the First Religious Society, Unitarian Universalist of Newburyport, MA, referred to in this policy as “we.” We recognize that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This privacy policy addresses those concerns. This policy may be changed or updated from time to time.

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, you can contact us at info@frsuu.org. We are available to answer your questions or hear your concerns.

The first principle of Unitarian Universalism is to covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We believe that this principle impels us to protect the privacy of visitors.

Personal Information

Our site collects personal information from our visitors only on a voluntary basis. Personal information may include name, address, phone number, and email address. We do not require this information to obtain access to the public parts of our site. We do not sell or rent this personal information to other organizations.

The personal information we collect is only used by us to process a request that has been placed by the visitor. We never sell your email address and if you voluntarily give it to us, we will strive to use it only for what it was intended. If we pass it, it would only be to the congregation or person who has the information you desire.

The names of members and friends may be mentioned on the website and in promotional materials, particularly in articles in the newsletter. Examples include Board members, committee chairs, Forum presenters, and worship service leaders or participants. In order to protect the privacy of these individuals, personal identification information, such as phone number, address, or email addresses, will not be included with these names without explicit permission.

Use of Photographs

Photographs of church activities will be posted on our website and used occasionally in our newsletter or other promotional materials. Personal identification information such as names will not be associated with any photograph unless identification is warranted and permission of the individual or parent (guardian) of the person photographed has been obtained.

If you see a photograph of yourself or your child that you prefer not to be included on the website, or if you would like to insure that no photo of you or your child is used for these purposes, please contact us.

Statistical Information Collected

We collect information on the browsing habits of users, and the companies that provide that service also have access to that information. This site collects information using cookies and javascript, so if they are enabled in your browser, information can be collected, such as your browser type, operating system, IP address, and country. This information is only used for statistical purposes and cannot identify you as an individual.

Information Accuracy

We make every effort to ensure that the information presented is correct and accurate. If inaccuracies occur, we will make every effort to correct them in a timely manner. To report any website inaccuracies or questions relating to our Privacy Policy, please email us at info@frsuu.org.
