Collection of your Personal Information
LOC does not collect personally identifiable information on this website.
LOC encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from LOC so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. LOC is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the LOC Web site.
We have several basic groups of people that might be listed or referred to: pastors/staff, adult members, and youth. Information of concern includes names, email addresses, phone numbers and photos. Home addresses are never posted.
For pastors/staff, we list names, email addresses (usually office emails), and office phone numbers. No home phone numbers, home addresses, or mobile phone numbers are listed. It is important that people be able to contact the staff and that access is all through the office.
For adult members, we often list names when they are a contact for some group or activity that we are featuring on the Web site. We do not list email addresses unless they have specifically given permission. We do not list phone numbers unless they have specifically given permission. It is assumed that members have the church directory or can call the office for phone numbers.
For youth and children, we do not list names, first or last. We also do not list addresses, email addresses or phone numbers. Photo captions do not include their names. This is for their own protection.
When using photos of LOC events, attendees, or members - either directly on the Web site or in our photo albums - we use the following guidelines:
- We try not to post anything that would be embarrassing, objectionable or hurtful to anyone in the photo.
- We don't put names as captions with photos (except for pastors/staff or other members who have given expressed written consent.)
- We will honor any copyright wishes or restrictions.
- We will gladly remove any photo immediately upon request.
Please be aware, that while we never post home addresses, there are a number of websites that provide white pages, or extensive listings of mailing addresses based on people's names.
