Immanuel Lutheran Church uses various methods to communicate with members and the larger community in ways that help us follow Christ’s instruction to “make disciples.” Members’ names and/or contact information may be published within those communication efforts. In some cases, photos of Immanuel people and events also may be published.
While those efforts are important to how we share the gospel, respecting your privacy and keeping your information secure are equally important.
How Immanuel Uses Your Personal Data
You may have provided Immanuel with personal data such as your mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address.
Immanuel uses the personal information you provide for the purposes for which it was originally collected – for example, to respond to your e-mail or note, or to provide communications/information via printed material, e-mail or through our web site. We also may use this information to contact you or others about organizations, programs, services, and other things we believe will be of interest to you, or to ask for your support.
Although Immanuel collects some data about children younger than 13, that information is closely guarded. Neither names nor contact information for children younger than 13 appear in Immanuel communication vehicles. Photos of children may appear, but the children will not be identified by name.
If you are 13 or older:
Immanuel will comply with any copyright or other legal requirements that may apply to the use of photos and contact information.
- Your name and contact information may appear in The Parish News, the official publication of Immanuel Lutheran Church.
- Your photo may appear in The Parish News or on www.immanuellkc.org. The caption with the photo may or may not identify you by name.
- Your name may appear as a contact in Immanuel’s online church calendar, in postings on www.immanuelkc.org, or in e-mail communication. Your address and contact information will not appear in any of these electronic venues.
