We are close to getting our webinar technology problems fixed - finally! Next Wednesday, September 18 I'll be coming to you live from Orlando at 4:00pm Eastern Time with a quick 15-minute follow up webinar on website terms and conditions. We will continue doing 15-minute webinars every Wednesday thereafter. The first 15-minute webinar will be free. However, there will be bonus content for our All-Access Pass holders. Next week, every All-Access Pass Holder will get a free terms and conditions template.
Now I know what you're thinking - why does my church website need to have terms and conditions? Its simple - failure to have terms and conditions can cause a lot of problems. What do you do with copyrighted content that someone else posts on your social media channels? What do we do if something you put online is trademarked and you don't know it? How do you interact with children on your website? Are you in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)? How do you handle the data you collect from people when they sign up for events? Who has access to that data? How does one find out what information you have about them? Does anyone in Europe (including U.S. citizens traveling there) use your website? Are you GDPR compliant?
Church General Counsel Managing Attorney Josh Bryant, J.D., M.Div., authors most of the posts in this section. From time to time, he will post articles from others in the field of church growth, administration, and operations.
