Website & Social Media Policy

First Presbyterian Church of Plattsburgh

Website Policy

October 18, 2017

The First Presbyterian Church of Plattsburgh operates a single website on behalf of the church. The web editor is responsible for maintaining this page and works at the pleasure of Session.

Policy:

  • The Church encourages the appropriate use of the website as a method for communicating church activities and information to the public. The primary focus is to communicate with church members, but the secondary focus is to recruit new members.
  • Content and information released on the website is equivalent in stature to content and information released to the media and public in any other format.
  • Photos of children will only be posted if the parent or legal guardian has not previously stated in writing that photos should not be taken of their child.
  • Photos or content of adult congregation members may be posted without consent, as the church is a public venue. However, if a congregation member wishes for their likeness to be removed from the website, the web editor will do so at their earliest convenience.
  • Congregation members are encouraged to provide ideas for content to the web editor, but the web editor is responsible for vetting and approving any ideas for content. Submitting content to the editor does not guarantee it will be posted.
