Church Internet Acceptable Use Policy (2 Samples)
The Church Internet Acceptable Use Policy (2 Samples) are available free to download, customize and print for your church office...
The Church Internet Use Policy (2 Samples) below is a free tool to use for your church office to create their own policies and procedures for acceptable church internet use.
The first Church Internet Acceptable Use Policy below is a sample for your church to use to develop guidelines for internet usage on church computers. You can replace "[Church Name]" with your church name and make the necessary adjustments to the policy language as needed. This policy includes:
- Policy Guidelines - [Church Name] provides certain employees access to the vast information resources of the internet with the intention of increasing productivity and enhancing church-related communication. While this access has the potential for employees
to do their jobs faster or smarter, there is justifiable concern that is can
also be misused. Such misuse can waste time, potentially violate laws,
ordinances or other [Church Name] policies, garner negative publicity for the
church and potentially expose it to significant legal liabilities. This
Internet Usage Policy, which applies to all employees, is designed to
facilitate understanding of the expectations for the use of these resources. (Download the policy below to see rest of policy guidelines.)
- Detailed Internet Policy Provisions -1. [Church Name] domain name will appear with
every internet post made by a church computer user. Any user may thus be viewed
as a representative of [Church Name] while conducting business on the internet.
During any internet use, users are required to refrain from any activity or
communication that would have a negative impact on [Church Name] or the
reputation of [Church Name]. 2. User IDs and passwords help maintain
individual accountability for internet resource usage. Any user who obtains a
password or ID for an internet resource must keep that password confidential.
[Church Name] policy prohibits the sharing of user IDs or passwords obtained
for access to internet sites. 4. Only those persons who are duly authorized to
speak to the media or public gatherings on behalf of [Church Name] on a particular
subject may speak/write in the name of [Church Name] to any blog, newsgroup or
chat room. Other users may participate in blogs, newsgroups or chats in the
course of business when relevant to their duties, but they do so as individuals
speaking only for themselves and should make that clear in their communication.
Only those personals who are authorized to speak to the media or public
gatherings on behalf of [Church Name] on a particular subject may grant such
authority to blog, newsgroup or chat participants.
