Policy for Urantia Association Forums, Discussion Boards, Chat Rooms, and Email Lists
When a person agrees to participate in the Association’s discussion forums, discussion boards, chat rooms, email lists, etc., a minimum amount of personal information may be submitted voluntarily to establish their profile. This profile will be used only to establish the participant’s identity for the forum for which it was obtained and shall not be shared with any other forum or purpose. The email address provided shall not be transferred, sold, given, or otherwise disclosed to any third party.
Participation in any of these groups implies the participant’s agreement to the rules and methods of the group. In order to protect the privacy of other participants, all communications within the group shall not be shared with anyone outside of the group without the expressed permission of the original author of the communication. Violation of any rules of such groups will be cause for immediate action without notification in accordance with the rules of each group.
Only those personal details needed to complete a donation, contribution, or sale transaction will be obtained either on-line, by telephone, postal mail or in person. Our site uses a securely encrypted contribution response form. Credit card numbers shall be used only via secure transaction processing and shall not be retained for other purposes.
Information submitted in order to register for attendance at any event solely sponsored by the Association shall be only used for registration and may, with permission, be added to our database of Urantia Book readers. Credit card information will be maintained only for a period reasonably necessary to ensure payment for the event has been received.
