General Privacy Guidelines
The privacy of our group’s members as well as other members of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore, this website will conform to the copyright laws of the United States as well as the interpretation of those laws by the SCA by defining these privacy guidelines.
The identifiable likeness of any member of the SCA will not be placed on this web site without the express written permission of the member, or the member’s legal guardian should the member be a minor.
An identifiable likeness is defined as the ability to positively identify a person through facial recognition. A person is not identifiable if their back is to the camera, they are wearing a helm or other face-obscuring artifact, or the image is so blurred as to make the positive identification of the person impossible.
An easy to use rule of thumb is: If the person’s grandmother would recognize them, written permission is necessary.
Personal Information Guidelines
Personal information will not be posted to this website without the express written permission of the member, or the member’s legal guardian should the member be a minor.
Personal information is defined as any information which will make a person identifiable to anyone, even those who do not know the person such as any of the following:
Home Phone Number
Cell Phone Number
Work Phone Number
Personal Email Address
Work Email Address
Society names, society/group email addresses, registered devices etc. do not fall under this provision and do not need permission to be used on this website.
Intellectual Material Guidelines
Any article, photograph, artwork, or any other such item over which an individual or group retains the copyright, trademark, or intellectual rights will not be posted to this website without the express written permission of the individual or group retaining such rights, or the individual’s legal guardian should the individual be a minor.
