Is my Information Safe?
By default, the viewing of your contact and personal information is limited to members of groups you are in, group leaders, and staff members. If you choose to, however, you can make your information visible to the entire church (directory). But if you prefer to be more private, you can customize how people see specific information*.
- Contact Information: Name, Address, Phones, and Email.
- Personal Information: Marital Status, Family Position, Member Status, but you also have the option of sharing your birthday, gender, allergy information, and skills with people in your church.
A family member with a primary position such as "Head" or "Spouse" can change privacy settings for other members of the family and opt family members into the church directory.
Birthdays are required for children (as a means to prohibit access), but it’s up to you if you want to share the birth date with your church family
*If you are a group leader or host an event, certain contact information may be visible regardless of the settings you choose.Is Realm a Church Directory?
In short, no. Realm will always honor your privacy settings. Only those who have created a Realm account will appear in the “directory” for other church members, and you’ll control what contact information they see. Your basic information is additionally available to other members of your groups, but not the entire church. However, group leaders and staff will have additional visibility.What if I don’t see my own family in Realm?
When you first create your account, Realm tries to match you with your existing records at Church of the Saviour. If our record doesn’t match what you entered (perhaps a new email), Realm might not be able to make the match.
