Photo Directory

Note - this page is still under construction, and some information below may be incomplete or incorrect. Dated 2/2/19Below you will find information on how to sign into our Photo Directory from your computer, smart phone, or tablet. Finally, information on website and phone security is included.

IMPORTANT. PLEASE READ FIRST

TO SIGN IN, YOU MUST USE THE EMAIL ADDRESS THAT WAS USED TO SEND YOU THE JANUARY 30, 2019 EMAIL FROM BRUCE FRY REQUESTING A PHOTO. (While many families have more than one email address, only the one described above has been entered into Instant Church Directory, which is the company hosting our photo directory. If you wish to use a different email address for you or your family, please contact Bruce Fry.)

If your family has more than one entry into the current hard copy UUCF Directory (for example, when there is more than one last name in a family), you probably received 2 requests for a photo of your family. While it is preferred that there be only one photo per family in order to limit the size of the Photo Directory, any family with multiple last names should feel free to provide one photo under each last name.

Security Facts From the Instant Church Directory Website

Your Instant Church Directory (ICD) account is protected by a username and password that only you should know. Search engines do not crawl any of the directory data located within the password-protected portion. We take your privacy very seriously. We are always making sure the Instant Church Directory website and databases are up to date with the latest security patches to protect against any current and future security threats.

Online Member Directory Security

We have a fully secure system for the online access just like the mobile app. Only members who are entered in the directory can login to the website, and when a member leaves UUCF they no longer have the ability to access the directory.

Mobile App Security

We built a fully secure system for all our mobile apps. Only active members can gain access to your directory, and access is revoked when a member leaves UUCF. We send down the member data from our server to the mobile devices via SSL/encryption. Once a device has synced, that data is stored locally on the device (and therefore is not encrypted).

Member Information Security

Even though your data is stored with us, we at Instant Church Directory do not access your members' data, except for specific troubleshooting purposes within the directory. All data provided by members is held securely and we do not use member information such as phone numbers or emails for marketing purposes (either internally or by selling the information to other organizations).

Data Storage and Security

Directory data is stored using a private cloud environment in a private data center (meaning it does not operate in a "share environment" with others). We use industry best practices for securing and backing up our servers and data, including proactive 24-7 monitoring of our services for possible intrusions.
