Privacy Policy

Ascension Alcohol Policy

Cognizant of the Episcopal Church’s commitment to becoming a church where conversations about alcohol, substance misuse, and addiction reflect renewal, wholeness, justice, and healing, and its commitment to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all people, including people in recovery, the Episcopal Church of the Ascension, Knoxville Tennessee, adopts the following alcohol use policy.

  1. All use of alcohol in or associated with worship services shall be carefully supervised by the Rector, with specific attention to modeling appropriate behavior, instructing parishioners and guests as to the efficacy of receiving the sacrament in one kind, and avoiding over-consumption.
  2. Recognizing its mood-altering effects, alcohol shall not be served whenever church business is to be conducted.
  3. Service of alcohol at any church-sponsored events outside of parishioners’ homes must be approved by the rector in advance, and must always be accompanied by food, water, and appealing non-alcoholic beverages.
  4. Whenever minors are present, alcohol must be served at a separate location apart from non-alcoholic beverages, must be clearly labeled, and must be monitored so as to avoid misuse.
  5. Alcohol served on church property shall be limited to beer and wine.
  6. Whenever alcohol is served, the rector must appoint an adult to oversee its service. Individuals showing signs of over-consumption shall not be served. The appointed adult must not consume alcohol while overseeing its use.
  7. Sponsors of events must be prepared to provide alternative transportation to anyone whose capacity to drive may be impaired.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online

services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to

require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that

operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California

consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the

information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to

comply with this policy. – See more at:

which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect

children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the

United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the

Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to

comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

responsive action, should a data breach occur:

to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable

rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a

government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data
