- All prospective members of the FB-ISAO are vetted to ensure that members are U.S. Citizens, legitimate faith-based organizations and that they do not support, espouse or otherwise promote hate of any kind. Prospective members must provide the name and contact information for an HR or supervisory person within the organization they are employed by or support (i.e., the house or worship you work for or volunteer at). Members also need to provide information on country of citizenship. Membership may be denied and/or revoked any time if any member is in violation of this provision. Our vetting policy is available on our website.
- Confidential Information. Both parties may, in connection with these Policies, disclose to the other party information considered confidential or proprietary information of the disclosing party (“Confidential Information”). Information shall be considered Confidential Information if marked confidential or proprietary, identified as confidential in nature by the disclosing party at the time of disclosure, or which by its nature is normally considered confidential or provides the disclosing party with a competitive advantage. Confidential Information includes, and is not limited to, member Information and the specific terms and conditions of these Policies. The receiving party shall protect the disclosing party’s Confidential Information with the same degree of care that it regularly uses to protect its own Confidential Information from unauthorized use or disclosure, but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care.

The receiving party may also disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by applicable federal, state or local law, regulation, court order, or other legal process, provided the receiving party has given the disclosing party prior written notice of such required disclosure, unless prohibited by law or regulation, and, to the extent reasonably possible, has given the disclosing party an opportunity to contest such required disclosure at the disclosing party’s expense.
