Your personal privacy is important to us! We still adhere to the Alberta Protection of Privacy Act for non-profits, and we do not provide the personal information of our Foothills Family or visitors to anyone.
REALM is the same database we have been using for years, just new and improved! This means that YOU now have access to your information and YOU control who sees it. Foothills Admin staff will continue to have the same access to the database as before, and only the information that is important for our jobs. (i.e. only the Accounting Team has access to your giving info).
If you choose, you can share your contact info with group leaders (think your small group leader, your kids' youth leaders, etc), or other people on REALM — but your information never leaves REALM. Your information is always protected by your password. The security REALM uses is the highest possible security available: it's the same security measures that banks use!
To log into REALM, each person needs an individual identifier. REALM does this by using emails. If you and your spouse share an account, we can't be sure if it's the husband or the wife who's signed up for the Women's Prayer Team! Please help our staff by ensuring you have your own separate account in REALM.
When you get your REALM invite, pay attention to the name on the invite — if you previously shared an email address with your spouse, REALM has dropped that email for one person, but kept it for the other. Here's how to fix that:
If you want communication from us via REALM to go to a shared email address, you can do that! Just set your 'Preferred Contact Email' as the same email address on both accounts.
REALM has opened up some doors for us to make it easier for you to give to what we're doing together at Foothills, including Text giving and recurring giving!
We're still working on rolling all of that out, but for now you can click here to give online now, or tap "Give" in the REALM Connect App!
