CIL Meet Livestreams
We operate a Livestream service on the CIL Website (called 'CIL Meet'). This service enables Christadelphian Ecclesias and Organisations to securely and privately broadcast meetings and events. and to facilitate online meetings or discussions.
You do not have to participate in a CIL Meet livestream when you use the CIL Website, you can still use the other website facilities. However, if you do participate in how your data is shared is set out below.
Depending on the livestream settings for the specific livestream, sharing of audio and video may happen automatically when you enter the room. Additionally, you may have the option to share your screen (for example to share a presentation).
There are different types of CIL Meet Room, and the way your data is managed for each type is described below. The room type is shown on the CIL Meet page and the organisation / ecclesial pages where the rooms are listed.
Classic CIL Meet Rooms (Broadcast or Discussion Rooms)
If you are joining or publishing in a 'Discussion' or 'Broadcast' room, your online presence will be shared with other participants and publishers of the livestream (and only of the livestreams that you join). The following information will be made available to others joining the room:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Your Ecclesia
- Your picture (if you have added one to your user profile)
- If you are baptised
If you are participating in a livestream broadcast (where a presentation or service is streamed from one or two publishers, usually the ecclesia or those running the event, to others watching remotely), unless you are a publisher you will not be able to share audio or video from your webcam or computer screen.
Some Broadcast or Discussion rooms are automatically recorded, this will be indicated on the CIL Meet page and the organisation / ecclesial pages where the rooms are listed.
Google Meet and Microsoft Teams rooms
If you are joining a Google Meet or Microsoft Teams room, then your online presence will be shared with other participants of session. Your personal data will be used to facilitate the session and if you have a Google or Microsoft account you may use it to join the room or you may need to enter your name to join as a guest. Please see "sharing your personal data" below for further information.
You will be given the option to turn your video and audio off before entering the room, and additionally you may have the option to share your screen (for example to share a presentation).
The room owner may choose to record the session. The room owner may also choose to include additional attendees who are not registered on the CIL Website and should make you aware if this is the case.
Room Key access
Google Meet and Microsoft Teams rooms can be made available to access to those who do not have a CIL Website account via the use of a room key issued to the individual by the room owner, and a special web address used to access the room with the room key.
No personal data is collected in the validation of the room key, however when you are then forwarded to the Google Meet or Microsoft Teams meeting you will need to either log in using Microsoft or Google authentication or provide your name in order to join the meeting. The information provided by you at this point is directly with Google or Microsoft and not with the CIL, however limited information may be available to us as owners of the Google Workspace or Microsoft Tenancy we have set up to run these meetings, as per the standard terms and conditions with the platform owners.
All Meet Rooms
The organisers / publishers of a livestream should make the participants present physically at the event aware that they may be in the livestream footage and may be recorded. Your presence on the Livestream may also be announced during the event.
Some CIL Meet rooms have a telephone dial in facility. If you join using this your phone number is processed by the CIL Meet system and may be displayed to other participants in the room. CIL Meet room owners should make participants joining only by telephone aware of this when providing the room phone number to them. Please contact the CIL Meet room owner regarding this if you have any concerns.
CIL Meet livestream rooms are only accessible privately, they are not made public. Livestream rooms may also require a one off access request to the room owner be made. The form for this access request will be provided and the data captured within the CIL Website. The data you provide will be made available to the owners (eg the Ecclesia or Christadelphian Organisation) of the livestream room to support the access request. The data will be the same as listed above, with additional answers to questions that will support your access request, set by the owners of the livestream room.
When you go to the CIL Meet Room page on the CIL Website, a record is kept for 4 months and is available to the room owners / administrators for the purpose of recording meeting attendance, should they wish to do so.
We may from time to time offer registration for events on the website, for example for gatherings or youth weeks. We collect your name, home address, date of birth, phone, email and travel arrangements in order to coordinate the event capacity and to contact you about the event or to let you know should we need to cancel or reschedule the event. This information will be deleted from our website servers within a month of the event completing, and we will ask you personally if you wish contact to be maintained with you so that you can be invited to other similar events.
Sharing your personal data
Your first name, last name, email address and user id is shared with MailChimp, who provide email distribution services and are acting as a Data Processer on our behalf. We share this data in order to send you website service announcements, and if you opt-in, regular email updates.
MailChimp uses its affiliates and a range of third party sub-processors to assist it in providing the services.
Should your CIL Website account be cancelled your information is removed from the MailChimp service, including their affiliates and third party sub-processors.
We, MailChimp or MailChimp’s affiliates and third party sub-processors will never disclose or sell your personal information to third parties. We will only use your information for the purposes outlined above.
To facilitate the CIL Meet livestreaming service for Broadcast or Discussion room types we have partnered with Tokbox Inc (owned by Vonage Holdings Corp). Your username, first name, last name, ecclesia and if you are baptised is securely encrypted into a token and used to securely authenticate your access to the room session.
To facilitate the CIL Meet livestreaming service for Google Meet rooms we have partnered with Google LLC. Your email address is used to create a Google Calendar event via secure authentication and encryption techniques. The event is created using a CIL controlled Google account provided for the organisation / ecclesia. The calendar event attendees are only visible to those with access to the Google account (typically the room owners).
To facilitate the CIL Meet livestreaming service for Microsoft Teams room types we have partnered with Microsoft Corporation. Your email address, first name and last name may be used (depending on the room setup) to provide you access to the CIL Meet Microsoft Tenancy. This is simply used to enable secure access to the livestream and to show your presence to others in the livestream.
