Board had asked Jane to review Waynet's Privacy Policy (https://www.waynet.org/waynet/privacy.htm) And Terms of Service (https://www.waynet.org/waynet/termsofservice.htm)

She reported that unfortunately, we won't be able to use the free version of privacy and terms generators, as we collect quite a bit of information and use several 3rd party services, such as Google Analytics, Google Ads, MailChimp, JotForm, etc. that also collect information. Our social media sites are also connected and need to be considered.

She gave TermsFeed (https://www.termsfeed.com/) a quick run through and it looks like our policy will run us somewhere between $140 to $200.

  • Call for motion by Gillis King that Jane pursue Termsfeed
  • Seconded by: Bridget Hazelbaker and approved by Board

Jane reported that Waynet's Google analytics, were are going down on views, primary reason is that our web site is not mobile friendly.

It would cost us $15,000+ to be mobile compatible.

It was suggested that we might need to be sure to use more hashtags on social media posts.

Bridget reported that RHS uses Google calendars as it is more available to visitors to the page.

It was suggested we consider collaborating with another area group or members to see if any of them were looking into updating their web sites to be more mobile friendly and that we might share the expenses of hiring someone to update our website.

It was discussed and agreed that today it is all about photos and videos in order to draw more attention to your social media sites.

More discussion will be added to the next meeting on how to push us forward to be more apparent on social media and for the community
