Web Site Guidelines

In order to provide a level of professionalism to our Lodge Web Site, the Lodge Publications Committee attempts to adhere to the following guidelines:
  • The appropriate OA leadership must have direct control over the content of its official web site (i.e. the Key 3 at each level of the organization).
  • The content of the OA site must be appropriate to the Scouting movement and the Order of the Arrow. Safeguarded information such as ceremony details must be properly protected.
  • The OA site shall not contain any advertisements or commercial endorsements, except those for the organization providing the site service if it is provided for free or at a discount.
  • The OA site shall not engage in the electronic sale of BSA Supply Division merchandise, merchandise commissioned by the National Order of the Arrow Committee, or competing products.
  • The OA site shall not contain any links directly to any sites that contain material that is not appropriate to the Scouting movement.
  • The OA site shall not replicate any BSA publication currently for sale through the Supply Division.
  • The OA site must abide by all laws regarding copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property.
  • The OA site must consider the safety and privacy of their participants by obtaining necessary permissions to release information about or identifying images of any specific individual.
  • The OA site should include an email contact address for reaching the person managing the site, so visitors can report any problems or concerns.
