Our Commitment to Privacy
What Information Do We Collect?
In general, you can visit this website without identifying who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Information collected online can generally be categorized as anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be connected to the identity of a specific individual. Personally identifiable information is information that specifically identifies a particular user, such as name, address, or phone number. An example of anonymous information is the fact that, while this website may record the number of visits to a particular page that occur in a given period of time, it does not necessarily tell us the names or other identifying information of every visitor. Many users of this website will choose not to provide any personally identifiable information; therefore, those individuals are anonymous to us, and any data collected about their use of this website is anonymous information.
When you visit our site, we collect certain technical and routing information about your computer. For example, we log environmental variables such as browser type, operating system and CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your originating Internet Service Provider, to try to bring you the best possible service. We also record search requests and results to try to ensure the accuracy and efficiency of our search engine. We use your IP address to track your use of the site, including pages visited and the time spent on each page. We collect this information and use it to measure the use of this website and to improve its content and performance. In order to provide you with services and/or products you have requested or to minister to you, we also collect information regarding subscriptions, prayer needs, forms, past transactions you have had with us, and personally identifiable information.
How Do We Use Information We Collect?
We collect personally identifiable information only for providing the services you request, generating statistical studies, to minister to you, improving products and services, and notifying you of ministry services and products and any other changes to our site or services that may affect you. When you submit personally identifiable information to us, you understand that you are agreeing to allow us to access, store, and use that information for those purposes.
We will not sell or give any personally identifiable information to any third parties.
If at any time you do not wish to receive offers and e-mails from us, we ask that you tell us. You may remove your name from our mailing list by sending us an e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicating in the subject line “No Offers or E-mail”. If we are collecting information about you that you do not wish us to have, use, or share, you may “opt out” by either calling [toll free number] or emailing us at email@example.com. You may also write to us at [address]. Alternatively, you may use the opt out form on this website.
We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the personally identifiable information provided by our users. We do not, however, guarantee that unauthorized, inadvertent disclosure will never occur.
If you email us, please note that we do not use encryption to protect the transmission and sharing of information and as such, is not secured against interception.
Phishing and Pretexting
As you know, consumers are increasingly targeted by unscrupulous persons attempting to acquire sensitive personal or financial information, by impersonating legitimate businesses. We will never send you an unsolicited email or other communication requesting your private information. If you receive a communication directing you to enter you personal information, please disregard the instruction and contact us immediately at [include contact information].
Transfer of Partner Information
Partner lists and information are properly considered assets of a business. Accordingly, if we merge with another entity or if we sell our assets to another entity, our Partner lists and information, including personally identifiable information you have provided us, would be included among the assets that would be transferred.
