1. WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The Church does not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us, by, for example, filling out a survey or registration form or sending us an e-mail message. The types of information that may be requested include your name, address, occupation, etc.
The Church may collect aggregate, non-personal information about its users and their usage of this web site and any related services. This information is not used to identify any individual user.
You understand that any information that you divulge in the public areas of this web site, including the newsletters, news alerts, or other areas, is public information and is not kept confidential by the Church. Please use discretion when posting information to the public areas of this and any other web site.
Information from Children:
The Church does not collect personable, identifiable information about children who view this web site who are under eighteen (18) years of age. From time to time, the Church may offer on-line registration for such programs as Vacation Bible School, or other programs which will facilitate the participation in these activities. In these instances, the Church requires such registration to be completed by the youth’s parent or legal guardian.
2. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
In general, the Church will only use the information you provide to us for the purpose for which such information is provided.
In general, the Church will only provide your personally identifiable information to external parties when you have specifically consented to it via an “opt-in” process. This information will only be used for the purposes for which it was collected.
External companies may be provided aggregate information about our users. Aggregate information is statistically relevant information based on the overall population of the user community. This information cannot be traced back to a specific individual.
The Church services may be offered in conjunction with other persons. These are called co-branded services. In order to provide these co-branded services to you, it will be necessary for us to share information with other persons. If you don’t want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service.
Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts:
Although The Church will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. The Church will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
Required by Law:
In extreme cases, where required by law or the court, the Church may be forced to release information regarding users of our web site to permit the investigation of fraud, illegal use of the Internet or other cases of misconduct on our web site.

3. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
Any information provided to the Church is treated with care and discretion. When information is shared, the Church will take a proactive approach to ensure the information is kept private and not misused. Additionally, when external entities are provided information, the Church will, in good faith, make an effort to ensure that the third party complies with all the privacy policies of the Church.
When you submit personal information to the Church the level of encryption is identified on the form, page, or service through which you submitted said information. You must use care in determining if the level of encryption is satisfactory to your needs.
4. YOUR CONTROL OF YOUR INFORMATION
If at any time you wish to stop receiving certain types of information, you can elect to do so by sending an email to [email address to be determined ]. You can also choose to delete your profile from our active database by either using the online system or by emailing us at the same address. Unfortunately, the Church may not be able to delete other types of information, such as aggregate or stored information.
