What Information Do We Collect and How?
We collect a variety of information about you when you use our website, some of it collected directly from you, and some of it collected in a more passive or automated way through our website. The information includes the following:
Forms on My Site
I collect personally identifying information like your email address, your website URL and your Internet Protocol (IP) addresses when you submit a form. I don’t make this information available and if I don’t need the data, I don’t collect it on the form. I use your personally identifying information like your email address to reach back to you and reply to your questions.
If you make a purchase on my site, you require me to gather personally identifying information. But I limit how much and what type of information that I gather depending on the nature of the interaction. If you buy an online course or eBook, I collect personal and financial information required to process your purchase and pass it to my payment gateway – Stripe (more details on their privacy policies can be found here). In each case, I only collect what I need to deliver what you’re requesting. And I don’t disclose that information in any ways other than how I articulate them here in this policy.
My Partners and Your Data
Google Analytics – Your browsing data, navigational paths, and time of visit are being captured but anonymized.
ActiveCampaign– Your email is being captured when you proactively subscribe using forms on my site. You can change / unsubscribe via every email you get.
Vimeo / YouTube – I enable embedded videos on my site. These sites may capture browser and IP data, but are never passed additional personally identifying data (like your name/email) from me.
Gloo – GlooConnect is a product that creates social media ads for the people you want to connect to your church and the services that you offer. If you sign-up on our website to receive more information about GlooConnect, we will share only the information you provide with this partner.
Hyros – Your browsing data, navigational paths, and purchases are being captured.
How We Use Information We Collect from You
We may use the information described above for the following purposes, as permitted by applicable law:
- To enable you to access and use our website.
- To respond to your inquiries and requests.
- To send you information regarding our services, changes to our terms, conditions and policies, and/or other administrative information.
- For our management, evaluation and administration of our website and online services, such as data analysis, audits, and general improvement and evaluation of our website and online services.
- To develop new products and services.
- To perform our obligations and exercise our rights under any agreement that you or your organization concluded with us.
I only share your personal information in order to process certain purchases where I may be using an employee, contractor or partner to help me fulfill your requests. These individuals/businesses have agreed to not disclose it to others. I don’t rent or sell your personally identifying information to anyone, including any partners I may be using (which are listed in the section above).
For individuals in the European Economic Area (EEA), your data may be transferred outside of the EEA. Where your personal data is transferred outside the EEA, it will only be transferred to countries that have been identified as providing adequate protection for EEA data or to a third party where we have approved transfer mechanisms in place to protect your personal data – i.e., by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, or by ensuring the entity is Privacy Shield certified (for transfers to US-based third parties). For further information, please contact me using the details set out in the “Contact me” section below.
It’s your personal data and you have certain rights relating to it. When it comes to marketing communications, you can ask me not to send you these at any time – by following the unsubscribe instructions contained in the marketing communication, or send your request to the email below, in the “Contact me” section.
Depending on your country you may have right or choice to:
- Access your personal data, update it, restrict or object to its processing, or request its deletion (see below)
- Receive the personal data you provided to transmit it to another company
- Withdraw any consent provided
- Where applicable, lodge a complaint with your supervisory authority
The length of time I keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether I have an ongoing business need to retain it (for example, to provide you with a service you’ve requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).
I’ll retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of time afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it, in accordance with our data retention policies and practices. Following that period, I’ll delete or anonymize it.
You can exercise these rights at any time by sending me an email. See the “Contact me” section below.
If you’re not happy with how I am processing your personal data, please let me know by sending an email. I will review and investigate your complaint and get back to you within a reasonable time frame.
Protecting Your Data
I am doing everything I can and know of to reasonably protect against any unauthorized access or use of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.
