Cedar Grove Baptist Church recognizes that your privacy is very important to you and that you have a right to control your personal information. We acknowledge that when you provide personal information about yourself to another party it is an act of trust. In response, CGB takes the process of upholding an individual's privacy very seriously.
By using the Site you are giving us your express consent to use all the information that we collect about you in the manner described in this policy. This includes the release of such information to owners of each respective Site and third parties as described below.
COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
CGB collects two different types of information. One type is voluntary information, which you provide, such as registration information for events, membership information, or shipping and billing information. The other type of information CGB collects is user information provided by your computer each time you visit this site, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or browser. The information that CGB collects helps us to provide information and service to you. We may combine information from other sources with the information that we collect.
Any information that you provide to CGB or that is obtained through the Site may be used by CGB or the respective owners of the Site. While CGB will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to commercial entities, we may provide your information to third parties with whom we have a relationship to offer you products and services we believe may be of interest to you.
CGB may offer services to you such as chat rooms, message boards, or other similar discussion forums. Please be aware that any information you divulge in these arenas is deemed public information and is not protected.
COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data.
We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the Site, to learn about user behavior on the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. CGB may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
CGB shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information.
It may be necessary -- by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence -- for CGB to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our mission, our operations, or our users. Additionally, in the event of a transfer, reorganization, merger, or sale of the website, we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
CGB takes precautions - including administrative, technical and physical measures - to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
CGB uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where financial information is collected. When making donations to CGB or purchasing any products sold through our websites, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it's transmitted over the Internet.
When you use some CGB services or applications or post on a CGB forum, chat room or social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances.
