At Everyday Church Online, we collect different types of information about our users for the following main reasons:
1. To provide a useful resource in the form of an online directory for church partners.
2. To provide an interactive website where email is used to communicate with users.
3. To provide a security mechanism whereby we can restrict content to certain groups of users.
4. To help us to improve the service we offer.
We are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy. Our policy can be summarised in one sentence: we will not share your information with others without your consent.
We have established the following two principles:
1. We will respect your email privacy. You will only receive email from Everyday Church Online in relation to areas you have expressly signed up for. All church partners automatically receive our regular e-news email - however, should you wish to unsubscribe from this, you can do so at any time via the instructions at the bottom of the e-news email.
2. We will not share any individual user details (including your email address) to any third party without your consent.
We collect information on users through registration.
The minimum information we need to register a user is your first and last name, your email address and a password. We also ask for some further, voluntary information so that we can provide a fuller and more useful members directory.
You have control over whether or not your details are included in the online members directory. If included only other church members can see this information; it is not public. Everyday Church Online staff and website administrators will still be able to view your information if you opt out of the members directory.
Remember to close your web-browser when you have finished your session, and if you have logged on as a user, always log out before closing the browser. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence, and is particularly important when using a public computer (i.e. in a library, internet cafe, or in a shared office). You as an individual are responsible for the security of, and access to, your own computer.
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information over the Internet that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information in publicly accessible online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your usernames, passwords and any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are using the Internet.
