Your privacy is important to us. At Bethel we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Like most website operators, Bethel collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Bethel may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, we may track the frequency of pages viewed or links clicked in aggregate. Bethel may display this information publicly or provide it to others; however, Bethel does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Bethel discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, volunteers and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Bethel’s behalf, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Bethel’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Bethel will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, volunteers and affiliated organizations, as described above, Bethel discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Bethel believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bethel, third parties or the public at large. If you’ve signed up for our newsletter we will send you email to keep up to date with what’s going on at Bethel. Unsubscribe instructions are included in each email, or you can contact the church office to unsubscribe.
