Privacy Policy

Christian Fellowship Church (CFC) recognizes that an individual's privacy is very important to them and that they have a right to control their personal information. CFC acknowledges that when an individual provides personal information about themselves to another party it is an act of trust. In response, CFC takes the process of upholding an individual's privacy very seriously. Unless an individual gives CFC explicit consent to act otherwise, the following policy will govern how CFC handles an individual's personal information and safeguards their privacy.

1. What information of yours does CFC collect?

CFC collects two different types of information. One type is voluntary information, which you provide, such as registration information for events, membership information, or billing information. The other type of information CFC collects is user information provided by your computer each time you visit this site, such as IP address, cookies, and webpage(s) you visit. The information that CFC collects helps us to provide information and service to you. We may combine information from other sources with the information that we collect.

2. What does CFC do with the information that is collected?

Any information that you provide to CFC or that is obtained through this web site may be used for church purposes and to provide the best possible experience for visitors and members of CFC. CFC will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to commercial entities. CFC will not disclose your name, address, e-mail address or phone number without your express consent, unless disclosure is necessary to comply with laws or relevant legal proceedings. CFC may offer services to you such as 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.

3. What are "cookies" and how does CFC use them?

Cookies are information that a web site transfers to an individual's PC for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can save your preferences when you are at a site. The use of cookies is an industry standard and most major web sites use them. CFC may use cookies to help us see which areas of our web site are more popular, which are not, how they are being used so that we can improve and update our website to more accurately meet the needs of our users. At some point in the future, if CFC decides to offer personalized services to its users, we will use cookies to make that personalization and customization of the CFC web site possible.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to either refuse all cookies or to notify you when you are receiving a cookie and allow you to decide whether or not to accept it.

We do not use cookies to obtain any personal information about you before or after you leave the CFC sites.

4. How does linking to other sites affect my privacy protections?

As a courtesy, CFC may provide links to other sites that are neither owned nor controlled by CFC. Some of these sites may use the CFC logo. These third party sites, however, are NOT subject to or bound by the CFC Privacy Policy. Such third party sites may or may not have their own privacy policies and may or may not collect personal information from you or place cookies on your browser. CFC is not responsible for the privacy policies or any information collection practices of these sites or any damages resulting therefrom.

5. What type of security procedures are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your information?

The security of the information that you provide to us is very important to us. Consequently, we have taken measures to protect your information. As an organization that accepts debit and credit card payments, CFC maintains PCI compliance per the requirements set forth by the PCI Security Standards Council. CFC does not collect or retain any sensitive information, such as your credit/debit card number and expiration date, on our website. Any payments you make to CFC are processed on third party websites which maintain their own privacy policies and security measures. Any personal information (name, address, etc.) entered on forms on the CFC site will be used only in the manner described in this policy.

6. How are children protected on CFC’s website?

CFC encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children online. No information may be submitted to or posted on CFC’s web site by users 13 years old and younger. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, CFC will not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever for our users 13 years and younger. In the case of event registrations (i.e. VBS, student camps and retreats), a user 13 years old and younger will be required to have their parent complete the registration for them. Identifying a website user as 13 or under is not easy and CFC will not be held responsible for anyone misrepresenting themselves as over 13 when in fact they are not.

7. CFC reserves the right to change, amend, or restate this policy.
8. Your affirmative consent to CFC’s collection and use of personally identifiable information.

By using CFC’s website, you are giving us your express consent to use all the information that we collect about you in the manner described in this policy.
