Special Rules for Children

On some of our Websites, we may occasionally host or offer access or activities where no Personal Information is collected or posted, and thus children may engage without our knowledge.  However, we do not intentionally or knowingly allow Personal Information (name, address, telephone number, or email address) to be collected from anyone under the age of 18. If you believe that we might have any Personal Information from or about anyone under the age of 18, please contact us immediately. In the event we learn that we collected Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18, we will delete that Personal Information as quickly as possible.

Public Forums and User-Submitted Content

As a user of our Websites, you will have opportunities to interact with us and other users through providing “User-Submitted Content.”  For example, you may wish to participate in a social networking discussion (subject to the terms of use of the specific website/forum); comment on an article or blog; share a personal anecdote or testimony; provide a product review; or upload special material, such as photos.  These forums may be operated by us or by an outside group, but we maintain the right to monitor, edit, remove, and/or refuse User-Submitted Content at our sole discretion and in accordance with our terms of use and this Privacy Policy.

It is important for you to understand that whatever you post may be accessible to the public. Please exercise caution and do not include Personal Information when you choose to provide User-Submitted Content on our Websites.  We are not responsible for any unsolicited messages you receive from other parties as a result of your posts. When you provide User-Submitted Content, you are granting us an unlimited, perpetual, royalty-free, and worldwide license and all necessary rights to use or modify your User-Submitted Content for our ministry and promotional purposes, at our sole discretion.

Third-Party Websites and Information

Our Websites may contain links to other websites that are run by third parties – such as other organizations, sponsors, content providers, and advertisers.  Once you’ve clicked on a link or button activator for an outside website, you will leave our Websites and be taken to sites that we do not control. This means that your activity on such sites is subject to the privacy policies and terms of use of third parties.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third-party websites.

Cookies and Technology

Our Websites may use cookies to keep track of website activities, save your password or deliver content specific to your interests.  A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them.  A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited.  You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser.  Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.  If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience certain interactive features of our Websites or access all of the services provided through our Websites.

Demographic and profile data may also be collected on our Websites.


When we collect your Personal Information, we employ industry-standard security measures, including technical, administrative, and physical security steps to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of Personal Information under our control.  For example, our Websites may use a Secured Socket Layer (SSL) server, which enables us to protect the Personal Information you provide during transactions (such as when you download materials, participate in certain programs, purchase resources, register for events, make donations, etc). We also use technology to protect your credit card number when we store your order and whenever we transfer that Personal Information to participating merchants or service providers (including your financial institution). We cannot guarantee that the security measures we implement in connection with the operation of our Websites will absolutely prevent others from accessing or acquiring any Personal Information that you provide to us when you are visiting our Websites.

You can also do some things to help protect the security of your Personal Information.  For instance, you should never give out your account information (user ID, password) since this provides access to your account Personal Information.  Also, remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you finish visiting our Website so that other people using the same computer will not have access to your Personal Information.
