Core Church, Inc. (“Core Church”) operates corechurchla.org and lauriesblog.corechurchla.org. It is Core Church’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Core Church 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. Core Church’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Core Church’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Core Church may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Core Church also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Core Church blogs. Core Church only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Core Church’s websites choose to interact with Core Church in ways that require Core Church to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Core Church gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a newsletter to provide their name and mailing address. Those who make contributions to Core Church – by donating online via credit card, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Core Church collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Core Church. Core Church does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Core Church may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Core Church may monitor the most popular posts on lauriesblog.corechurchla.org or the most popular sermons on corechurchla.org. Core Church may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Core Church does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Core Church 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 Core Church’s behalf or to provide services available at Core Church’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, volunteers, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Core Church’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Core Church 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, Core Church discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Core Church believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Core Church, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Core Church website and have supplied your email address, Core Church may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Core Church and our ministries. We primarily use our various blogs and webpages to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Core Church takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
