Joy Lutheran Church (JLC) recognizes that an individual's privacy is very important and that they have a right to control their personal information. JLC acknowledges that when an individual provides personal information about themselves to another party it is an act of trust. In response, JLC takes the process of upholding an individual's privacy very seriously. The following policy will govern how JLC handles an individual's personal information and safeguards their privacy.
The principles contained in this privacy document apply to all personal information collected or submitted to Joy Lutheran Church:
1. What information of yours does JLC collect?
We collect two different types of information. One type is voluntary information, which you provide, such as registration information for events, membership information or by registering under the My Joy section of the site. The other type of information JLC collects is user information provided by your computer each time you visit this site, such as IP address, browser.
2. What does JLC do with the information that is collected?
Any information that you provide to JLC or that is obtained through this web site may be used for church purposes. JLC will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to commercial entities. JLC 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.
3. What are "cookies" and how does JLC use them?
5. How does linking to other sites affect my privacy protections?
6. What type of security procedures are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your information?
The JLC web site has built-in security measures to protect your information from loss, misuse and alteration. We use industry-standard practices, such as encrypted storage and password protection systems, to safeguard the confidentiality of information.
7. How does JLC protect the privacy of children?
Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, photos of children will only be used with parental consent. If any services or features on the site require registration, a user 13 years old and younger will be required to provide the email of the parent or guardian which will allow us to notify that person that the child has registered for a service or feature. Parental or guardian consent will consist of an email from that person to JLC stating that they are aware that the child is using the web site. Identifying a user as 13 or under is not easy and JLC will not be held responsible for anyone misrepresenting as over 13 when in fact they are not.
8. JLC reserves the right to change, amend, or restate this policy.
9. Your affirmative consent to JLC’s collection and use of personally identifiable information.
By using JLC’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.
