Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy addresses the West Shore Evangelical Free Church (“WSEFC” or “WSFC”) policies and practices with respect to personally-identifiable information collected by the WSEFC through WSEFC websites. Protecting your privacy is important to us. We want you to understand what information we collect, how we use it, and the steps we take to protect that information.

Information we collect

There are different ways we collect information from visitors on WSEFC websites.

  1. Requests for information (i.e. E-mail newsletters, contact forms, etc.)
  2. Requests for materials from our organization
  3. Donations
  4. Event registrations
  5. Household information

At the instruction of you, the constituent or donor, we collect personally-identifiable information on the forms we receive from you and in connection with the registrations or donations you conduct with us. This information may include, among other things, your first and last name, address, city, state, ZIP/postal code, e-mail address, telephone number, and other information that permits us to contact you either electronically or by other means, to maintain and store this information, and process event registrations or the requested donations as instructed by you, the constituent or donor to perform financial registrations or donations. Any stored information is stored securely.

We do not directly collect or store any payment information, such as credit card information, as these transactions are only collected by payment processing partners and are processed in secure environments according to credit card processing industry standards.

Information the website collects automatically

The WSEFC uses standard non-personally identifiable information about a constituent or donor’s computer including IP address and browser version. We do use cookies for improved site functionality and visitor tracking purposes.

Access to personal information

You may request to review, update, or have deleted any personal information collected from you on WSEFC websites. To do so, please contact us via one of the options listed below asking to review or update your personal information, or to have us delete your personal information. We reserve the right, however, to retain personal information as necessary to comply with federal and state laws.

Children’s privacy

We do not knowingly collect personally-identifiable information from children under age thirteen online. If you believe a child under the age of thirteen has submitted personally-identifiable information to us, please contact us via one of the options listed below providing details about the submission of the data and we will delete the personally-identifiable information from our databases.

We only collect personally-identifiable information about children under age thirteen, only with consent and only when provided by legal guardian or custodian, for the purpose of updating household information and event or classroom registrations.

Information we disclose

We do not disclose any personally-identifiable information about our constituents and donors or former constituents and donors to anyone outside of our organization, except as permitted or required by law. For example, personally-identifiable information may be disclosed to third parties providing essential services to us who have contracted to maintain the confidentiality and security of the information, or to law enforcement personnel pursuant to proper authority.

Response and security

We limit access to personally-identifiable information about our constituents and former constituents and donors to those employees who need to know that information to perform their job responsibilities. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard the nonpublic personal information of our constituents and donors and former constituents and donors.
