What about Online Advertising?
We promote and encourage support of our ministry activities and resources by occasionally using advertising space on third-party websites including Re-marketing with Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel / Custom Audiences. When you visit some websites, we or a third party may place one or more types of cookies on your computer in order to recognize your computer. Because we advertise about our ministry activities on third-party websites, we are able to compile anonymous information over time about the types of pages, content, and ads you or others who use your computer visited or viewed. This anonymous information is used for many purposes. For example, it helps us try to ensure that you do not see the same advertisements repeatedly. We also use this anonymous information to help select and display targeted advertisements on third-party websites that encourage support of our ministry activities.
We use non-personally identifiable information from interest based advertising or audience data from third parties (such as age, gender, and interests) to get a broad understanding of the demographics of our website audience.
Third-party companies also may collect anonymous information about your activity on our websites and applications and on third-party websites and applications using online tracking technologies, such as cookies and web beacons. Tracking data collected by these third-party companies is used to decide which advertisements you see on third-party websites and applications, but does not identify you personally.
This data collection is through Google’s Display Advertising (e.g., Re-marketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, or Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting). Third-party vendors, including Google, may show these ads on sites across the Internet.
Together with third-party vendors, including Google, we may use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) to report how our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to our site.
You may choose not to receive targeted advertisements from many ad networks, data exchanges, marketing analytics and other service providers by visiting the Ad Preferences Manager.
Our web site may use SessionCam for analysis. SessionCam is a product that has been developed by SessionCam LTD. SessionCam may record mouse clicks, mouse movements, page scrolling and any text keyed into website forms. The information collected does not include bank details or any sensitive personal data. Data collected by SessionCam from Faith and Life Fellowship Ministries website is for Faith and Life Fellowship Ministries internal use only. The information collected is used to improve our website usability and is stored and used for aggregated and statistical reporting.
Linking to Other Websites
Our website may contain links to other websites. To allow you to interact with third-party websites on which you may have accounts (such as social media websites) or join communities on such websites, we may provide links or embed third-party applications that allow you to login, post content, or join communities from our websites.
Why Do We Collect and Use Personal Information?
The personal information collected through our website is used and disclosed for our ministry purposes. For example, we may collect, use and disclose your personal information to:
- Establish, maintain and manage our relationship with you and fulfill orders that have been requested;
- Be able to review the products and services that we provide to you so that we may work to improve our ministries;
- Be able to comply with your requests;
- Protect us against error, fraud, theft and damage to our property; and
- Enable us to comply with applicable law or regulatory process (for example, we may collect personal information to satisfy the obligations imposed on us by various regulators).
- Communicate with you about our ministry and resources which may be of interest to you.
We do not sell, rent or lease your personal information to other organizations. In order to fulfill the ministry and organizational purposes for which you provided us your personal information, it may be shared with our web team who require such information to assist us with establishing, maintaining and managing our relationship with you and providing ministry products and services. Where your personal information is provided, we use confidentiality agreements that restrict the use of your information to the purpose for which it is provided.
Please note that we may collect, use or disclose your publicly-available personal information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements to do so.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
FLFM maintains safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to prevent your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification or disclosure.
FLFM uses Internet Encryption Software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card or banking information. Any information you enter is encrypted at your browser, sent over the public Internet in encrypted form, and then de-crypted at STRIPE’s server. Once we receive your credit card information, it is accessible only to STRIPE. Credit card information is only stored on our servers, in encrypted form, for the length of time needed for a specific transaction (extremely minimal). For example, credit card information for online purchases and one-time online donations are passed directly to the credit card processing center immediately and is not stored on our servers at all.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once this website receives your transmission, we make every reasonable effort to ensure its security on our systems. The security of your personal information is important to us. Please advise us immediately of any incident involving the loss of or unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal information that is in our custody or control.
Updating Your Personal Information
It is important that the information contained in our records is both accurate and current. If your personal information (e-mail, name, address) changes, please keep us informed of such changes. We will replace or append your accounts with the updated information.
