PRIVACY POLICY

1

Definitions

 The Platform is intended for use by non-profit institutions and use of the Platform requires registration by an account administrator. We call those non-profit institutions as well as their administrators and registered users “Members.” Unregistered internet users that are merely browsing Platform sites are called “Visitors”. When we refer to both in this policy, we’ll use the term “you.” In using the Platform, Members are able to create websites that have their own respective users through which Members may collect information from third parties that use the Members’ websites. We call these Member websites “Your Websites” and the third parties that use those websites “Your Users”.

Your use of the Platform is also governed by our Terms of Use. Please read those terms carefully as well. We welcome any questions or comments you may have about this Privacy Policy and our privacy practices.

Analytics and Performance

We desire to see online church engagement increase throughout the world.

We publish or allow others to publish our insights but only in an aggregated form that does not disclose your personally identifiable information.

We use de-identified and aggregate user data to market the Platform, such as celebrating the total number of users across the Platform. We use data, including user-provided personal information, aggregations of user data, data collected through use of the Platform, public feedback and information inferred from this data to conduct internal research and development in order to provide a better overall Platform experience, measure the performance of the Platform and increase use of the Platform and its features. This is done by making changes to the Platform that are generally available, as well as sending users messages suggesting Platform functionality and content.
