Privacy Statement
We respect and strive to protect your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Statement. We will take steps to use your personal information in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Statement. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages, newsletters, discussion lists and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by the Christian Church In Ohio ("Organization"). The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the following Web site: ("Christian Church In Ohio Network") .

What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
When you browse our Web site you do so anonymously. Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, which serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" ("IP") address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the Organization Network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the Organization Network, its users, and to cooperate with law enforcement agencies. See also " Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?" We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

Personal Information
Organization may request site visitors to complete surveys or questionnaires that we have posted on the Web site. The information collected will be used to enhance the services and features of the Site. Disclosure of personal information is optional and will not be shared with third parties.

What are cookies?
From time to time, Organization may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from our Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify which areas of Organization's Network you have visited or customized, so the next time you visit, those pages will be readily accessible. You can choose to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience on the Organization Network and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended. We will not allow other sites or third parties to use our cookies.

How do you use single-pixel gifs?
Organization may use single-pixel gif images, sometimes referred to as Web bugs or Web beacons, to count the number of users accessing our site Web page and gather general statistical information. Organization does not gather personal information through the use of these images.

What information do you collect when I register for something?
Organization offers access to some services that require registration. We may use your registration information to send notification to you of Organization products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We may also share that information with our clients. Our clients may send you promotional material relevant to the services for which you registered. We may also use your IP address internally and share it with third parties.

What other information do you request?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting surveys or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about conferences). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will indicate the purpose of the inquiry. We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy that means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third party, without your consent or as permitted by this Privacy Statement.

We may, from time to time, send e-mail announcing new Organization services based on registration. Except as stated above, Organization will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. If you choose to supply your postal address in an on-line form, you may receive postal mailings from Organization and other third party companies.

When you register for a contest or other promotion, we may ask for your name, address, and e-mail address so we can administer the contest and notify winners.

When you use co-branded services, or those provided by a third party, within the Organization Network, your information may be passed to the co-brand or third party provider. Their use of your information is subject to their applicable privacy policies. You are responsible for reading and understanding the privacy policies of any third parties who co-brand services.

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?
Organization will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or based upon a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Organization Web sites;
  • Protect and defend the rights or property of the Organization Network and related properties, and the rights or property of visitors to the Organization Network and related properties;
  • Identify persons who may be violating the law or the Organization Legal Notice, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the Organization Network or its related properties;
  • Fulfill a user's order or request.

Organization uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. However, please understand that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, therefore, you do so at your own risk.

Organization reserves the right to transfer all information disclosed to us in connection with the sale of all or part of Organization's capital stock or assets. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of third parties that receive the information. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of third parties.

What else should I know about my privacy when on-line?

Organization is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party Web sites or advertisers.
