These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
Third party companies. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our services, to provide services on our behalf, or to assist us in analyzing how our services are used. Third party companies have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on behalf of Sovereign Grace Church and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
How Do We Use Your Information?
When you sign up for a particular service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. You may decline to submit personal information to any of our services, in which case Sovereign Grace Church may not be able to provide those services to you.
Your email address is only used for current and future Sovereign Grace Church program communications you’ve opted-in to receive. We never sell, share, or spam.
How Do We Share Your Information?
Sovereign Grace Church does not share your personal information with other institutions outside of Sovereign Grace Church. However, Sovereign Grace Church may share your personal information if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of Sovereign Grace Church, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.
Sovereign Grace Church takes commercially reasonable steps to implement appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These steps may include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. We restrict access to personal information to Sovereign Grace Church employees, volunteers, contractors and agents who need to know that information to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. Sovereign Grace Church is not responsible, however, if unauthorized access to information occurs.
We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.
We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Sovereign Grace Church and an individual.
