INFORMATION COLLECTION

Anonymous Browsing

When you browse Living Way’s web site without logging in or registering (“anonymous browsing”), we do not collect personal information automatically, including your email address. However, we do log the Internet address of your computer (your public “IP address”) to give us an idea of which parts of our web site you visit and how much time you spend there. This type of information helps us to improve our web site to best meet your needs. We do not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable, and unless you register on our site or attempt to contact us through our site, we do not know your personal identity.

Authenticated Browsing

When you browse Living Way’s web site after logging in or registering (“authenticated browsing”), we may be tracking the time and length of your page visits and any posting or uploading activity. This activity will be associated with your registered account username, your user profile, your email address, and the Internet address of your computer (your public “IP address”). This tracking enables us to protect users against activity that violates our Terms of Service and it also gives us an idea of which parts of our web site you visit and how much time you spend there. This helps us to improve our web site to best meet your needs. Living Way will never distribute or sell this information to any third parties.

CONTACT INFORMATION USE

Once you register on our site or enter contact information on our site, Living Way will not distribute, sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others without your consent. If you provide us with your email address, we may send you information related to this site or Living Way church. However, at no time will we share your email address, postal address, or telephone number with third parties. If you are a member of Living Way, meaning that you have applied for church membership and agreed to the church membership covenant, your contact information may be shared with the leaders, staff, pastors, and other members of Living Way. If you do not want us to contact you or have your information shared within Living Way, you can choose to “opt out” at any time and Living Way will not send you the information you have declined to receive and/or keep your contact information private.

DECLINING EMAIL COMMUNICATION

If you are sent an email communication or newsletter from Living Way, it will always tell you how to decline further emails.

COOKIE USAGE

“Cookies” are small files placed on your hard drive through your web browser. Each web site you visit can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser preferences allow it. You can configure most browsers to accept all cookies, reject all cookies or notify you when a cookie is set. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although this may affect the functionality of this web site and may prevent you from logging into a registered user account.

Living Way uses cookies to remember when you sign in to a registered user account on our web site so that we can provide you with customized information and services. We may also use cookies to tell us how and when pages in our web site are visited. However, if you do not have a user account on this web site, your cookies will not contain any personally identifiable information and any usage tracking will remain anonymous.

DATA SECURITY

Other than your IP address, no other personal information is automatically recorded onto our online server. However, manually submitted contact information is sent directly to Living Way personnel by email and is stored in a database on a private off-site server. This database is not publicly accessible and is only accessible to Living Way personnel.

Living Way takes appropriate steps to communicate our privacy policy and guidelines to all employees.

Living Way’s privacy policy is subject to change at any time.
