Why Do We Collect This Information?
The data that we capture from our website will in no way be shared or sold to any third party. Access to personal information within the ministry is closely monitored and available on a need to know basis only.
The collected data is used in two ways:
Aggregate Information: All data that we collect regarding your usage of the site is summarized (aggregated) into reports to help us improve the site. We in no way use the data to track your personal usage of the site. The only exception to this is the use of login statistics when accessing your account to view your giving information. This only applies to users who have elected to create a user name and password.
All personal data that you provide through the site (i.e. name, address, credit card or banking information when submitting online donations) will be used only for its intended purpose.
The security of the information that you provide to us is very important to us. Hence, we have taken several measures to protect your information. All transactions involving sensitive information, such as your credit/debit card number, are conducted using a SSL (Secure Socket Layer protocol) connection. This connection provides increased security to the information as it is transmitted to our website. We will only use your credit/debit card number for the processing of our donation and online store sales. This information is transferred securely to our Credit/Debit Card processor and IS NOT stored anywhere on the HurstBaptist.com and Hurst Baptist Church systems or networks. Other sensitive information that we may collect will not be disclosed to third parties unless we are required to do so by law.
