What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected on this Site?

When you visit our website, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone numbers) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include: registering to receive e-mail newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. Grapeview Church does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request, but you will still be free to browse the website. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The Way We Use Information

When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). We do not share this information with outside parties.

 

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

 

Grapeview Church does not sell, rent, or give-away your information to outside sources. Some of your personal information is entered in 3rd party software (such as our database, or e-communications provider), solely for the purpose of achieving your desired intent.

 

Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, Grapeview Church will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain e-mail consent from you.

Our Commitment to Data Security

Personally identifiable information is stored on our computer database and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by Grapeview Church personnel on a “need to know” basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
