Minister Ty Alexander

Simple Privacy Policy: Any personal contact information or passwords you give on this site are secured and will never be sold to Third Parties, nor will they be shared to Third Parties except if legally obligated to as noted below.

Detailed Privacy Policy: Effective 2018 August 31

Since your privacy is a priority, we will not share or sell information about you to third parties without your consent, except as explained below.

Responsible Party
This web site and policy is administered by Christ Hephzibah Church, United States.

About this Privacy Policy
We want you to understand what information we may gather and how it is secured. This policy explains our collection, use, retention, and security of information about you.

You will not receive newsletters or marketing material from us unless you opt-in, such as by submitting a mailing list registration form or making a donation.

Withdrawing Consent and Data
You may opt-out of newsletters or marketing material you receive from us. You may also request your personal information be removed from our records. However, removing your information will also remove access to exclusive content, if you were required to opt-in or register for it.

How We Gather Information
As part of providing you with products or services, we may obtain information about you from the following sources:
  • Applications, forms, and other information that you provide to us, whether through this site, in writing, in person, by telephone, electronically or by any other means;
  • Your transactions with us.

Disclosure and Third Party Sharing of Information
We do not provide information about you to any external party unless you authorize us to do so, except when we are required to without your consent, as required by law, such as,
  • to respond to a subpoena or court order, judicial process, or regulatory authorities;
  • to consumer reporting agencies;
  • in connection with a proposed or actual sale, merger, or transfer of all or a portion of a business or an operating unit;
  • to protect against fraud.

Security Practices
We take steps to safeguard customer information. We restrict access to the personal and account information of our customers to those employees who need to know that information in the course of their job responsibilities. We maintain physical and electronic safeguards to protect customer information.

We use firewalls to protect our systems from entry by anyone without proper authorization. A firewall is a security mechanism that regulates the data going in and out of a network or computer. It is a commonly used, specialized computer, network device, or program that acts as a shield against data going in or out of a network or computer. It checks to make sure that communications only occur between approved individuals and that the communication is in the proper protocol.

Technology Used in the Online Collection of Information/Cookies
We may collect and store information about your visit to our web site in the form of standard web server logs. This information helps us monitor it and ensure it is accessible.

Some information may be saved as a "cookie," which is a small file, saved to your computer via your web browser. We use cookies to enhance and customize your online experience. No vital personal information, such as passwords and addresses, will be stored in a cookie, nor will any data maintained by cookies be shared to Third Parties unless required by law as noted above in Disclosure and Third Party Sharing of Information. See the Cookie Policy for more about cookie use.

Information Storage
If you submit an application or form to us online, or request an online transaction, we may store the information you send in an electronic database. We use security measures to protect against the loss and misuse of data stored in our systems. Any sensitive information you provide will be stored in an encrypted format to help safeguard it, such as for passwords, billing information, credit card and payment information.

Third-Party Web Sites
Our web site may contain links to third-party sites to provide comprehensive information and payment services. These sites may have their own privacy policies. You should review the privacy policy of any web site before you provide personal or confidential information. Even when we use third-party payments services, such as with PayPal and Square, we still do not share confidential user information like passwords to these third parties. These third parties, however, may provide your customer contact information, such as your email address, to us when you use their payment services.

Protect Yourself from Fraudulent (Phishing) Web Sites
Personal information shared over the Internet can be used to commit fraud. One common method is for thieves to create a web site using a name that is similar to that of a reputable business or organization, for instance by using a common misspelling of a company's name. The intent is to lure you into clicking onto the copycat web site and giving your personal information, including your account number and password. We caution you to make sure of whom you are dealing with over the Internet and to understand what will be done with your information. Always check that you have typed the correct web site address before entering personal information onto a site.

Former Members and Customers
Even if you are no longer a member or customer, our Privacy Policy will continue to apply to you.

Other Information
This Privacy Policy applies to all members, customers, and visitors to this website. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy, and any of the policies described above, at any time. The examples contained within this Policy are illustrations. They are not intended to be exclusive. This Policy does not constitute a contract or create legal rights or modify or amend any agreements we have with customers and visitors to this website.

Changes to this policy
We may change this policy from time to time, when we do we will inform you by publishing it on our websites.
