Privacy Notice

At Paracletos, our mission is to cultivate a community of missionary care. Connecting with friends of missionaries like you involves sharing information. We know many people would like to know how the information we collect on this website is being used and protected. We’ve written this privacy policy to explain what information we collect, why we collect it, and how it’s being used and protected.

“Paracletos” or “we” or “us” refers to Paracletos Inc. in this policy. This policy applies whenever you access any of the resources, content, products, or services on Paracletos.org and any other domains provided by Paracletos. This policy describes:

1. What information we collect, how we use that information and how we share it
2. What choices you can make about the use of your information
3. How we protect the information we store about you
4. Information about specific types of information that we use
5. Information about children’s data and COPPA compliance
6. Information about third party links

The Information We Collect, How We Use That Information And How We Share It
You can visit and read many of the resources on our websites without disclosing any personal information. There may be times when you may be asked to share limited personally identifiable information to access or use certain features of the website. We limit the information we collect from you to information that’s pertinent to the activity you’ve chosen.

Generally we don’t share or disclose any information you provide with anyone outside of our organization unless you give us permission to do so. There are specific times when we need to use your information to provide the product or service you’ve requested. For example, we may need to use or share you information with our partners and agents who provide services or products on our behalf.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about new resources and opportunities available through our organization.

What Choices You Can Make About The Use Of Your Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address given on our website:

• See what data we have about you, if any.
• Change/correct any data we have about you.
• Have us delete any data we have about you.
• Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

How We Protect The Information We Store About You
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information through the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, donation processing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Blog Comments
Some of our websites use blogs to post articles and resources, and these blog posts may allow for user comments. We are not responsible for the content posted in these comments. Please remember that any information disclosed in blog comments becomes public information and you should consider this seriously when decided to disclose personal information. Any information you submit via the comments section on our blog becomes the property of our websites unless we indicate otherwise.

Surveys
From time-to-time we collect information through website surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information we request may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). This information may be used to follow up on survey responses. Survey information is used to improve the use and content of our website or to collect data related to our ministry’s primary purpose.

Registration
In order to use certain features of this website, a user will complete a registration form. During registration you will provide certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about events, reservations, and products and services on our site in which you have requested or expressed interest.

Cookies And Other Information Collected
Our websites may use cookies to keep track of website activities, save your password, or deliver content relevant to your interests. You can refuse cookies by adjusting the settings in your website browser.

This website may collect information that is not personally identifiable, like the IP address from which you access our website, browser type, browser version, and statistics about your website visit. This information is used to track activity and is analyzed for trends and statistics. We may also use your IP address to help resolve technical problems and to administer our website. We reserve the right to block certain IP addresses that are the source of malicious attacks or spam.

Children And COPPA Compliance
We do not collect information directly from children age 12 and under. Only the parents and legal guardians are allowed to provide personally identifiable information for children age 12 and under.
