This policy covers how we treat your personal information that is collected and received, including information related to your past use of our products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.
Information Collection and General Use
We collect personal information when you register with us, when you contact us by any method, when you use our products or services, when you visit our pages or the pages of certain The Christian Pulse partners, and when you enter our promotions or sweepstakes. We may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
You may occasionally see contests, surveys and other features on our web site that ask you to provide us with personal information. When you choose to respond to these requests, the personal information may be provided to third parties as necessary for prize fulfillment and other aspects of any contest, sweepstakes, game or other promotion. If we are going to use your personal information for any other purpose, we will make every effort to notify you of that purpose and give you a chance to opt-out before responding to our survey or participating in our contest, sweepstakes, game or other promotion. Any contest, sweepstakes, game or other promotion that is accessible through our web site will be governed by specific rules. By entering any such contest, sweepstakes, game or other promotion, you will become subject to those rules. We urge you to read the applicable rules, which are linked from the particular contest, sweepstakes, game or other promotion.
We may ask for information such as your name, email address, date of birth, gender, zip code, occupation, industry, and personal interests. For some products and services we may also ask for your address, Social Security number, and information about your assets.
We collect information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners, including information about your use of products and services that we offer.
Areas of our web site enable you to send e-mail to us or to third parties and to participate in public bulletin boards and discussion groups. All postings to public forums, bulletin boards, and discussion groups become our property. Whenever you choose to initiate these kinds of communication with us, or anyone else, you may expect to be contacted in return. Also, remember that our forums, bulletin boards, and discussion groups are open to the public, and therefore, your postings can be seen by anyone and are not protected by us or any other entity. Please use your own discretion when deciding what to post publicly and whom to contact. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to edit or delete inappropriate postings from our forums, bulletin boards, and discussion groups; provided, however, the reservation of this right shall not, under any circumstances, obligate us to conduct such editing or deletions.
We automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, The Christian Pulse cookie information, and the page/s you request.
If you participate in any referral service we may offer, we will use the information you submit to determine which of our staff or business partners may be able to best serve your needs. We may then forward your name, contact information and other responses contained on our sign-up form to the selected individuals or organizations, which may then contact you using that information.
We use information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
Legal Age of Customers/Visitors
When any visitor submits information through our site, they are acknowledging that they are of legal age in the State or locality they are residing in to register with us. You are also acknowledging that if you are not of legal age, you have obtained permission from your parent or guardian.
If you access our web site, you are providing us with the authorization to use your information for the general purposes listed throughout this policy.
We do not actively collect, record, or market to visitors under the legal age in their State or locality of residence.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Currently, we do not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested. We do reserve the right to do so without notifying you prior, during, or after our Policy has been modified.
We may display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria.
We do not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
Our advertisers include but are not limited to financial service providers (such as banks, insurance agents, stock brokers and mortgage lenders) and non-financial companies (such as stores, airlines, and software companies).
We may set and access cookies on your computer. We will let other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not ours. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to our cookies.
Ability to Edit and Delete Your Account Information
You can request for us to provide you with your information so you can edit it, including your marketing preferences, at any time.
We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to our products and services, such as service announcements, administrative messages and our newsletter, that are considered related to your account, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.
You can delete your account by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org with specific instructions included in your message.
Confidentiality and Security
We limit access to personal information about you to our employees who we believe have reason to come into contact with that information to provide better products or services to you as part of doing their jobs.
We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.
Any information gathered automatically by our system (such as your computer’s IP address, your browser, and your navigation through our web site) will help us understand how to make our web site convenient and useful to our audience. This information may also be shared with our affiliates, subsidiaries, and partners to be used for similar purposes. In addition, we may share this information, with our current and potential partners so they can know how to market to you more effectively.
Whenever personal information about you is stored on our computers, it will be password-protected from unauthorized access or use. In addition, this information is kept only on servers that are located behind a firewall, which makes their contents inaccessible to outside users.
We have the right to modify, update, and edit this policy at our discretion. We may notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
If we sell off a division, merge with another company or spin off a business, your information may be included in such a transaction. However if such a transaction occurs we may notify you of the event and give you an opportunity to respond.
