Privacy Policy

Galloway United Methodist Church (or "we" or "us") respects the privacy of its users and recognizes the importance of protecting the personal information you provide to us over the Internet. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect on this web site, http://www.gallowayumc.org ("Web Site"), how we use your information, and your choices. This Privacy Policy only covers information collected at this Web Site, and does not cover any information collected by any other Web Site or offline by Galloway U.M.C. (unless specifically stated), its affiliates or any other company. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. In addition, please review our Terms of Use, which governs your use of this Web Site.

Information Galloway U.M.C. Collects

Personally Identifiable Information: Generally, you may browse this Web Site without providing any personal information about yourself, which is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your name, address, birth date or email address), which we refer to as "PII." However, we may ask you to provide us with certain PII when you register with us or at other times, such as if you choose to participate in or receive information about event registration, polls, surveys and/or promotional events. We may also ask you to provide us with demographic information or information regarding your interests, hobbies or similar information. Providing us with information about yourself is completely voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in many of the Web Site's features. In addition, you may have the opportunity to provide us with the PII, such as name or e-mail address, of someone else, such as if you chose to e-mail a friend an article, or other special feature from our Web Site.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: When you visit this Web Site, our web servers automatically collect web site usage information. Web site usage information is non-identifying, aggregate information that describes how our visitors use and navigate our Web Site, and it includes the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays. We also collect the non-identifying information automatically sent to us by your web browser, such as browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our Web Site, and IP addresses (see below for more information on IP addresses). We also may determine the technology available through your browser in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page.

Galloway U.M.C. Does Not Knowingly Collect Information From Children Under Thirteen (13) Years Of Age:
This is not a web site directed to children under the age of 13, and Galloway U.M.C. does not knowingly collect any PII from children under thirteen (13) years of age. If you are under thirteen (13) years of age, do not send any information about yourself to us. If Galloway U.M.C. discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with PII, we will delete that child's PII from its system.

Galloway U.M.C. encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to supervise their children's activities on the World Wide Web. Galloway U.M.C. suggests that parents consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that may help ensure a child friendly online environment and help direct their children to suitable, child-oriented web sites.

Use Of IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer or network when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from this Web Site, our servers log your IP address. Galloway U.M.C. may use IP addresses for a number of purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit the use of the Web Site.

Cookies: Like most web sites, this Web Site sometimes makes use of browser "cookies." Cookies are pieces of information that a web site either transfers to your computer's hard drive or stores temporarily in your computer's memory for record-keeping purposes. Galloway U.M.C. does not save PII in cookies. We may use cookies for a number of purposes. For example, we sometimes use cookies when we conduct polls, contests or sweepstakes to limit multiple responses and registrations. Or, we may use cookies to track usage patterns on the Web Site or to analyze web activity.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you decline to accept Galloway cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in certain features of this Web Site.

Galloway U.M.C’s Use and Disclosure of Collected Information

Galloway U.M.C. may use your PII to provide you with requested information or content, to contact you in connection with an event registration, or other user-initiated sign-up, or for other purposes disclosed when you provide the information. We may also contact you regarding any problems or questions we have relating to your use of our Web Site, or, in our discretion, notify you of changes to our Privacy Policy, Terms of Use or other policy or terms that affect you and your use of our Web Site. Galloway U.M.C. may also use information about our users, including PII, for internal purposes.

If you e-mail someone else an article, or other special feature from our Web Site, we will use the information you provide about someone else to send that person the requested e-mail. The e-mail addresses you supply us for those activities will not be used to send you or your friend any other e-mail communications unless otherwise disclosed at the time you provide such information.

Galloway U.M.C. may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on its behalf. Examples include, without limitation, hosting this Web Site, sending communications on our behalf, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, creating, hosting and/or running events and providing customer service. These third parties may have access to this Web Site's user information, including PII, but only to the extent it is needed to perform their duties and functions.

Galloway U.M.C. may disclose information about its users, including PII, when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Web Site and applicable laws. Galloway U.M.C. may also disclose such user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to limit our legal liability or to protect or enforce the rights, interests, or safety of the Web Site, our users or others.

Other than as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we will not contact you with marketing material or share your PII with outside parties unless such use or disclosure is clearly identified at the time you provide your PII or we provide you the opportunity to consent or prohibit such use or disclosure.

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you may disclose publicly in chat rooms, bulletin boards, or similar web pages. You should keep in mind that whenever you publicly disclose PII online - for example, via message boards or chat rooms - that PII could be collected and used by people that you do not know. In addition, certain message boards and similar user forums may display IP addresses along with the message poster's name and message. Galloway U.M.C. bears no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who collect any information users may disclose on the bulletin boards, chat areas or other public forums, if any, on this Web Site.

In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases. And, your ability to opt out from receiving marketing and promotional material does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of our Web Site or changes to our Privacy Policy, Terms of Use or other policy or terms that affect you and your use of our Web Site.
