At The Bridge Church we collect different types of information about our users for the following main reasons:
To provide a useful resource in the form of an online directory of users.
To provide an interactive web site where email is used to communicate with the users.
To provide a security mechanism whereby we can restrict content to certain groups of users e.g. church members.
We are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy. Our policy can be summarised in one sentence: we will not share your information with anyone without your consent.
We have established the following two principles:
We will respect your email privacy. You will only receive email from The Bridge Church in relation to areas you have expressly signed up for.
We will not share any individual user details (including your email address) to any third party without your consent.
What information do we collect?
We collect information on our users through registration (via the website, contact card or membership application form).
The minimum information we need to register a user is your first and last name and a password. We also ask for some further, voluntary information so we can provide a richer, more useful address book.
Who will have access to your information?
You have control over who is able to access specific items of information. Non-members' contact details will only be available to the admin team and will not be passed on to anyone else without your permission. Church members' contact details will be visible to other church members in the online address book (only church members can access contact details of other church members). If you would like your contact details to be removed from the published address book, please contact one of the website team.
What else you should know about privacy
Remember to close your browser when you have finished your user session. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet cafe. You as an individual are responsible for the security of, and access to, your own computer.
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information over the internet that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information in publicly accessible online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your usernames and passwords and any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are using the internet.
