The Moody Church is committed to respecting the privacy rights of all visitors to our websites. We also recognize that our visitors need protection of any personally identifying information they choose to share with us. This privacy policy is intended to provide you with information on how we collect, use and store the information that you provide to us through our websites so that you can make appropriate choices for sharing information with us.

Websites
We currently operate the websites www.moodychurch.org and www.moodymedia.org. In addition, we own several other domain names that point to www.moodychurch.org and www.moodymedia.org. From time to time, we may add new websites not listed above, but will provide a link to this policy or the applicable privacy policy.

Links
This policy applies only to websites maintained by The Moody Church. We may create links to the websites of ministry partners, affiliates or other entities. Although we will make every effort to link only to websites that meet similar standards for maintaining each individual’s right to privacy, this privacy policy does not apply to third-party websites. Additionally, other websites not associated with The Moody Church may have links leading to one of our websites even if we have not authorized those links. We cannot control these links and are not responsible for any content appearing on these websites.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy
We reserve the right to make changes to this privacy policy at any time. If we make changes to this privacy policy, we will notify you by posting notice of the change on our websites. We will post the changes in the privacy policy and, if necessary, give you additional choices regarding changes. Please check this privacy policy from time to time to ensure that you are aware of these changes. Your continued use of our websites subject to this privacy policy will signify your acceptance of privacy policy changes.

Collection of Personal Information through our Websites
We do not require that website visitors reveal any personally identifying information in order to access our websites. Although personally identifying information may be required to participate in certain features offered through our websites and/or registration for various events, participants provide this information on a voluntary basis only. Collection of personal information required to access certain website services may include the collection of date of birth, name, mailing address or email address.

How We Use Your Information
Personally identifying information that we collect for a particular purpose through one of our websites is saved and used only for that purpose, unless the participant chooses to opt-in to one or more of the programs or email newsletters offered on our websites. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are only retained as needed by our credit card processor, not by The Moody Church. We will not share or sell personally identifying information to any third party with the exception noted below.

The Moody Church may share information with third party service providers such as our payment processor and our email marketing provider. We also share information with appropriate third parties, including law enforcement or similar organizations, in connection with a criminal investigation, investigation of fraud, prevention of fraud or criminal activities, infringement of intellectual property rights or other activity that is suspected to be illegal or may expose our users or The Moody Church to legal liability. We may use personally identifying information and records for defense of a lawsuit, investigation or other action if that personally identifying information, records or profiles are relevant to the lawsuit, investigation or action.

Blogs and News Boards
Our website blogs and news boards are a place where users can go to share their thoughts and ideas about the topic at hand. Blog and/or News participants must adhere to any additional posted terms and conditions. Blogs and News board moderators enforce applicable rules. Any information we collect in connection with a consumer’s participation on our message boards will adhere to this privacy policy. We ask our users to respect the privacy of others. Disclosure of phone numbers, addresses, age or other personally identifying information that may violate someone else’s privacy is prohibited. Encouraging or asking users to disclose publicly their personally identifying information is also prohibited. We reserve the right to delete any content that violates these rules or any posted term or condition. Additionally, we reserve the right to ban any user who violates these rules. For details on online communication for children in the United States and Canada under the age of 13, please see the section entitled “Policies for Children”.

Policies for Children
We encourage parents to take an active role to protect their children’s privacy and to prevent inappropriate uses of their children’s information. Parents should instruct their children never to provide their real names, ages or any other identifying information on our websites without first getting permission.

Log Files
We may use log files to gather statistics about consumers’ browsing habits and to assess overall website activity, including how many “hits” a particular web page is getting. These entries are generated anonymously, and enable us to track interest in specific features, troubleshoot technical concerns, and provide content that is most interesting. We may also use the log file entries for our internal utilization and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide. Log files are used internally only, and are not associated with any particular user or computer.

Web Beacons
Our websites use a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, including tracking code. This is used to analyze the traffic patterns on our websites, such as the frequency with which consumers visit various parts of our websites. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We also use these technical methods in HTML emails that we send our guests to determine whether recipients have opened those emails or clicked on links in those emails. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that is personally identifiable.

Accuracy & Security
We seek to maintain reasonable security measures in order to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the personally identifying information under our control. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as perfect security. As a result, although we strive to protect personally identifying information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us through or in connection with our website or that we store on our systems or that is stored on our service providers’ systems.

We strive to take reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information collected from our website visitors. Personal information is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public and that are only accessible to authorized employees. In addition, The Moody Church uses industry-standard encryption to prevent unauthorized electronic access to sensitive financial information such as your credit card number. We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. In the event of a security breach, we have procedures in place to quickly and effectively protect our consumers’ data.

Retention Policy
We will retain personally identifying information about you for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required by law or regulations.
