Website PrivacyWhen you connect to this website, we can recognize the internet (IP) address of the computer providing you with internet access. Our use of this IP address may be to help diagnose problems with our server or otherwise administer our website. This IP address may also be used to gather broad demographic information. Your IP address is never associated with you as an individual and never provided to another company or organization.
Use and Disclosure of InformationWe do not collect your name or email address, unless you provide it on a registration form, survey form, or send us an email. Our site’s forms may ask or require you to give us contact information (such as your email address), financial information (such as your account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (such as your ZIP code or age). We use this information to provide information, products, or services that you request. For example, financial information is used to bill you for products and services that you order. Any information collected is primarily for internal Ridgecrest use and is not made available to any outside group or organization except other agencies associated with Ridgecrest for designated purposes.
You have the option to provide personally identifiable and demographic information (such as name, age, gender, ZIP code, ministry involvement, job position, etc.). We encourage you to submit this information so we can better understand who our users are.
If you provide Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection.
Online TrackingOur website does not currently respond to web browser “Do Not Track” signals or other similar mechanisms. Also, as described in the Use and Disclosure of Information section above, we may use third-party vendors or software which could track your activities across third-party web sites or online services to help us enhance your experience on our site.
Children’s PrivacyRidgecrest takes children’s privacy seriously and maintains compliance with the rules defined by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We do not seek to collect individually identifiable information for children under 13 years of age.
If Ridgecrest learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information online, in contravention of these measures, Ridgecrest will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from its databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law).
Access, Correction, and UpdateTo keep Personally Identifiable Information that you provide via this site accurate, current, and complete, please update your information on file with Ridgecrest by filling out the appropriate forms on the website with your new contact and Personally Identifiable Information.
Data SecurityWe follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personally Identifiable Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it, from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from this site may not be secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Social MediaIf you choose to access, visit, and/or use any third-party social networking service(s) that may be integrated with our site, we may receive your Personal Data and other information about you and your computer, mobile, or other device that you have made available to those social networking services, including information about your contacts through those services. For example, some social networking services allow you to push content from our site to your contacts or to pull information about your contacts so you can connect with them on or through our site. Some social networking services also will facilitate registration or enhance or personalize your experience on our site. Your decision to use a social networking service in connection with our site is voluntary. However, you should make sure you are comfortable with the information your third-party social networking services may make available by reviewing privacy policies of those providers and/or modifying your privacy settings directly with those networking sites/services.
SpamThis is an opt-in email program. You will only receive emails from Ridgecrest based on the information you supply us. If you no longer want to receive these email communications, you must change your communication preference when you next update your profile.
SurveysWhen you pre-qualify for a survey, Ridgecrest may, from time to time, invite you to participate in online surveys. The information requested in these surveys may include, but is not limited to, your opinions, beliefs, insights, ideas, activities, experience, and purchase intent regarding events and services. The information collected by these surveys is used to research market trends, church trends, ministry growth, and community needs.
We use persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your internet browser’s “Help” file. More information about cookie technology can be found on the Microsoft® website at: microsoft.com/info/cookies.mspx.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site may be limited. As some of our promotions or surveys may be targeted towards responses to a particular marketing program, if the persistent cookie for that program is not present due to visitor deletion, you may not be invited to participate in the corresponding survey or promotion.
Data SecurityThis site has security measures (including online and off-line physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards) in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. As with any transmission over the internet, however, there is always some element of risk involved in sending personal information online. Your email address, password, and cookie will be required to update your personal profile information (name, email address, etc.). Remember to keep your password private and secure. You should not share this information with anyone. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can contact us.
Our Opt-Out PolicyIf you no longer wish to participate in our surveys and email newsletters, please be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the email you receive and click on the opt-out link provided, which will remove your record from our database. You will then receive no further marketing communications from us.
