WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AND STORED?
We only collect personally identifiable information when you contact us directly, submit information for a ministry service, or otherwise knowingly provide us with your personal information.

A membership may be required to access certain ministry services such as posting Praise Reports or Testimonials or to receive regular communications such as our Daily Devotional or Daily Bible Reading. Carpenter's Way Ministries does not collect or process any data regarding an individual's race or ethnic origin, genetic or biometric data, health or mortality, sex life or sexual orientation, political beliefs, or trade union memberships. Any information of this nature which is shared on our Prayer Walls, Praise Reports, or Testimonials is of a completely voluntary nature and is not required by or stored by Carpenter's Way Ministries.

We do not knowingly collect or maintain information on children under the age of 13. If you are the parent or guardian of a child age 13 or under who has provided us with personal information and you would like that information removed, please contact us at info@CarpentersWayMinistries.com.

Accessing Your Information
You may request to access, correct or modify personal information you provide to us or direct us to not disclose your information to any third party as long as the information is not required to be retained by law or is necessary for a transaction or service you requested on the site. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup storage).

HOW IS INFORMATION USED?
As a visitor to our site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. Some services require that you sign up for a membership or provide personal information. If you choose not to submit personal information to any of our services, we may not be able to provide those services to you. We collect this information to note your preferences, deliver requested content, and enhance your experience on our site. You may opt out of electronically delivered communications at any time through the member settings.
We use non-personal information to help us determine how people use our site to improve functionality and offered services. Sometimes we use third-party agents to perform tasks on our behalf, such as marketing, analytics, credit-card processing, fraud protection, etc. These entities only have access to the personal information needed to perform their functions and will be contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of that personal information. They are restricted from using, selling, distributing or altering this data in any way other than to provide the requested services to the site.
WHAT INFORMATION IS SHARED WITH OTHERS?
We may share your personal information with our employees, independent contractors, ministry partners, or service providers to fulfill a product or service request or ensure compliance with our Terms & Conditions. We may also use or disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to applicable laws or comply with legal processes, protect and defend our rights or property, and under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of our employees or partners, the users of the sites or the public.
Also, the privacy of communication over the Internet cannot be guaranteed because the Internet is not a secure medium. You agree that Carpenter's Way Ministries is not responsible for any harm, loss, or damage you may incur by the sending of personal or confidential information over the Internet.
HOW IS PERSONAL INFORMATION KEPT SECURE?
Carpenter's Way Ministries takes commercially reasonable steps to implement appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These steps may include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. Unless explicit permission is obtained from you we restrict access to personal information to Carpenter's Way Ministries' employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. Carpenter's Way Ministries is not responsible, however, if unauthorized access to information occurs.
We use third party services to process credit card payments. All sensitive credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider's database where it is kept confidential. All payments are PCI-DSS compliant. We do not store credit card numbers, expiration dates or verification numbers on our servers at any time. Most browsers will give a visual indication of when your connection is secure. For example, Internet Explorer will show a padlock icon in the lower right of the browser window.
