Your Profile and Information You Provide to Us
We collect personal data from you when you provide it both offline and online. To create a profile, we require your first and last name, your email address, and a password to authenticate your identity when you login to access your profile. Beyond the personal information needed to create a profile, you have choices regarding any additional information you wish to provide, which may include the personal information stated above, the names of your family members, gender, etc., all of which will be stored in association with your profile.
If you have a profile with CCC, the information you provide will be associated with your profile and is stored internally in our relationship management system or “CRM system.” We will use this information to authenticate you and allow you access to your specific profile.
Disclosure of Information
We may transfer, or otherwise disclose, personal information and non-personal information collected from and about you to the following entities for the following purposes: (1) to our employees, independent contractors, service providers, and suppliers, if the disclosure will enable any of these entities to perform a business, professional, fulfillment, marketing, information technology, or technical support function for us; (2) to our employees, independent contractors, service providers and suppliers, to fulfill a product or service request; (3) where required by law.
Third Party Links
CCC is committed to protecting the privacy and safety of children. We are committed to complying with the guidelines set forth by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. The website is not directed to 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 email@example.com.
WiFi and GPS
Some of our pages use GPS information to identify when you are near one of our physical locations. You will be given the opportunity to provide consent for us to use this information when you first download, or begin to use, our app. If you provide consent, we use that information to enable push notifications related to interactions with our CCC app and physical locations. You also have the ability to manually initiate a GPS location search to identify if you are at one of our physical locations. When using our app, you may provide us with your GPS location through your browser, zip code, or city, which will be processed by a third-party search engine. We do not store this information outside of your device. Once your particular session of use of the feature ends, we will cease to have access to your GPS location unless you use the feature again. After your first use of this functionality, and your consent for us to use your GPS location, we will assume we have that consent going forward unless you revoke it through the settings of your mobile device.
We also collect and use the wireless (or “WiFi”) permissions of your mobile device to determine if you are connected to one of our WiFi networks.
We have implemented measures to help secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored either on our secure servers behind firewalls, or on cloud storage provided by a third-party hosting company. All communications between your browser and this website are encrypted with industry standard SSL Certificates from trusted Certificate Authorities that your browser already trusts. Backups of our database/CRM are also encrypted, protecting them in the event of theft or loss. Any payment transactions are also encrypted during transition.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given, or you have chosen, a password for access to certain parts of our website or app, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone, and we urge you to be careful about sharing information in public areas of the website, such as our Church Online Platform.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our website or app. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the website.
