Privacy Policy

 

Discovery Christian Church is committed to ensuring the privacy of all contributors’ information.

 

Application of privacy policy

This privacy policy applies to all personal information submitted by contributors through Discovery Christian Church’s website (the “Website”), and through the Pushpay mobile payment application for use on iOS and Android smart phones (the “Application”).

 

Personal information

The Church may collect general information about you, such as your name, address, contact details so the Church can contact you. The Church will not collect any personal information about visitors to the website except when they knowingly provide it.

 

In order to make a payment to Discovery Christian Church, all contributors will need to submit certain personal information about themselves (as prompted by the Website and/or Application), including their name, phone number, postal and email address.

 

Use of information and data

We use the information you provide for the purposes for which it was originally collected, for example, to respond to your email or to provide the programs or services you requested. We may also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our website, to better understand the needs and interests of the people and organizations that use our website, and to improve our programs and services.

 

Consent

By accessing the Website and/or using the Application, all contributors consent to the collection, use, disclosure, storage and processing of their information in accordance with this privacy policy.

 

Changes to privacy policy

The Church may amend or update this privacy policy from time to time, with or without notice to contributors. All contributors agree to be bound by the privacy policy that is in effect at the time they access the Website or use the Application.

 

Protection of Personal Information

The Church takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

 

Retention

The Church will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. At a minimum, the Church will retain the information for one calendar year so that annual giving statements may be generated for the contributor’s use.
