This website (“www.gracebaptist.life”; “Service”, “site”) is owned and operated by Grace Baptist Church (“GBC”, “we”, “our”, “us”). The following as an outline of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of the personal information of visitors to this website.
Information Collection and Use
We do not require website visitors to reveal any personally identifying information in order to access the GBC website. Although personally identifying information may be required to use certain features offered through our website (including, but not limited to registration for various events, classes, newsletter subscriptions, etc.), 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, and/or email address.
How We Use Your Information
Personally identifying information that we collect for a specific purpose is stored 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 website. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are only retained as needed by our credit card processor, not by GBC. Aside from our established third-party service providers below, we will not share any personally identifying information with any other third parties. Also, we will never sell any personally identifying information to a third party.
We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:
To facilitate our Service;
To provide the Service on our behalf;
To perform Service-related services; or
To assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
GBC may share information with third party service providers such as our payment processor (Tithe.ly) and our email marketing provider (to be determined). We also share information with appropriate third parties, including law enforcement and/or similar organizations, in connection with criminal investigation, fraud prevention, infringement of intellectual property rights, and/or other activity that is suspected to be illegal or that may expose our users or GBC to legal liability. We may use personally identifying information and records for defense in a lawsuit, investigation, or other action if that personally identifying information, including related records and profiles, is relevant to the lawsuit, investigation, or action.
We want to inform our Service users that these third parties have access to your personal information to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, rest assured, they are not permitted to disclose or use that information for any other purpose.
We want to inform you that whenever you visit our website, we collect information that your browser sends to us – in other words, Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser version, pages of our Service that you visited, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, and other statistics visible in our Google Analytics Property Data for www.gracebaptist.life.
Our website also uses a variety of technical methods for tracking conversions, including Google UTM campaign and page tracking codes (see Google Tag Manager to learn more). This is used to analyze the traffic patterns on our website, such as the frequency with which consumers visit various parts of our website. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to a third party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We also apply these technical methods in HTML emails that we send to our newsletter subscribers to determine whether recipients have opened the emails or clicked on links in those emails. This helps us to determine the level of success for each individual email campaign. The information collected in these cases, therefore, is personally identifiable.
“Cookies” are files with a small amount of data commonly used to track users through anonymous unique identification. These are sent to your browser from websites that you visit and are stored temporarily on your computer’s hard drive. These files may be removed at any time through the employment of cache-cleaning software tools such as CCleaner.
We sincerely value your trust in providing us with your personal information, thus we strive to protect it by all possible means. This includes the installation of an SSL security certificate across our website to ensure transaction security, as well as the employment of a sitewide security plugin called Wordfence. Though we all wish it were not so, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security perpetually into the future. However, we will continue to adhere to standard security practices, as well as keep a watchful eye on potential vulnerabilities and cybersecurity trends to keep our site as secure as possible for all our visitors.

Disclosure of phone numbers, addresses, age or other personally identifying information that may violate someone else’s privacy is prohibited.

In the interest of protecting their privacy, children under the age of 13 are not permitted to comment on the “News” page – as such, any comment discovered to have been made by a child under the age of 13 will be deleted from our servers.
We reserve the right to delete any content that violates these rules and/or any posted term or condition on our site.
Additionally, we reserve the right to permanently ban any user who violates these rules.
We do not knowingly collect personally identifying information from children under 13. In the event we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifying information, we immediately delete such information from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personally identifying information, please contact us so that we may take necessary action to protect his/her privacy.
