Information We Collect
Automatically Collected Anonymous Information
When you visit our website, we may receive and store information collected passively through various technologies that provide additional functionality, analyze usage and behavior, temporarily store our pages and images, store content and preferences.
This information is used to provide us with statistical information such as the number of visitors to the website, pages visited and duration of visit, IP address, browser type, ISP, operating system, type of device being used, and date/time stamps.
This information is merely statistical and not used to identify you.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is any information about you as an individual that would enable someone to contact you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or email address). We may ask for such information when you fill out a contact form on our website, subscribe to a newsletter, participate in an online survey, post a comment, enter a contest or sweepstakes, or use a service or tool such as email to contact us.
You can visit and browse our website without revealing any PII, but you may not be able to access certain content, features or services if you choose not to disclose PII. We will not collect any PII about you unless you provide it. Providing any PII to us is voluntary.
How We Use This Information
We use PII and other information to improve the content on our website, provide you with services, send you updates and valuable information such as newsletters and other online or print publications, communicate with you, enable you to connect with others, improve our services, conduct research and maintain current membership data.
If you choose to submit content for publication (e.g. in our newsletter, on our website, or in print), we may publish any PII you have provided to us. If you prefer not to have your PII published, do not include it in your submission.
If you choose to post comments on our website or social media pages, any information you submit may become public. It may become accessible through search engines or, if you sign in using credentials from a third-party social networking service, it may become accessible to users on that service. Unless otherwise noted, we do not limit the distribution of information that you share using these features. The Iowa-Missouri Conference is not responsible for any personal information you choose to make public via these forums, and you agree that such sharing will be deemed to have been permitted by you, not us.
If your personal information changes, you no longer desire our services, or wish to know whether we hold personal information about you, you may you request, correct, update, amend, and delete such information by contacting us (see below).
For changes to information pertaining to membership records or to church treasury items, contact your local church clerk, treasurer or pastor. If you do send us an inquiry directly, please include your name, address, location of your church and name of your clerk and/or pastor, and the nature your request. We will make all efforts to respond to your inquiry within a reasonable time.
The security of your information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards such as encryption to protect the personal information submitted to us.
