Collection and Use of Information

Visitors may use the CSBC website without disclosing any personally identifiable information. CSBC collects personally identifiable information from those who choose to provide it by registering for an event sponsored by the organization or for informational mailings. This personally identifiable information may include your name, address, phone number or email address, as well as specific information relevant to the event for which you are registering. These registration forms are often linked to CSBC’s mailing lists and require users to give contact information. CSBC uses the contact information provided to send users promotional materials about events that will benefit CSBC churches and church leaders.

CSBC is the sole owner of information collected through our website. CSBC will not sell or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

Your Access to and Control of Information

Users may opt out of ­future mailings at any time by using the “opt out” feature of marketing emails delivered to your inbox.

Newsletters, Magazines and other Communications

CSBC offers subscriptions to electronic newsletters. In doing so, CSBC asks for personal contact information, which is collected in the same manner as described in the “Collection and Use of Information” section of this policy. Recipients of CSBC publications and other solicitations may unsubscribe using the instructions included in these publications.

Third-Party Websites

The CSBC website provides links to third-party websites, such as our partners – CSBC and SBC institutions and agencies, state Baptist conventions and CSBC associations. Because CSBC has no control over these third parties, we recommend that you review their privacy policies. CSBC is not responsible for content or policies of third-party websites.

Security

CSBC takes precautions to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information by using industry-recognized security safeguards such as firewalls, coupled with carefully developed security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration. When CSBC asks for sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, we use a third party that protects your information through the use of encryption during transmission. No such sensitive information is recorded or retained by CSBC. Other than credit card transactions which are protected through encryption, please do not disclose any private or confidential information to us through email or our website. CSBC cannot and does not guarantee the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet.

If you feel we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via telephone at 559.256.0818 or via email at tbarone@csbc.com.  (September 8, 2016)
