Unless we say otherwise, all references to the Sites in this privacy policy include all such Sites.

We are committed to protecting your privacy and security and have explained in detail the steps we take to do so. We control this site from offices in the United States of America.

Privacy

We do not sell, rent or trade any personally identifiable information you provide when you opt in to our newsletter.

When you visit CreativeMinistry.org , we place a small text file — called a “cookie” — on your computer that allows us to identify your web browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service, and store your preferences and settings. Importantly, a cookie does not allow us to obtain any personally identifiable information (such as your real name and address) unless you have specifically provided such information as part of personalizing CreativeMinistry.org

If management of CreativeMinistry.org is ever transferred to another entity, we will transfer the information you have provided to the acquiring entity in order to ensure continuity of your personalized service. We recognize and welcome our obligation to comply with the law and this policy is subject to that obligation. We will, therefore, disclose personally identifiable information in response to a request from law enforcement officials or as otherwise required by law, or if we believe it is necessary to protect someone’s safety. If we decide to materially change this privacy policy, we will prominently post those changes on this page.
