We recognize the sensitive nature of your information. It is our highest priority to ensure the confidentiality of any information you provide and take a proactive approach in protecting your privacy.
When using our Site, you may provide us with Personal Data such as your name, address, phone number, and church affiliation.
Other Information We Collect
When you interact with our Site, we may receive and store information collected passively through various technologies used on our websites. This information is used to provide us with statistical information such as the number of visitors to a website(s) and the number of visitors to each page of our Site. Other information collected may include the IP address, browser type, ISP, pages you visit, operating system, and date/time stamps. This information is merely statistical and is not used to identify you.
Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically collected information as “Device Information.”
These technologies are used to provide additional functionality, analyze usage and behavior more accurately, temporarily store our pages and images, and store content and preferences.
We may also partner with third parties to either display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third-party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this website and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests.
How We Use Your Personal and Other Information We Collect
We may use Personal Data and other information to provide you with Services, send you updates, administer your account, communicate with you and your church/organization, enable you to connect with others, improve our Services, conduct research, understand your organization, send you valuable information and newsletters, and communicate with individuals and members of participating organizations. We will not reuse Personal Data for a new purpose other than the original one(s) for which it was collected, unless the following apply:
- The new use is compatible with the original one, meaning you should reasonably expect similar use;
- We have notified you of the new use and given you an opportunity to object to it; or
- The new use is otherwise permitted by law.
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
By voluntarily providing us with your information, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Statement. You acknowledge and agree that your data may be transferred from your current location to our servers or to authorized third parties as described in this Privacy Statement. We will not share your information with anyone not described in this Privacy Statement unless your consent is obtained prior to doing so. This Privacy Statement also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your information and how you can access and update it.

Sharing Your Personal Information
We may provide your Personal Data to third-party service providers that help us with our business activities such as shipping, marketing, and payment processing. These companies are authorized to use your Personal Data only as necessary to provide these services to us. We do not sell your Personal Data.

You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here.
Finally, we may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (i) comply with a legal obligation such as to comply with a subpoena, or a similar legal process; (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of the Voice of Prophecy and/or Adventist Media Ministries; (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services, visitors to our centers, or the public; or (iv) protect against legal liability. If the organization is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified with a notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your information, as well as any choices you may have.
The security of your information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards such as encryption to protect the Personal Data submitted to us. We ensure that only the necessary persons have access to your data, that access to the data is protected, and that our security measures are regularly reviewed.
We will retain your Personal Data for as long as your account is active or as long as the data may be reasonably useful for other organizational purposes. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We will dispose of your information when it is no longer needed or required to be kept.
If your personal information changes, you no longer desire to use our Services on our Site, or you wish to know whether we hold personal information about you, you may correct, update, amend, and delete such information and cancel Services by accessing the pertinent menus (User Profile, Memberships, Subscriptions, Account Details, Payment Methods, etc.) which are accessible in the dashboard area of your account.
