It is Evangelical United Methodist Church’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Like most website operators, Evangelical UMC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Evangelical UMC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Evangelical’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Evangelical UMC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Evangelical UMC only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Our contact forms send an email to the appropriate party. We may also store a copy on the website in the event of email issues. You may contact us to have your form responses removed from the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Who we share your data with
We collect website data for the purposes of analytics using Google Site Kit. Google Site Kit automatically anonymizes our users IP addresses for the purpose of data collection.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Evangelical UMC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Evangelical’s behalf or to provide services available at Evangelical UMC’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Evangelical UMC’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Evangelical UMC will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Evangelical UMC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Evangelical believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Evangelical UMC, third parties or the public at large.
