What Types of Information and Data Does Third Church Collect, and When Does It Collect This Data?

We collect various types of “Personal Information” when you provide it to us (directly or through our staff and volunteers) or when you use our services. "Personal Information" is information that can be used to identify or contact you, as well as other information about you, including, for example:

  • "Contact Information" that allows us to identify and communicate with you, such as name, phone number, address, and email.
  • "Relationship Information" that helps us understand who you are and how we can best serve you, including demographics such as, race, gender, age, and other information relating to your faith, religious interests, or involvement.

“Non-Personal Information” is any information that does not identify you specifically, such as browser analysis tools; anonymized information (data not associated with a particular person); and aggregated information (information combined with other data in such a way that no person can be identified).

We use your Personal Information for a variety of purposes, including:

  • To Provide Requested Services. To provide services and ongoing support as you may request.

  • As Disclosed at the Time of Collection. In any other manner that we may describe when you provide the information to us.

In addition, we reserve the right to use anonymized and aggregated Personal Information to improve our services, to create and publish reports, to conduct statistical analysis about our members and services, and for other activities that do not result in the disclosure of your information.

We are committed to being transparent and respectful regarding the manner in which we use and disclose your information. We may share Personal Information with our staff, volunteers, and third-party service providers, as needed to consistently accomplish the Purposes, as you authorize or request, or as required to do so by law.
