Reston Bible Church maintains this website as a service to its members and guests. The Privacy Policy and Terms of Use set forth below govern your use of this website, and by using the website you agree to be bound by them. Therefore, please read the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use carefully before you use this website. If you do not agree with our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use, please do not use this website. Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered through this web site and do not necessarily reflect our practices with respect to information gathered through other means.

Privacy Policy

We are strongly committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information. Reston Bible Church adheres to the highest standards of ethical practices in all of our operations and is dedicated to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our web site.

Log Files

Like most web sites, this web site logs your IP address, browser type, hits on particular pages, and other general traffic information. This information is not linked to personally identifiable information and you remain anonymous.

Use of Personal Information

We collect and store personal information from you that you enter onto the web site. For instance, we take your e-mail address when you sign up for a newsletter and we take information for online giving. If you give us personal information, we will not share that information with any third party, except to the extent necessary to complete transactions or if we believe that it is appropriate to share such information in order to comply with the law; to enforce or apply the Privacy Policy or Terms of Use; or to protect the rights, property or safety of the web site, any user of the site, Reston Bible Church, or any of its directors, officers, employees, agents or affiliated organizations.

Cookies

We never use or install spyware on your computer, nor do we use spyware to retrieve information from your computer. Like many web sites, however, we use “cookies”, which are files stored on your computer’s hard drive by your browser. A “cookie” is a file that is sent from a web server to your web browser and placed on your computer. When you initially visit the web site we create a cookie for your computer and then use it to track your clicks as you go through the site. There is no personal information stored within the cookie itself and we cannot use cookies to retrieve personal information about you or from your computer. While your activity may be tracked while you are at our web site, we do not use cookies to track your activity before or after you leave the site. We use cookies to determine wether or not a user is logged in to the Web site and to store login session information.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

While our web site is not subject to COPPA, we love children and understand that it is very important to maintain their privacy. Therefore, our policy is that we will not knowingly collect, use or distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information from any child under 13 years old without verifiable parental consent and not knowingly allow any child under 13 years old to publicly post or distribute personally identifiable information without verifiable parental consent.

Security

We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Personal information collected by our web site is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. In many instances, such as in the case of credit card numbers and all on-line purchases, your personal information is encrypted before you conduct your transaction. Only those employees who need access to your personal information are allowed access. To protect the security of your financial information during transmission, we use software that encrypts any financial information you input. While we try our best to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Links To or From Another Web Site

This web site may contain links to other web sites operated by third parties. Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy do not apply to information gathered through these other web sites. These other sites may also send their own cookies to you, collect your data or solicit your personal information. Always be aware of where you end up. We are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies of third parties and other web sites. We encourage you to be aware of when you leave this web site and to read the privacy policies of each and every web site that you visit.

Changes to This Policy

As our web site continues to develop, we may add new services and features to our web site. In the event that these additions affect our Privacy Policy, this document will be updated appropriately. We will post those changes prominently so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information and whether we will disclose it to anyone. We do, however, recommend that you read this Privacy Policy each time you use our web site in case you missed our notice of changes to the Privacy Policy.

Opt-Out and Correction Procedures

You may always opt-out of receiving future e-mail messages and newsletters. We provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request information about you. You also will have an opportunity to change these selections by following the “unsubscribe” instructions contained in the promotional e-mails we send you.
