What Information We Collect
We collect three kinds of information:
- Personal information that you directly provide to us, which includes information you supply when you register an account with us and save items to your profile.
- Non-personal information that’s automatically gathered as you use NewAgeChristianity.org, which includes tracking information for our sites.
- Cookies, to help us understand what areas of the site are most useful and interesting to our audience.
Information You Provide Directly To Us
Billing and Credit Card Information
When required for donations, conference registration, product purchases or other services, we may store your name, address, telephone number and email address. We do not store credit card numbers except for the last 4 digits. This information will only be shared with third parties who perform tasks required to complete the purchase transaction.
We may collect non-personal information about the computer, mobile device or other device you use to access New Age Christianity resources, such as IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language and other transactional information.
Information Collected Using 'Cookies'
Comments and other public activities
We offer you opportunities to engage in public activities on NewAgeChristianity.org. “Public activities” are any actions you take that are designed to be visible to other users — including comments, recommendations and ratings. If you choose to engage in public activities, any personal information you submit there can be read, collected or used by other users of these areas. While the New Age Christianity community itself is a private invitation only community, your account is public to the rest of the community by default. Please refer to the Community Guidelines about how to best take advantage of our interactive spaces.
Tracking information for our site
This type of information relates to how many views are associated with each post on New Age Christianity, how many times posts are saved or favorited, and/or other areas of the site that automatically store non-personal information about the sites’ usage, popularity or positive/negative impact. We perform statistical analyses of users of the site, and their viewing and participation patterns, for content development purposes and to generally inform our decision making processes.
Non-Personal Information Collected Automatically
We use various technologies, including Google Analytics cookies, to manage NewAgeChristianity.org and track use of the content we provide, including:
- Standard web analytics information
- Aggregated data about email click-through rates and video viewing
- Information collected through HTML cookies, Flash cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies
- Demographics and other details that are provided to New Age Christianity to help us customize the site based on your preferences
Cookies provide a mechanism for us to understand how you use the site over time so that we can provide you the best user experience according to your expressed preferences. We do not sell this information to any third party, but may provide information to partners that assist us in updating, managing or maintaining our websites.
We may collect and use information about your location (such as your country) to provide a tailored, language-specific experience for your region, but we don’t collect any exact data of you or your device. You can change the settings on your computer or mobile device to prevent your location information from being shared with us. In case you wish to opt-out of the tracking and cookies, please feel free to manage your settings on your browser in privacy, or select other ways to opt-out so that the cookies and/or ad features are turned off.
How We Use This Information
Providing requested services
We may use the information that we collect to fulfill your requests for services and information. For example, using your contact information to respond to your customer service requests, or to enable registration for one of our conferences.
We also use the information we collect to send email newsletters, or information about conferences and New Age Christianity events (if you have opted in for this information), product launches and discounts. We may also use the information that we collect to send you e-mail communications, such as information about your account or changes to the site.
The Epoch connects Google Analytics client id data with New Age Christianity user ID data so that we can create a more personalized experience for users, even when not logged in.
In addition to the uses identified above, we may use the information that we collect for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect your information or pursuant to your consent.
Steps We Take To Protect Your Privacy
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of information, we put in place commercially reasonable physical, technical and administrative controls to protect your information. Please note that no method of transmission over the internet is 100% secure.
Remember, when visiting a third-party site from NewAgeChristianity.org, we do not control the privacy policies of other parties, so please check before browsing on those sites to ensure you agree with their terms.
Children under the age of 13
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected any personal information from a child under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as possible. If you believe that we may have collected information from a child under 13, please contact us.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Deactivating your account and managing privacy settings
You can request that your account be deactivated at any time by contacting us. When your account is deactivated, your user profile and all public activities (such as comments) will be hidden. To unsubscribe from our newsletters, click on the link at the bottom of a newsletter you have received, or you can manage your subscriptions from your culture profile.
