Notification of Changes to this Policy
FPCW continually improves and adds new functionality and features to its websites and improves and adds to its existing services and programs. Because of these ongoing programmatic changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, FPCW’s data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, we will post the changes on this website to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check this page frequently.
Personal Data Collected through Our Websites
The only personal data FPCW currently collects through our websites is the information you give us when you use our sites. This includes, for example, the information you provide when you send a prayer request, read the monthly newsletter, apply for the newsletter distribution, or send us your comments or requests for information. FPCW uses the information you provide for the purposes for which it was originally collected, for example, to privately and respectfully respond to a prayer request, or to respond to your e-mail, or to provide the services you have requested. FPCW also uses this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our websites and its links, to better understand the needs and interests of the people and organizations that use our websites, and to improve our programs and services. FPCW may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about Church programs, and services we believe will be of interest to you, or to ask for your support.
FPCW may share information from its websites to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect its vital interests, to protect the security or integrity of our databases or our websites, to take precautions against legal liability, or in the event of a reorganization, dissolution or similar event.
Anonymous Data Collected through Our Websites
In addition to the information you provide when you use our websites, FPCW and its web managers use technology to collect anonymous usage information. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access the FPCW websites, the date and time of each visit, the length of each visitor’s stay, and the pages each one views. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the addresses from which they accessed our websites. This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our sites. FPCW uses this anonymous data to improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand the needs and interests of our members and visitors, and to improve our programs and services.
FPCW encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children and youth online. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children and youth under the age of eighteen. If you are under eighteen, please do not give us any personal data. If you have reason to believe that a child or youth has provided personal data on our websites, please contact us and we will endeavor to delete that information. If you are a child or youth under the age of eighteen and using our websites, please do not give any information about yourself, such as your name, address, birth date, telephone number, school, or email address.
Photographs of children and youth engaged in church-related activities may be posted on our websites. No identifying information, other than a child or youth’s name will be included with any photograph posted on the website. A parent or guardian may request that a particular photo, or photos, be removed from our websites at any time by contacting the church office.
Use of Photographs
We routinely use photographs of church members and visitors on our website. We may list names but no other identifying information about the photographs. If you see a photograph on our website and you prefer to not have it appear, please contact the church office to request a deletion.
Use of Other Documents
There may be other FPCW documents (e.g., newsletters, bulletins, or event flyers) that can be accessed via the websites and these documents may contain personal information such as name, phone number and/or email address. If you see this information on our websites and prefer not to have it appear, please contact the church office to request a deletion.
