How our website manages private information
 
The West Highland Fellowship Baptist Church website is provided as a service to our church members, attendees and the Christian world at large. It contains a wealth of information and resources that will enrich all Christians. It also provides a door to salvation, that can be opened by people who are not aware of whom the world's savior is, Jesus.
 
We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy informs you about your personal information and how it is processed and used.
 
These policies are only in effect for the web pages and their content, newsletters, registered member's lists, forums, private messages and site statistics. If you use a hyperlink from within our site to access an external site we take no responsibility for their content or privacy polices. Please review the privacy policies of that site when visiting.
 
Cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from our web server and stored in your computer's hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by other web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. Our site uses cookies to identify user preferences; login names and passwords to allow you personalization and access to the registered member's location 'Your Account'. If you have setup your internet browser not to accept cookies then your experience at our site and other web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.
 
Other User Information
We may request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting surveys to provide you with additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about upcoming events or seminars). We maintain a strict NO SPAM policy that means we do not intend to sell, rent or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third party.
 
Site Statistics
Our site maintains detailed statistics. None involve collection of any information on our registered users. They record; type of browsers, operating systems (derived from 'type of browsers') pages visited number of visitors and a myriad of stats on timelines for visitations. These statistics enable us to determine popularity of content on the site's pages. For example, if it is shown through these statistics that no one ever visits page 'x' then that would prompt us to re-evaluate it's usefulness to the visitor. If the information contained therein is still deemed to have value then we would place an announcement on the home page to induce visitors to view it.
 
Children's On-Line Privacy
The West Highland Fellowship Baptist Church places the on-line privacy and safety of our children in the highest regard. Site registration may be done by children under 13 years old; we have no way of knowing this. So it is imperative that the parents of children become involved with their child's access to the Internet. Many browsers and operating systems provide options for the limiting of on-line time, exclusion of offensive sites and other third party software such as Net Accountability that can provide high levels of restrictions. A great resource for kids and parents is http://www.protectkids.com/ .
