MinistryWatch Privacy Statement
Collecting and Using Personal Information.
Wall Watchers has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate its commitment to privacy. Wall Watchers is very aware of the privacy concerns of our readers and the members of the general public who visit our Web sites. We share your concerns and want you to know that we are committed to ensuring that when you visit and navigate our sites (www.wallwatchers.org, www.ministrywatch.com, and www.thegoodsteward.com) and when you communicate with us via our sites, we will not collect personal information about you, unless you provide that information while using the Wall Watchers network of websites, except as necessary to satisfy any legal, judicial, administrative, or governmental requirements or requests. If you do elect to provide personal information to us voluntarily, in no case will we sell, license or transmit for any reason that information outside of Wall Watchers, except as necessary to satisfy any legal, judicial, administrative, or governmental requirements or requests, or unless we do so in accordance with any authorization you have given us. Our goal is to provide you with a safe, secure, and enjoyable online experience.
From time to time, we may use an external service provider to request personal information from you at our sites in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.
Should you send us your comments or questions via e-mail to any mail box provided on our sites, we will share your communications with our customer service representatives and those employees or agents most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.
Please note that, unless we expressly advise you otherwise, the e-mail facilities at our sites do not provide a means for completely secure and private communications between us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider to be confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone toll free at 1-866-364-9980.
Other Information: "Cookies."
Readers should also be aware that when you visit our Web site, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with "usage data", such as the number of visitors we receive, what pages are visited most often, and what browser and domain name you are using. This data helps us to continually improve the usefulness of the information we provide at this site.
We may also use what is known as "cookie" technology. A "cookie" is a non-executable element of data that a Web site can send to your browser when you link to that site. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the Web site is then able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract personal information about you. Most browsers provide a simple procedure that will enable you to control whether you want to receive cookies by notifying you when a Web site is about to deposit a cookie file.
Linking to Other Sites.
From time to time, this site may provide links to other sites, not owned or controlled by Wall Watchers, that we think might be useful or of interest to you. We cannot, however, be responsible for the content or privacy practices used by other site owners.
Changes to This Statement.
The foregoing Web Privacy Statement is effective as of July 14th, 2000. Wall Watchers may change this Statement from time to time. This Statement is not intended to and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Wall Watchers subscribes to the Peace Pledge and is a Partner in Peacemaking through Peacemaker Ministries. We acknowledge (1) our concern that resources not be dissipated on wasteful litigation; and (2) our commitment to resolve disputes and conflicts privately and amicably if at all possible. In the highly unlikely event that you and Wall Watchers are ever unable to resolve a dispute between them, we hereby agree to resolve the dispute without resort to civil litigation. Any such dispute or conflict shall be submitted to mediation, under the rules of Peacemaker Ministries (406-256-1583) or such other alternative dispute resolution entity or person as the parties may from time to time mutually agree in writing, and governed by the laws of North Carolina. Either party may invoke this mediation process by written notice to the other, succinctly outlining the area of dispute and serving a copy on Peacemaker Ministries, which is authorized to select the designated mediator(s). Within two weeks of designation, the designated mediator(s) will convene a process whereby both sides will be provided an opportunity to present their position, both in writing and orally with the assistance of counsel, unless both parties mutually agree to present the matter without counsel. The designated mediator(s) shall then seek to mediate a resolution of the matter between the parties. If the mediation is unsuccessful, the parties shall move to binding and non-appealable arbitration under the rules of the Institute for Christian Conciliation (Peacemaker Ministries). The decision of the mediator(s) shall be final, non-appealable, and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. This method shall be the sole remedy for any controversy or claim arising out of this Agreement and the parties expressly waive their respective right to file a lawsuit in any civil court against one another for such disputes, except to enforce an arbitration decision. The parties agree that any claim or dispute hereunder shall expire if not brought within one (1) year of arising, notwithstanding any other statute of limitations.
