Our Commitment To Privacy
At Portland Christian Center, your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available at the bottom of every page on this website.
The Information We Collect:
We collect personally identifiable information, like names, postal addresses, email addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by our visitors. This information is only used to fulfill your specific request, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner, for example to add you to one of our mailing lists.
On some pages, you can submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient's address.
The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing a transaction only to complete that transaction. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
Occasionally, we offer gift-cards by which you can personalize a product you order for another person. Information you provide to us to create a gift-card is only used for that purpose, and it is only disclosed to the person receiving the gift.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our activities and programs. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
All financial information submitted through Portland Christian Center’s web site is processed using 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. SSL encryption is an advanced technology recognized as the online industry security standard. This technology is used by all major e-commerce organizations including banks and credit card companies.
Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
Distribution of Information
We may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; or, (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or, (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these companies for marketing purposes.
How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain through our corporate databases (ACS Technologies / AccessACS). We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. Please allow up to 72 hours for the information to take effect.
You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
Removing your Name from our Mailing List
Our site gives users the opportunity to subscribe to receive newsletters and other communications from us. You will find an opt-out option at the bottom of all communications.
Linking Your Web Site To Our Pages
We encourage you to link to our pages. However, we ask that you abide by the following guidelines when doing so:
- You may not infer or imply that the Portland Christian Center sponsors or in any way approves of your site or any other site.
- You may not frame, display, or alter any material from our web sites, or our web pages directly, in any way that obscures our identification, banners or site navigation. Framing does not allow users to bookmark the framed page. Also, some sites use frames to present content belonging to another site as if it was their own. We feel this is confusing to users and jeopardizes the integrity of our content. The presentation of the material linked to must make it readily apparent that the content is the property of Portland Christian Center or its affiliates.
- You may not present Portland Christian Center web site content as that of the site owner, otherwise misrepresent the content of the Portland Christian Center web pages or misinform users about the origin or ownership of the content of Portland Christian Center web site.
- You may not duplicate content (including recorded broadcast, video, graphics and/or photos) from this or any related Portland Christian Center web sites without express written permission of Portland Christian Center.
