St. Michael Catholic Church has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. St. Michael Catholic Church will consider the data we collect through this Website as private confidential information, and we will keep it private and confidential. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website:
All the information that we collect from each visitor is intentionally submitted by the visitor. We use the information we collect to setup individual donor accounts, to process the charges and payments submitted for donations.
We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify parishinors about news and events of our church only if they sign up for alerts/notifications.
St. Michael Catholic Church does not sell, trade, or rent the information we collect to others.
We use a secure Web server for the handling of all credit card data and membership information. The secure server (SSL) encrypts or converts the data into unreadable code, which allows users to enter private information and credit card data safely. Our server offers the 128-bit encryption. Our Website is hosted by a company that maintains and protects the server with the proper firewalls and industry standard security measures which makes clandestine entry by a hacker nearly impossible.
All of the parishioner information, and credit card data we collect is protected against unauthorized access. No complete credit card numbers are stored on the Website or in our database. Once a charge is submitted we no longer have access to the complete card number. A Username and Password are required for access to the protected area where members/parishioners of our church are able to view and make changes to their data.
