Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Cultivation Ministries is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to cultivate team-based, comprehensive, and intergenerational disciple-making Catholic youth ministries by training, supporting, and resourcing adult and teen leaders.

Information Collection

Cultivation Ministries is the sole owner of the information collected on www.cultivationministries.com. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Cultivation Ministries collects information from our visitors at several different points on the Cultivation Ministries site. In order to provide our visitors the greatest level of comfort on the Cultivation Ministries site, we do not collect personally identifiable information until we have notified the site visitor of how the information will be used. We do not share personally identifiable information collected on the Cultivation Ministries site with third parties without the visitor’s prior consent, and, except for routine Cultivation Ministries registrant communications, we do not distribute unsolicited newsletters or promotions to visitors who have shared their e-mail addresses with us.

Whenever personal profile information (such as age and profession) is collected in connection with a specialized service such as an e-newsletter subscription, responses are optional but are encouraged so we can assemble aggregate data that will help us better understand and serve our visitors.

Information Use

The information collected is used to fulfill a visitor’s request for customer service, support, programs, and other services, as well as to respond to inquiries about our offerings that we believe may be of interest to the visitor. In addition, Cultivation Ministries uses the information a member provides to keep our database current with contact information, transactions and preferences in communication.

Legal Disclaimer

Though we attempt to preserve visitor privacy whenever possible, we may be required to disclose personal information when required by law or when we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to comply with judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on Cultivation Ministries, or to protect ourselves, our site, or our visitors. Cultivation Ministries shall not be liable for any damages, compensatory or otherwise, based on any cause of action that arises from such personal information being disclosed, provided we acted in good faith and have not willfully disclosed such information with an intent to injure. The claimant shall have the full burden of proof that Cultivation Ministries willfully disclosed information with an intent to cause injury.

Links

The Cultivation Ministries site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, of Cultivation Ministries, are not responsible for the privacy practices of other such sites. We encourage our visitors to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Security

The Cultivation Ministries site takes very substantial precautions to protect our visitors’ information. Cultivation Ministries maintains practices and procedures designed to ensure the security, integrity, and confidentiality of registrant information. We restrict and limit access to our database information only to those who need it to carry out their business functions. We will monitor and adopt, as appropriate, new technological improvements that are designed to aid in ensuring the accuracy and security of our database information. However, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we make reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information as it is being transmitted using our secure server and once we receive it, we cannot warrant the security of information you transmit to us. We advise you not to transmit your credit card information, or other important information, via unsecured e-mail. Please submit your personal information using our secure server, or call and we will be pleased to take your information over the phone.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If a visitor’s personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, e-mail or postal address), or if a visitor no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or deactivate visitors’ personally identifiable information. Send us an e-mail at info@cultivationministries.com. Or, contact us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed at the bottom of this page.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement on the Cultivation Ministries site at (link), and other places we deem appropriate so our visitors are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

If, however, we would like to use visitors’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify visitors via e-mail. Visitors will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if visitors have opted out of all communication with the site, or deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect visitor information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our website notifying visitors of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also e-mail visitors, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
