Privacy Policy

The network of Web Sites (collectively, the "CMG Web Sites") operated by Christian.com Media Group, Inc., or its affiliates or subsidiaries ("CMG" or "Christian.com Media Group"), is comprised of various Web sites and Web pages. Christian.com Media Group, Inc. (CMG) is committed to maintaining your trust and confidence. The following online privacy policy is intended to protect and secure the personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified) you provide to us online.

Anti-spam Policy

We are committed to helping fight unwanted email ("spam"). We will never send spam email, and we will never sell or give your email address to anyone, PERIOD. If you have received spam from a made-up (i.e., "spoofed") Christian.com email address, rest assured it did not originate from us, nor do we have anything to do with the e-mail you received. If you think you received spam from a legitimate Christian.com email user, forward a copy of the email you received to ToReportSpam @Christian.com (no space), and we will research to see if it is from a legitimate Christian.com email user, and take appropriate action if necessary.

Awareness
CMG provides this online privacy policy to inform you of the way your information is collected and used as well as to make you aware of our security practices. We also provide you with the opportunity to remove your name from our email mailing list, if you desire to do so.

Information We Collect
There are three different ways in which we collect information from visitors on CMG Web Sites:

1. From online requests for information (i.e. e-mail newsletters, contact forms, etc.); 2. From online requests for materials or orders from us (i.e.purchasing a product, or committing your life to Christ.); From user-submitted information for possible inclusion on the website (i.e., Life Stories or church information).

The information we collect online may include name, address, city, state, ZIP/postal code, telephone number, e-mail address, and, in the case of online shopping, credit card number and expiration date. In order to continuously improve our service to you and tailor our future communications to you, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your demographics, comments, professional interests, and contact preferences.

How the Information is Used
CMG uses your information to understand your needs and provide you with better online service. We may use your information to complete a transaction or to personalize our Web site for you. If you so desire, we may also use this information to update you on projects and activities. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for any other purposes. We also provide you the opportunity to remove your name from our email mailing list, if you desire to do so. Please review the corresponding section of this privacy policy below.

In addition, CMG will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. We may periodically send you e-mail announcing news. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive mailings from us as well.

No Sharing of Personal Information
CMG never sells, rents, leases or exchanges your personal information with other organizations. CMG assures you that the identity of all who contact us through this Web site will be kept confidential. CMG may occasionally send mailings on behalf of other organizations or ministries when their interests align with CMG. Use of your personal information will be limited to further the activities of CMG and its partner organizations.

Security
CMG is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the proper use of information, we have established and implemented appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Cookies
From time to time, we may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie can't read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to recognize you when you return to our sites, or to identify which areas of our network of Web sites you have visited (i.e. e-commerce sites, etc.). We may use this information to better personalize the content you see on our sites.

Many Web sites place cookies on your hard drive. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. Your browser can refuse all cookies, or show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at CMG Web Sites and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

Children's Online Privacy
We are concerned about the privacy of young children and do not knowingly collect any personal information from a child under 13. We encourage you to become involved with your child's access to the Internet and to our site in order to ensure that his or her privacy is well protected.
