This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring web site addresses. This information is used by the Church or its service providers for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Church web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through the Church’s public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: The Church does not read any of your private online communications except those you direct to us.
The Church encourages you to review the privacy statements of web sites you choose to navigate to from the Church’s site so that you can understand how those web sites collect, use and share your information.
