Disclaimer

Grey Ministries is committed to providing clients, customers and members with exceptional service. Providing this service involves the collection, use and disclosure of some personal information about clients, customers and members so protecting personal information is a high priority.

While I have always respected clients, customers and members privacy and have safeguarded their personal information, I've strengthened my commitment to protecting personal information as a result of British Columbia’s Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA).  

I will inform clients, customers and members of why and how I collect, use and disclose their personal information, obtain their consent where required, and only handle their personal information in a manner that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances.

This Personal Information Protection Policy, in compliance with PIPA, outlines the principles and practices I will follow in protecting clients’, customers’ and members’ personal information. Grey Ministries privacy commitment includes ensuring the accuracy, confidentiality, and security of all clients’, customers’ and members’ personal information and allowing clients, customers and members to request access to, and correction of, their personal information.

This Personal Information Protection Policy applies to Grey Ministries. This policy also applies to any service providers collecting, using or disclosing personal information on behalf of Grey Ministries.

I'm committed to protecting your anonymity and will not sell your information. 

Do I use 'cookies'?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. I use cookies to help compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that I can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

      Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. I may also use trusted third party services that track this information on my behalf.

Third Party Disclosure

I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist me in operating my website, conducting business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. I may also release your information if I believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce site policies, or protect my or others' rights, property, or safety. 

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Third Party Links

Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my site and welcome any feedback about said sites.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA I agree to the following:

Users can visit my site anonymously

Once this privacy policy is created, I will add a link to it on my home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering my website.

My Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

      On my Privacy Policy Page

Users are able to change their personal information:

      By emailing me

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking

Children Online Privacy Statement

I do not market to children under 13. 

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

I collect your email address in order to:

      Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM I agree to the following:

      NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses

      Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way

      Include the physical address of my business

      Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
