Privacy Policy

The OhioGuidestone Public Website Privacy Policy has been developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the highest quality services with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our consumers/clients/funders/staff. The Policy guides how we collect, store and use information, and it will be assessed periodically against new technologies, business practices and our users' changing needs.

 

OhioGuidestone  may, from time to time, modify this Public Website Privacy Policy to reflect legal, technological and other developments. In that event, the changes will appear at this location. Our Policy recognizes that Personally-Identifiable Information (I.e. name, address, e-mail addresses, etc.) deserves protection and security.

 

We are committed to using all reasonable efforts to abide by the following Policy statement: Collection. Personally-Identifiable Information will only be collected to the extent that OhioGuidestone deems reasonably necessary to serve a legitimate business purpose.  We currently have no Website collection methods; however, information may be sent to OhioGuidestone via email. OhioGuidestone does not download to your computer or use any data collection cookies or spy ware.

 

Notification. Website users will be notified (usually at the point where Personally-Identifiable Information is collected) as to the uses that OhioGuidestone may make of the Personally-Identifiable Information collected from them.

 

Internal & External Agency Distribution of Personally-Identifiable Information. Information that is forwarded to OhioGuidestone as a result of using the Public OhioGuidestone Website will be maintained in that department's databases and not shared with other departments. For example, when someone forwards a resume to OhioGuidestone for a possible job opportunity, this information will not be forwarded to the Marketing Department for fundraising activities.

 

We will not share Information that is forwarded to OhioGuidestone as a result of using the OhioGuidestone  Public Website with any outside entity.

 

Security. Appropriate safeguards will be implemented to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of Personally-Identifiable Information from Website Users.

 

Children: Collection and use of information from children under the age of thirteen will be made in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Act of 1998.
Questions and comments? The OhioGuidestone Public Website Privacy Policy has been developed out of respect for the privacy preferences and choices of our Users. We have established procedures to ensure that every reasonable effort is made to address your concerns. If you have any further questions, please contact Joe Ziegler at joseph.ziegler@OhioGuidestone.org
