St. Paul Lutheran Church is committed to protecting the privacy rights of all visitors to our website and recognizes that any personal identifying information shared with us must be protected. This policy is intended to inform you about the type of information we collect and its use and storage so you are able to make informed decisions about sharing information with us.
Collection of Personal Information
Although some personal identifying information may be required to participate in certain features offered through our website, users only provide their information on a voluntary basis. We collect such information though our Contact Form, and, in addition, we engage with the following companies to perform specific church-related functions: tithe.ly to facilitate online financial giving and MailChimp to send the P.O.E.M (Pastor’s Office E-Mail). These companies require personal information to perform their functions; if you have concerns about how these companies use personal information, please review their privacy policies at:
If their policies are not satisfactory, please do not use their services.
St. Paul Lutheran Church’s website may create links to the websites of ministry partners, affiliates or other entities. Every effort is made to only provide links to websites that meet similar standards for maintaining privacy; however, we cannot impose our standards on these websites and are not responsible for their content. If any of these sites collect personal information, please review their privacy policies before proceeding.
Policy for Children
We encourage parents and guardians to actively participate in their children’s internet use and privacy safeguarding. Parents and guardians should instruct their children never to provide their real names, ages and other specific, personal information on this or any other website without first getting your permission.
We will retain personal information about our users only for the period necessary to fulfill the functions outlined in this policy unless required by law.
