We collect your personal information because:
If you wish to utilize Churchee Account, Churchee needs your information for purposes of processing and transmitting information to drive the correct data and content between servers and apps for your experience.
Also, there are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better service. For example:
If you use a bulletin board, streaming service, or chat room on a Churchee website or Service you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Churchee is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by disclosing it in such forms or by enabling certain user features, Churchee will collect that information from your interaction and the information will become publicly available.
Churchee takes your privacy very seriously. Churchee does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers or any other third party. If you wish to utilize the Churchee Account, Churchee discloses your information to third party service providers and institutions for purposes of processing and transmitting information to drive the correct data and content between servers and apps for your experience.
There are also times when it may be advantageous for Churchee to make certain personal information about you available to companies that Churchee has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Churchee to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, extend credit, fulfill customer orders, deliver products to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in strict accordance with Churchee’s policies, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Churchee website.
At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we reasonably determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
If, however, you prefer not to enable cookies, you can disable them in your browser. Please note that certain features of the Churchee websites and Churchee online products will not be available once cookies are disabled. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We also use Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their website.
Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We then use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our site.
We also may use other Google Analytics tools, such as Demographics and Interest Reporting, which enable us to learn more about the characteristics and interests of the users who visit our Site, and Remarketing with Google Analytics, which enables us to provide relevant advertising on different websites and online services.
Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google analytics without affecting how you visit our site – for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across websites you use, visit this Google page.
We use this information, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
In some of our email messages we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Churchee website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email. In addition, we use pixel tags — tiny graphic images — to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site.
Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we’re sending only messages that are of interest to our customers. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a customer.
Churchee takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. The Churchee websites use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser like Safari or Google.

Despite our best efforts, errors sometimes do occur. If you identify any personal information that is out-of-date, incorrect or incomplete, let us know and we will make the corrections promptly and use every reasonable effort to communicate these changes to other parties who may have inadvertently received incorrect or out-of-date personal information from us. In the event that you delete your information, such deletion may make it impossible for Churchee to continue offering you it’s services. Churchee retains personal information only as long as we are required to for our business relationship or as required by Federal or Provincial laws, subject to reasonable industry practices for records retention. Churchee has appropriate procedures in place with respect to the destruction, deletion and disposition of personal information when it is no longer required by Churchee, subject to applicable law.

This Section governs personal data, information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, gathered from data subjects located in the EU only. General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) Information The following information describes our commitments to you under EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The GDPR makes a distinction between organizations that process personal data for their own purposes (known as "Data Controllers") and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as "Data Processors"). Churchee only acts as a Data Controller for very limited types of data, such as the information you enter when you register an account with us or the information you submit when purchasing our software. Churchee is the Data Controller for information provided by our users when we provide our Services. Churchee is the Data Processor for information provided by our third party partners when they provide us with services, such as our payment partners processing payments on behalf of our users.
When We Act as a Data Controller When we process your data as a Data Controller, the following applies. We collect, use, and share your personal data where we are satisfied that we have an appropriate legal basis to do this. This may be because:
Subject to certain exemptions, and in some cases dependent upon the processing activity we are undertaking, EU residents have certain rights in relation to their personal data:
We retain your personal data for as long as necessary to provide you with our services, or for other important purposes such as complying with legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements.
We ask that you please attempt to resolve any issues regarding your data protection or requests with us first before contacting the relevant supervisory authority. If you would like to exercise any of the rights described above, please send a request to [email protected] In your message, please indicate the right you would like to exercise and the information that you would like to access, review, correct, or delete.
We may ask you for additional information to confirm your identity and for security purposes, before disclosing the requested personal data. We may not always be able to fully address your request, for example if it would impact the duty of confidentiality we owe to others, or if we are legally entitled to deal with the request in a different way.
When Churchee Acts as a Data Processor
Where we process your data in our capacity as a Data Processor, the processing of your data will not be governed by the foregoing provisions (“When We Act As Data Controller”), but you can contact the Data Controller directly to learn about their processing of your information and to exercise your rights, or we will forward your request directly to them at your request. Churchee’s “privacy by design” approach requires that our default user data protection levels be at the highest setting by default. In the unlikely event of breach, Churchee will notify data subjects and Supervisory Authorities (SAs) in the EU according to procedures provided in GDPR Articles 33 and 34.
The following provisions govern information collected in reliance on the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework Principles for transfers of personal data from the EU to the United States. Churchee adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles (“Principles”) and is committed to subject to the Principles all personal data received from the EU in reliance on the Privacy Shield. Individuals from whom Churchee collects personal information under the Privacy Shield have the right to access their personal data by contacting Churchee at [email protected] As a result of certification to the Privacy Shield, Churchee is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission or any other U.S. authorized statutory body.
Notice and Choice
In instances in which Churchee is not the controller or collector of the personal information, but only a processor, it has no means of providing individuals with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of their personal information or providing notices when individuals are first asked to provide personal information to Churchee. In such instances, Churchee will comply with the instructions of the controller of such information; provide appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and to the extent appropriate, assist the controller in responding to individuals exercising their rights under the Principles.
In the context of an onward transfer Churchee has responsibility for the processing of personal information it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Churchee shall remain liable under the Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless the organization proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Disclosures to Third Parties
Churchee will not make disclosures of personal information to third parties without notifying individuals that such disclosure may be made. In those instances in which Churchee collects personal information from individuals, prior to disclosing personal information to a third party, Churchee shall notify the individual of the fact that their information may be disclosed. If individuals do not wish to have their personal information disclosed to any third parties, the individual should not register for such Churchee services. With regard to Churchee Giving, donor information will be shared with the Gift Recipient. The Gift Recipient may utilize a third party for purposes of receipt and management of such information and donors should review the privacy policies of Gift Recipient in this regard. In the case of third parties (e.g., churches) for whom Churchee gathers personal information, Churchee shall enter into a contract that provides that such data may only be processed for limited and specified purposes consistent with consent provided and that such third party will provide the same level of protection as is required by the Principles. For third party agent recipients (e.g., payment processors) of personal information, Churchee shall: transfer only such data for limited and specified purposes; ascertain that the agent is obligated to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Principles, and; upon notice, take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing.
Churchee shall take reasonable steps to protect personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Churchee has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. Churchee cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.
Churchee shall only process personal information in a way that is compatible with and relevant for the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by those who provided the information. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Churchee shall take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use.
In those instances in which Churchee collects personal information directly from individuals, Churchee shall allow those individuals access to their personal information and allow the individual to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in the case in question or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated. As noted above, you may not delete all information if you wish to maintain an account with Churchee and Churchee is required to retain some information with regard to Churchee Giving transactions and the applicable users.
Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability
A) Dispute Resolution If you filed a complaint with Churchee and it has not been properly addressed, JAMS is designated by Churchee as the independent dispute resolution body to address complaints regarding Churchee’s collection of personal information and provide appropriate recourse. Such body will not charge the complaining party for its services. Follow this link to the complaint submission form for the above referenced independent dispute resolution body. and limitations as stated in the discussion of EU-US Privacy Shield.
B) Binding Arbitration If your claims as to data covered by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield have not been remedied through dispute resolution directly with Churchee or through independent dispute resolution as described above, such “residual claims” may be heard by a “Privacy Shield Panel” composed of one or three arbitrators as agreed upon by the parties. The Privacy Shield Panel may only award individual-specific, non-monetary equitable relief (e.g. access, correction, deletion of the individual’s data in question) necessary to remedy the violation of the Principles only with respect to the individual. Damages, costs, fees and other remedies may not be awarded, and each party bears its own attorney’s fees. This arbitration option is only available for an individual to determine for such “residual claims” whether Churchee has violated its obligations under the Principles as to that individual and whether any such violation remains fully or partially unremedied.
C) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) The GDPR replaces Directive 95/46/EC and becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018. The following statement is intended to supplement the preceding discussion of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. As to personal data collected and controlled by Churchee, subject to the qualifications and limitations stated in the preceding discussion, EU data subjects retain their full rights to be informed of the purposes of our processing activities at collection; to withdraw consent; to access, rectify, transport, and erase their personal data; to object to processing for direct marketing efforts; and to object when subjected to automated processing decisions. As to personal data collected by third parties, and as to which Churchee is a mere processor, EU data subjects should contact the controller (e.g., church or ministry) with regard to their rights to be informed of the purposes of our processing activities at collection; to withdraw consent; to access, rectify, transport, and erase their personal data; to object to processing for direct marketing efforts; and to object when subjected to automated processing decisions. Such rights may be subject to certain qualifications
Our Data Processing Officers will assist EU residents with these requests free of charge and may be contacted at [email protected]
Churchee understands that the adoption of global data security practices is not a one-time activity.
Churchee’s “privacy by design” approach requires that our default user data protection levels be at the highest setting by default. In the unlikely event of breach, Churchee will notify data subjects and Supervisory Authorities (SAs) in the EU according to procedures provided in GDPR Articles 33 and 34.
