Song of Life is sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet. We believe it is important that you understand how we treat the information you may provide to us. Unless specifically stated otherwise, the information you provide is never shared with anyone other than the individuals responsible for the maintenance of the Song of Life Website.
This privacy statement applies to information collected by web addresses in the songoflifeumc.org and other domains owned and operated by Song of Life United Methodist Church.
How We Gather Information
To save you time and make our web services even easier to use, you may create a Song of Life portal account using your personal information. You may do this by visiting http://www.songoflifeumc.org. The Song of Life portal system saves your information and ties it to your email addresses and password. The next time you visit the Song of Life website, you can simply enter your email address and password.
Song of Life UMC may occasionally provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact and demographic information such as name and address. We may share aggregated demographic information about our user within the congregation. This information does not identify individual users.
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track how visitors interact with the site, and to optimize the site based on this information.
When you log into your Song of Life portal account you may select the "Remember me" check box to set a persistent cookie to store your password, so you don't have to enter it more than once. You can remove the portal login cookie by clicking the "Logout" link.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, such as contests or surveys, will be limited and you may need to reenter personal information when you register for events.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
Song of Life safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. Likewise, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Access To Your Personal Information
You always have access to the information we have about you. To review and update your personal contact information, simply click http://www.songoflifeumc.org and log in with your email address and password, then click Your Details. We encourage you to review your preferences regularly to keep the information current. You may also contact the web master to have the information changed or removed.
