The Wallace Ministries (herein after referred to as “WM”) is committed to protecting the privacy of its donors and supporters. We value the trust of those we deal with, and of the public, and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the personal information that you choose to share with us.
During the course of the various activities of WM, we frequently gather and use personal information. This information may be obtained directly from you or collected from third parties that have the right to disclose this information to us. Anyone from whom we collect such personal information should expect that it will be carefully protected and that any use of or other dealing with this personal information is subject to express or implied consent. Our privacy practices are designed to achieve this.
Defining Personal Information
Personal Information is information about an identifiable individual as defined in applicable Canadian privacy legislation. This includes any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. An individual’s opinions or beliefs, as well as facts about, or related to, the individual may also be considered personal information. Business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories, are not normally considered to be personal information.
Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as business contact information as well, we consider the contact information provided to be business contact information, and therefore may not be subject to the same level of protection as personal information.
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
Personal information collected by WM may include: name, address and other contact information, credit card or bank account information for donation purposes, ministries an individual wishes to support, church affiliation, demographic information such as age and gender.
How Do We Use and Disclose Your Personal Information?
WM collects personal information in order to service your account, understand your giving preferences and provide you with relevant communications.
In some cases it may be necessary to share the information with a third party service provider (such as payment processing) on a confidential basis. When this occurs, we provide only the information that is required to provide the services and strict terms of confidentiality are established and must be adhered to throughout the time required to complete the effort at hand.
Personal information gathered by WM is kept in the strictest confidence. Safeguards are in place to ensure that personal information is not disclosed or shared more widely than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. We also take measures to ensure that the integrity of personal information is maintained and retained only as long as it is required.
We collect, use and disclose personal information only for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in light of the circumstances. We do not rent or sell personal information to any other organization.
Web Site and Electronic Commerce
We use password protocols to protect personal and other information we receive when a service is requested and/or paid for on-line. Our software is routinely updated to maximize protection of such information. The WM web site uses technology features as log-in registration.
