The Episcopal Diocese of Maine is committed to safeguarding the privacy of visitors to our website. To protect your privacy, we have set security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control gathered from our website.
The content on the Episcopal Diocese of Maine’s website, including blog articles and other content set forth in the site, is compiled from a number of public sources that, to the best of the Episcopal Diocese of Maine’s team’s knowledge, is true and correct. It is our intent to present only accurate information. In the event any information contained herein is erroneous, however, the Episcopal Diocese of Maine accepts no liability or responsibility. Accordingly, all information provided on this site, including in the Episcopal Diocese of Maine’s blog articles, is provided “as-is.” The information contained on the Episcopal Diocese of Maine website is provided for informational purposes only and should not be construed as legal advice.
We require you to provide us with certain information about yourself when you request or access certain features, products, and services from this site. We also collect information from you when you request to be added to e-newsletter lists, participate in any diocesan surveys, or when you respond to requests for feedback.
The information we collect may include information from which you may be personally identified, such as name, mailing address, telephone numbers, and email address. All credit card and e-check transactions are handled through a secure gateway, which means credit card numbers and related information are not collected or stored on the Episcopal Diocese of Maine site.
This website uses Google Analytics to help analyze how visitors use the site. Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The anonymous information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors’ use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for the Episcopal Diocese of Maine only.
We will never use Google Analytics to track or to collect any personally identifiable information. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifiable information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.
The Episcopal Diocese of Maine’s website is not directed to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect information, including personal data from children or other individuals who are not legally able to use our website. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have collected personal data from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete it, unless we are legally obligated to retain such data. Registration data collected for Maine Episcopal Youth Events is provided by childrens’ parents and is only used for that event’s roster and related communications. Contact us at [email protected] if you believe that we have mistakenly or unintentionally collected information from a child under the age of 13.
If you do provide us with personal information, we will abide by any limitation on the purposes for which it will be used that is expressed where it is collected, and we will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of the Diocese of Maine unless (1) you expressly authorize us to do so, or (2) it is necessary to allow our contractors or agents to provide services for us, or (3) in order to provide products or services to you, or (4) otherwise as required or permitted by law.
We publish several email newsletters. Information collected in the process of subscribing to the newsletters or other diocesan sponsored lists and social media is not shared with any other organization or individual except for the reasons given above.
We restrict access to personal information collected about you at our website to our employees, or others who need to know that information to provide services to you or in the course of conducting our normal business operations. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information.
For your convenience, we may provide links to other websites and web pages that we do not control. Links to other websites are provided for informational purposes only. While we believe the information to be accurate, we are not making any representations or warranties, nor do we accept liability or responsibility, as to the accuracy of the information contained on them. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any websites or pages not under our control and we do not endorse any of these websites or pages, the services or products described or offered on such sites or pages, or any of the content contained on those sites or pages.
