GCF Respects Your Right to Privacy
When you give you are entrusting us with very important financial and personal information, and we understand that you may have concerns about privacy issues on the Internet, and gcfchurch.ca has placed great emphasis on protecting the privacy of our online guests. Your personal information, although it is shared with gcfchurch.ca, belongs to you. When we refer to “personal information”, we mean any information about an identifiable individual, whether it concerns your email address, where you live, your interests or which ministries or missions you support. We feel that it is your right to be able to give in a safe and secure environment, and to know how your personal information is being used.
Your personal information will never be shared, traded, sold or used in any manner not explicitly approved by you. We do not swap mailing lists, share donor information or sell phone numbers. Only gcfchurch.ca and certain approved staff of GCF are allowed to access this personal information. The storage of personal information helps protect you against credit card fraud, because the records of all transactions are kept for reference in the case of a dispute. During the course of your transaction, your credit card information is processed by TD Merchant Services. The only other circumstances under which we would divulge any personal information to a third party is upon subpoena or order from a legitimate court, police agency, the CRA, or if requested by a credit card issuer in the case of a dispute. In any case when your information is shared, gcfchurch.ca will demand reasonable assurance that third parties will protect your information in conformity with our privacy practices.
Privacy is important to you, and it is important to us.
