Collection of Information
Global Servants does not collect personal information without your knowledge including during your visit to our Website. However, Global Servants does at times ask that you provide us with personal information while online. The type of information we collect typically, but not always, corresponds directly with the service you request. For instance, if you make donations, purchase ministry materials, register for events or request information, you will supply us with your name and address and sometimes e-mail address. Global Servants does not sell, lease or rent your confidential information. However, we may need to disclose personal information as required by law, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, search warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request, to enforce our Terms of Service, or site rules; or to protect the safety and security of our visitors and our site.
Website and Online Store Security
Our Website’s e-commerce system uses SSL encryption to protect sensitive data transmissions from your computer to our on-line store website. Global Servants is PCI (payment card industry) compliant as required by the credit card companies. You are able to see when the SSL encryption is active either by the “padlock” icon at the bottom of your browser’s window or by a blue line around the window. In certain areas, password protection is used to protect your privacy and security.
