ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY

Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM) is committed to donor privacy.

We respect your privacy and do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists. We may disclose some personal information to select third parties in order to more effectively target our donor communications.

 

We value your trust and assure you that we will always strive to be responsible in our management, truthful in our advertising, and cost-effective in our fundraising.

 

To most efficiently use the resources you entrusted to us, we may disclose to select third parties information regarding donation history. Information of this kind is used to enable NCM to identify others like yourself interested in partnering with local churches to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Information provided in donation history may include statistics such as total number of donations and value of donations for a set period of time. This information disclosure is done very carefully to ensure that your personal information is protected.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at info@ncm.org or call 1.800.310.6362

 

NCM is committed to stewarding any and all donations and funds responsibly. We work to ensure that the gifts and funds are managed with integrity and will be used to meet the represented needs in the most effective way possible. We are committed to the highest standard of stewardship excellence. We will make every effort to honor any designation or preference you have stated. In certain circumstances, where a project is overfunded or cannot be carried out in accordance with your preference, the funds will be used for similar projects approved by our management team.

 

As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user’s activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to the NCM site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, google.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. We use the information we record to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer this website more effectively, and to gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors come from and their behavior on our site. If you wish to opt out of this type of data collection, you can disable cookies in your web browser. Please note that disabling cookies may diminish the experience of the websites you visit, including NCM.

 

In some cases, our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make donations. We collect your willingly submitted contact information (such as your email address), unique identifiers (in some cases, a donor account number), and financial information (such as a credit card type, number, and expiration date). Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, as well as to provide receipts and other information about NCM to our customers. The visitor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. Users may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the “opt out” section below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for donations pledged. Unique identifiers (such as a NCM account number) may be collected from website visitors to assist in matching current donation information with donor history in our record systems.

 

Those who choose to register through various “guestbook”-type features (including prayer messages) on our site may choose to give us certain contact information (such as their email address). These features may also request optional demographic information (such as country of residence or age). Unless you opt out, we may use this contact information to send you additional information about NCM and its programs. Your voluntarily provided contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. You may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the “opt out” section below.

 

Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (such as their email address) as well as a variety of demographic and practical questions. We may use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about NCM. The user’s contact information may also be used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the “opt out” section below.

 

Opt out

Most points on our site provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request contact information about the visitor. There are, however, a few places where users do not have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications. Should you wish to opt-out, please email info@ncm.org or call 1.800.310.6362 and we will unsubscribe you from receiving further communications from us.

SECURITY INFORMATION

 

Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM) Security Policy

All response forms requesting confidential information (such as credit card numbers, physical address, email address, or phone numbers) on NCM’s website use a secure method of communication known as “Secure Sockets Layer” or “SSL.” This type of encryption ensures that any personal information, especially banking information, transmitted through our website is collected and transmitted in as safe of a manner as possible. When you are using a page that is collecting sensitive information, ensure that the web address begins with “https://” instead of “http://”. This ensures that you are using a secure SSL form of encryption and your information will be safely transmitted. If your browser doesn't support SSL technology, you will receive an error message when trying to access our SSL pages.

If you have any questions about the security practices of NCM, please email us at info@ncm.org.
