THEBRIDGEONLINE.CA (Hereafter referred to as “THE BRIDGE”) respects your Right to Privacy and has placed great emphasis on the safeguarding and appropriate use of the information you submit.
Your personal information, although it is shared with THE BRIDGE, belongs to you. It 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.
When referring to “personal information”, we mean any information about an identifiable individual, including your email address, where you live, your age or which ministries you support.
We want you to know how your personal information is being used and to be able to complete transactions in a safe and secure environment. In view of any financial giving we are required to store your personal information by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
Access to the information you provide is restricted only to staff and approved personnel of The Bridge Church. This might include information like the average donation amount, how donations break down by geographic area and which ministry or area of giving receives the most economic activity. None of these statistics will ever reveal any personally identifiable or individual information. Having this information allows THE BRIDGE to better serve the community and to bring a better understanding of how to effectively communicate about THE BRIDGE to its users.
The storage of personal information also helps protect you against credit card fraud, because the records of all transactions are kept for reference in the case of a dispute. The only other circumstances under which we would divulge any personal donor 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, should your information be shared, THE BRIDGE will demand reasonable assurance that third parties will protect your information in line with our own privacy practices.
Privacy is important to you, and it is important to us.
