Serving2Touch.com is a ministry of First Baptist Church, Midland, Texas ("FBC") and the Serving2Touch website is owned and controlled by FBC. The following statement describes how the privacy of visitors to the Serving2Touch website is protected.
We do not collect any personal information about visitors to the Serving2Touch website. We do not know nor can we ascertain a visitor's name, address, phone number, drivers license or Social Security number, date of birth, marital status, bank account numbers, nor email address. We cannot access anything stored on the computers used by visitors to our website.
Serving2Touch.com employs online forms which allow visitors to our website to request copies of The Jesus Film, or to respond to a presentation of the Gospel. Additional forms may be added in the future for other purposes. If you choose to provide any information via those forms, you do so on a strictly voluntary basis, but you may rest assured that such information will be used only for the purpose described, and will not be shared with third parties.
In the unlikely event that FBC is required by a governmental agency or court to turn over any information collected via this website, we will comply to the extent required by law.
Cookies are small bits of data which are placed on your hard drive by certain websites in order to identify you as a repeat visitor to those sites. The vast majority of cookies are innocuous and are used for such things as storing passwords or membership ID's for sites that require them.
The Serving2Touch website does not currently (as of December, 2001) issue any cookies for any reason. That could change in the future, if interactive features are added to the site, but any such changes will be clearly communicated. And, in any event, any such cookies will never be used to collect personal information about visitors to our site.
The Serving2Touch website resides on a server maintained by a third-party webhost. A standard feature of such servers is the creation of what are called "referer logs," which contain certain data about every visit to each website housed on those servers. If analyzed properly, this log can be useful in understanding how people find our website, and what features they use most often. The following information is collected in the referer log for the Serving2Touch website:
- The visitor's IP address, which is a code identifying the visitor's Internet Service Provider (such as America Online, Quik Internet, Apex2000, NetWest Online, etc.)
- The referring address, which is the webpage from which the visitor came to the current site. For example, if a visitor found FBC's website via the Google search engine, the Google address would be shown as the referring address.
- If the visitor arrived at the Serving2Touch website via a search engine query, the log shows what words or phrases the visitor used in that query.
- The date and time the visitor came to the current page, and how long the visitor spent on that page.
- A list of all the pages visited within our website.
The referer log does NOT capture any personal information, such as name or email address, nor can the log be used to identify any specific visitor. In any event, because this log generates a separate entry for each page visited, it is very voluminous and difficult to work with. The log contains only the most recent few days of activity, and is not reviewed by any member of the FBC staff. The FBC webmaster has access to the log, and reviews it periodically.
Incidentally, the creation of this log is not controlled by, nor can it be modified by FBC.
Links to other websites
This website may contain links to other sites. FBC is not responsible for the privacy practices of those other sites, other than the FBC website (www.fbc-midland.org). This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by the Serving2Touch website.
Changes to this Statement
FBC reserves the right to change or update this Website Privacy Statement at its discretion. We will make reasonable efforts to highlight any significant changes to this statement on our website, but if you are concerned, please check this page periodically.
In any event, we will never change our policy of not collecting individually-identifiable information from visitors to our website without their knowledge, nor will we ever share personal data provided voluntarily by visitors with third parties, except as provided above.
