Our Use of Personal and Non-Personal Information
We collect two kinds of information about our online visitors: personal and non-personal. Visitors are not required to register to access the public pages of our sites. Non-personal information is collected to track statistical information regarding the number and type of guests visiting NPM sites in order to guide our efforts to improve our sites. The non-personal information we monitor includes the browser type and operating system used by our visitors; areas of the sites visited; date and time of access; host or service-provider information; and identification of the referring site. This information is used exclusively for our internal purposes and is not disclosed to any non-affiliated third parties.
Personal information that can identify a visitor, such as name, address, or contact information, is collected only when voluntarily offered and solely for purposes that are clearly identified on our sites. Access to pages with content specific to a ministry area and/or its constituents is password-protected and requires pre-registration. Personal information acquired through registration is kept confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties except as may be required by law. NPM does not seek personal information from children online.
Our Use of "Cookies"
Our Use of Analytics
NPM may use Google Analytics to help us gather details about the use of our websites. Google Analytics is a Web analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their sites. Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. For more information, please visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
The privacy of communication over the Internet cannot be guaranteed, because the Internet is not a secure medium. NPM does not assume responsibility for any harm, loss, or damage you may incur by the sending of personal or confidential information over the Internet by or to NPM.
Credit Card/Payment Information Policy - How We Protect Credit Card Numbers
Published October 2015
NPM may collect credit card information in the course of business on our sites. We strive to protect the confidentiality and security of this information in our possession, custody, or control by (i) limiting access to card numbers, and (ii) maintaining reasonable safeguards to protect against the loss, misuse, or unlawful disclosure of card numbers. No credit card information is stored or logged on any system housed at NPM—this information is passed straight to our payment processor and always communicated over encrypted communication channels.
Donations and gifts to the various churches of ("The Merchant") North Point Ministries (North Point, Buckhead, Browns Bridge, Watermarke, Gwinnett, and Decatur City) are considered to be non-refundable.
