Collection and Use of Information
The Site relies on articles submitted by ministry teams and leaders to provide information for inclusion on the site and in our newsletters regarding the ministries and activities of Episcopal entities throughout The Episcopal Church (“Contributed Content”) of interest to our local parish. Such entities include dioceses, parishes, schools, and other Episcopal networks and communities. You may provide Contributed Content in accordance with the Terms of Use.

We collect personally identifiable information if, and when, you provide it to us (for example, through the contact form under the “Contact Us” tab of the Site, or through newsletter sign-up, or in connection with submitting any Contributed Content). Personally identifiable information is information that directly identifies you, or your ministry or parish, such as your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

We may include any Contributed Content that you submit and, if we do so, that Contributed Content will then be accessible to any visitor to the Site. We may also use the information we collect from you to contact you, in order to provide information if you have requested it, to confirm information that you submit, inform you that data you submit has been approved, or to confirm that you are not a bot.

Disclosure of Information
Any Contributed Content that you submit and that we include on the site or in our newsletter will be public. In addition, we may use Contributed Content to create promotional materials for the church, or otherwise for The Episcopal Church and Episcopal Relief & Development. Such information may also be shared via social media, organizational websites, in printed materials, or via other media.

Any Contributed Content used on the site may be shared with our affiliates, including Episcopal entities included on the Episcopal Asset Map (dioceses, churches, networks) for their own purposes. These affiliates may also use Contributed Content for their promotional purposes or on their own websites.

If you choose to send an email to Site administrators through the form at the “Contact Us” link, we may use session cookies to ensure you see a message from us that we have received your email. This type of cookie, which stores information that you submit through the form, stores information only for the duration of your visit to the site and will be deleted when you close your browser.

We will not otherwise share other information you provide to us with entities that are not directly related to us, nor will we sell or rent any information you provide us.
