What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:
Our registration forms request contact information that may include name, email address, postal address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers. Any gifts given to ECSW through our website are handled entirely through Paypal’s secure online service. ECSW does not receive from Paypal nor is ECSW privy to any of your personal financial information. We receive notice of your gift for purposes of receipting and saying thanks, but the transactional details of your financial gift remain secure with Paypal, not ECSW.
Internet Protocol Address:
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Use of "Cookies":
All information provided to ECSW is stored in separate location from our website and is not accessible from our website. Your data is only accessible by certain qualified employees of ECSW for purposes of responding to your stated interests, questions, donations and comments. Your personal information will never be sold or provided to another organization for any reason unrelated to ECSW, such as to solicit your business or financial support. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
Other Websites and the ESDA Network:
Our Site contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which ECSW has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.
Our site also contains contact information for individuals who have told us they offer spiritual direction services from a trained, evangelical perspective, have signed off on our Doctrinal Statement and Code of Ethics, and have stated that they have been professionally trained through a recognized institution, certification, or other professional training program—the Evangelical Spiritual Directors Association (or ESDA) network. This information is supplied solely by the individuals themselves in the ESDA network and has not been verified by ECSW, nor do we provide oversight of any of individuals listed in the network.
Your use of the ESDA network implies that you are accepting responsibility for your decision to use it to identify and engage the services of a spiritual director. Your relationship should be made directly with the service provider. Further, you understand that ECSW is in no way responsible for the acts, omissions, or services (professional or volunteer) provided by any of the spiritual directors listed in the ESDA network, or for any other actions taken based on the information furnished by ECSW. You also understand and agree to use any contact information supplied on our website solely for the purposes of finding a spiritual director, and not for purposes of solicitation, replication, distribution or online display without the prior written approval of the Executive Director of ECSW.
