We collect personal data from you when you provide it to us both offline and online. You do not need to provide personal information to us to use the The River site. You have choices about what additional information you provide to us via forms, which may include your zip code, the names of your family members, gender, address, phone number, email address, and your martial status, all of which will be stored in our database. Certain information may be required based on your specific request, we will notify you of this at the time of such a request. We also collect information about you when you send, receive, or engage in communications with us, including when you submit personal information or requests by emailing email@example.com. We retain those communications to process your inquiries, respond to your requests, and improve our sites and our services.
If you choose to provide a voluntary donation through The River site, then and only then will you be prompted and required to provide credit card, bank account, and other payment information necessary to process the transaction. We will collect the designation for your donation, if you provide one, and personal information such as your name, address, phone number and/or email address to ensure that your donation is used for the purpose you request and to provide you with a “Annual Giving Statement” that itemizes your donation(s) for tax purposes or your personal use. This information (with the exception of your financial information) is stored securely by the Flockbase system. This system allows us to provide access to your contribution records and allows you to make donations online. This system is used by churches throughout the country and has been found to be fully reliable.
Your data is stored on AWS servers on the my.flockbase.com domain and is subject to the privacy policies found here: https://my.flockbase.com/privacy.
We do not currently process refunds for online donations.
Please help us keep your data safe by protecting your login information. Access to sensitive personal and financial information can be gained by letting someone else use your account or by leaving the information for someone else to see.

Disclosure on Your Behalf
Disclosure by You
If and when you share information through our site, that information is viewable by you and by anyone else you choose to share it with. If you give access to your account to other applications and services, based on your approval, those services would then have access to your shared information.

Legal Process and Subpoena
It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process. We may dispute third party demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague, or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand. We may also need to disclose your information if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (ii) enforce our agreements with you; (iii) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; (iv) protect the security or integrity of our sites; or (v) exercise or protect the rights and safety of The River, our users, personnel, you, or others.

When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, email address, and what personally identifiable information you request to be accessed, corrected, or removed. We may decline to process requests if we cannot verify the requestor's identity, if we believe the request will jeopardize the privacy of others, if we believe the request would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect, or for a similar legitimate purpose. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under applicable law. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to a verifiable request concerning your personal information unless it is excessive, unduly burdensome, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
If you ask that we modify or delete some or all of your personal information, we will retain your personal data if reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests and obligations concerning financial records and tax returns), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our agreements or fulfill any others requests from you (for example, to opt-out of further messages or for a copy of your data).

We have no control of information you have shared with others through one of our sites after you close your account or asked to delete information or attempted to delete your account yourself. Your information and content you have shared may continue to be displayed in the services of others (for example, search engine results) until they refresh their cache.
