1. Acknowledgment and Acceptance of Terms

Pastoral Leadership Institute, a C-Corp operating as a 501C3 non-profit organization (“PLI”) operates plileadership.org. It is PLI’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website, and use of that information to operate offline. By accessing Plileadership.org you acknowledge and fully understand our Privacy Statement and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Website Privacy Policy Statement.

2. Website Visitors

Like most website operators, PLI collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. PLI’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PLI’s visitors use its website. From time to time, PLI may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. PLI also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. PLI only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left. PLI uses your data to maintain records of donations, participation, send acknowledgements, mail year-end tax statements to you, send newsletters, notices and direct mail pieces, and for internal marketing purposes. We normally add you to our mailing list, unless you request otherwise. A third-party mailing and/or data service, if employed, is contractually obligated to treat the lists with confidentiality and is prohibited from transferring them elsewhere.

3. Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to PLI’s website choose to interact with PLI in ways that require PLI to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PLI gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with PLI are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information, such as personal name, address, phone number, email address, as well as organization or affiliate name, address and phone number, and email address, required to process those transactions. In each case, PLI collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with PLI. PLI does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

4. Aggregated Statistics

PLI may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, PLI may monitor the most popular posts on plileadership.org and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PLI does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

5. Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

PLI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on PLI’s behalf or to provide services available at or through PLI’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. PLI will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, PLI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PLI believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PLI, third parties or the public at large. PLI takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

7. Business Transfers

If PLI, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that PLI goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
