Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via this website, email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us, to confirm your participation in a third party event and/or to display to other members of the Betrothal and Wedding directory. We will not share your information with any other third party. You will control the information you choose to make available to other members of the Betrothal and Wedding directory. Those members may be able to contact you via any information you choose to make available to them.
We may preserve or disclose information about you to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to assert legal rights or defend against legal claims; or to prevent, detect, or investigate illegal activity, fraud, abuse, violations of our terms, or threats to the security of the Services.
We may share non-personal information that is aggregated, anonymous or de-identified so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual. We may disclose such information publicly and to third parties, for example, in public reports about membership numbers or as part of a promotion.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the contact form provided on our website:
⦁ See what data we have about you, if any.
⦁ Change/correct any data we have about you.

In order to use the directory, (when active) a user must first fill out their own profile. During registration a user will be required to give certain information such as name, state, personal testimony, and character reference. This information will be available and displayed securely to other members of the directory. The information shared will not be sold to third parties and your profile can be deactivated when you choose. You may also provide additional information about yourself or contact information to the other directory members, but it is not required.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only moderators who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information.
