Use of Information
Information collected by Tyndale is used for four main purposes. First, we collect information to improve the Website by determining which of our areas, features and forums are most popular. Second, we collect information to personalize the experience of the users of the Website. For example, users of some of the features of the Website are required to create a User Account, UserID and password in order to access those features. Third, we collect information to enable our users to participate in features, services, programs and/or other activities from time to time. Finally, we collect information (such as credit card information) to enable our users to purchase our products directly through the Website.
In order to participate in many features, services and/or programs of the Website, we may require that you provide us with certain specific information, such as your full name, company information, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, gender, personal interests and/or other information specific to you. If you want to purchase products directly through the Website, we will also require that you provide us with credit card information, your customer number (if you have one) and related information. You can choose whether or not to provide us with this information, but if you choose not to provide any required information, your experience on the Website may be diminished and some features may not be available or may not work as intended. If you choose not to provide the required credit card information, you may not be able to purchase products through the Website.
Credit Card Information
The online store on the Website is designed to protect the privacy of your credit card information, name, address, e-mail and any other information you provide us. Tyndale is committed to data security with respect to information collected on our site. We offer the industry standard security measures available by utilizing a Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) connection. If at any time you would like to make a purchase, but do not want to provide your credit card information online, you may contact a sales representative over the telephone. Simply call 1.800.356.3433. It is our practice to contact customers if a problem should arise with your purchase or if we need to send you a normal business communication regarding your purchase.
How Information is Collected
IP Address. Every computer connected to the internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol”, or IP, address. When a user requests a web page from the Website, our web servers automatically recognize that user’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about the user other than the IP address from which the user has accessed the Website. We may use this information to examine our traffic in the aggregate, but do not collect and evaluate this information for individuals. Our web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of users.
User Account, Password and Security
For certain features available through the Website, we may require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection and/or your use of a UserID and password after setting up a User Account. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your UserID, password, User Account information and credit card information by utilizing an SSL connection. Accordingly, your UserID, password, User Account information and credit card information are encrypted using an SSL connection and are not expected to be read in an intelligible form as they travel to the Website. You, however, are ultimately responsible for protecting your UserID, password, User Account information and credit card information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to: (a) immediately notify Tyndale of any unauthorized use of your UserID, password and/or User Account, and/or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your User Account at the end of each session. While we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that information transmitted through the internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error.
Tyndale is dedicated to protecting your privacy and work hard to ensure our website, and services are both safe and secure for our visitors, clients, and subscribers.
Protection of Information
Any information communicated to Tyndale for text messaging and or storage will remain in the ownership of the user, which will store securely in accordance with our security policy and the law. Tyndale will take the necessary steps to secure your personal information with safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Tyndale will, at no time, rent or redistribute this information without your consent, except where legally required to do so.
Subscribing and Unsubscribing
It is policy, that just as a user must opt in to a text marketing list, they have the right to opt out of a particular text marketing list as well. When a user opts out of a text marketing list, they will no longer receive any texts unless they, themselves, re-subscribe.
