It gives users peace of mind. Online privacy policies can help users understand why you collect and use their information and how you keep it secure. Let users know what information you collect, how it will be used, and who will be able to access it.
When creating your policy, be sure to address the following questions:
How do you collect information? Is information collected automatically when users visit the site, or do they fill out a form with their information? Do you maintain information received in other ways, such as insurance information provided by a member on a paper version of an activity participation agreement? Instead of developing multiple privacy policies addressing various operational activities, many organizations decide to adopt one comprehensive policy that encompasses all of their operations.
Why do you collect information? Why does your ministry collect personal information from users? Your answer may be as simple as “to further the purpose of the ministry by facilitating communication between the user and others who attend.” If you are collecting financial information, your policy should be more specific about how this information will be used.
How do you secure information? Do you work with networking and website programming professionals to ensure that the ministry’s website uses industry-standard security protocols, firewalls, and encryption programs? Ensuring that these safeguards are in place is important, especially if your ministry handles financial information.
A cookie is a small piece of data a website stores on a user's computer that contains information about the user’s activity on the website. Cookies generally help websites run more efficiently by performing tasks such as remembering the user’s log-in information.
