St. David's Episcopal Church Privacy Policy

Updated: January 30, 2023

St. David’s Episcopal Church, Inc. (“St. David’s”) respects your privacy and preferences concerning the treatment of personal information that we may collect from your association with us and your use of our website.  This Privacy Policy applies to the website (the “Website”).


By using the Website, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Website.


We’ve developed our privacy policy from industry practices, and local, national, and international laws and requirements. All privacy practices and methods described in this policy apply only insofar as permitted by applicable laws and requirements. 


Information Collected


We collect personal information from you when you: (1) submit or schedule an online gift or pledge; (2) request products, services, or use of our campus; (3) contact us through the Website, via email, or other means; (4) submit information related to a ministry or ministry service in which you participate, volunteer, or seek information about; or (5) otherwise provide us with your personal information.


Personal information we collect may include, without limitation: your name; age; email address; phone number; mailing address; photograph; names of your children, spouse, or other family members; username; password; payment information; and church/ministry affiliation, provided you submit such information.  In some instances, we may request additional information from you to verify your identity or to create and maintain a personal account for you.  A personal account may be required to enable you to access certain services or non-public areas of the Website.


We may also collect certain non-personal information from you when you visit the Website, including but not limited to your browser type, mobile device type, operating system, IP address, geographic location, the domain name or Internet service provider from which you accessed the Website, and other information that cannot be used to specifically identify you.  We may also collect information regarding your browsing behavior, such as the date and time you visit the Website, the areas or pages of the Site that you visit, the amount of time you spend viewing the Website, or the number of times you return to the Website.


How We Use Your Information


The information you provide will be used to support your relationship with St. David’s, fulfill requests submitted by you through the Website, and facilitate communication between us.  By your acceptance of this Privacy Policy, you authorize us to process your requests and you agree to be contacted by us in response to your requests, as well as receive other announcements and notifications through the communications channels you identify to us.  If you do not want to receive announcements or notifications from us, please contact us at


Any non-personal information collected by us will only be used in an aggregated (i.e., not personally identifiable) fashion.  For example, we may use non-personal information: to review and analyze Website usage and operations; to assess the performance of the Website, our ministry, or our products and services; to protect and secure the Website and our ministry; or to provide you with targeted offers and advertising on the Website.


The foregoing notwithstanding, we may be required to disclose your information in connection with law enforcement, fraud prevention, regulation, and other legal action or if St. David’s reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to protect St. David’s, its staff, its members, or the public.


Third Party Tools and Services


From time to time, St. David’s may use third party tools, such as Google Analytics, to generate reports regarding demographics and interest in the Website.  In some instances, such as payment processing, personal information you provide is transmitted to third parties in order to fulfill your requests.  The use of any such information by a third party will be governed by that third party’s privacy policy and/or terms of service.




A cookie is a small file stored on a user’s computer or mobile device containing information about that user.  St. David’s uses cookies on its website to improve your user experience and to collect the non-personal information described above.  A user that does not allow cookies will still be able to use some portions of the Website, but may not be able to use certain features.


Changing or Updating Your Information


Any personal information obtained by St. David’s from you belongs to you.  If you wish to remove, change, or update any of your personal information, you may do so by accessing your St. David’s account using the username and password established during your initial login.  All user passwords will be stored in an encrypted format.  If you have any trouble accessing, removing, correcting, or modifying your personal information, or if you wish to instruct us not to disclose personal information to any third party other than those necessary to complete a request you initiate on the Website, please send an email with your request to


Note that we may need to retain certain records for legal or internal business reasons and that some of your information may remain on backup systems, in compliance with applicable law.


Data Security and Responsibility


St. David’s will take reasonable precautions to protect your information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration.  Such precautions may include, but are not limited to periodic backing up of all information stored at our servers, checks to identify the presence of any software viruses, and review of our account security measures.  Our vendors, contractors, employees, or partners who have access to your information are required to keep the information confidential and are not permitted to use this information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for St. David’s.


The privacy of communications over the Internet cannot be guaranteed, because the Internet is not a secure medium.  You agree that St. David’s is not responsible for any harm, loss, or damage you may incur by the sending of personal information over the Internet by or to St. David’s.


Links to Other Websites


As a convenience to you, the Website may contain links to websites controlled by third parties other than St. David’s.  We are not responsible for, and do not endorse, the privacy practices or content of these third party websites.  We recommend that you read the privacy policies of each such website you visit.


Changes to the Privacy Policy


We may update this policy from time to time.  When we post changes to this policy, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy.  You are responsible for reviewing this Privacy Policy regularly.  All changes are effective immediately upon posting.  Your continued use of the Website indicates your agreement to the terms of this Privacy Policy.  Any use of your information that we gather or that is in our possession is subject to the Privacy Policy as in effect at the time of use.
