Collecting and Using Personal Information

Wel­come to Wycliffe.​net. We ap­pre­ci­ate your in­ter­est in us. This site is “owned” by a num­ber of or­ga­ni­za­tions, but the Wycliffe Global Al­liance has the le­gal re­spon­si­bil­ity for the site.

When you browse this site or con­tact us via this site, we will not col­lect per­sonal in­for­ma­tion about you un­less you pro­vide that in­for­ma­tion vol­un­tar­ily. If you sup­ply your postal or email ad­dress, you will re­ceive only the in­for­ma­tion for which you pro­vided the address.

Where re­quired, per­sonal in­for­ma­tion may be for­warded to the site’s part­ner or­ga­ni­za­tions in or­der to pro­vide a re­sponse to your re­quest or comments.

If you pro­vide non-pub­lic per­sonal in­for­ma­tion (such as a name, ad­dress, email ad­dress or tele­phone num­ber) via this site, Wycliffe Global Al­liance will only use such in­for­ma­tion for the pur­pose stated on the page where it is collected.

Wycliffe Global Al­liance does not send un­so­licited or “spam” email and does not sell, rent, or trade its email lists to third parties.

In all cases, we will dis­close in­for­ma­tion con­sis­tent with ap­plic­a­ble laws and reg­u­la­tions if required.

Your Email

We wel­come your com­ments or ques­tions about this web­site and have pro­vided email boxes for that purpose.

Please re­mem­ber that all email has the pos­si­bil­ity of be­ing in­ter­cepted by other In­ter­net users, with­out your knowl­edge and per­mis­sion. For that rea­son, to pro­tect your pri­vacy, please do not use email to com­mu­ni­cate in­for­ma­tion to us that you con­sider confidential.

Ownership and Use of Information on the Site

Ar­ti­cles and data on this site may be down­loaded or copied free of charge and reused or dis­trib­uted as re­quired, pro­vid­ing it is done so in a man­ner that does not dis­par­age or dis­credit Wycliffe or any of the other part­ner or­ga­ni­za­tions on this site. It is gen­er­ally best to quote the source for any ar­ti­cle, data or in­for­ma­tion when tak­ing it from a website.

Please do not down­load and use the Wycliffe Global Al­liance logo, or those of other part­ners, with­out permission.

Ar­ti­cles or in­for­ma­tion pro­vided on our site where Wycliffe Global Al­liance is not the orig­i­nal provider should be rec­og­nized as be­long­ing to other part­ners or sources. Please con­tact the orig­i­nal own­ers/providers if you wish to use the ar­ti­cles or in­for­ma­tion that do not be­long to Wycliffe.

Al­though Wycliffe Global Al­liance at­tempts to en­sure the in­tegrity and ac­cu­rate­ness of the site, we can­not guar­an­tee ac­cu­racy of the site. It is pos­si­ble that the site could in­clude ty­po­graph­i­cal er­rors, in­ac­cu­ra­cies, or other er­rors and that unau­tho­rized ad­di­tions, dele­tions, and al­ter­ations could be made to the site by third par­ties. In the event that an in­ac­cu­racy oc­curs, please in­form us so that it can be corrected.

Other Information: e.g. “Cookies” and “log files”

You should also be aware that when you visit our web­site, we col­lect cer­tain in­for­ma­tion that does not iden­tify you per­son­ally, but pro­vides us with “us­age data,” such as the num­ber of vis­i­tors we re­ceive or what pages are vis­ited most of­ten. This data helps us to an­a­lyze and im­prove the use­ful­ness of the in­for­ma­tion we pro­vide at these websites.

Like most web­site own­ers, we may use what is known as “cookie” tech­nol­ogy. A “cookie” is an el­e­ment of data that a web­site can send to your browser when you con­nect to that web­site. It is not a com­puter pro­gram and has no abil­ity to read data re­sid­ing on your com­puter or in­struct it to per­form any step or func­tion. By as­sign­ing a unique data el­e­ment to each vis­i­tor, the web­site is able to rec­og­nize re­peat users, track us­age pat­terns and bet­ter serve you when you re­turn to that site. The cookie does not ex­tract other per­sonal in­for­ma­tion about you, such as your name or address.

There are two main kinds of cook­ies: ses­sion cook­ies and per­sis­tent cook­ies. Ses­sion cook­ies are deleted from your com­puter when you close your browser, whereas per­sis­tent cook­ies re­main stored on your com­puter un­til deleted, or un­til they reach their ex­piry date.

Most browsers al­low you to refuse to ac­cept cook­ies. In In­ter­net Ex­plorer, you can refuse all cook­ies by click­ing “Tools”, “In­ter­net Op­tions”, “Pri­vacy”, and se­lect­ing “Block all cook­ies” us­ing the slid­ing se­lec­tor. In Fire­fox, you can ad­just your cook­ies set­tings by click­ing “Tools”, “Op­tions” and “Pri­vacy”. Block­ing cook­ies may have a neg­a­tive im­pact upon the us­abil­ity of some websites.

Log Files: We use IP ad­dresses to an­a­lyze trends, ad­min­is­ter the site, track users’ move­ments and gather broad de­mo­graphic in­for­ma­tion for ag­gre­gate use. IP ad­dresses are not linked to per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able information.

We will share ag­gre­gated de­mo­graphic in­for­ma­tion with our part­ners and af­fil­i­ates from time to time. This is not linked to any per­sonal in­for­ma­tion that can iden­tify any in­di­vid­ual person.


Wycliffe.​net con­tains links to other web­sites. These links are in­cluded to pro­vide you with other rel­e­vant resources.

A link to a doc­u­ment or site other than those in­cluded within Wycliffe.​net do­main does not nec­es­sar­ily im­ply that the Wycliffe Global Alliance

  • endorses the organization(s) or person(s) providing them,
  • agrees with the ideas expressed, or
  • attests to the correctness, factuality, appropriateness, or legality of the contents.

The Wycliffe Global Al­liance is also not re­spon­si­ble for the pri­vacy poli­cies or prac­tices of these websites.

Changes to This Statement

Wycliffe Global Al­liance may change this State­ment from time to time; when up­dates are made, the Pri­vacy Pol­icy ver­sion date (lo­cated at the bot­tom of this Pol­icy) will also be up­dated to re­flect that a re­vi­sion oc­curred. We en­cour­age you to pe­ri­od­i­cally reread this Pol­icy to see if there have been any changes that may af­fect you. This State­ment is not in­tended to and does not cre­ate any con­trac­tual or other le­gal rights in or on be­half of any party.

If you have any ques­tions or con­cerns re­gard­ing our pri­vacy pol­icy, please email [email protected]​wycliffe.​net.
