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.
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.

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.
