Information That We Collect, and How We Use It
Portsmouth Abbey collects information from our users when they contact us, make a prayer request, sign up for newsletters, sign up for blog notification, and register for conferences and other Portsmouth Abbey-sponsored events. Some of Portsmouth Abbey’s registration, account setup and other forms may ask users to give us contact information, unique personal identifiers, areas of interest and/or demographic information. We sometimes aggregate demographic information, and the types of systems and browsers of users for internal purposes, so that we may better understand the user population of our Site, identify areas of interest, and determine whether the Site is designed to work with the computer settings of a majority of our visitors. Portsmouth Abbey also may conduct user surveys on the Web, which usually are intended to provide Portsmouth Abbey with information on a number of areas, such as user identity, user viewing habits, whether or not users found what they were searching for, whether the Site content is relevant to user needs, and the like. Portsmouth Abbey uses the information gathered from such surveys to improve our web content, navigation, and overall visitor experience.
Any personal information that you provide, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc., allows Portsmouth Abbey to inform you of updates about Portsmouth Abbey and to notify you about other services offered by Portsmouth Abbey that may be of interest to you. We will not sell, share, or rent or otherwise make available any of that information to other parties, except that we may disclose the information to third parties who perform services on our behalf and have a need to access the information in connection with those services. In addition, Portsmouth Abbey may disclose contact information for you in response to inquiries by bona-fide rights owners in connection with allegations of infringement of copyright or other proprietary rights arising from information that you have posted on the Site or otherwise provided to Portsmouth Abbey. Individuals that subscribe to e-mail newsletters are given the opportunity to opt-out of promotions, news, and information at the time of sign up. Portsmouth Abbey also provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the points where we request information.
We may collect the e-mail addresses at the point of subscription, of users who wish to receive e-mail notification of Portsmouth Abbey information and of those who send us e-mail messages or express interest regarding our services, or register for conferences and other Portsmouth Abbey-sponsored events. We will not, however, share any e-mail addresses with any third party or send unsolicited e-mail to any of the addresses we collect, except in very limited circumstances as set forth in this policy.
Portsmouth Abbey has in place technological and operational security processes designed to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. Only authorized employees and contractors will have access to any data provided by you, and that access is limited by need. Each employee or contractor having access to any personally-identifiable information is obligated to maintain its confidentiality. Although we take steps that are generally accepted as industry standard to protect your personally-identifiable information, Portsmouth Abbey cannot guarantee that your personally-identifiable information will not become accessible to unauthorized persons.
