Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Perth North Church public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Perth North Church does not read any of your private online communications.

Perth North Church encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from Perth North Church so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information.

Use of Cookies

The Perth North Church Web site use "cookies" to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Perth North Church pages, or register with Perth North Church site or services, a cookie helps Perth North Church to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Perth North Church Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Perth North Church features that you customised.

 

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Perth North Church services or Web sites you visit.

 

Security of your Personal Information

Perth North Church secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Perth North Church secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

 

Changes to this Statement

Perth North Church will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect organisation and customer feedback. Perth North Church encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Perth North Church is protecting your information.
