Data and privacy

The Jesus Network collects personal information via the Internet through several avenues: MailChimp email sign up form, Acuity Scheduling calendar and events sign-up, CanadaHelps online donation forms, and Google Analytics cookies. MailChimp, Acuity Scheduling (which is owned by Squarespace), CanadaHelps, and Google Analytics each have their own privacy policies in addition to our own practices.

The Jesus Network also collects personal information via paper donation form.

The Jesus Network website also has an embedded Facebook feed. The Jesus Network does not collect visitor information via the Facebook feed, however the Facebook plugin does interact with its own cookies. Facebook has its own data policy.

How your data will be used

Data submitted via MailChimp

Your email address will be used to send you email newsletters, typically on a monthly basis, with updates from the Jesus Network's ministry activity, prayer requests, volunteer opportunities, and giving opportunities.

Your name, address, and home church will be cross-referenced against our existing, locally hosted (i.e. offline) donor database in order to verify whether you are already in the database. If you are, your email address will be added or updated to your existing information in the donor database. If you are not in the donor database, your information will not be added to the donor database. If, after signing up for emails, you become a donor, your email address may be added to your donor profile at that later time.

Jesus Network does not send tax receipts by email.

Data submitted via AcuityScheduling

Your name, and names of other registrants if provided by you, will be used for event planning purposes, i.e. creating a count of expected participants for an event. Other information, such as whether you've volunteered with us before, is used to help us determine the overall group's familarity with our ministry.

Your Name, email address, and other information provided will be cross-referenced against our existing, locally hosted (i.e. offline) donor database in order to verify whether you are already in the database. If you are, your information will be added or updated to your existing information in the donor database. If an event has a registration fee, that fee will be recorded to our donor database. If you do not have a record in our donor database and there is no registration fee, your information will not be added to the database.
