Privacy Policy

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for mcleanpres.org, the website of McLean Presbyterian Church, a 501(c)3 organization located in McLean, VA. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used, and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email, our sign up forms, our classifieds section, or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us, post a classified or other ad that you submit, or to send you relevant e-mail updates through a third-party service provider (MailChimp) based on your consent via our opt-in forms. When you fill out an RSVP or volunteer form, give a financial gift, or otherwise sign up for a ministry opportunity, your data is processed by a secure third-party service provider (Church Community Builder; known as “McLeanPres Connect” to our church community) in order to complete a financial transaction or communicate with you about the event or opportunity that is of interest to you. Church Community Builder’s Privacy Policy is available upon log in, under “Help and Support.” All sensitive financial data is encrypted and is not kept or seen by our church staff; Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards are implemented during financial transactions initiated via our website.

Security

We take significant precautions to protect your information. When you submit information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page. The only time we collect this information is when you make an online donation or register for an event that has a registration fee.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information in order to perform a specific job (e.g. finance staff) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via telephone at 703.821.0800 or mpc@mcleanpres.org
