Thanks for visiting King's Church International. This policy explains the what, how, and why of the information we collect when you attend a King's Church International event and/or use any of our services. It also explains the specific ways we use and disclose that information. We take your privacy extremely seriously, and we never sell contact details or email addresses.
We’ll start by getting a few definitions out of the way that should help you understand this policy. When we say “we,” “us,” and “KCI,” we’re referring to King's Church International, Registered Charity 1039958. We provide events and digital services collectively known as "Services" that you may participate or opt-in to. When we say “you” or “Member,” we’re referring to the person or entity that’s registered with us to attend an event or use our Services. A “People List” is a list of contact details that one of our Members has connected, or intends to connect with our Events or Services. We may combine information about you with other Members and People Lists to create ”Aggregate Information,” which may include, but isn’t limited to, names, email addresses, family groups, demographic information, and location.
We offer events on our websites http://www.kcionline.org, http://www.g12uk.com, http://destiny.training, http://kingshouseschool.org.uk, and http://kingschurchinternational.eventbrite.com (each a “Website” and together the “Websites”). While providing Services, we may collect Personal Information, which means information about a User.
European Safe Harbor
We only store online data on tools and services that are certified with Safe Harbor, a EU-led international privacy protection agreement.

5. Information We Collect
Cookies and Tracking: When you use our Websites or Services, we may store “cookies,” “tags,” or “scripts,” which are strings of code, on your computer. We and our analytics Service Providers (like Google) use those cookies to collect information about your visit and your use of our Website or Services. You may turn off cookies that have been placed on your computer by following the instructions on your browser.
Web Beacons: When we send emails to Members, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. We do that to measure the performance of our email campaigns and to improve our features for specific segments of Members. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details. We also include Web Beacons in the emails we deliver for you. We use the data from those Web Beacons to create the reports about how your email campaign performed and what actions your Subscribers took. Reports are also available to us when we send email to you, so we may collect and review that information.
Information from Other Sources: We may get more information about you or your Subscribers, like name, age, and use of social media websites, by searching the internet or querying third parties (we’ll refer to that information as Supplemental Information). We use Supplemental Information to develop features like Social Profiles, a tool that helps you learn about your Subscribers and send them more relevant content.
Information from the use of our Mobile Apps: When you use our mobile apps, we may collect information about the type of device and operating system you use. We may ask you if you want to receive push notifications about activity in your account. If you opt in to these notifications and no longer want to receive them, you may turn them off through your operating system. We don’t access or track any location-based information from your mobile device unless you’ve given us permission. We may use mobile analytics software (like Fabric.io) to help us better understand how people use our application. We may collect information about how often you use the application and other performance data. We don’t collect or link that data with any personally identifiable information.

7. Data Collected for and by our Members
As you use our Services, you may import into our system personal information you’ve collected from your small group members or contacts. Where we have no direct relationship with your Subscribers, you’re responsible for making sure you have the appropriate permission for us to collect and process information about those individuals. As part of our Services, we may use and incorporate information you’ve provided or we’ve collected about Subscribers as Aggregate Information. We may share this Aggregate Information, including Subscriber email addresses, with third parties in line with the approved uses in Section 6.
If you’re a Subscriber and no longer want to be contacted by one of our Members, please unsubscribe directly from that Member’s newsletter or contact the Member directly to update or delete your data. If you contact us, we may remove or update your information within a reasonable time and after providing notice to the Member of your request.
We’ll retain personal data we process on behalf of our Members for as long as needed to provide services to our Members or to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our agreements.
8. Public Information and Third Parties
Our Websites may include social media features, like the Facebook Like or Share button. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you’re visiting on our site, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. We also maintain presences on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
Under no condition will we ever sell or transfer your details in part or in full to third parties. If it’s necessary to provide you something you’ve requested, like send you a booklet to your postal address, then we may share your personal information to a Service Provider for that purpose. We’ll tell you we’re working with a Service Provider whenever reasonably possible, and you may request at any time the name of our Service Providers.
9. Your People Lists
Your People Lists are stored on a secure server. We don’t, under any circumstances, sell your People Lists. If someone on your People List complains or contacts us, we might then contact that person. Only authorised employees have access to view People Lists. You may request your People Lists from King's Church International at any time.
We’ll use and disclose the information in your Distribution Lists only for the reasons listed under Use of Your Personal Information. We may derive Aggregate Information from your People List and will use that information as described in Section 7.
10. Notice of Breach of Security
Nobody is safe from hackers. If a security breach causes an unauthorised intrusion into our system that materially affects you or people in your Aggregate Information, then KCI will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.
11. Safeguarding Your Information
All credit card processing is always completed by a third party vendor. They each use security measures to protect your information both during the transaction and after it’s complete. Our vendors are certified as compliant with card association security initiatives, like the Visa Cardholder Information Security and Compliance (CISP), MasterCard® (SDP), and Discovery Information Security and Compliance (DISC). If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you may contact us at email@example.com.
12. Accuracy of Data, Transparency, and Choice
We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, to the extent that you provide us with the information we need to do that. If your data changes (like a new email address), then you’re responsible for notifying us of those changes.
We’ll retain your information for as long as needed to provide you Services. We may also retain and use your information in order to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse.
We’ll give you access to any Personal Information we hold about you within 30 days of any request for that information. Individuals may request this information from us by contacting at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unless it’s prohibited by law, we’ll remove any Personal Information about an individual from our servers at request. There is no charge for an individual to access or update his or her personal information.
