Privacy Policy

Updated: 3/14/2023

Your privacy is important to us—and we know it’s important to you, too. Both the Website and Application are owned and operated by Gold Creek Community Church, and we hope this Privacy Policy will help you understand how we collect, use, and protect the information you give us through these programs.

Your Information & How We Use It

Information You Provide

When you use the Website or Application, you may be asked to provide personal information. This information may include your name, email address, and account password. We want you to know that Gold Creek Community Church will not sell, rent, or disclose your personally identifiable information to third-party organizations without getting your prior explicit permission.

Gold Creek Community Church provides the opportunity to give and register for events through the Website and Application through the use of third-party services. We also use third-party services to process credit and debit cards. We do not store full card numbers or verification numbers on our servers at any time.

IP Address, Location Data and Device Identifiers

When accessing the Website or Application, we collect certain non-personally identifiable information including your Internet Protocol (‘IP’) address, location data, and/or device identifier. Gold Creek Community Church uses this information to provide a unique experience for you, including but not limited to, helping a user find and connect with nearby Gold Creek Community Church locations. We also collect this information to determine the number of unique devices using our service or parts of our service to track total usage, analyze data, and communicate with you more effectively. This information can include, but is not limited to: the device operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, battery and signal strength, device identifiers, name of your mobile or internet service provider, browser type, language and time zone, mobile phone number, and IP address. This information may be used to provide you with a better experience and improve the quality of our service.

Website Cookies

When you use the Website, we may send one or more cookies to your computer. A cookie is a tiny text file containing a string of characters that is stored in your computer that correctly identifies your browser. When you accept cookies from us, it allows you to keep your user preferences from session to session on your device. For most browsers, cookies are accepted automatically—but there are settings available to refuse all cookies or have your device alert you when you’re sent a cookie. Having cookies disabled means some of the features of the Website might not work properly for you.

User Communication

When communicating using the Website or Application, to submit personal information or requests, this information will be sent to the group administrator or one of their members. Gold Creek Community Church may retain information sent in email or otherwise in order to process the user’s inquiries and reply to requests while improving our services.

Third Party Sites

This Privacy Policy applies to Gold Creek Community Church’s Website and Application, which is operated by Gold Creek Community Church. We cannot take responsibility for or regulate other sites that are linked within our services, and therefore want it to be known that these third-party sites may place their own cookies or files on your computer as well as collect data and solicit personal information from you. We advise you to familiarize yourself with the Privacy Policy of these specific sites if you choose to use them.

How We Use Your Information

When you use our Website or Application, we may ask you to provide personal information to us so we can support you in participation, requests, preferences, and providing information. As the user, you have the right to opt out of electronically delivered communication and to decline submitting any personal information. If you choose to opt out, know that we may not have the ability to provide all of our services to you. Visitors have the option to engage in activities without providing information.

How We Protect Your Information

Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, Gold Creek Community Church does not sell, rent, or share your personal information with other institutions without your explicit consent. Gold Creek Community Church may share your personal information only if we believe that access to it, use, preservation, or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to:

  • Satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request
  • Enforce applicable Terms of Use, which includes the investigation of potential violations
  • Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues
  • Protect against imminent harm to the rights, property, or safety of us and our users or the public as required or permitted by law.

In order to protect your information, Gold Creek Community Church reserves the right to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data, which includes internal reviews of our data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. We restrict access to personal information to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information to operate, develop, or improve our services unless we receive explicit permission from you. Individuals are bound by confidentiality agreements and could be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Data Integrity

We want to make sure your personal information and all the personal information that we process is accurate, complete, and current. By reviewing our data collection, storage, and processing practices, we ensure that we only collect, store, and process necessary information for our services. We depend on the user to update or correct their personal information when they can to ensure that all of our data is up-to-date.

Accessing and Updating Personal Information

When updating your personal information or requesting the change or deletion of previous information, we ask that users identify themselves and the information they wish to be accessed, corrected, or removed. Gold Creek Community Church reserves the right to decline this request if the request is unreasonable, systematic, requires disproportionate technical effort, jeopardizes the privacy of others, is impractical, or is not required for accuracy. To correct or remove such data will vary depending on the request. To make requests or request that your account be deleted, contact us.

Your Identity and Your Content

Gold Creek Community Church holds the right to disclose information about the user and his/her identity if we determine necessary—such as situations including but not limited to a complaint or investigation involving use of the App, or to identify, contact, or bring legal action against a person causing harm or interference. We may disclose this information and any information we deem necessary to comply with laws, regulations, legal processes, and governmental requests.

The user acknowledges, consents, and agrees that Gold Creek Community Church may access, preserve, and disclose account information and content if required to do so by law or in regards to a belief that access, preservation, or disclosure is necessary in order to:

  • Adhere to legal process
  • Enforce these Terms
  • Respond to any claims that content violates the right of third parties
  • Respond to user requests for customer service
  • Protect the rights, property, or personal safety of our users, the public, and Gold Creek Community Church

It should be understood that technical processing and transmission of the App, which includes content created by the user, may be transmitted over various networks, and changes to benefit technical requirements for networks and devices.


Periodically, Gold Creek Community Church reviews our compliance with this Privacy Policy. When formal written complaints are received regarding privacy issues, it is our policy to contact the complaining user regarding his/her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Gold Creek Community Church and an individual.
