PRIVACY STATEMENT:
Jest Kidding has created this privacy/use statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. We want to assure you that the personal information you provide us remains confidential at all times. At the same time, we want to provide you with the most useful and enjoyable Web experience possible. You can use many features of our site anonymously; however, you are required to provide personal information to make donations or requests for information or materials to be sent to you.

Jest Kidding is the sole owner of any information collected on our web site. We will never willfully sell, rent, or exchange our mailing lists or personally identifiable information about you to any third party. The only exception would be to comply with the law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Jest Kidding, our users, or others.

The personal information you provide us with (name, address, phone number, credit card information etc) is retained in our records. All personal information is stored in a secure location and is accessible only by authorized staff members.

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site.

HOW WE COLLECT AND USE PERSONAL INFORMATION:
By using our Web site, you give Jest Kidding permission to collect aggregate information. As with most other Internet sites, our web site’s servers automatically record the IP address and type of browser used by each visitor to this site. This IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, aol.com), but not your e-mail address.

We collect information on what pages are accessed and what paths are followed on our website, but we do not attempt to identify or monitor your individual visit(s). The information we collect is used to track trends, activity, correct errors and to improve the content and design of our website for all who use it. Demographic information about what countries and states our visitors come from is also provided. None of this log file information is linked to the personally identifiable information that you may submit to our site. In other words, all information in this log file is anonymous information.

Our web host, Gospel Communications Network, does have access to the same general information we monitor such as individual page hits, popular paths through our site, page views by time period or day of the week, etc. This information may be provided to independent ratings services such as Nielsen Net Ratings, Inc. But none of this information identifies individual visitors to our website.

When you communicate with us via e-mail or fill out an interactive form on our website, you give us permission to collect the information you provide, such as your name, e-mail address, survey responses or customer service requests. If you respond to an offer, we must ask for your postal address so we can deliver the requested materials. This information is used to respond to your specific request, to improve the content and design of our website, to send you announcements about our ministry or any new products. You will be removed from any list by simply contacting us with your request.

Information you provide in the course of participating in a special promotion or contest, may be used by us for promotional purposes. We will always specify what these additional uses may be before you submit your information on a promotion or contest web page so that you can make an informed choice about your participation.

When you order on our website Pay Pal will also collect transactional data such as account numbers, billing and shipping addresses and telephone numbers. This information is used only to process and deliver your order, to contact you if we have a question about your order or payment, and/or to establish internal purchasing accounts for repeat orders. We encourage you to review Pay Pal’s privacy policies.

ACCESS:
Upon request we will provide you with access to all information that we maintain about you. You can request to review or correct this information via phone, mail or e-mail.

We do employ widely recommended security provisions, such as firewalls, logins/passwords and virus detection software to prevent security breaches.

Our web store has several additional protections. It takes advantage of “secure socket layers” web server technology provided by our host, Gospel Communications Network.

Additionally, we do not allow billing/shipping address changes to be made online.
If a change is requested, we will verify it by contacting you via phone or regular mail before proceeding. Credit card information that you submit when buying items in our web store will be transmitted ONLY over secure channels, never using e-mail.
