Developing new services
IGM processes personal information on our servers in the United States of America and abroad. In some
cases, we may process personal information on a server outside your own country. In some cases, we
may process personal information on behalf of and according to instructions of a third party, such as one
of our partners.
Choices for personal information – When you sign up for a particular service that requires registration,
we may ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than the
purpose for which it was collected, we will ask for your consent prior to such use.
If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Policy
and/or in specific service notices, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal
information for those other purposes. You may decline to submit personal information to any of our
services, in which case IGM may not be able to provide certain services to you.
Information sharing – IGM only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside
of IGM in the following limited circumstances:
We have your consent. We require opt-in consent for sharing any sensitive personal information.
We provide such information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, or other trusted businesses
or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf. We require that
these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with
this Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
We have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of such information is
reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable
governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential
violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues of International Gospel Missions
WEB SITE TERMS & CONDITIONS
(d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property, or safety of IGM, its users, or the public
as required or permitted by law.
We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information. For
example, the number of users who searched for a particular term or how many users clicked on a
particular advertisement. Such information does not identify you individually.
Information security – We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to
or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. These include 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 IGM employees, contractors, and agents who need to know
the information in order to operate, develop, or improve our services. These individuals are bound by
confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution,
if they fail to meet these obligations.
Data integrity – IGM processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and
in accordance with this Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We review our data
collection, storage, and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store, and process the
personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure
that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users
to update and correct their personal information whenever necessary.
Accessing and updating personal information – When you use IGM services, we make good faith
efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is
inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for
legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information
requested to be accessed, corrected, or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to
process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort,
jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning
information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where
we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so
would require a disproportionate effort. Some of our services have different procedures to access,
correct, or delete users’ personal information.
Enforcement – IGM regularly reviews its compliance with this Policy. Please feel free to direct any
questions or concerns regarding this Policy of IGM’s treatment of personal information by contacting us
through this web site or by writing us at the address previously identified. When we receive formal written
complaints at this address, it is our policy to contact the complaining user regarding their 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 IGM and
