This privacy policy explains the privacy practices of the Irvine United Congregational Church (“IUCC”) and how the IUCC treats your information.

This policy only applies to information we collect from visitors to our website, iucc.org. This policy does not apply to information collected offline or through any other means, or from any third party. 

IUCC collects the personal information that you make available to IUCC, including first and last name, email address, mobile phone number, Facebook URL, Twitter URL, profile headline, user name, passwords, survey responses, photos, and cookie data. We also collect some information automatically about your computer hardware and software, which can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and dates, referring website addresses, cookies, flash cookies, web beacons, and log file information. The information that we automatically collect does not by itself identify a specific individual and is statistical data typically aggregated with other data to help us improve our website. IUCC collects your information when you provide consent; for purposes that are required by law; and for the purposes of responding to requests by the government, a court of law, or law enforcement authorities conducting an investigation.

IUCC uses your information to present our website and its contents to you; to communicate with you via newsletters to which you subscribe; to fulfill contracts, in particular, facilitating and processing transactions; and where it is necessary to fulfill IUCC’s legitimate interests, which include operating our website; providing information and services described on our website; verifying your identity; determining how to improve our website; and responding to your questions and comments.

IUCC retains your personal information for as long as necessary to provide the services to you and to comply with legal obligations. If you no longer want IUCC to use your personal information you can request that IUCC delete your personal information by contacting Steve Swope at iucc@ucc.org; however, IUCC will retain information as is necessary for IUCC’s legitimate business interests. 

IUCC reserves the right to change our website and this privacy policy, at our discretion. When any change is made, a revised version will be posted here and will be effective as of the revised date.

Some functions on our website are managed by third parties, which have their own data privacy policies. These functions include, but may not be limited to, donations and comment functions.
