Privacy Policy

Collection

We may collect and store the following personal information:

  • email address, physical contact information, and (depending on the service used) sometimes financial information, such as credit card numbers;
  • transactional information based on your activities on the sites;
  • shipping, billing and other information you provide to purchase or ship an item;
  • dispute resolution, correspondence through our sites, and correspondence sent to us;
  • other information from your interaction with our sites, services, content and advertising, including computer and connection information, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the sites, ad data, IP address and standard web log information;
  • other supplemental information from third parties (for example, if you incur a debt to Bethany International, we will generally conduct a credit check by obtaining additional information about you from a credit bureau, as permitted by law).

Marketing

We don't sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes. We may combine your information with information we collect from other companies and use it to improve and personalize our services, content and advertising.

Use

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. You agree that we may use your personal information to:

  • provide the services and customer support you request;
  • resolve disputes, collect payments, and troubleshoot problems;
  • prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities;
  • customize, measure and improve our services, content and advertising;
  • tell you about our services and those of our corporate family, targeted marketing, service updates, and promotional offers; and
  • compare information for accuracy, and verify it with third parties.

Our Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

We may also share your personal information with:

  • Members of the Bethany International corporate family—like Bethany International Ministries, STEM or Go100—to provide joint content and services (like registration, transactions and customer support), to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and violations of our policies, and to guide decisions about their products, services and communications. Members of our corporate family may use this information to send you marketing communications.
  • Service providers under contract who help with our business operations (such as fraud investigations, bill collection, etc).
  • Law enforcement or other governmental officials, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity. In such events, we will disclose information relevant to the investigation, such as name, city, state, zip code, telephone number, email address, IP address, fraud complaints, and purchase history.
  • Other business entities, should we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity. (Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this privacy policy with respect to your personal information. If your personal information will be used contrary to this policy, you will receive prior notice.)

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from violators, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.

Protection of Information

The Bethany College of Missions bookstore is hosted by Populi. The following statement has been taken from their stated Privacy Policy: Populi actively maintains security measures to protect your information and data from loss, destruction, misuse, unauthorized access, and disclosure. These measures help ensure the safety, security, and authorized access of your data. However, internet security is an ever-evolving and largely defensive enterprise, and so we therefore cannot guarantee the complete security of any Internet data transmissions or information storage technology.
