  8. Cookies Your browser software includes a feature called “cookies.” We may use “cookies” to enhance your experience with our site. If enabled, cookies may store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church Website, including your page preferences. Cookies tell us nothing about you personally, unless you specifically give us additional information. Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church does not merge or associate our cookie information with any personally identifiable information obtained by us or from third parties. Cookies simply assist us in tracking which of our features you like best and what content you may have viewed during past visits. When you re-visit Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church Website, cookies can enable us to customize our content according to your preferences. We may use cookies to: (i) keep count of your return visits to the Website; (ii) accumulate anonymous, aggregate, statistical information on website usage; (iii) deliver content specific to your interests or past viewing history; and (iv) save your password so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit our sites.

  9. P3P (Platform for Privacy Preference) Conformance Our cookies conform to the emerging P3P privacy standard, developed by the World Wide Web Consortium. P3P provides a simple, automated way for users to control the use of personal information. Browsers like Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 conform to the P3P standard. At its most basic level, P3P is a standardized set of multiple-choice questions, covering all the major aspects of a website’s privacy policy. Taken together, they present a clear snapshot of how a site handles personal information. P3P-enabled browsers can “read” this snapshot automatically and compare it to the consumer’s own set of privacy preferences. P3P places privacy policies where users can find them, in a form users can understand, and, most importantly, enables users to act on what they see.
  10. IP Addresses An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. An Internet Service Provider (“ISP”) typically assigns a random dynamic IP address at the time of your dial-up. For local area network (“LAN”), DSL, or cable modem users, a static IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church may record the IP addresses of visitors to its Website. While an IP address may reveal your ISP or geographic area, we cannot determine your identity solely based upon your IP address. Other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages, but these IP addresses are never associated with Internet users.
  11. Web Beacons The Website may contain web beacons, which are electronic images (sometimes called “single-pixel gifs”) that allow us to count page views, or to access cookies. We may also include web beacons in HTML-formatted newsletters containing graphics that we may send to opt-in subscribers, to count the number of newsletters that have been opened and read. Our web beacons do not collect, gather, monitor, or share any personal information about our website visitors. They are used only to compile our anonymous, aggregate statistics about website usage.
  12. Computer Profiles. Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church may also collect and accumulate other anonymous data that helps us understand and analyze the Internet experience of our visitors. For example, we may accumulate visitor data relating to referring domain names, the type of browsers used, operating system software, screen resolutions, color capabilities, browser plug-ins, language settings, cookie preferences, search engine keywords and JavaScript enablement. None of this information is personally identifiable and we only share this information in the aggregate, reflecting overall website or Internet usage trends, as outlined in this Privacy Policy.
  13. Chat Rooms and Forums. Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church Website may in the future include chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups. If so, Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church as a passive conduit will not be liable for any of the transmitted information. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information via these public venues, which you do at your own risk. If you do so, you may receive unsolicited emails or “spam.” Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church cannot safeguard the privacy of personally identifiable information that is disclosed and can be viewed or accessed online in this manner.
  14. Security. Some pages of Porter Apostolic Pentecostal Church Website use security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of information that is transmitted through the Website.

To view this certificate, click on the image of the closed lock or the solid key on the bottom bar of your browser window. We also maintain our servers in locked facilities with secure access. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
