Personal Information: Collection and Use
Personal Data. This site is open to the public, and any user may purchase items from this site, with some limitations on restricted items. To set up a personal profile to simplify the process when making regular purchases from this site, or to purchase restricted items (intended only for ecclesiastical leaders and members who meet certain criteria), users are required to register first with LDS Account—a website that provides Church membership verification and/or other personal identity verification of users. If you have not yet registered with LDS Account click here to register. When users access this site and make a purchase, they are required to submit certain personal information, including their name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number (some of the above information is automatically provided to this site by LDS Account). Users provide additional shipping information (preferred method of shipment and address) and payment information (credit card information and related data) to conclude a transaction. Payment information is not stored by this site and is collected directly by a third-party processor through its secure link only to facilitate the transaction. Specifically, no credit card information (including credit card numbers, expiration dates, billing, or other validating information) is transmitted, processed, or stored directly by this site. We may request, or users may voluntarily provide, other personal information from time to time for different features on the site, including participation in surveys and other information gathering activities.
All personal information obtained on this site is provided voluntarily by users. To the extent we retain personal profile information for users, they can update their personal information by going to the LDS Account site and editing (where permitted) their personal profile. Some LDS Account information can only be updated by making changes to the users' Church membership record and such changes must be done in users' local Church units. We do not set up personal profiles except using LDS Account provided information.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Third-party Providers. We do not sell your personal information. We may provide personal information of users to Church affiliated entities responsible for fulfillment of the transaction, to third parties for their use in performing internal functions on our behalf or on behalf of the Church affiliated entities (payment processing, maintenance, security, data analysis, hosting, and so forth). These providers are contractually required to abide by industry standards in performing these functions and are forbidden from using your personal information for any purpose other than fulfilling our request for services. We will never directly have access to your credit card or similar financial information through this site, but will be provided information by our payment processor on when payment was made and in what amount.
Legal Requirements. We may disclose users' personal information or other content if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, we may disclose users' personal information and other information where we, in good faith, deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent a violation of our Rights and Use Information, or other agreements; to take precautions against liability; to protect the rights, property, or safety of this site, any individual, or the general public; to maintain and protect the security and integrity of our services or infrastructure; to protect ourselves and our services from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; or to assist government enforcement agencies.
