The Information We Collect
AWMSA collects the following types of information—directly from you and indirectly through third-party service providers and advertising partners (collectively, “Partners”).

1. Personal Information
For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, personal information means any information or set of information that identifies or could be used by or on behalf of AWMSA to identify, a natural person. Personal information does not include information regarding corporate entities or information that is encoded, aggregated, or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public personal information.

Examples of different purposes for which we may collect personal information include, but are not limited to, the following:

● The registration process for AWMSA website accounts, events, product orders, newsletters, memberships, and partner sign-ups
● Donations made to AWMSA or its affiliates
● Job applications submitted to AWMSA
● Voluntary submissions to AWMSA requesting information about our products and services, signing up to receive information from us, or sending us an email

2. Non-Personal Information
In addition to personal information, we may collect additional information that does not personally identify you (i.e., “non-personal information”). Non-personal information may be collected as follows:

a. From Your Activity. This is information that we may automatically collect when you visit, access, or use the Platforms, including, but not limited to, your IP address, internet service provider, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, which sections or features of the Platforms you visit, number of links you click while on a Platform, search terms used, operating system, and technical information about your client computing device.

b. From Cookies and JavaScript Code. This is information that we automatically collect using technical methods, including, but not limited to, cookies, JavaScript code, pixel tags, and other locally stored objects. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to enhance your experience with the Platforms and to allow us to collect non-personal information. If you wish to disable the use of cookies, you should take necessary steps within your web browser’s security settings to block all cookies from the Platforms. Please consult your web browser’s documentation for information on how to do this and how to delete persistent cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, the Platforms may not function properly. We use JavaScript code to trigger a sequence of events that includes viewing a first-party cookie (or setting that cookie if it does not already exist) and to help us tailor and optimize your visit to the Platforms.

Note: AWMSA assumes no responsibility for responding to Do Not Track (DNT) web browser signals. Consult external website polices regarding their response to DNT signals.

Web Analytics
AWMSA has entered into agreements with certain partners to deliver relevant, user-targeted, non-intrusive advertising to help promote AWMSA events and services. These partners do not have access to any personal information and only access to non-personal information. They have their own policies that should be reviewed in connection with your use of the Platforms. Partners include, but are not limited to, Google Analytics.

AWMSA uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help a website’s operator analyze how users use the site. The non-personal information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers located around the world. Google will use this information for evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by them. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your web browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Platforms. By using the Platforms, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set forth above.

Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports Platform usage trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you use the Platforms. For more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881.

The Information Collected by or Through Third-party Advertising Companies
We may share other information about your activity on the Platforms with third parties for tailoring, analyzing, managing, reporting, and optimizing the advertising you see on the Platforms and elsewhere. These third parties may use cookies, pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs), or other technologies to collect other information for such purposes. Pixel tags enable us, and these third-party advertisers, to recognize a browser’s cookie when a user visits the site on which the pixel tag is located, in order to learn which advertisement brings a user to a given website.

How We Use and Share the Information
We use personal and non-personal information to process your donations, solicit your feedback, inform you about our products, events, and services, communicate information and ministry updates to you, and process product orders.

We may also use or share personal information and other information as described below:

● We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include providing technical assistance and marketing services. These other companies will have access to personal and other information—only as necessary— to perform their functions and to the extent permitted by law.
● In an ongoing effort to better understand visitors to the Platforms, we may analyze other information in aggregate form to operate, maintain, manage, and improve our company, products, and services. This aggregate information does not identify individuals personally. We may share this aggregate data with our affiliates, agents, and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics to describe our company, products, and services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
● We may share some or all personal information and other information with any of our parent companies, subsidiaries, or other companies under common control.
● To the extent permitted by law, we may also disclose personal information and other information (a) when required by law, court order, or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency, or (b) whenever we believe that disclosing such information is necessary or advisable (for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of AWMSA or other affiliated entities).
