Greetings from Detour Ministries and welcome to our site. We extend the following information to assure you, our guest, that we are concerned about and respect your privacy while visiting our Web site. Detour Ministries will never sell, lease or rent your confidential information. However, if it is necessary, we will share information for legal reasons. We will always endeavor to take steps to assure that any information you provide to us will remain secure. We want you to feel safe in your online experience while visiting our site. We therefore request that you take a moment to review the following valuable information.

Collection of Information

Detour Ministries does not collect personal information without your knowledge during your visit to our website. However, Detour Ministries does at times ask that you provide us with personal information while online. The type of information we collect typically, but not always, corresponds directly with the service you request. For instance, you can make donations, when requested you can offer your thoughts, opinions, prayers, concerns, ideas, personal experiences, questions and/or suggestions to our resources, or you can request that a resource be sent to you directly from our Online Resource Center. As a visitor, the personal information you provide may also be used to improve the usability of, and information available on, our sites. In other words, at times we will ask you for more information, beyond just your name and contact information, than is needed to facilitate our response to your specific request. Your provision of such additional information is your acknowledgement that you consent to our use of such information to better serve you, our visitor, and others coming to our sites.

Detour Ministries will not sell, lease or rent its mailing list or any of your confidential information to any outside organization or individual. However, we may need to disclose personal information as required by law, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, search warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request, to enforce our Terms of Service, or site rules; or to protect the safety and security of our visitors and our sites.

Security

Our donation generator is a 3rd party ecommerce system which uses SSL encryption to protect sensitive data transmissions from your computer to their website. You are able to see when the SSL encryption is active either by the "padlock" icon at the bottom of your browser's window or by a blue line around the window. In certain areas, password protection is used to protect your privacy and security.

Detour reserves the right to make changes to this privacy policy at any time and requests that you review this policy for updates.
