Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. We will not share your information with any third party outside of BeFree Community Church.
Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our site. This log data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, and other statistics.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Cookies also enable us to track the interests of our site visitors to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

If you post a comment to our blog (including all sermons), you must first identify yourself with your name and an email address. This information is stored in the password-protected administrative section of the site and may be used to respond to your comment(s), either directly on the site or via direct email communication.
If you fill out a Contact Form found on one of our “Contact Us” pages throughout the site, your information is automatically forwarded to a staff member for the corresponding BeFree location. No personal information is collected and/or stored within the site or any third party storage option.
If you fill out a Registration Form for our Children Delighting in God (DIG) ministry, your child’s information is automatically forwarded to the Children’s Ministry Director for the corresponding BeFree location. No personal information about your child is collected and/or stored within the site. Your child’s information is stored in a Google Drive document owned by the Children’s Ministry Director for record and emergency purposes. Note: DIG Registration Forms collect birth dates, medical and allergy information, emergency contact information, and image privacy preferences for minors; if you have any concerns about information security, please contact the Children’s Ministry Director at the corresponding BeFree location.
Occasionally, we ask for your name and contact information (usually an email address) through an RSVP form. This information is automatically forwarded to the event organizer and is not collected and/or stored within the site or any third party storage option.
