Privacy Policy

Updated July 25th, 2018.

Who we are

We are St. George’s Church Lowville, located on 7051 Guelph Line, Campbelville (Milton), Ontario in Canada.

(Municipally, we are considered to be within the town of Milton, and we are served by the Campbellville post office. For historical reasons, we still identify as being a church of Lowville, despite Lowville being considered to be in Burlington now. Thus, you may see any of these three towns represented as our address in different contexts, but they are all the same Church.)

Our current minister is Reverend Nigel Bunce, who can be contacted through our Contact Us page, or called at (519) 822-0276.

Our website address is: http://www.stgeorgeslowville.ca

Data retention, protection, rights, and sharing

St. George’s Church Lowville’s Website does not collect, store, share, or protect any data ourselves. We do not utilize tracking cookies or collect personal data about our users in any way. The only cookie our website itself uses is one to determine if you’ve read our Privacy Policy popup message or not, so that we know when and when not to show it to you.

However, we do utilize several Plugins (small, third-party add-ons to our website) that may use cookies or collect data about you. The following companies are responsible for these Plugins: Rock Lobster, LLC. and Google. To see their policies on data retention, protection, rights, and sharing, please follow the links to their privacy policies, listed below in the appropriate section.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact Forms

St. George’s Church Lowville’s Website utilizes the Contact Form 7 Plugin, owned and developed by Rock Lobster, LLC., to power the contact forms on our website. We use this plugin to allow our visitors to easily contact us via an automated email process, and also to make it more difficult for bots to send us spam emails, as our actual email addresses are hidden from view.

St. George’s Church Lowville’s Website does not view, collect, store, or take responsibility for any of the data that is passed into this plugin by you when you submit a contact request. Rock Lobster, LLC. may collect or use your data according to their own Privacy Policy. The Privacy Policy for the plugin itself can be found at the following address: https://contactform7.com/privacy-policy/

If you use our Contact Form to send us emails, we will only use the information contained within for personal interactions or transactions between you and St. George’s Church Lowville, and any other parties you indicate in the email. We will not use any information sent to us in an email commercially without your consent, and we will not share it with any third parties without your consent.

We assume that all emails sent to us are devoid of any sensitive or personal information (unless stated otherwise) and thus will retain them as long as they are needed. We may use your emails to respond to you regarding our services or questions you may have, to book appointments, arrange transactions, or other interactions as requested and consented to by you.

If your email does contain sensitive or personal information, you can instruct us to delete the email after reading it. If you previously sent us any sensitive or personal information in an email, or do not want us to retain emails from you for any reason, you may let us know at any time and we will delete the email(s) you specify immediately.
