Privacy policy

Graceway recognizes that your privacy is important to you and that you have a right to control your personal information. We acknowledge that when you provide personal information about yourself to another party it is an act of trust. In response, Graceway takes the process of upholding an individual’s privacy seriously. This privacy policy applies to all of Graceway’s website. These web sites are collectively referred to in this Privacy Policy as the “Site”. Unless you give Graceway explicit consent to act otherwise, the following policy will govern how Graceway handles your personal information and safeguards your privacy. By using any Site, you are giving us your express consent to use all the information that we collect about you in the manner described in this policy. This includes the release of such information to owners of each respective Site and third parties as described below.

Collection and use of personal information

Graceway collects two different types of information. One type is voluntary information, which you provide, such as registration information for events, membership information, or shipping and billing information. The other type of information Graceway collects is user information provided by your computer each time you visit this site, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or browser. The information that Graceway collects helps us to provide information and service to you. We may combine information from other sources with the information that we collect. Any information that you provide to Graceway or that is obtained through the Site may be used by Graceway or the respective owners of the Site. Graceway will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to commercial entities. Graceway may offer services to you such as chat rooms, message boards, or other similar discussion forums. Please be aware that any information you divulge in these arenas is deemed public information and is not protected.

Cookies and other technologies

The Sites, online services, interactive applications, and email messages may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. A cookie is a small file or part of a file stored on a World Wide Web user’s computer, created and subsequently read by a web site server, and containing personal information (as a user identification code, customized preferences, or a record of pages visited). These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of the Site people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy. Graceway also uses cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use the Site, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience while on the Site more convenient and personal. We do not use cookies to obtain any personal information about you before or after you leave the Site. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to either refuse all cookies or to notify you when you are receiving a cookie and allow you to decide whether or not to accept it. As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the Site, to learn about user behavior on the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Graceway may use this information in our marketing and advertising services. Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

Links to other sites

As a courtesy, Graceway may provide links to other sites that are neither owned nor controlled by Graceway. Some of these sites may use the Graceway logo. These third party sites, however, are NOT subject to or bound by this Privacy Policy. Such third party sites may or may not have their own privacy policies and may or may not collect personal information from you or place cookies on your browser. Graceway is not responsible for the privacy policies or any information collection practices of these sites or any damages resulting therefrom.

Service providers

Graceway shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information.

Protection of personal information

Graceway takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Graceway uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where financial information is collected. When making donations to Graceway or purchasing any products sold through our websites, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it’s transmitted over the Internet. When you use some Graceway services or applications or post on a Graceway forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances.

Updates and amendments to the privacy policy

Graceway reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy, at any time. It is your responsibility to check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes.
