COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES

We sometimes collect anonymous information from visits to our site to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit and we also measure visitor activity on The Wesleyan Church website, but we do so in ways that keep the information anonymous. This anonymous information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” The Wesleyan Church or its vendors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service.

Also, when we collect personal data from you in connection with a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information such as clickstream data. This anonymous information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. None of this information is reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner, you can either disable your cookies or opt-out at the order or request page.

We collect the anonymous information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through the use of various technologies, including one called “cookies.” A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. Some pages at www.wesleyan.org may use cookies, sent by The Wesleyan Church or its third party vendors/partners, or other technologies to better serve you when you return to the site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies.
