Who the platform serves:
What information ABHMS collects, uses and shares and with whom:
Please remember that any information that you disclose in public areas of our site, such as forums and communities, become public information that others may collect, circulate, and use. Because we cannot and do not control the acts of others, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose information about yourself or others in public forums such as these.
In some sections of ministrElife, anonymous users are allowed to post content and/or participate in community discussions to protect their privacy. In such a case, no user name can be associated with such a user.
If you do not want your personally identifiable information collected and used by ministrElife.org, please do not visit the site or apply for registration.

The types of personally identifiable information you provide to us on these pages may include but not be limited to name, address, phone number, e-mail address, or passwords.

If you choose to reject cookies, certain functions and conveniences of our site may not work properly, and you may be unable to use those ministrElife’s services that require registration in order to participate, or you will have to re-register each time you visit our site.

From time to time ministrElife requests information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose the requested information. Survey information will be used for purposes of informing, monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the site.

How any data collected is stored/protected:
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via ministrElife.org, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees of ABHMS who need the information to perform a specific job function are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
How you as a user can control your information:
MinistrElife.org is committed to keeping the personally identifiable information of our members accurate. We provide our members with online access to their own personal profiles, enabling them to update or delete information at any time. To protect our members’ privacy and security, we also may take reasonable steps to verify identity and password, before granting access to modify personal profile data. Certain areas of the site may be inaccessible to general users. Specific individuals may have greater access based on the role given to that individual by the site administrators.
