We take your privacy very seriously. With regard to personal information, we will never share any details that personally identify you, like your name, email address, or phone number.
However, there are two basic types of personal info we collect:
1. The personal information you provide directly through this website when contacting Upper Room; and
2. Specific technical details collected by using this website.
PERSONAL INFO YOU SHARE:
Upper Room may collect personal information directly from you such as your name, phone number, or email address. This information may be collected by doing any of the following when visiting this website:
- Submitting messages through the contact form;
- Requesting information about Upper Room services;
- Leaving comments on Upper Room blog posts; or

TECHNICAL INFO WE COLLECT:
During a visit to upperroomkc.org, we may collect some technical data including, the amount of time you spend on our site, the pages you visit, links you click on, your specific web browser type and version, internet service-provider identification, and possibly your IP address. This information is collected in the aggregate and is completely anonymous. It does not contain information that directly identifies you specifically. However, such information may become non-anonymous to the extent that it becomes coupled with personal information provided by you. Also, because Upper Room may advertise on social networks or other third-party websites from time to time, it’s important to note that some user data may be collected for purposes of conversion tracking and serving up ads targeted to users’ interests. You can opt-out of third-party interest-based advertising using the Do Not Track functionality in your web browser. Privacy settings on social media sites may also be managed directly through the account settings of each respective platform.
As you interact with this website, our service providers may place cookies on your system. Website cookies are small files that are sent to your specific internet browser from a web server and stored on your computer for record-keeping purposes. In general, cookies make the Internet more useful by storing information about your preferences on a particular system. They help to improve website usage, personalize your experience, and in general, provide you with better service.
You may change your individual browser settings to disable cookies. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found on the browser’s respective websites.
The personal information collected may be used to do things like:
- Process your requests for information;
- Improve customer service, whether its following up on an inquiry or responding to a technical support request;
- Improve our website, as improvements are frequently made based on the feedback provided by users;
- Administer various website features;
- Enable you to post your feedback and other content to the blog; and
- Enable you to interact with third-party content and service providers (like Facebook, for example), whether by viewing their content on our website or within their own environment, or by linking directly to their websites.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION:
Upper Room takes information security very seriously and uses every reasonable administrative, technical, physical and managerial measure to protect your data from unauthorized access. Any personal information you provide is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and who are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, any/all sensitive information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer Technology (an industry-standard data transmission protocol).
Upper Room may provide access to specific information about our website visitors when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website, to limit our legal liability, and to protect our rights or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our customers, the public, or our business.
In short, unless legally compelled to do so, Upper Room will never share your personal information with anyone. Further, no personally-identifiable data will ever be provided by Upper Room to third-party marketing firms, advertisers, or market research companies.
We honor Do Not Track signals and Do Not Track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place. It’s also important to note that we do not allow third-party behavioral tracking.
LINKS TO/FROM THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES:
Conversely, you should be aware that other websites linking to upperroomkc.org may contain privacy provisions that differ from ours.
To ensure your privacy is protected, we recommend that you review the privacy statements of other websites you visit.
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act):
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
We do not knowingly solicit data from or specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
FAIR INFORMATION PRACTICES:
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In accordance with Fair Information Practices, you will be notified via email within 7 business days should a data breach occur.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
We collect your email address in order to send information and respond to inquiries.
To be in accordance with CAN-SPAM, we agree to the following:
- we agree to never use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
- we agree to identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
- we agree to include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
- we agree to monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
- we agree to honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
- we agree to allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future messages, you can follow the instructions provided at the bottom of each email.
