How the Information is Used
No Sharing of Personal Information
BMF never sells, rents, leases or exchanges your personal information with other organizations. BMF assures you that the identity of all who contact us through this Web site will be kept confidential. BMF may, on rare occasions, send mailings on behalf of other organizations or ministries when their interests align with BMF. Use of your personal information will be limited to further the ministry objectives of BMF.
BMF is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the proper use of information, we have established and implemented appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. BMF currently uses Internet Encryption Software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Any information you enter is encrypted at your browser, sent over the public Internet in encrypted form, and then de-encrypted at our server. Once we receive your credit card information, it is accessible only to a small number of trusted employees who have been specially trained in processing this information.
Children's Online Privacy
We are concerned about the privacy of young children and do not knowingly collect any personal information from a child under 13. We encourage you to become involved with your child's access to the Internet and to our site in order to ensure that his or her privacy is well protected. To read more about online safety and how to become more involved with your child's online experience, visit the Federal Trade Commission. You may also benefit from the information and resources available on ProtectKids.com.
