Our Commitment to Privacy

Koinonia Conference Grounds is committed to providing a safe online experience to people of all ages who may visit this site.

The Information We Collect

A. Non-Identifiable Information

We collect information through technology to make our site more interesting and useful to you. For instance, when you come to one of our sites, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet Service Provider). Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our guests visit various parts of our site.

We also collect the anonymous information through the use of “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 features of our website use cookies to better serve you when you return to our 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. If you do so, however, some areas of our website may not function properly. Cookies do not collect or contain personally identifiable information such as you or your child’s name or email address.

B. Personally Identifiable Information

Much of the personally identifiable information we receive comes directly from website visitors who are registering a child for camp, inquiring about staff positions, or logging on as a parent, camper, staff member, or guest. Typically, this information includes, but is not limited to, camper registration information, staff applicant information, visitor’s name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number.

C. Health Information

In the camper registration area, information relating to the health history of the camper is requested. Our guidelines with respect to health history information can be found in our Health Information Policy.

D. Payment Information

In order for you to provide payment for a camper’s deposit and tuition, your credit card &/or bank account information will be collected to process payment. If you elect to provide payment for camper tuition via recurring payments, your credit card &/or bank account information will be retained in our secure system.

If you have completed an online transaction using a credit card, we may request your permission to retain your credit card information to simplify future transactions and make communications about past transactions. When credit card information is retained, it is kept secure (in encrypted form) and separate from other demographic information you may have given us.

How Your Information is Used

We will use the information you provide to process enrollment requests and orders, provide you with services on our website, and share product, service or camp news and offers with you. On occasion, you may receive notice of events.

Your information will not be disclosed to any third party except when we deem it necessary to fulfill a specific request or obligation to you or in order to comply with valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order.

Our Commitment to Data Security

The security and confidentiality of your information is important to us. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods.

Koinonia transmits confidential and personally identifiable information using 256-bit Secure Socket Layers (SSL) encryption to protect its privacy and integrity. Payment information is stored in an encrypted form in a secured database.

Our Commitment to Children's Privacy

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) applies to the online collection of personal information from children under the age of 13. It is designed to ensure that parents are in control over what information is collected from children under 13. Our enrollment, health history, and payment procedures require all information related to children under the age of 18 be submitted by a parent or legal guardian.

You may also choose to have your name taken off our correspondence list and, thus, cease to receive correspondence from us by contacting us through one of the channels listed in the preceding paragraph.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes the types of information we currently collect, and the ways we use and protect that information. From time to time, we may collect different types of information and use that information in different ways - for example, when we add features or services to gotocamp.org. In these cases, we may edit this policy to explain the new practices. Because protecting your privacy is important to us, we do not expect major changes in policy.
