Acknowledgment of Terms

Divine Glory Life Ministries is committed to protecting your privacy and takes very seriously the usage, collection and transference of personal data. The Policy below states our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when your computer or you personally interact with our website.

 

Collection of Personal Information

We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us when you create an account, make a purchase, or fill any online form on our Website. When required, this information may include your email address, name, phone number, address, credit card information, bank information, or other Personal Information. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Website’s features. Users who are uncertain about what information is mandatory are welcome to contact us.

Our Website, https://www.divineglorylife.com, is hosted through WP Engine, a WordPress platform. It is uncertain to us exactly how much access WP Engine has to your Personal Information that you submit into our Website. If desired, you may read WP Engine’s privacy policy at: https://wpengine.com/legal/privacy/.

 

Collection of Non-Personal Information

When you visit the Website, our server automatically records information that your browser sends. This data may include information such as your device’s IP address, browser type and version, operating system type and version, language preferences, the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Website, pages of our Website that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Website, access times and dates, and other statistics.

 

Managing Personal Information

You are able to access, add to, update and delete certain Personal Information about you. The specific information you can view, update, and delete may change as the Website or Services change. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. Some information may remain in our private records after your deletion of such information from your account. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. Once the retention period expires for aggregated data, Personal Information shall be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification, and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after the expiration of the retention period.

 

Use and Processing of Collected Information

Any of the information we collect from you may be used to personalize your experience; improve our Website; improve customer service; respond to queries and emails of our customers; process transactions; send notification emails such as password reminders, updates, etc.; run and operate our Website and Services. Non-Personal Information collected is used only to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding our Website usage. Statistical information is not aggregated in such a way that would identify any particular user of the system.

We may process Personal Information related to you if one of the following applies: (i) You have given consent for one or more specific purposes. Note that under some legislations we may be allowed to process information until you object to such processing (by opting out), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases below. This, however, does not apply whenever the processing of Personal Information is subject to European data protection law; (ii) Provision of Information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof; (iii) Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which you are subject; (iv) Processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us; (v) Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. In any case, we will be happy to clarify, upon request, the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.

 

Information Transfer and Storage

Depending on your location, data transfers may involve transferring and storing your Information in a country other than your own. You are entitled to learn about the legal basis of information transfers to a country outside the European Union or to any international organization governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by us to safeguard your Information. If any such transfer takes place, you can find out more by checking the relevant sections of this document or inquire with us using the information provided in the contact section below.

 

The Rights of Users

You may exercise certain rights regarding your Information processed by us. In particular, you have the right to do the following: (i) you have the right to withdraw consent (opt out) where you have previously given your consent to the processing of your Information; (ii) you have the right to object to the processing of your Information if the processing is carried out on a legal basis other than consent; (iii) you have the right to learn if information is being processed by us, obtain disclosure regarding certain aspects of the processing, and obtain a copy of the information undergoing processing; (iv) you have the right to verify the accuracy of your Information and ask for it to be updated or corrected; (v) you have the right, under certain circumstances, to restrict the processing of your Information, in which case, we will not process your Information for any purpose other than storing it; (vi) you have the right, under certain circumstances, to obtain the erasure of your Personal Information from us; (vii) you have the right to receive your Information in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format and, if technically feasible, to have it transmitted to another controller without any hindrance. This provision is applicable provided that your Information is processed by automated means and that the processing is based on your consent, on a contract which you are part of or on pre-contractual obligations thereof.

 

The Right to Object to Processing

Where Personal Information is processed for a public interest, in the exercise of an official authority vested in us, or for purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us, you may object to such processing by providing a ground related to your particular situation to justify the objection. You must know that, however, should your Personal Information be processed for direct marketing purposes, you can object to that processing at any time without providing any justification. To learn whether we are processing Personal Information for direct marketing purposes, you may refer to the relevant sections of this document or make inquiry to us.

 

How to Exercise These Rights

Any requests to exercise User rights can be directed to our Website Owner through the contact details provided in this document. These requests can be exercised free of charge and will be addressed by the Owner as early as possible and always within one month.

 

Billing and Payments

In case you use Services requiring payment, we request credit card or other payment account Information, which will be used solely for processing payments. Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction Information is deleted.

Scans for malware are performed on a regular basis for additional security and protection.
