As a general policy, no personally identifiable information, such as a visitor’s name, address, email address, telephone number, or credit card information is automatically collected on our websites. Such information is collected only when it is knowingly and voluntarily submitted, and Western Hills United Methodist Church uses such information only for the purpose for which it was submitted unless we disclose other uses in this policy or at the time of collection.

Children’s Privacy

The Site is not directed to children under the age of 13.

COPPA – Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act

An operator of a site directed to children does not need to notify parents or obtain their consent if it blurs the facial features of children in photos before posting them on its website.  See 2012 Statement of Basis and Purpose, 78 Fed. Reg. 3972, 3982 n.123.  The same goes for a site that has actual knowledge it has collected the photos from children.  Before posting such photos, however, the operator must also remove any other personal information they contain, such as geolocation metadata, and ensure that it is not using or disclosing persistent identifiers collected from children in a manner that violates the amended Rule.  Source
