With such a large growing community, these automations are critical to freeing time for being more present to the community without an otherwise administrative burden.
3. HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We may receive data from third parties such as analytics providers such as Google based outside the EU, advertising networks such as Facebook based outside the EU, such as search information providers such as Google based outside the EU, providers of technical, payment and delivery services, or similar.
We may also receive data from publicly availably sources.
4. MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS
Our lawful ground of processing your personal data to send you marketing communications is either your consent or our legitimate interests (namely to grow our business, thus reaching more individuals with our message).
Under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, we may send you marketing communications from us if (i) you made a purchase or asked for information from us about our goods or services or (ii) you agreed to receive marketing communications and in each case you have not opted out of receiving such communications since. You can opt out of receiving marketing emails from us at any time.
Under ICO guidance regarding marketing communications, we may rely on the basis of legitimate interests to market to you. We spend a substantial portion of our overall time creating content which is free. As can be expected, delivering these services come at a monetary cost as well as in time invested. The founder of this ministry, Rebekah R Jones, volunteered 100% of her more than full time work for over one year before ever taking any small salary to support her family, while ensuring the ministry could sustain growth. This value and heart remains in the way we do business and while at times comes at a cost, is a labor of love.
We believe people understand the fundamental need for a worker to earn a living to provide for their family and that those who use the services of this ministry wish for Rebekah and her team to be able to continue investing 100% of their work time into the continuance and growth of this ministry by earning a living which supports them not seeking work elsewhere. We believe users of the services of this ministry understand these practical needs which allow us to reach a growing number of people with our message, through dedication in time committed to the cause and in paying necessary expenses to run the ministry through charging for some services.
We believe that how we use data is proportionate and has a minimal privacy impact. Because of the way in which we communicate and inform users about both free and paid content throughout their experience with our services, we believe people would not be surprised to get this proportionate amount of marketing, or likely object and of course, they would not be caused harm by our marketing to them on this basis of legitimate interests.
You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by logging into the school website (if a student) and checking or unchecking relevant boxes to adjust your marketing preferences. Anyone can follow the opt-out links on the footer of any email sent to you or, by emailing us at [email protected] at any time. If you opt out of marketing (which we hope you won’t), we would stop communicating via email and/or advertizing regarding any new paid-for opportunities. All communications regarding previous purchases and/or regarding any free content and/or services, would continue to come until such time as you unsubscribe fully at the bottom of any email you receive. Emails would stop coming relatively quickly after these actions and advertizement preference would be updated on a monthly basis where possible.
If you opt out of receiving marketing communications, this opt-out does not apply to personal data provided as a result of other transactions, such as purchases, etc.
We never share your personal data with any third party for their own marketing purposes.

6. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data, so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria.
Many of our third parties service providers are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we do our best to ensure a similar degree of security of data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is in place:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission have approved as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data by; or
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or
- If we use US-based providers that are part of EU-US Privacy Shield, we may transfer data to them, as they have equivalent safeguards in place.

We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach if we are legally required to.
8. DATA RETENTION
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
When deciding what the correct time is to keep the data for, we look at its amount, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, the processing purposes, if these can be achieved by other means and legal requirements.
For tax purposes the law requires us to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for seven years after they stop being customers.
In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you, as it would no longer identify you.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights).
