The Colorado Satsang Society has a firm commitment to your privacy. You can visit www.Eckankar-Colorado.org without telling us who you are or sharing any personal information. We do have some Web pages where you have the option to provide the personal information necessary to place an order for spiritual materials. The following questions and answers explain when and how personal information is collected and used.
What kind of information do you collect?
We do not collect your personal information unless it is necessary for providing items, services, or information to you at your request.
We collect the following kinds of information:
We automatically collect anonymous usage information that does not identify an individual user (“Non-Personal Information”) to help us understand how users use the Eckankar In Colorado Website. For example, each time you use the Eckankar In Colorado Website we automatically collect the type of Web browser you use, your operating system, your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, the pages you view, and the time and duration of your visits to the Website.
We do not record your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, credit-card numbers, or any other personally identifying information.
Colorado Satsang Society only collects personally identifying information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, and/or credit-card information, if you choose to provide that information to the Colorado Satsang Society by:
- requesting a free book to be mailed to you (no credit-card information requested),
- ordering books,
- preregistering for a seminar,
- making an online donation, or
- signing up to receive e-mail from the Colorado Satsang Society (no credit-card information requested).
How do you protect my personal information?
The information collected when you submit a Web form to us is encrypted, downloaded, and removed from our Web server. We do not store any personal information on our Web server.
How do you protect my credit-card information?
Credit-card information is protected against unauthorized use by a VeriSign Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security certificate. SSL scrambles your credit-card information so that only your Web browser, our Web site’s server, and the Colorado Satsang Society staff that processes your request can decipher it. When you submit a Web form, we apply encryption to all information collected.
How can I tell when my transactions are secure?
Your browser will show you when you are making a secure transaction in two main ways. When you access a secure form at www.Eckankar-Colorado.org, “http” in the address bar in your browser will change to “https.” Somewhere in your browser window, you will also see a locked-padlock icon. These indicators tell you that all information entered on that page will be encrypted when you submit the form.
Does the Colorado Satsang Society sell or rent my information?
Absolutely not. All information collected will be used only by the Colorado Satsang Society and authorized Eckankar church affiliates with your permission.
Will I receive unsolicited e-mail from Eckankar?
The Colorado Satsang Society does not send unsolicited e-mail.
At www.Eckankar-colorado.org, only those who have signed up for e-mail from the Colorado Satsang Society will be sent e-mails from us.
Does the Colorado Satsang Society collect information from children?
No, we do not knowingly collect information from visitors age 17 and under.
