AFMS Privacy & Security Notice
AFMS knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy and security policy. By visiting afmsociety.ca, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy and Security Notice.
Any personal information obtained by Adventist Frontier Mission Society is for the sole use of AFMS and will not be sold or used by any other organization. We will never sell, trade, share, or rent your personal information to other charities, merchant partners, or to any other companies or individuals without your prior consent.
Why do you need my personal information?
When you make a donation, you need to provide your name, email address, credit card, and billing information. This information allows us to process and fulfill your donation and to notify you of your donation status. Also, registration forms within the website may request users to submit contact information. Under no circumstances will any of your information be bartered, sold or shared with anyone other than the webmaster and co-workers on this website.
Do you track me on your website?
Yes, we may collect your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. (An IP address is the unique number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you log onto the Internet.) We also use IP addresses to monitor visitor traffic patterns and site usage to help us further develop and improve the content and design of our site. We do not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable about you.
Can I opt out of receiving information?
Yes. We recognize that your relationship with AFMS is voluntary. If you make an online donation and would NOT like to receive mission-related information from AFMS by regular or electronic mail, please call 855-428-2421 or send us a note.
How do you protect my personal information?
We protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. When you make donations, you do so using our secure server. This makes donating to AFMS over the Internet as secure as donating by telephone. You can tell if you are on our secure server in two ways: a key or closed lock will be visible at the top or bottom of your browser, or “https” will appear in either the address portion of your browser or in the URL of a selected hyperlink. For protection of your data, we recommend that you use a web-browser that supports a minimum of 128-bit encryption.
Adventist Frontier Mission Society is thoroughly committed to providing faithful stewardship of the funds our friends have entrusted to us for the planting of churches in unreached people groups. We are fully aware of the sacrifices our partners make, and we faithfully commit that the funds will be used wisely. Adventist Frontier Mission Society engages in full financial accountability by having our records audited annually by an outside accounting firm. A financial report of this audit, listing income and expenses, is available from our office.
This website contains links to other websites. AFMS is not responsible for privacy policies or content on those websites. Use external links at your own risk.
