Privacy Policy
Last update: April 01, 2011

Thank you for accessing ChristFirstClothing.Com (“Site”) operated by Christ First Development Group, Inc. We respect your privacy and want to protect any personal information shared on this Site. To learn more, please read this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use your personal information. This Privacy Policy also explains the steps we have taken to secure your personal information. Finally, this Privacy Policy explains your options regarding the collection and use of your personal information. By visiting the Site directly or through another site, you accept the practices described in this Policy.

This privacy policy applies to the Site. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any web site not operated by Christ First Development Group, Inc. to which the Site links or that links to this Site.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

1. Information Collection.

We collect information from you with the goal of providing an efficient and meaningful experience.
For example, we can use your personal information to:

Help you quickly find information, products, and services
Help us create content, products and services that are most relevant to you
Alert you to new information, products, and services that we offer to Site Members

(a) Site Membership Registration and Ordering. Before using certain parts of this Site or ordering products, you must complete an online registration form. During registration on this Site, you will be prompted to provide us certain personal information, including your name and email address. Additional information, such as billing, shipping and credit card information is needed to complete Site Membership Registration and to submit payments for orders. All billing, shipping and credit card information is retrieved securely utilizing Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) and processed exclusively via PayPal.Com—an industry leader in secured worldwide merchant payment processing. Please read PayPal’s Privacy Policy for more details. If we encounter a problem when processing your order, your personal information may be used to contact you.

(b) Email Addresses. Several locations of the Site permit you to enter your email address for purposes including but not limited to: registering for Site Membership; to contact us with inquires, submit files and/or submit bids. Your participation is completely voluntary, so you have a choice whether to participate and disclose information to us. We use this information to correspond with you if a response is requested.

(c) Cookies and Other Technology. Like many sites, the Site employs cookies and web beacons (also known as clear GIF technology or “action tags”) to speed your navigation of the Site, recognize you and your access privileges, and track your Site usage.

(i) Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored as text files by your Internet browser on your computer’s hard drive. Most Internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to refuse cookies from web sites or to remove cookies from your hard drive, but if you do, you may not be able to access or use portions of the Site. We have to use cookies to enable you to select products, place them in an online shopping cart, and to purchase those products. THE SITE’S COOKIES DO NOT AND CANNOT INFILTRATE A USER’S HARD DRIVE TO GATHER A USER’S CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. Our cookies are not “spyware.”

(ii) Web beacons assist in delivering cookies and help us determine whether a web page on the Site has been viewed and, if so, how many times. For example, any electronic image on the Site, such as an ad banner, can function as a web beacon.

(d) Log Files. As is true of most web sites, the Site server automatically recognizes the Internet URL from which you access the Site. We may also log your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, Internet service provider, and date/time stamp for system administration, order verification, internal marketing, and system troubleshooting purposes. (An IP address may indicate the location of your computer on the Internet.)

(e) Age. We respect children’s privacy. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information from children under age 13. Elsewhere on the Site, you have represented and warranted that you are either 18 years of age or using the Site with the supervision of a parent or guardian. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to us, and rely on a parent or guardian to assist you.

2. Information Use.

(a) Internal Use. We use your personal information to process your order and provide you with customer service. We may internally use your personal information to improve the Sites’ content and layout, to improve outreach and for our own marketing efforts (including marketing our services and products to you).

(b) Communications with You: We will use your personal information to communicate with you about Site Membership and your orders, returns and deliveries. Also, we may send you a confirmation email when you register with us. We may send you Site Memberships updated passwords to ensure uninterrupted access to the Site’s Member Catalog.

(c) External Use. We want to provide you with excellent service and to offer you a great faith-based product selection. We do not sell, rent, trade, license or otherwise disclose your specific personal information to third parties. Financial information, such as credit card information, billing and shipping information is retrieved and processed via PayPal.

(i) We may disclose such information in response to requests from law enforcement officials conducting investigations; subpoenas; a court order; or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We also will release personal information where disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights, enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements, or to protect ourselves or others. For example, we may share information to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use the Site for illegal reasons or to commit fraud.

(ii) We will not sell (or trade or rent) personally identifiable information to other companies as part of our regular course of business. However, it’s possible that we might acquire or merge with or be acquired by another company or that we might dispose of some or all of our assets. If that happens, your personal information may be disclosed to another company, but that disclosure will be subject to the Privacy Policy in effect.

DATA SECURITY

The Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) for all financial transactions through the Site via PayPal. SSL encryption protects your personal information online, and additional measures are taken to protect your personal information in our office. Access to your personal information is restricted. Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job, such as packaging and shipping are granted access to your personal information. Finally, we rely on third-party service providers for the physical security of some of our computer hardware. We believe that their security procedures are adequate. For example, when you visit the Site, you access servers that are kept in a secure physical environment, protected by electronic firewall.

While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.

CANCELLATIONS/CORRECTIONS

Upon your request, we will (a) correct or update your personal information; (b) stop sending emails to your email address; and/or (c) disable your Membership account to prevent any future purchases through that account. You can make these requests by telephoning or emailing your request to CF Customer Care 682-231-2011, 773-998-1998 or: Info@ChristFirstClothing.Com

Please do not email your credit-card number or other sensitive information.

OFFLINE COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION

As you might expect from us, the majority of information that we collect is obtained through the Site, and this Privacy Policy applies only to that online collection of personal information. We also may collect information offline, where we also try to protect the privacy of your personal information. One example involves someone calling us to place an order or to ask questions. When someone calls, we will ask only for the personal information we need in order to place the order or to answer the question. When we need to store information (such as order information), we will enter it into our database through SSL encryption. (See the Data Security section above for more information). Another example involves faxes. If you fax something to us, we will act upon the fax and then either store it in a locked repository or we will shred the fax if there is no need to retain the information. There are other ways we could learn of personal information offline (for example, we suppose someone could send us a letter including some return address information), and this Policy doesn’t discuss or try to predict all of those methods or uses. As we mentioned, we will try to treat offline collection, uses, and disclosures consistently with our relevant online practices.

UPDATES TO THIS POLICY

If we change or update this Privacy Policy, we will post changes and updates on the Site so that you will always be aware of what information we collect and use. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy from time to time so you will know if the Privacy Policy has been changed or updated. If you have any questions about the Privacy Policy, please contact us at 682-231-2011, 773-998-1998 or Info@ChristFirstClothing.Com.
