This privacy policy describes International Baptist Missions’ current policies and practices with regard to personal data collected by International Baptist Missions through this website. This privacy policy does not apply to information collected offline or in any other way. The term “personal data” refers to personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, date of birth, e-mail address or mailing address, and any other information that identifies you personally.

Your Consent

By using this website you consent to our use of your personal data as described in this privacy policy.

Notification of Changes to this Policy

International Baptist Missions, as a ministry of Tri-City Baptist Church Ministries, is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to this website.  We are also improving and adding to existing services and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, International Baptist Missions data practices will occasionally change. If and when our data practices change, International Baptist Missions will post the changes on this website to notify you of the change(s). We encourage you to review this page frequently.

Personal Data Collected through this Website

The only personal data International Baptist Missions currently collects through this website is the information you give us while using our website.  This includes, for example, the information you provide when you register for a newsletter, when you send us comments, or when you request additional information.


When visitors leave comments on the website we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

The information you provide in contact forms, such as a form requesting information, is used for that exact purpose.  The information is used to respond to your e-mail or provide the programs or services you requested.  We also use this information to help improve the content and functionality of this website.  International Baptist Missions may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about programs, services, and other opportunities we believe will be of interest to you or to ask for your support.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What Rights You Have Over Your Data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where We Send Your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.  In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which International Baptist Missions may share or transfer the personal information in our databases.  For example, to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, to protect the security or integrity of our databases or this website, to take precautions against legal liability, or in the event of a corporate merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event.


International Baptist Missions does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under thirteen, please do not give us any personal data. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal data to International Baptist Missions, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases. As we develop online programs for children, we will adopt appropriate policies and practices to protect the privacy of children.
