The following policies may be changed at any time. Those changes occur at the sole discretion of the site owner and operator. Please visit this page regularly for updates.
Defining Grace is the personal ministry of Dan Wunderlich. Through this website, I make available resources I have created, publish articles, and link to outside sites and resources that I think will be beneficial to site visitors.
What Information Do I Collect and How Do I Collect It?
There are two different classes of information that may be gathered by this website.
Anonymous Information refers to information that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. For example, I use Google Analytics on this site to track statistics like page views, what sorts of devices are accessing the site, and general locations of site visitors (countries, states, cities, etc.). However, none of this information can be used to identify any individual user.
This kind of data is used to improve your user experience by understanding usage patterns. For example, tracking popularity of posts through page views helps to make future content decisions, and tracking types of devices accessing the site help to guide the design process so that the site is easy to use.
Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells me specifically who you are—such as your name and email address. When you enter this information in forms like the email subscription form or the contact form, you will be asked to check a box acknowledging consent of information collection before the form can be submitted.
In all cases, I will collect personally identifiable information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information. At the time of submission, I will tell you how I will use your information. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, I will never intentionally disclose any personally identifiable information about you as an individual to any third party without having received your permission.
Cookies and Tracking Information
This site currently employs Google Analytics and the Facebook Pixel to collect information on site users. This data is often tracked by using “cookies” during your visit. A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. There are also plug-ins available for most browsers that will limit and/or reject all attempts at tracking.
Information you enter when making a purchase or an online donation will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose of carrying out the transactions.
Outside Sites, Links, and Embedded Content
Embedded content from other providers may also track your interactions. For example, Google will track your interaction with embedded videos from YouTube. Similarly, social “share” buttons often result in a third party site or service tracking that activity—such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, etc. I do not collect or control any of the information involved in these interactions, nor do I control the privacy policies governing that data collection and storage.
I encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before interacting with content or providing any personal information.
Disclosure of Material Connection
Some of the links on this site are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission. Defining Grace is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program.
No Information Collected from Children.
I will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 13. If I obtain actual knowledge that I have collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately removed from any database or service. Because I do not collect such information, I have no such information to use or to disclose to third parties.
