Why we collect private information about you
Plumbline Network is dedicated to bringing life to your story through education, inspiration and teachings from the Bible. We work on a variety of projects to bring this vision to life, including furthering the Plumbline TV show, providing educational courses and materials like books, CDs and more in our Shop, and organizing conferences and speaking events. We collect your information so that we can communicate with you about all the exciting things happening at Plumbline Network and how you can be involved. We do not use your information for any purposes other than to further our projects and goals and to inform you of the work we do.
We might also use your information for the following purposes:
- for the immediate reason for which you have provided it to us (for example, to enable us to process your request, payment, registration, subscription, etc);
- to maintain contact with you about our work, to report to you about our work, or to encourage you to learn about what we do; and
- any other purpose directly related to our work and for which you have provided consent (where it is reasonably required by law).
We don’t rent, sell or exchange your information. The types of organizations to whom we normally disclose your personal information include those who help us administer our technology information systems.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that these organizations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations when handling your personal information.
If you don’t want your personal information disclosed to another organization, and your information has not been collected digitally where you have signed the privacy statement, please let us know either at the time we collect your information by other means or any later time. Sometimes we may be legally required to disclose your information, for example, to government departments.
We may also sometimes share non-personal, non-sensitive and de-identified information with research organizations.

Accessing and correcting your personal information
You can access your information by asking us or by logging in to your Plumbline account. Occasionally, we may need to refuse your request to access information, for example, where granting you access would infringe someone else’s privacy.
When you request access, we will ask you to provide some form of identification so that we can ensure that you are the person to whom the information relates.
In some cases, we may also ask you to pay a reasonable fee to cover the cost of access.

As a result, we may disclose your personal information to our overseas facilities or contractors for these purposes. Any disclosure of your personal information overseas does not change our commitment to safeguarding your privacy. We do not otherwise disclose or transfer your personal information overseas.
Securing your information
We take reasonable steps to ensure the security of personal and sensitive information we hold and to protect it against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.
Our IT systems are password protected and comply with applicable security standards. Only authorized personnel are permitted to access these details.
It is our policy to:
permanently de-identify personal information where reasonable and possible; and
destroy personal information once there is no longer a legal or business need for us to retain it.
It is your right to be dealt with anonymously, provided that is it lawful and practicable.
We will try to accommodate a request for anonymity wherever possible, however we note that in some circumstances, this may prevent us from practically and effectively communicating with you. If this is the case we will notify you.
