Information We Collect
There are three different ways in which we collect information from visitors on our Web site:
- From online requests for information (i.e. e-mail newsletters, contact forms, etc.);
- From online requests for materials from our organization (i.e. requesting a free offer,
or committing your life to Christ.);
- From online donations
The information we collect online includes name, address, city, state, ZIP/postal code, telephone number, e-mail address, and, in the case of online donations or online shopping, credit card number and expiration date. In order to continually improve our service to you and tailor our future communications to you, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your demographics, comments, professional interests, and contact preferences.
How the Information is Used
In addition, BGEA will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. We may periodically send you e-mail announcing news and event information. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive mailings from us as well.
No Sharing of Personal Information
BGEA never sells, rents, leases or exchanges your personal information with other organizations. BGEA assures you that the identity of all who contact us through this Web site will be kept confidential. BGEA may occasionally send mailings on behalf of other organizations or ministries when their interests align with BGEA. Use of your personal information will be limited to further the ministry activities of BGEA and partner ministries.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada (BGEAC) retains your personal information as confidential.

Please contact the BGEAC at 1-800-293-3717 or e-mail email@example.com if you do not want your information to be used for the purposes described.
