Privacy Statement for Credit Card Donations

Maryland Bible Society is committed to protecting your privacy and deploying technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Maryland Bible Society Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the Maryland Bible Society website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.


In the course of you completing an online form that requests such information, Maryland Bible Society collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Maryland Bible Society. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Maryland Bible Society for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Maryland Bible Society Web site.

Maryland Bible Society encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from Maryland Bible Society so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. Maryland Bible Society is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Maryland Bible Society Web site.


Maryland Bible Society collects and uses your personal information to operate the Maryland Bible Society Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Maryland Bible Society also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of the services available from Maryland Bible Society and its affiliates.

Maryland Bible Society does not sell, rent or lease its constituent lists to third parties. In addition, Maryland Bible Society may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis and send you email or postal mail. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Maryland Bible Society, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Maryland Bible Society does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

The Maryland Bible Society Web site will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Maryland Bible Society or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Maryland Bible Society; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Maryland Bible Society, or the public.


The Maryland Bible Society Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Maryland Bible Society pages, or register with the Maryland Bible Society site or services, a cookie helps Maryland Bible Society to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Maryland Bible Society Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Maryland Bible Society features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Maryland Bible Society services or Web site.


Maryland Bible Society secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Maryland Bible Society secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.


Maryland Bible Society will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Maryland Bible Society encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Maryland Bible Society is protecting your information.


Maryland Bible Society welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that Maryland Bible Society has not adhered to this Statement, please contact Maryland Bible Society at 410-685-4040.
