Strict electronic, physical, and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of information. Access to information is limited to authorized individuals. All E.O.C.T.O. officers, members, and volunteers are bound by this Policy. All other policies are subject to this Policy.
Personal Data Collection
The E.O.C.T.O. only uses obvious and affirmative methods of collecting personal data. You will always know when you are providing such information—either because you voluntarily fill out a form or decide to contact us electronically. We do not combine online information with outside sources and do not collect or maintain any information beyond that necessary to offer the E.O.C.T.O. sites and services.
Through our forms and listed contacts, you may choose to send us your legal and/or craft name, snail-mail address, email addresses, email content, and phone number.
Non-Personal Data Collection
We do use non-identifying cookies to provide easier site navigation, access to certain features, and generate aggregate data about how the E.O.C.T.O. websites are used. However, these cookies do not generate personal data, do not read personal data from your machine, and are never tied to anything that can be used to identify you. You can still use the E.O.C.T.O. sites if your browser is set to reject cookies.
Our site logs also generate non-identifying usage data—such as the number of hits, number of visits, site referrals, entry and exit pages, browser types, IP numbers, originating hosts, number of unique visitors, and top geographic locations of visitors (US State or Country only). Like cookies, these statistics are never tied to anything that could be used to identify you. Site statistics are only used to promote the sites and measure how the site is used.
Personal Data Sharing
Personal data is never bartered, leased, sold or shared with outside parties.
Only you can initiate requests involving sharing. Such requests are expressly described and highlighted below. If you are uncomfortable with any particular sharing, please avoid those specific request forms or affirmative check boxes (which are all clearly labeled).
Personal Data Use
The following is a complete list of all the different ways your personal data may be used by the E.O.C.T.O..
- When you apply for membership in the E.O.C.T.O. and any of its lodges—we use our information to process your membership.
- When you sign up for the E.O.C.T.O. Announcement email list. Your email address will be used only by the E.O.C.T.O. for providing information about upcoming events and other Church information. You may remove your email address from this list by emailing the Office of Technology or following the instructions at the bottom of each email sent. This mailing list will never be shared with any other organization outside of the E.O.C.T.O.
- When you contact us, we use your information to answer you. Contact information is never compiled or used beyond the purpose for which it was submitted.
Reviewing & Correcting Personal Data
To later review, correct, or delete any other kind of maintained personal data, please email the Office of Technology.
