Such information may be requested in connection with our sweepstakes, contests, games, surveys, subscription registrations, content submissions, requests for suggestions, visitors' requests for products or services, and visitors' requests for additional information.

What LeftBehind.com Does (and Doesn't Do) with the Personal Information We Collect

General. Leftbehind.com uses personally identifiable information only for the purpose for which it is submitted unless we disclose other uses at the time of collection, in which case you will have the opportunity to instruct us not to use your data in other ways (i.e., "opt-out").

Sharing Personal Information. Leftbehind.com may share personally identifiable information with our affiliates or with some of our business partners who would like to send you information about their products or services. However, when we collect your information you will have the opportunity to instruct us not to share your information in these ways (i.e., opt-out").

Links/Co-Branded Sites

Leftbehind.com has established relationships with advertisers and reputable business associates that allow visitors to our Site to link directly to sites operated by them. Some of these sites may be "co-branded" with a leftbehind.com logo; however, they are not operated or maintained by leftbehind.com. These sites may collect personal information from you. This Privacy Policy will apply to any personal information we obtain in this manner from our advertisers and business associates.

Leftbehind.com chooses its advertisers and business associates carefully. However, leftbehind.com is not responsible for the content or practices of websites operated by third parties that are linked to our Site. These links are meant for the user's convenience only. Links to third party sites do not constitute sponsorship, endorsement or approval by leftbehind.com of the content, policies or practices of such third party sites. We are not responsible for any information these sites may obtain and do not oversee their policies or practices in collecting personal information. Therefore, once you have left this Site via such a link, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third party site.

This Site may also be linked to websites operated by companies affiliated with Tyndale. Leftbehind.com may share information collected by these affiliated companies; however, this Privacy Policy will apply to any personal information we receive in this manner. Visitors to these affiliated sites should still refer to their separate privacy policies and practices when providing any personally identifiable information.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

When visitors come to our Site, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which web pages were visited, the order in which they were visited, and which hyperlinks, if any, were "clicked" by the visitor. Leftbehind.com, like most major websites, collects such information by placing small bits of information, known as "cookies", on the hard drive of your computer to log IP addresses, operating system (e.g., Windows or Macintosh), type of browser software (e.g., Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer), and Internet service providers (e.g., AOL or NET.COM) used by each visitor to the Site.

Cookies enable us to do a number of things to make your visit and future visits to the site more enjoyable. For example, cookies allow a visitor to quickly log on to a site he/she has used before by storing a password. By tracking how many people visit our Site and where they go, we are able to determine which part of the Site users like the best, which part needs some improvement and what changes should be made. By obtaining this information, we are able to continually improve our Site and bring you the best online experience possible.

Although the cookie itself does not collect any personally identifiable information about a visitor, and leftbehind.com does not use cookies in order to obtain such information, the cookie can be used to determine the IP address of the visitor's Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity to the Internet. Leftbehind.com may also disclose some of the non-personally identifiable information we obtain to advertisers to inform them how many people have seen or linked to their advertisements on our Site. However, we do not disclose personally identifiable information to these advertisers. Visitors may also receive cookies from third parties, but leftbehind.com cannot control the content of these cookies.

Leftbehind.com does not save credit card information in a cookie.

You should consult your browser owner's manual for instructions on how to refuse cookies.

Reviewing and Making Changes to Personally Identifiable Information

If you would like to know the types of personal information leftbehind.com collects from visitors to the Site, please write to us at Christianity Today International, Attn: leftbehind.com, 465 Gundersen Drive, Carol Stream, IL 60188. If you would like to know whether we have collected personal information about you, please provide us with the activities that you participated in on the Site that requested personal information. After we have reviewed the relevant databases, we will confirm whether we have collected such information about you. Prior to changing or deleting such information, we require that you provide us with proof of your name and address, such as a valid driver's license. Once we have received such proof and determined that it is satisfactory, we will immediately delete or modify your information in our database and refrain from collecting any other personally identifiable information from you, if you so request. However, there may be residual information that will remain within our databases that may or may not contain personally identifiable information. This residual information will not be given to any other third party or used for any commercial purpose.
