Privacy Policy

As the provider hosting your Organization’s online services, ParishSOFT LLC (ParishSOFT) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information that you and your Organization have given us. This statement explains ParishSOFT’s policies and practices regarding our use and disclosure of your personal information.

Even though your use of the software, website, and services (“the Software”) indicates your acceptance of the ParishSOFT Privacy Policy, please review the details of this Policy carefully. Note that we review and update this Privacy Policy as needed without notice. Therefore, you should revisit the terms of this policy periodically to make sure that you are aware of any changes in the way ParishSOFT collects and uses your personal information. By using the Software, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information by ParishSOFT as explained below.

Terms defined in ParishSOFT’s Terms of Use have the same meaning in this Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

Your Organization is the sole owner of the information collected via the Software provided by ParishSOFT. We furnish you with the application, forms, and programs to collect and manage this information. In turn, ParishSOFT uses collected information to provide or improve the Software, and in additional ways more specifically described below.

ParishSOFT collects personally identifiable information at several points when your Organization chooses us as a service provider: when you upload this information to the Software, when you register for an account, and when you use certain ParishSOFT Software. ParishSOFT may also receive personally identifiable information about you from our business partners.

The information ParishSOFT receives when your Organization uploads information includes but is not limited to your name, address, phone number, and email address. Once you register for an account and sign in to our services, you are no longer anonymous to us, and we receive and record information about your browser that includes IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.

Financial Transaction Information.  ParishSOFT does not accept or store any credit card information or bank account information. We use a third party intermediary to perform any financial information collection and transaction processing. If you, as a User, perform a financial transaction with us or our intermediary, the intermediary must request information from you. This information includes but is not limited to credit card information or bank account information.

Our intermediary is solely a link in the distribution chain and uses the information provided for the sole purpose of processing the transaction. We recommend that Users read the Privacy Policy of this intermediary, which can be found on the payment page of our Software.

Cookies.  ParishSOFT uses "cookies". Cookies are computer files containing limited amounts of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Generally, cookies work by assigning to your computer a unique number that has no meaning outside of the Software. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information; we use them to provide features such as personalization, and to save your user ID and password after you have entered a session so that you do not have to re-enter it repeatedly during that session. A cookie cannot read data off of your hard drive or read cookie files created by other sites. Information stored in cookies may be encrypted; however, we do not store your credit card number in cookies. While most web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually change your browser setting to prevent it. Keep in mind that not accepting cookies may make certain features of the Software unavailable to you.

INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

ParishSOFT does not sell, rent, or trade personally identifiable information about you to third parties, except as noted below. We will not disclose any collected information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

ParishSOFT may send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or people when:
  1. We have your consent to share the information;
  2. We need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested;
  3. We need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of ParishSOFT to provide a product or service to you. Unless we tell you differently, these companies do not have any right to use the personally identifiable information we provide to them beyond what is necessary or appropriate, in our judgment, to assist us in providing your product or service;
  4. We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal processes; or
  5. We find that your actions using the Software violate the ParishSOFT Terms of Use or any of our usage guidelines for specific services.
We may share aggregate demographic information with our customers, business partners, and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual or organization.

Links. The Software may contain links to third party Sites. Even if the third party is affiliated with ParishSOFT through a business partnership or otherwise, ParishSOFT is not responsible for the privacy policies, practices or content of such external links. We encourage our Users to be aware when they leave the Software and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information. Our Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by ParishSOFT’s Software.

ParishSOFT uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect your data transmissions of financial and personally identifiable information.
