Privacy Policy


What does the Virginia United Methodist Foundation and its subsidiaries do with your personal information? The type of personal information we collect and share depends on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:

  • information we receive from you on forms, newsletter signups, account logins, and applications
  • information about your transaction with us
  • information we receive from the Virginia Annual Conference or other third parties and affiliates
  • information we need to fulfill our obligations to you


In general, we use the personal information we collect to pursue our mission, perform operations and to engage in the activity (and related activities) for which we collect it. Specifically, we may use your personal information to:

  • to fulfill our obligations to you and to respond to any questions or requests;
  • to contact you about material changes in our site terms or policies;
  • to comply with the law or in good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform
    with the requirements of law or to comply with legal process served on us;
  • to provide to third parties as a result of any reorganization or operational process;
  • if you sign up for a blog, feed or newsletter, we may put you on our mailing list or even the
    list of a Third Party who we think has a similar mission.

The Foundation works with Third Parties on certain programs, and often those Third Parties own and/or are responsible for that program’s Web site. In those cases, if you provide personal information, you will be giving it to a third party and their privacy policy will apply. You agree that if they provide it to us then we may apply our Policy to what we receive.
