This policy is for this website [tribenet.org] and served by Tribenet.org on behalf of ReKnew and governs the privacy of its users who choose to use it.
TribeNet.org is GDPR Compliant. The policy sets out the different areas where user privacy is concerned and outlines the obligations & requirements of the users, the website and website owners. Furthermore the way this website processes, stores and protects user data and information will also be detailed within this policy.
By signing up for membership on this website, you are agreeing to these terms and policies.
This website makes use of a membership system which allows members to find like-minded individuals in their area. As such, when you sign up for membership, this website will collect your name, and any other information you choose to share in your profile (such as social media links, personal bio, profile pictures). Your username, first name and last name may be publicly visible to other users unless you take steps to hide your profile (or alter your name). To hide your profile, visit Account Settings > Privacy and adjust your settings.
You own all of the content and information you post on TribeNet, and you can control whether it is shared through your privacy settings. In addition, when you create an account and keep your profile public, or add a church to the map, it means that you are allowing everyone, potentially including people who are not members of TribeNet, to access and use the information you post, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).
Registration and Account Security
Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:
In compliance with GDPR regulations, you have the right to see what information we currently have about you in our system — just email the webmaster. You can also ask us to update that information or delete it altogether.
If desired, you can terminate your account on this website at any time by going to Accounts > Delete Account. You may also delete your membership by contacting us and we will do so on your behalf. When you delete your account, ALL of your personal information, search alerts, church/small group on our map, and uploaded profile photos will be permanently deleted from our system. This is irreversible.
Note that when you delete your account or personal info associated with your profile, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. You understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
ReKnew also withholds the right to terminate anyone’s membership, or the TribeNet website itself, at any time without notice or cause. Therefore you should not rely on our website to store any information which you desire to keep, that is not backed up elsewhere.
