Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Disciple.Tools collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Disciple.Tools’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Disciple.Tools’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Disciple.Tools may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Disciple.Tools also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Disciple.Tools does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Disciple.Tools choose to interact with Disciple.Tools in ways that require Disciple.Tools to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Disciple.Tools gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use the contact form to provide a name and email address.

In each case, Disciple.Tools collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Disciple.Tools. Disciple.Tools does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

All of the information that is collected on Disciple.Tools will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Disciple.Tools discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Disciple.Tools’s behalf or to provide services available through Disciple.Tools, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Disciple.Tools, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Disciple.Tools will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Disciple.Tools discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared.
