Cookies: Like many websites, we use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our web site such as searching and looking at public user profiles. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk. American Marriage Ministries may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our web site, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to improve our Services.

Your Consent: We may share or disclose your information with your consent, such as when you use a third party web client or application to access your American Marriage Ministries account.

We may share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to obligations mirroring the protections of this privacy policy.

Law and Harm: We may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect American Marriage Ministries’s rights or property.

Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as the number of users who clicked on a particular link (even if only one did).
