Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. That’s one of the reasons TheGospelHall.net was developed – many assemblies are using Facebook or other “open” social networks for communicating their activities, and our exercise was to move much of this communication away from the public Internet, and behind the login of a “private” site. Autonomy of local assemblies is also important to us, so to restrict access to our site to believers gathered to the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we included a “verification” process that requires new members to be verified by 3 other members before they have access.

This Privacy Policy describes the information collected at TheGospelHall.net, and how it is shared-

  1. Your Profile Information – this information about you is collected from you as part of the registration process, and on your Profile page.
    1. Name, Profile Picture, Gospel Hall and Role - these are shared with other members of TheGospelHall.net at various places-
      1. If another member chooses Explore>your Gospel Hall, the search results include names and pictures and roles of members (not email, phone number, etc.).
      2. If another member chooses Explore>People, the search results include name, profile picture, role and Gospel Hall.
    2. Email, Gender, Zip, Mobile Phone – these are only shared with members of your Gospel Hall. Members of other Gospel Halls can Explore >your Gospel Hall, but will only see names and profile pictures. One exception is messaging – if you initiate a message to a member of another gospel hall, your email address will be shared with that member, allowing them to respond directly to you if they so choose.
  2. Your usage information – we receive information from or about the computer, mobile phone, or other devices you use to install our Services. This may include network and communication information, such as your IP address or mobile phone number, and other information about things like your internet service, operating system, location, the type (including identifiers) of the device or browser you use, or the pages you visit. This information is not distributed by us, but may be used for additional security or enhancing how we deliver our Services to you.
  3. Information you post or share – when you choose to post information (e.g., prayer request, Help wanted, Free stuff, Share stuff, Downloads, etc.), we share it within TheGospelHall.net according to any permissions you set-
    1. My Gospel Hall – shared with other members of my gospel hall only. This is not accessible by members of other gospel halls.
    2. theGospelHall.net – shared to all members of TheGospelHall.net, which means believers in my gospel hall as well as other gospel halls.
    3. Public – available to anyone on the Internet. An example of this content is the directory listing page for your gospel hall – this is publicly accessible so anybody on the Internet can find the location, and public information (what we believe, about us, etc.)

Information security – We work hard to protect theGospelHall.net and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. We encrypt many of our Services using SSL, and we review our information collection, storage and processing practices, to guard against unauthorized access to systems. We restrict access to personal information to Opalhaven employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
