Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting a website of the Black Christian News Network (BCNN1.com). Protecting your privacy is very important to us. To assure you of your privacy, we provide this notice to help you understand our commitment to security, what kinds of information we may gather about you when you visit the site, how we may use that information, and how you can correct that information.

Our Commitment to Security

Safeguards
We have appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in place in our physical facilities to help protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of any information you may have provided at our site. We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site. 

E-mail Addresses
When you provide BCNN1 with your e-mail address, we will use it only for the purpose for which it was provided. We do not rent, sell, or exchange your e-mail address with any third party except to provide the services you request or as set forth in the "Other Entities" section below.

Information We Collect

Automatically Collected Anonymous Information
When you visit the BCNN1 website, certain anonymous information about your visit is automatically logged as it is at most websites, which may include information about your IP address, domain name, browser type, access time, and referring website address. This information is not personally identifiable and is only used in an aggregate manner (not in any way that personally identifies you).

Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information is any information about you as an individual that would enable someone to contact you; for example, your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address.

BCNN1 will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it. Providing any personally identifiable information to BCNN1 is voluntary. If you do not want BCNN1 to obtain any personally identifiable information about you, do not submit it.

How We Use This Information

We will use your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated information may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.

Personally identifiable information will be used for the purposes for which it was given. We also may use it to notify you about updates to our website and to contact you for marketing purposes.

You can visit and browse BCNN1's websites without revealing personally identifiable information about yourself. You may also choose to disclose personally identifiable information about yourself for the purposes described below.

E-mail Newsletters
When you request the BCNN1 Dailyline, we will collect and store your e-mail address to provide you with the requested daily e-mail. We may also send you occasional special offers and information from BCNN1 and our sister companies that we think would be of interest to you. You may change your subscribed e-mail address, opt-out of receiving special e-mailed offers, or remove yourself from any mailing list by following the instructions contained at the bottom of every daily e-mail. We do not rent, sell, or exchange your e-mail address with any third party except to provide the services you request or as set forth in the "Other Entities" section below.

Other Services
BCNN1 offers free services such as "e-mail this page" as well as other social bookmarking features. A third party organization collects the page that is recommended via the services for reporting reasons. 

Other Entities
Companies that are independent from BCNN1 operate many of the online areas that you may visit via links from BCNN1.com. Although BCNN1 will seek to require that these independent companies (e.g., information and paid subscription service providers, advertisers, merchants, etc) adhere to our strong privacy principles, BCNN1 does not bear responsibility for their policies or actions. Please read their unique site privacy policies.

In the event of a sale, merger, assignment, joint venture or other transfer or disposition of a portion or all of the assets of BCNN1 (including, without limitation, in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings), information you have provided may be transferred as part of the business assets but will remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, you consent otherwise).

BCNN1 reserves the right to cooperate with law enforcement officials in the investigation of alleged unlawful activities of our website visitors related to electronic communication transmitted on our site. BCNN1 will have no legal liability for such disclosures.

Cookies
Cookies are a technology that help us serve you better. Our cookies collect no personally identifiable information. We use cookies to help us know when and how many people visit our site, to store your personal preferences in order to provide you with the best experience possible and to record session information.
