This policy describes how we collect, use, disclose, and protect the personal information of our parishioners, guests and website users ("you"), describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the website kingdomcity.ca (our "website"), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

We will only use your personal information in accordance with this policy unless otherwise required by applicable law. We take steps to ensure that the personal information that we collect about you is adequate, relevant, not excessive, and used for limited purposes.

Privacy laws in Canada generally define "personal information" as any information about an identifiable individual, which includes information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person.

We do not control these third-party websites, and we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.
