ATR News (“ATR”) is committed to respecting your online privacy and security. We have designed our website at www.atrnewsonline.com so that in general, you can visit us online without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. We will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis. If you choose to provide us with personal information, (such as your name, age, date of birth, mailing address, phone number, email address, credit card number) to sign up for a newsletter, participate in a contest, make a donation, participate in forums, blogs or bulletin boards, you can be assured that it will only be used to support your relationship with ATR, that we have taken appropriate steps to protect it, and that, except as described below, ATR will not willfully disclose your personal information to any third party without first receiving your permission. At the time you are asked to provide personal information we will explain the extent of its use. If you do not want this information to be collected or used by us for these purposes, you can simply “opt out.” However, normally opting out may prevent your participation in activities for which personal information is needed, as in contests.
2. Child Protection
ATR News is particularly sensitive about guarding the privacy of children. ATR does not collect any more information than is needed from children under the age of 13 for use of our website. ATR does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent except as noted below.
We will seek your consent before collecting personal information from your child. (However, we will not seek your consent where a child has merely subscribed to our email newsletter or text message updates.)
If you do not want your child’s personal information used by ATR or if you would like to find out what personal information we have from or about your child, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Information We Collect and How it is Used
The types of information we collect on our website include:
Information we actively collect:
Your name and email address, age and/or DOB, mailing address, phone number, job title, and company, may be requested to receive newsletters and/or to participate in contests or promotions, or research panels, and in the case of online donations, credit card information and expiration date. This information is used to respond to your questions to us, for contests, promotions, and research panels, and to complete transactions such as credit card donations and signing up for email newsletters or mass email notifications.
Non-personal Information — collected passively:
The information passively collected by the our website is what Internet browser and/or plug-ins you use, your operating system version, and your public IP address. We do not use tracking cookies or collect any other information about you, or your computer.
4. No Sharing of Personal Information
ATR News will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to others. Except as stated below, ATR will not intentionally provide your personal information to any third party except: (i) when we have your permission to share your information (including to complete a credit card transaction in which case we will only use companies who employ similar privacy protections to secure your personal information), (ii) when we are required by law to do so or in the event of legal action arising from information posted by you, or (iii) in the event of exigent circumstances, such as when there are reasons to believe, based on information posted by you, that there is risk of harm to yourself or to another. Your data may also be provided to the following third party vendors: WordPress.com, Square.com, VeriSign, GoDaddy.com, Mail Chimp, and ATR’s in-house which provide support for ATR’s web hosting, credit card processing, communications, and other inter-office operations. With your permission, at times ATR may also provide your information to third parties to provide you with announcements and promotional information which may be of interest to you.
5. Security of Your Personal Information
ATR is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and prevent improper use, we have implemented strict physical, technological, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure your personal information we collect online. We use industry standard encryption software when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. For information about the security policies of third party vendors used by ATR as listed in Section 4 above, please contact directly the vendors listed above.
6. Contacting Apostles That Rock/Removing Your Name From Our Mailing List

If you no longer want to receive emails or newsletters, please send us an email at email@example.com with the subject “REMOVE FROM MAILING LIST.” If you have questions or comments about this Policy, our use of your personal information, would like to verify the accuracy of our records containing your personal information, or feel that this site is not following the policies we have described here, please contact us. We will make every reasonable effort to address and correct the problem.
