Privacy Policy

General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM) values your support and has created this policy, which details our information gathering and dissemination practices, to demonstrate our organization's commitment to protecting your privacy. This policy may be updated from time to time, so please check back periodically.

If you make a donation or place an order, you may provide contact information (like name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiration date). All credit card information is handled in a highly secure manner and is not retained beyond the time of credit card processing. Your contact information is used to send you requested materials or a donation receipt (if you have made a donation), and to keep you informed about our program work. If we have trouble processing an order or donation, this contact information may also be used to get in touch with you.

Our policy is to protect the privacy of our supporters by not renting or selling any personal information; we do not share, rent, or sell email addresses. GBGM may occasionally share our mailing lists with other agencies of the United Methodist Church. If you do not want us to share this information you may call us at any time at 1-212.870.3600, or e-mail us at , to let us know.

The GBGM website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Any forms submitted online that contain personal financial information are submitted via a secure server.

The data housed at GBGM is on secure servers that are not accessible via the Internet. These computers are protected by extensive network security with very limited access by select personnel charged with protecting the privacy of your records.
