Use of Server Logs

Broadway Baptist Church's web servers log the standard information about website users including the IP address of the user, domain of the user, URLs visited, and the date/time visited. We use this information to generate aggregate reports which summarize our website traffic, which we use to improve our site and its usability for our visitors. We do not attempt to track individual users and we do not link the web log information to any other database with the purpose of identifying individual website users.


In order to fully use this website, a user must be a member of Broadway Baptist Church. The members who wish to fully use this web site must first fill out a registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and e-mail address). This information is used to verify that the user is a member of Broadway Baptist Church. The user MUST use their real name, as this is one way we identify the user in our database. We also will collect other information (such as date of birth and gender) for the sole purpose of tailoring the information on this site to the particular member.

Use of Cookies

Broadway Baptist Church's website makes use of "cookies" in order to identify user sessions and maintain information within sessions. We use two kinds of cookies: first, a limited duration (24 hour) cookie that allows us to keep track of user information within the session to identify privileges and preferences of the user; this type of cookie is used, for example, when users register in order to gain access to public use data files and then log in to use or download the data. Second, our e-commerce site uses cookies to identify customers when they re-visit our site, so they do not have to re-register as customers, and also to maintain user identification as users add to their "shopping carts" and check out. We do not use cookie information to identify users in any way except as noted above, nor do we use the information given by users and stored in the cookies to link to any other data.

Note: If one were to visit the Broadway Baptist Church online Resource Store with cookies disabled, one would not be able to purchase resources or papers on the site. Also, one would not be able to register and use public use data files on the main site.

Web Bugs

Broadway Baptist Church does not may make use of "Web bugs" (programs installed on your personal computer by a website to track personal web usage) in any way, shape, or form.
