What we do with the information we gather

We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:



We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Your payment and personal information is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software today for secure ecommerce transactions.  It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.


Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Credit Card Security Statement

American Baptist Churches of Michigan uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the industry-standard security protocol that we use to communicate with secure browsers, so that all data that you transmit is strongly encrypted and communicates that you are doing business with American Baptist Churches of Michigan. When communicating with a secure server like ours, these browsers encrypt the information you send in a way that is extremely difficult for anyone else to decode. You should also look for a visual image, generally a lock that indicates you are on a secure section of the site.

All SSL-capable browsers have a symbol to indicate the secure mode and you will know when you're in a secure area because the URL to the left of the colon changes from "http" to "https" to signify that a SSL protocol is being used to communicate with the server. (http means HyperText Transport Protocol; https means HTTP with SSL).  The part of the American Baptist Churches of Michigan website that has extra security is the payment area. This is where you actually pay for services from our site. The entire checkout process takes place in a secure environment using Authorize.net through Heartland Payment Systems. However, you may contact us by phone Monday through Friday (except holidays) during business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time) or by fax with your credit card information. You may also contact us by email but please do not include your credit card information in the message; we will call you to complete the transaction.

Please remember that you play a valuable part in security as well. Your password to access your account should never be shared with anyone and should be changed frequently. After you are finished using our site, you should log off and exit your browser so no unauthorized persons can use the site with your name and your ABC-MI website account information. Furthermore, if you provide any information to parties who operate websites that are linked to or from our site, different rules may apply to their collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information. We encourage you to review these sites' policies before revealing any sensitive or personal information.

If you have any additional questions don't hesitate to contact us by phone (800.632.2953), fax (517.332.3594), or office@abc-mi.org.
