Disclaimer of Damages

By using the Lifesong Church website, you assume all risks associated with the use of the site, including any risk to your computer, software or data being damaged by any virus, software, or any other file that might be transmitted or activated via a Lifesong Church website or your access to it. The church is not liable for any damages of any kind (general, special, incidental or consequential damages, including without limitation, lost revenues or lost profits) resulting from the use or misuse of the information contained in the church website.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission United States’ consumer protection agency enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Third-Party Websites

Our website may contain links to third-party websites, and third-party websites may also have links to our website.

Our privacy policy does not apply to external links or other websites. We make no representations of the privacy practices of external third-party links by including them on our website. The operators of other websites may collect your personal information. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
