THE WAY and Privacy
Because your privacy is important to us, THE WAY operates by these principles:
THE WAY Web site (“Site”) is maintained by THE WAY INTERNATIONAL, P.O. Box 328, New Knoxville, Ohio 45871.
THE WAY will occasionally update this privacy statement. When THE WAY posts changes to this statement, you will see the word “updated” next to the Terms, Conditions, and Privacy link on the front page of theway.org. If there are material changes to this statement or in how THE WAY will use your personally identifiable information, THE WAY will prominently post such changes prior to implementing the change. THE WAY encourages you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how THE WAY is protecting your information. We explicitly ask when we need information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). For example, THE WAY may ask you for your name and e-mail address if you wish to receive a response from THE WAY, and we also may request that you provide Personal Information as part of registration for a seminar or other event sponsored by THE WAY and which you desire to attend. We do not use your Personal Information to operate THE WAY. We may occasionally inform you of new features, services, and products from THE WAY. We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information, although it will enable the Site to relate your use of the Site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to the Site.
THE WAY Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons—sometimes called single-pixel GIFs—that allow THE WAY to count users who have visited those pages. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about THE WAY Web site usage.
Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. THE WAY Web pages may also contain Web beacons placed there to help THE WAY determine the effectiveness of our Internet campaigns. THE WAY may occasionally contact you about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, THE WAY does not share your personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) with any third party without your permission.
If at any time you believe this Site has not adhered to these principles, or if you have questions about this policy, please write to us at the address above.
This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Ohio without giving effect to any principles or conflicts of law. If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
