POLICY

At In Touch Ministries [ITM], our mission is to lead people worldwide into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and to strengthen the local church.

ITM is a Christian ministry, organized as a Georgia non-profit corporation. The success of our mission requires that we daily earn your trust, by doing our utmost to preserve your privacy and the security of your personal information, and by clearly informing you of how we use your information. Thank you for taking the time to review the statements that follow.

We continuously review our policies, procedures, and systems to make sure that we conform to the highest standards of information security, end-user transparency, and informed consent. This privacy policy may therefore change from time to time as circumstances warrant. When our privacy policy changes, the revised policy will be posted here.

INFORMATION SECURITY AT ITM

ITM is committed to preserving the security of all information in our custody. Our information systems are maintained in physically secured, access-controlled data centers. All data are protected through a multi-layered approach at the network, storage, server, and applications levels, with data access rigorously controlled and limited to trained employees on a need-to-know basis.
