Privacy Policy

Here at Equipping Godly Women, your privacy and trust are very important to us. While we do track some basic information about you and your browsing behavior while on this site, you can rest assured that we collect this information only to analyze site performance, provide you with a better user experience, serve ads that are relevant to your needs, and help us make better content decisions going forward.

We only work with third-party providers we trust to keep all our data safe, and we never, ever sell any of your personal information.

 

How we collect information and the types of information we collect: 

  • Google Analytics: Google Analytics is a popular web analytics service we use to track general trends in traffic and website performance. It provides us with lots of great analytics information we use to create a site you’ll love, such as which posts are receiving the most traffic and where our traffic is coming from. While this does put a cookie on your computer, it does not store ANY personally identifying information about you. Just overall trends that can’t be tied to a certain user. If you are not comfortable with Google collecting demographic information about you, Google does provide the option to opt-out of Google tracking here.
  • Facebook Pixel: Equipping Godly Women also uses the Facebook pixel so we can show you Facebook and/or Instagram ads about new products, services, or freebies we think you’ll be interested in. This also places a cookie on your computer, but it doesn’t give us any personally identifying information about you. We may also upload your name and email to Facebook to reach you with ads. You can learn more about Facebook tracking, adjust your preferences or opt-out altogether in your Facebook ad preferences.
  • Email Sign-Ups: If you choose to sign up by email, we will have access to your IP address along with other information you provide, such as your name, email, and what forms you opted into. We also “tag” users based on the links you click in order to provide emails that are customized to your preference. For example, you have the option to opt out of parenting emails and certain promotions. Unsubscribing does not delete your info from our system, but we would be happy to delete your info from our email service provider upon request.
  • Comment Boxes, Giveaways and Surveys: If you choose to leave a comment on this site, enter a giveaway or answer a survey, we only collect basic information such as your IP address and/or browser information, plus any information you provide. We use this information to serve you better (by answering your questions in comment boxes or writing content around the most common survey answers, for example).
  • Product Purchases:  We store only basic information as needed to complete your transaction, including but not limited to your name, email address, physical address (if provided), IP address and purchase details.
  • Ads. Some of the ads we run may collect non-personal information, such as IP address and websites viewed. You can block all third-party cookies in your browser settings. However, this is likely to negatively impact your user experience across the web as a whole.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, you’d like a complete list of the data we have for you, you’d like to opt out, or if you would like us to erase all of your data in our systems, please email us at [email protected] and let us know how we can help.
