What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When comments are enabled on posts or pages and visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

If you contact us through our contact form, we ask for your name and email address. This information is stored so that we can respond to your request. It will only be accessed by an authorized representative of First Presbyterian Church of Marianna.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Online Giving

We use Sharefaith Giving for our online giving service, and the portal on our Give page is embedded from Sharefaith. Using this service requires a donor’s first and last name, billing zip/postal code (and country, if international donations are enabled on your account) along with their payment method. We also store the donor’s mobile phone number when they use Text Giving and give them the option of entering their email address. If a donor creates an account, they can login and manage their information and set up one-time or recurring gifts. If a donor logs in on the giving form, it will automatically retrieve their stored payment information so they won’t need to manually enter it. Immediately after their gift processes, they will see a receipt on their screen and if they provided an email, they will receive a copy in their inbox as well. If someone has a recurring gift, they’ll receive an email confirmation a week before it processes as well as a receipt after it processes.This information will be accessed by authorized representatives of First Presbyterian Church of Marianna and third-party processors, including Sharefaith Giving and Halo Pays, to process donations and compile donor giving reports. More information about Sharefaith Giving and their privacy policy is available at https://www.sharefaith.com. More information about Halo Pays and their privacy policy is available at https://halopays.com. Users may request to have a copy of their personally identifying information in the system, and they may request that this information be deleted from the system. 

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
