How Does (HWM) ensure privacy protections?
We collect, use and disclose personal information only for the purposes that a reasonable
person would consider appropriate for the administration and management of a church
Access to your personal information is on a “need to know” basis. We inform our church

We will maintain adequate physical, procedural and electronic security with respect to
