How Information is Collected

Developing Global Leaders is an initiative of Young Life. On some Young Life web pages or websites (including all Young Life local, regional, divisional, international, camp websites, the Young Life Staff Resources Site and this Developing Global Leaders website, which are hereinafter referred to as "the Young Life network"), you may be asked to provide certain personal information for ministry-related purposes or to make ministry contributions. We do not collect personal information without your knowledge; however, we do allow you to provide personal information that will help us serve your request (for instance, you can give feedback or make donations on the Young Life network). We will only ask for the information that will help us facilitate your request. When you provide any such information, you are acknowledging your consent to our use of such information to better serve you and others visiting the Young Life network.

How Information is Used

Young Life uses information you provide to better serve your requests. We do not sell, lease or rent your confidential information to others.

To safeguard and secure the information we collect online, Young Life has applied appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to prevent unauthorized access and maintain data accuracy. Internet encryption software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, is utilized to protect sensitive data transmissions with credit card information. The padlock icon in the bottom of your browser's window or a blue line around the window signifies that a site is secure. Sometimes password protection is used to protect your privacy and security.
