Website Privacy Policy
We value your concerns about privacy. We do not collect personal data on users of our website unless you specifically choose to disclose data by use of a web form, e-mail, or other means. Any personal information you provide to us will not be sold, loaned, leased, traded, shared, or provided to third parties except for e-newsletter services contracted with an outside vendor, or when necessary for co-sponsors of Benedictine Sisters Retreat Center events or other Community events or services. We will contractually require that e-services vendors adhere to our privacy policies, although we cannot control the compliance of a third party.

Information voluntarily disclosed to us such as prayer requests or general comments directed to the Sisters may be posted at designated, non-public locations within Sacred Heart Monastery. When appropriate, information voluntarily disclosed may be shared with designated employees of the Benedictine Sisters when required for the performance of their duties. Examples would include retreat or event registration, requests for information, and other business- or ministry-related functions.

Information voluntarily disclosed to us for the purposes of retreat or event registration may be shared with co-sponsors of the event. Participant names and contact information (including e-mail addresses) may be shared with other participants in that event.

If you supply us with your e-mail address, whether on the web or by other means, you may receive e-newsletters or electronic announcements from us. If you wish to be removed from our mailing list, simply notify us.

We use commonly-available analytic tools to collect aggregate data on the utilization of our website.
