´Personal information´ is personally identifiable information such as your name, residential address, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address and instant messenger nickname that would allow someone to identify you or contact you. Publicly available information, such as a public directory listing of your name, address, telephone number and electronic address, is not considered personal information.
Collection and Use of Personal Information:
At the GospelCity.com site, you may enter contests, vote in polls, subscribe to our online newsletters, order products or services or participate in one of our online forums or communities. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected include: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services.
Personal information is collected by GospelCity only when you specifically and knowingly choose to provide it us such as when you enter a GospelCity promotion or contest or choose to receive information, products or services from us. We collect this and other information, including credit and billing information, to fill your order, to communicate with you about your order and to send you materials about our products, programs or services. We may also receive personal information from our business partners and other third parties provided that such third parties confirm to us that they have obtained your consent to the disclosure of your personal information. GospelCity collects personally identifiable information about you when you visit the site and input information, whether you are registering to participate in promotions or contests, signing up for features such as message boards and online forums, ordering or purchasing products or services, subscribing to newsletters, communicating with us to exchange information, or in connection with other transactions or activities.

It also helps us help you learn more about your preferences and those goods and services that may be of interest to you, including products, which may be available from GospelCity, its suppliers and advertisers.
