Privacy Policy

The Riverside Church places a high priority on protecting your privacy. You can visit our web site without revealing any personal information. Should you choose to provide us with any personal information, you can be assured that it will only be used by us to conduct official church business and will not be shared.

Personal Information

Members and guests who sign up to receive The Riverside Church email communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.

Information Use

We use your personal information to send email alerts to you; to answer your requests; to process your contributions; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitor usage of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our community’s needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.

Email Privacy

The Riverside Church does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization, without your permission.

External Links

The Riverside Church occasionally includes links to external websites. These links do not fall under Riverside’s domain, and Riverside is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites. Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk.


We may amend this privacy policy from time to time; please review it periodically. We maintain the option to modify this privacy at any time by electronic notice posted on our website. Your continued use of our website after the date that such notices are posted will be deemed to be your agreement to the changed terms.
