We may use this information to communicate with you by e-mail or post from time to time. Bethany House keeps all names, addresses, and all other personal information supplied by participants of the Bethany House web site strictly confidential. Please keep in mind, however, that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, e.g. on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas, that information may be collected and used by others. Some parts of our web sites may also use 'cookies,' which are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to your computer through your web browser. You may configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies or notify you when a cookie is sent. However if cookies are rejected, some pages on our web sites may not function properly.
