This website is intended to provide news and information about ELCS. We will make all reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of content.

Information Collection and Use
ELCS does not track, collect or distribute personal information about site visitors. However, we do collect some information about site visits. We have access to domain names and IP addresses of visitors. We compile statistics that show the number of visitors and the number of requests we receive for particular pages or files on the site. These statistics are used internally to evaluate and improve the site. The statistics contain no personal information (or email addresses) and cannot be used to gather such information.
ELCS parents and church members are provided access to specific password-protected areas of our website, which may contain personally identifiable information, such as contact information for other ELCS members, parents or families.
Email Privacy and Spam
ELCS is committed to protecting the privacy of our students and their families. We do not post the full names of students on the public pages of our website. Images of students are used on the public pages of the site; however, students are never identified by name in images. Within the password-protected pages of the site, use of students' full names is allowed and students can also be identified by full name in images.
Online Giving and Other Transactions
We are committed to the privacy of all our donors and to those making any kind of transaction via the ELCS website. Should you decide to make an online donation or purchase, you will be asked to provide your name, contact information and credit card billing information. All of this information is encrypted using SSL, an industry standard secure technology designed to prevent the theft or interception of the information you provide. Credit card billing information is used only to obtain payment from the appropriate credit card firm and to fulfill the donor's or purchaser's request, and is not stored or otherwise retained by ELCS after the transaction is complete.
This site may contain links to other (external) sites. ELCS is not responsible for the privacy policies or content provided by these sites.
Using Google Analytics and HubSpot we collect some anonymous information about how you use the site by setting and accessing cookies on your computer.
