Privacy and Terms
DIGITAL MINISTRY’S PROMISE
Our mission to help build a better Internet is rooted in the importance we place on establishing trust with our Customers, users, and the Internet community globally. To earn and maintain that trust, we commit to communicating transparently, providing security, and protecting the privacy of data on our systems.
We keep your personal information personal and private. We will not sell or rent your personal information to anyone. We will not share or otherwise disclose your personal information except as necessary to provide our Services or as otherwise described in this Policy without first providing you with notice and the opportunity to consent.
1. POLICY APPLICATION.
This Policy applies to DIGITAL MINISTRY’s collection, use, and disclosure of the information of the following categories of data subjects:
Attendees: Those who provide their information to DIGITAL MINISTRY or DIGITAL MINISTRY representatives when they attend or register to attend DIGITAL MINISTRY-sponsored events or other events at which DIGITAL MINISTRY participates.
Website Visitors: Those who visit our Websites and who may opt to provide an email address to receive communications from DIGITAL MINISTRY. For the purposes of this Policy, “Websites” shall refer collectively to rogigs.net as well as any other websites DIGITAL MINISTRY owns and that link to this Policy. For clarity, “Website” does not include any sites owned or operated by our Customers, including where we serve as Registrar.
Customers: Those who register on their own or on behalf of an entity or organization to use any of the DIGITAL MINISTRY Services (as defined below), including administrators on a Customer account. For the purposes of this Policy, “Services” shall refer to all of the cloud-based solutions offered, marketed or sold by DIGITAL MINISTRY or its authorized partners that are designed to increase the performance, security and availability of Internet properties, applications and networks, along with any software, software development kits and application programming interfaces (“APIs”) made available in connection with the foregoing.
End Users: Those who access or use our Customers’ domains, websites, application programming interfaces, mobile applications, Internet connected devices and whose information we process in order to provide the Services to our Customers pursuant to our agreements with them.
This Policy also does not apply to our Customers’ domains, websites, APIs, mobile applications, and networks, which may have their own terms and privacy policies. Our Customers are solely responsible for establishing policies for and ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including those relating to the collection of personal information, in connection with the use of our Services by End Users with whom our Customers interact.
DIGITAL MINISTRY’s Websites and Services are not intended for, nor designed to attract, individuals under the age of eighteen. DIGITAL MINISTRY does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from any person under the age of eighteen.
2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT (Categories of Data Subjects).
We may ask for and collect personal information such as your name, address, phone number and email address when you register for or attend a sponsored event or other events at which DIGITAL MINISTRY (and/or its representatives) participates.
Name, email address, and other contact information. We ask for and—at your option—collect personal information from you when you submit web forms on our Websites, including opportunities to sign up for and agree to receive email communications from us. We also may ask you to submit such personal information if you choose to use interactive features of the Websites, including participation in surveys, contests, promotions, sweepstakes, requesting customer support, or otherwise communicating with us. We will send such communications in accordance with applicable law.
Log Files. Just as when you visit and interact with most websites and services delivered via the Internet, when you visit our Websites, including the DIGITAL MINISTRY Community Forum, we gather certain information and store it in log files. This information may include but is not limited to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, system configuration information, URLs of referring pages, and locale and language preferences.
Interactive Areas. The Websites may offer publicly accessible blogs, community forums, comments sections, discussion forums, or other interactive features (“Interactive Areas”). If you choose to participate in any of these Interactive Areas, please be aware that any information that you post in an Interactive Area might be read, collected, and used by others who access it. If you wish to remove your personal information from any of our Interactive Areas, please see the Section 8, below.
Customer Account Information. When you register for a DIGITAL MINISTRY account, we collect your email address. We will also ask you to enter your website domain in order to participate in the Services. In addition, when you have a domain and use the Services, we collect information about how you configure your account and the Services for your domain(s) (e.g., firewall settings), and we maintain logs of administrator activity on your domain(s). We refer to all of this information collectively as “Customer Account Information” for the purposes of this Policy. Customer Account Information is required to identify you as a Customer and permit you to access your account(s). By voluntarily providing us with such Customer Account Information, you represent that you are the owner of such personal data or otherwise have the requisite consent to provide it to us.
Payment Information. You are not required to enter your payment information unless and until you decide to continue with a paid subscription to our Services. When you sign up for one of our paid Services, you must provide payment and billing information. The information you will need to submit depends on which payment method you choose. For example, if you pay with a credit card, we will collect your card information and billing address, although we do not store full credit card numbers or personal account numbers.
DIGITAL MINISTRY processes End Users’ information on behalf of our Customers when End Users use our Customers’ domains, websites, APIs, mobile applications, Internet connected devices, and networks.
DIGITAL MINISTRY also stores server and network activity data, and observations and analyses derived from traffic data collected by DIGITAL MINISTRY in the course of providing the Services (together, “Operational Metrics”). Examples of Operational Metrics include service uptime and service availability metrics, request volumes, error rates, cache rates, and IP threat scores.

If you are an individual from the European Economic Area (the “EEA”), the United Kingdom or Switzerland, please note that our legal basis for collecting and using your personal information will depend on the personal information collected and the specific context in which we collect it.

Please note that in most cases, if you do not provide the requested information, DIGITAL MINISTRY will not be able to provide the requested service to you.
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you, or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person. Where we rely on your consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw or decline consent at any time. Where we rely on our legitimate interests to process your personal data, you have the right to object.
If you have any questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us at email@example.com.
6. INFORMATION SHARING.
Specifically, we do not permit our Service Providers to sell any personal information we share with them or to use any personal information we share with them for their own marketing purposes or for any purpose other than in connection with the services they provide to us.

7. INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION TRANSFERS.
DIGITAL MINISTRY is a Philippine-based, global company. We primarily store your information in Asian territory. To facilitate our global operations, we may transfer and access such information from around the world, including from other countries in which the DIGITAL MINISTRY Group has operations for the purposes described in this Policy.
Whenever DIGITAL MINISTRY shares personal information originating in the EEA, the United Kingdom or Switzerland with a DIGITAL MINISTRY entity outside the EEA, the United Kingdom or Switzerland, it will do so on the basis of the EU standard contractual clauses (adjusted to address transfers from the United Kingdom) or the Privacy Shield Frameworks detailed in this section.
If you are accessing or using our Websites or Services or otherwise providing information to us, you are agreeing to the transfer of your personal information to the United States and other jurisdictions in which we operate.
8. DATA SUBJECT RIGHTS AND CHOICES.
Attendees, Website Visitors, Customers, and Registrants: You have the right to access, correct, update, export, or delete your personal information. You may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any such subject access requests (“SAR”), and we will respond within thirty (30) days. Customers also can access, correct, export, or update their Account Information by editing their profile or organization record at DIGITAL MINISTRY.com.
End Users: DIGITAL MINISTRY has no direct relationship with End Users. Even where “DIGITAL MINISTRY” may be indicated as the authoritative name server for a domain, unless DIGITAL MINISTRY is the owner of that domain, we have no control over a domain’s content. Accordingly, we rely upon our Customers to comply with the underlying legal requirements for subject access requests. If an End User requests that we access, correct, update, or delete their information, or no longer wishes to be contacted by one of our Customers that use our Services, we will direct that End User to contact the Customer website(s) with which they interacted directly. Our Customers are solely responsible for ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations with respect to their website users.
For any SAR, we will need to verify a requestor is inquiring about their own information before we can assist. Where a SAR may implicate the personal data of another individual, we must balance the request against the risk of violating another person’s privacy rights. We will comply with SARs to the extent required by applicable law or the US-Swiss or US-EU Privacy Shield. In the EEA, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

DIGITAL MINISTRY will send you commercial communications based on the communication preferences in your account settings. DIGITAL MINISTRY also will send you service-related communications.
