Terms of Use & Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website addresses are: https://debbiewwilson.com and https://LighthouseMinistriesNC.org.

Lighthouse Ministries and Debbie W. Wilson use your information to understand your needs and interests and provide you with better service.

We do not share or sell our donors’ personal information. Any contribution information is kept in strict confidence and is not shared with anyone outside of these ministries.

This policy applies to all information received by Lighthouse Ministries and Debbie W. Wilson, both online and offline. This privacy protection includes any of our ministry websites as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.

Any online donation information received through a third party service provider will be used only for processing the donation.


What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact Forms / Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.


Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Permissions Policy

Without Our Permission

You are free to do the following:

– Link to our Sites or any specific post on our Sites.
– Extract and re-post fewer than 200 words on any other website, provided you link back to our original post.
– Print off our posts and photocopy up to 50 copies for internal distribution within your own company or organization.
– Print our posts in any non-commercial publication (e.g., company newsletter, church newsletter, class syllabus, etc.), provided you include this copyright notice: ‘© 2023 Debbie W. Wilson. All rights reserved. Originally published at www.debbieWwilson.com.’

Only With Our Permission

You must have our express written consent to do any of the following:

– Use this content for commercial purposes, including selling or licensing printed or digital versions of our content.
– Alter, transform, or build upon this work.
– Re-posting and Translation Rights

We do not permit the re-posting of our posts in their entirety because Google penalizes websites for publishing duplicate content. It often can’t tell which website hosts the original, so we risk getting penalized for granting permission.

Guest Posts

Guest bloggers retain the copyright to the posts they write. If you are interested in re-posting or publishing their content, you must contact them directly. We do not serve as their broker, agent, or contact point.


Affiliate Links

From time to time, our Sites may include featured product giveaways. Should we receive compensation as a result of giving away any such product, that fact will be disclosed.

In connection with the operation of our Sites, we feature on our Sites affiliate links, including links to Amazon.com and other websites (Affiliate Links).
