Our Commitment to Privacy

The Table knows that you care how information about you is used and shared. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy which explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used on this website. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy and the website. By visiting, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice (Policy).

Our website is maintained by The Table, a church whose mailing address is 1050 Larrabee Avenue Suite 104 418, Bellingham, WA 98225.

What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected on this Site?

When you visit our website, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include, but may not be limited to, registering to receive e-mail newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, donating to us, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and may store any information you enter on our website or give us. We may ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. The Table does not collect personal information from you without you specifically providing it to us. If you choose to not provide any personal information, we may not be able to fulfill your request or complete your donation transaction. However, if you do not provide us with personal information, you will still be free to browse the other sections of the website owned and administered by The Table. In other words, you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The Way We Use Information

When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information or to make a donation. Similarly, we use information you provide about yourself or someone else when placing a donation only to process the donation and confirm receipt. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that transaction.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our new projects and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.

For website registration, online giving, online community groups, various types of online communication including email newsletters, and other services, we use the platform provided by Faithlife Corporation. Therefore, we encourage you to read the Faithlife Privacy Policy.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. The Table does not sell, rent, give-away or share its e-mail addresses or other information with outside sources.

Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, The Table will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain e-mail consent from you. We will also post the changes to our use of personally identifiable information on our site at least 30 days prior to a change.

Our Commitment to Data Security

Personally identifiable information is stored on servers and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by The Table personnel on a "need to know" basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Additionally, sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted using SSL and other industry standard measures, to provide an additional level of security.
