This website uses “cookies,” a technology that installs information on a website user’s computer to permit the website to recognize future visits using that computer.

When you use this site, you may do things like complete your personal profile, send messages, create content, collaborate about content, and post comments. We collect this information so that we can provide you these services and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily return to your favorite church.

You post content on the website at your own risk. Although we allow you to set preferences and permissions that limit access to your pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We are not responsible for circumvention of any preferences or permissions or security measures contained on the website. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of Individual Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other individuals have copied or stored your Individual Content.

Saint Columba Cathedral may send you service-related announcements from time to time on the services Saint Columba Cathedral offers its customers.

Third-Party Business Partners and Advertising


Advertisements or information from our business sponsors who support your communities and churches may appear on our website and are sometimes delivered (or “served”) directly to individuals by third-party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third-party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer or use other technologies such as JavaScript and “web beacons” (also known as “1×1 gifs”) to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. Saint Columba Cathedral does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on Saint Columba Cathedral unless you choose to share it with them.


This privacy notice covers the use of cookies by Saint Columba Cathedral and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.


From time to time, Saint Columba Cathedral may send you advertisements from our business sponsors. You may opt-out of such e-mails from the Preferences and Permissions Page.
