Privacy and Security

Overview of Churchteams Privacy and Security


Churchteams respects and protects the privacy of our users. The information Churchteams collects for a church or organization belongs to that church or organization.

Information imported or input into the Churchteams database is used solely for the purposes of that church or organization. Any other use requires consent by both the church/organization and individuals within the church/organization.

Organization contact and free trial email addresses may be sent emails from Churchteams relating to new features and services periodically.

Any change to the policy regarding the use of your data will be communicated via both email and U.S. mail to the organization's contact person listed in a Churchteams account at least 30 days prior to the change taking place.


At Churchteams, protecting your personal information through online security is of the utmost importance. We use Extended Validation SSL/TLS certificates, and encryption is required when accessing Churchteams. We disable older SSL protocols and ciphers that have been proven to have weaknesses. Nine security levels are available to limit accessibility to the use of personal and group data according to the responsibility of individuals within the church/organization. Access within the different security levels can be customized according to the preferences of the church/organization.

Churchteams takes the security of our applications and data very seriously and institutes a number of measures described below to ensure the security of the servers, applications, and data.

Our servers are hosted with Microsoft Azure.  Database backups are run daily with hourly backups of the log files to support point-in-time recovery if needed. Encrypted copies of those backups are stored onsite as well as offsite for disaster recovery purposes.

Below is a link to more information about Microsoft Azure-related security measures.
