TFI Online Privacy Policy

Welcome to the TFI Online Privacy Policy. TFI Online is a series of community websites of The Family International. This policy sets out how your personal information is managed on our websites and applies across all TFI Online sites (see the complete list of TFI Online Network websites covered by this policy at the bottom of this page).

For members of TFI there is an additional privacy policy that covers and the personal information that you enter there.

Personal information we collect

We collect a very limited amount of personal information about visitors to TFI Online sites.

Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit one of TFI’s websites ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, the pages that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.

Your personal information is stored on secure servers that are managed by TFI’s webmaster and service providers. Any personal information that is stored or transmitted is protected by security and access controls, including username and password authentication and data encryption where appropriate.


If you subscribe to one of our email subscriptions, we will collect your email address so that we can fulfill your subscription request. This email address is transferred to our third party email service MailChimp and only used to deliver the requested subscription(s) to you. You can review MailChimp’s Privacy Policy here.

Every subscription email contains links near the top and bottom to “update preferences” and “unsubscribe”. You can use these links to change the subscription or to unsubscribe. Unsubscribing will completely erase your information.

If you would like to erase your information and are not able to use the “unsubscribe” link on an email, please notify us at and we will be happy to erase your information for you.

Web analytics

We use a third party service Google Analytics to collect, monitor and analyze anonymous statistical data to help us determine how to improve the TFI Online sites and services we provide. A randomized IP address is sent to Google Analytics for statistical purposes and does not uniquely identify you.

The information generated about your usage of our websites will be transmitted to and stored by Google on their servers. Google will collect this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of TFI websites, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Further information about Google’s privacy policy may be obtained from
