For example, if you personalize Weigh Down Ministries pages, or register with Weigh Down Ministries site or services, a cookie helps Weigh Down Ministries to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Weigh Down Ministries Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Weigh Down Ministries features that you customized.

We may also use cookies to personalize content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyze our traffic. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners who may combine it with other information you’ve provided to them or they’ve collected from your use of their services.
