Privacy Policy

Effective Date of Current Policy: August 27, 2016

Our Commitment To Your Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, the following notice explains the information we collect, how it is used, how it is safeguarded, and how to contact us if you have any concerns.  This Policy applies to the website http://www.hopechest.org and all subdomains, microsites and landing pages on the Site.

What Information Is Collected

Children’s HopeChest collects two types of information during your visits to our Site.

First, we collect non-personally identifiable information. When visitors come to our Site, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages of the Site were visited, the order in which they were visited and which links were “clicked.” Collecting such information involves logging the IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each visitor to the Site. Although such information is not personally identifiable, it may be possible to determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity.

Second, we collect personally identifiable information. In general, our Site uses a contact form. This form requires that you provide us with personally identifiable information (such as your name, email address and telephone number). We also collect relevant information to receive your donations.  Please review our Donor Privacy Policy for more information.

How Non-Personally Identifiable Information Is Used

Children’s HopeChest uses non-personally identifiable information, such as your IP address and the pages that you visit on our Site, to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our Site and improve Site-related services and features. Your IP address and other non-personally identifiable information also may be used to gather broad demographic information and to recognize customer traffic patterns and Site usage trends. This information aids us in developing the design and layout of the Site. We also may share aggregated statistical data and other non-personally identifiable information with our current and potential business partners, and with our service providers.

How Personally Identifiable Information Is Used

Children’s HopeChest uses personally identifiable information collected from you to complete transactions initiated by you (such as the sale and delivery of products and services). Your personally identifiable information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary. We may also use personally identifiable information to contact you to make sure you are satisfied with our goods and services or to find out how we can serve you better.

You may, from time to time, receive information from us regarding new features, new products and services and special offers we think you’ll find valuable. We will not share your email address with other companies unless required in a non-marketing capacity (see “Certain Non-Marketing Uses”, below), and we will not rent, sell or exchange your mailing address or information about your transactions with any third parties.

Keep in mind that, while we encourage all third parties involved in running our business to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our visitors and to otherwise handle personally identifiable information in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from Children’s HopeChest or independently.

Service Providers

We work with third parties who provide services, including but not limited to website hosting, credit card clearance, e-commerce affiliation, data analysis, e-mailing and other services of an administrative nature. Personally identifiable information, including financial information, is shared with such third parties for the purpose of providing such services.

Choice/Opt-Out

If you do not want Children’s Hope Chest to send to you announcements or special offers by email, please email us at childrenshopechest@hopechest.org with “Remove” in the subject line. Please allow up to two weeks for your request to be processed.

Certain Non-Marketing Uses

Children’s HopeChest may send you periodic announcements regarding status updates, service changes concerning the Site and other administrative matters.

Subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to release information concerning any Site visitor where such visitor is believed to be in violation of his or her obligations to us, is partaking (or is suspected of partaking) in any illegal activity, in response to civil and/or criminal subpoenas and discovery requests, to protect the interests of Children’s HopeChest, our customers or others, and as otherwise permitted or required by law.

Third-Party Websites

Emails from Children’s HopeChest and the Site itself may contain links to other websites, including sites that may or may not be owned or operated by Children’s HopeChest. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites, including such sites’ use of any information (such as IP number, browser type or operating system) collected when email recipients or Site visitors click through links to those sites. If you visit such websites, we encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of the sites.

How Your Information Is Stored

Children’s HopeChest seeks to use reasonable security measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personally identifiable information that is under our control. Unfortunately, no security system, or system of transmitting data over the internet, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of the foregoing, while we seek to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and Children’s HopeChest’s servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the Site. You provide all such information at your own risk.
