There are two ways we collect information from visitors on our website:
- From online donations made through our website
- From people requesting information or materials, including but not limited to signing up for email communication.
The information we acquire online is voluntarily provided by you when choosing to support a project, sponsor a child, or request to receive information from Hope of Life. The information you provide could include, but is not limited to your name, address, city, state, zip code, telephone number, and e-mail address. Additionally, if you give a donation online, your credit card number, CVC code and expiration date could also be collected. With this personal information we are able to update you on ministry projects, complete a transaction for a donation, and issue a year-end tax statement for donations. Your credit card information is used solely to complete the transaction and is not retained for any other purposes. Our accounting office has access to these details only so they can process the credit card information. Our accounting office consists of reliable, trustworthy staff that has been trained to handle this sensitive information.
When collecting and transferring sensitive data online including personal information and credit card details, Hope of Life wants to ensure the security of this information. Appropriate procedures have been established to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure proper use of the information. We utilize Internet encryption technology, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol, which encrypts your information as it is entered on our website from your computer. The encrypted information is then sent over the Internet and decrypted on a computer in our office. Once the information reaches our office, only a few trusted staff members have access to it.
Sharing of Information
We want to assure you that all information collected through the website is kept confidential. Your personal information is never sold, rented, leased, or exchanged with other organizations. The information is restricted to internal use by Hope of Life.
