HelpHOPELive takes many steps to protect your privacy. This statement (which follows the highest industry standards) explains our information gathering and managing practices for this website.
What information do we collect?
You can visit our website without submitting any information about yourself or being required to register. On our site, we only collect personally identifiable information voluntarily and knowingly submitted by a visitor.
If you send us an e-mail, subscribe to one of our online publications, or fill out our online application (“Apply Now” tab) we will have your name, e-mail and the other relevant information you have provided.
If you make a donation (including event registration), you will be asked to enter your name, billing address, credit card or e-check information, e-mail and phone number.
How do we use information you choose to provide?
If you make an online donation, register for a fundraising event, sign up for our e-newsletter, or fill out an online application your information will be added to one or more of our databases and you may be contacted with HelpHOPELive news and/or fundraising messages.
We may also provide opportunities for you to submit additional personal information through our “Contact Us” function. By submitting this information to us you give us permission to receive it, review it, edit it, store it, post it on our website (without specific identification information), and use it in appropriate settings designed to illustrate the impact of our services.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit or access your personal information.
Our credit card processing is PCI Compliant. We use a secure server. All supplied credit card information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology (the industry standard security technology that is designed to protect sensitive information) and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database, accessible only to those authorized with special access rights to such systems; they are required to keep the information confidential.
Our donation pages display a Secure Site Seal to assure you that our website is authentic and that transactions are secured by SSL encryption. If you are making an online donation the credit card information that you provide at the time of donation is used to process your donation.
After a one-time donation, your credit card information will not be stored on our server. If you choose to set up recurring donations you will be asked to set up a billing profile. In this case, your credit card number is encrypted in our web database and only the last 4 digits of the credit card number are displayed or printed. (One exception is that when a donor wants to edit billing information, the entire credit card number is displayed on a secure page so you can update the credit card number.) The security (CVV) code is never stored.
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow them) that enable the site’s or service providers’ systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
Our website may log the IP addresses of visitors, but only to administer the site and diagnose problems with our server. IP addresses are not used to identify individuals.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We reserve the right to share personal information you provide with legal authorities if it is, in our sole opinion, necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected fraud, situations involving threats or potential harm or if required by law (such as by subpoena, court order or other legal means).
Third party links
To help you find information that may be useful to you, our site contains links to other sites. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. HelpHOPELive is not responsible for their privacy practices or content, so we suggest you read their privacy policies for more information.
