Collecting and using personal information
Welcome to the website of Journey to the Fatherless, a registered trademark of A Child’s Hope Int’l. We appreciate your interest in us. When you visit and navigate our sites and when you communicate with us via our sites, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. Any non-public personal information that you may provide via our sites will be used solely for the purpose stated on the page where it is collected. (In some cases and in all cases where required by law or regulation, you will be able to update the information that you provide to us either by sending us an e-mail or, where you have established personal profiles with us, by updating your profile online. Please refer to the specific pages where data is collected for more information.)
A Child’s Hope Int’l will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of A Child’s Hope Int’l unless (a) expressly authorized by you, (b) necessary to enable A Child’s Hope Int’l contractors or agents to perform certain functions for us, or (c) required or permitted by law. In all cases, we will disclose the information consistent with applicable laws and regulations and we will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the purpose it was provided.
By “personal information,” we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number. From time to time, we may request personal information from you to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.
We welcome your comments or questions about our websites and have provided e-mail boxes for that purpose. We will share your comments and questions with our representatives and those employees or selected volunteers most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.
Please note that your e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via non-cellular telephone at the numbers provided at various locations on our web site.
There are some locations on the web site of A Child’s Hope Int’l where we have made special provisions for a more secure environment in which we can exchange information with you. At each of these locations, we will provide you with appropriate instructions, such as the Donate Now online donation web page.
