Privacy policy
Fresh Hops is a nonprofit ministry.  It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Guiding principles
Your identity, unless you choose to reveal it to us, remains anonymous as a visitor to our websites. If you do reveal your identity to us, we use that information to respond to your request and/or provide you with ministry resources. We do not rent, sell or use it for any other purpose.

In order to do this, we utilize industry-standard statistical software that helps us track usage patterns. This software and related processes operate in a way that respects your privacy and allows you to remain anonymous, unless you choose to reveal your identity to us. Below is a more detailed description of the safeguards we’ve instituted to guard your privacy while honoring your requests for service.

Gathering of personally identifying information
Certain visitors to the Fresh Hope website will choose to interact with Fresh Hope in ways that require us to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for the daily emails to provide their first name, email address and zip/postal code.

Those who engage in transactions with Fresh Hope—by purchasing through our Store, for example—are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process transactions.

In each case, we collect only the information needed to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Fresh Hope. Information collection, use and storage are always secured using widely accepted modern technology.

Fresh Hope does not disclose personally identifying information. Visitors may always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may limit their ability to benefit from certain Fresh Hope website-related functionality.

Fresh Hope will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Fresh Hope discloses potentially personally identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Fresh Hope believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Fresh Hope, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of the Fresh Hope website and have supplied your email address, Fresh Hope may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features and resources, solicit your feedback or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the Fresh Hope ministry or opportunities. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish the request (however, will not disclose your personal information in i) in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

Fresh Hope uses modern technology as part of its procedures to reasonably protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying information.

Privacy policy changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Fresh Hope may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at Fresh Hope’s sole discretion. Fresh Hope encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your use of this site constitutes your acceptance of all site policies.
