WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND WHAT DO WE DO WITH IT?
We don’t collect any Personally Identifiable Information (i.e., Information that can be traced back to you such as your name, home address, telephone number, and email address). We do place a “cookie” on your computer, though. A cookie is a little tidbit of electronic data that tells us what computer you’re using so we can make your experience easier when you return to our Site.
We may also collect and aggregate Non-Personal Information (i.e., Information that is not traceable back to you and cannot be used to identify you) indicating, among other things, which pages of the Site were visited, the order in which they were visited and which hyperlinks were “clicked.” Collecting such information involves the logging of the IP addresses, operating system, and browser software used by each user to the Site.
You should be able to control how and whether cookies will be accepted by your web browser. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of the Site may not work properly, but you do not have to accept our cookies in order to productively use the Site.
We cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using our servers or services for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement individuals or entities for investigation or prosecution.
This site may contain links to web sites operated by companies other than HopeLab (“Third Party Sites”) that we believe may be of interest to you. Since we do not collect your Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot disclose this information to these Third Party Sites. We may, however, on occasion share Non-Personal Information with Third Party Sites.
COULD I ACCIDENTALLY REVEAL MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MYSELF?
Not currently, no. The Site does not currently have the ability for you to publish Personally Identifiable Information, but in the future it might be possible. For instance, we might add a chat feature or we might have a feature that allows you to write on a digital wall, post pictures, or participate in a message board. As the Site allows you to do more stuff, you could write and post things that could tell people who you are, even if you didn’t intend it. The point is: we’re looking out for you, but you should look out for you too. It’s important for your safety to protect any information about yourself you don’t want anyone to know. Any information you voluntarily provide is stored on our computers.
Re-Mission and HopeLab are committed to protecting the privacy of children. We do not request or collect Personally Identifiable Information from any child under the age of 13. Currently, the only way for us to get Personally Identifiable Information from children, or from anyone else, is if you send us an email. The parent or legal guardian of a child under the age of 13 may request to have the Personally Identifiable Information of his/her child under the age of 13 deleted and refuse to allow any further collection or use of such information.
