Privacy Policy

Harvesters International Ministries (Harvesters) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site.

Harvesters assures you that the identity of all who contact us through this website is kept confidential: we do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists and we will always strive to be responsible in our management, truthful in our advertising, and cost-effective in our fund raising. We are continually working to ensure every dollar is used to its fullest for this purpose. Anything less would violate the trust we keep with you, with the children, families, and communities we serve, and most importantly, with God.

We are committed to the highest standard of stewardship excellence. We will exert every effort to honor any designation of preference you have stated. In certain circumstances, where a project is overfunded or cannot be carried out in accordance with your preference, the funds will be used for similar projects approved by the Board of Directors.

As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user’s activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to the Harvesters site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, aol.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. We use the information we record to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer this website more effectively, and to gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors hail from and their behavior on our site.

In some cases our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make donations. Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, provide receipts and other information about Harvesters to our supporters. Users may readily opt-out of receiving future communications; see the Opt-Out and Modifying Your Information” sections below.

Those who choose to register through various “guestbook”-type features on our site may choose to give us certain contact information (such as their email address). These features may also request optional demographic information (such as zip code, or age). Unless you “opt out,” we may use this contact information to send you additional information about Harvesters and its programs. Your voluntarily provided contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. You may readily opt-out of receiving future communications; see the “Opt-Out” and “Modifying Your Information” sections below.

Opt-Out

Most points on our site provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request contact information about the visitor.

Should you wish to opt-out, contact us at info@him-usa.org or 1-843-689-6213 and we will unsubscribe you from receiving further communications from us.

Users may also opt-out at any time by contacting us following the methods provided in the “Modifying Your Information” section below.
