Hope Web Services takes your privacy seriously
We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone for their promotional use without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is used only for the purpose of contacting you or sending you emails based on your request for information, and to contracted service providers for the purpose of providing services relating to our communications and business dealings with you.
Hope Web Services automatically and through third-party tracking services (e.g., Google Analytics) gathers certain non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Website and stores it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, to improve the content of our website and the quality of our service. Out of respect for your privacy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
We take all reasonable precautions to ensure the protection of all such personal information.
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer or smartphone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
- enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
- recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
- measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast
- You can learn more about cookies and how to manage them yourself at the Wikipedia.org website
