Privacy Statement

Whispering Hope Ranch Foundation (WHRF)—a charitable organization serving children in the United States—wrote this privacy statement to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have. Some of the concepts below are a little technical, but we've tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way. We welcome your questions and comments on this statement.

What we know about you

These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other internet service, there's certain information that almost always gets created and recorded automatically.
  • When you use our website, our servers automatically record usage logs. This log data may include your IP address, the address of the pages on our site that you visited, your browser type, and the date and time of your request. This information may be used to address site performance and security concerns. As such, it is not possible to opt-out of this data collection. These log files are permanently deleted from our servers after 30 days.
  • Depending on how you're accessing our products, we may use "cookies" (small text files sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your your browser) or similar technologies to record data. When we use cookies, we use "session" cookies (that last only until you close your web browser). For example, we may use cookies to store your language preference, how you have filtered or sorted data, etc.
  • When you complete our contact us forms, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, your email address, and any other information you intentionally provide us.
  • You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may follow us on social media, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (like your friends or contacts). The information we get from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.
  • We utilize Google Analytics to monitor site usage behaviors and performance. Google Analytics prohibits the storage of personally identifable information. You may opt-out of Google Analytics data collection.
  • We honor your browser's "Do Not Track" setting.
If you learn that your minor child has provided us with personally identifiable information without your consent, please contact us immediately.

What we do to protect your information

  • This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
  • Our website also utilizes HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) which enforces HTTPS for all communications to and from our website.
  • We only share your information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with United States laws, regulations, or legal requests; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public or any person; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.
