Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us, and we go to great lengths to protect it. We assure you that under no circumstances will we knowingly compromise your privacy. We take this committment very seriously.

However, we also believe you have a right to read a fully detailed description of what information we collect, how we collect it, what information is shown publicly on our website, and how your information is used. Below is the Home School Enrichment Privacy Policy, which provides detailed answers to each of those questions.

How we collect information:

We believe in using up-front, legitimate methods of collecting information from our website visitors. Thus, the only personal information we collect from or about you is what you deliberately, knowingly choose to provide. We use online forms with each user-field clearly marked, so you always know exactly what information you are sending.

What we collect:

When you register for a membership to the Home School Enrichment website, you must provide some basic information that is necessary for the correct operation of your membership. You must also create a username and password, which you choose yourself and is only personally identifiable if you choose to make it so. Your password is encrypted so that it cannot be read, even by our administrators.

From time to time, you may also have the opportunity to provide other personal information, such as to request a sample copy of Home School Enrichment Magazine, join our e-mail updates, or to request technical support. In all such cases, this information is gathered only through a deliberate submission by you, as detailed in the "How we Collect Information" section above.

We also collect anonymous usage statistics, such as what browsers our visitors are using. No personally identifiable information is included in these statistics.

What information is displayed publicly on our website:

If you are a registered member on this website, your Username and/or Screen Name (chosen at registration, and editable afterward) may be displayed publicly. Additionally, it is possible to post other information about you in blog comments or other areas where user-submitted content is used. You are not obligated to post personal information in these contexts and doing so is your choice. Please note that we discourage posting personal information in the public areas of our website.

How we use the information you provide:

After registering for a membership on our website, requesting a sample of Home School Enrichment Magazine, or otherwise providing information, the information you provide may be stored in a database. Following is how this information is used.

Any time you provide your e-mail address to us, you can be sure it will be kept entirely private. This means that under absolutely no circumstances, except if required by law, will your e-mail address be provided to third parties.

On rare occasions, we may use your name and mailing address to send you a free sample issue of Home School Enrichment Magazine, or other information related to Home School Enrichment. As a service to you as a homeschooler, we may also occasionally allow certain carefully-selected organizations to use our database to send you information about products and/or services of interest to Christian homeschoolers. If you prefer not to be included in this opportunity, simply contact us and we will promptly take the necessary steps to ensure that your wishes are honored.

Cookies:

Our website makes the use of cookies, some of which are used by our website for proper operation of our membership-based features. For instance, some of these cookies are used after you log in to your membership to make sure you stay logged in between pages. Such cookies are used internally by our website, and are not used for any other purpose than to ensure proper functionality.

Other cookies may be used to help compile anonymous usage statistics. These cookies do not contain any personal information about you, and are not necessary for the proper operation of our site, although they do help us tailor our site to better meet the needs of our visitors.

Conclusion:

Again, we take your privacy very seriously, and are diligent in protecting it. Should you have any questions about our Privacy Policy or any other aspect of our website, please feel free to contact us.
