Children’s Privacy Policy

The THM Network consists of informational sites for supporters, parents and children about Teen Hope Ministries. One specific goal of the network is to provide information to children, ages 11 and up, who participate in or are interested in the various Teen Hope Ministries activities. It is our intention to provide a safe, fun environment where children may explore Teen Hope Ministries, their own Teen Hope Ministries club and other Teen Hope Ministries activities.

We care about your privacy and we take great care to safeguard your personal information. We do not require our users to supply us with any personal information. We never condition a child’s participation in an activity on the child’s disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. All personally identifiable information we do collect can only be accessed by authorized Teen Hope Ministries staff, and only those people who require access may see this information. We preserve the confidentiality, security and integrity of that information. Upon your request, we will provide you with information as to all of the personal information we have regarding you and your child and we will not share this information with any third parties. As we continue to offer our visitors new and different types of content and services, we may modify our practices periodically. However, we will treat all personal
information we collect in accordance with the privacy notice in effect at the time the information is collected. You will be notified and your consent will be requested should there be any material changes in the collection, use, or disclosure practices to which you have previously agreed.
