Hutterites.org Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. At Hutterites.org we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Hutterites.org operates this website. It is Hutterites.org’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Hutterites.org collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Hutterites.org’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Hutterites.org’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Hutterites.org may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Hutterites.org also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Hutterites.org only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses may be visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Hutterites.org’s websites choose to interact with Hutterites.org in ways that require Hutterites.org to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hutterites.org gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for site updates to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Hutterites.org– by purchasing from the Hutterite store, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Hutterites.org collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Hutterites.org. Hutterites.org does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Hutterites.org may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Hutterites.org may monitor the most popular blogs on the Hutterites.org website. Hutterites.org may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Hutterites.org does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Hutterites.org discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Hutterites.org’s behalf or to provide services available at Hutterites.org’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Hutterites.org’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Hutterites.org will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Hutterites.org discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Hutterites.org believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hutterites.org, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user or subscriber of the Hutterites.org website and have supplied your email address, Hutterites.org may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Hutterites.org and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Hutterites.org takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
