HFS does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and does not target its website to children under 13, consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA).   We encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online and mobile activities and interests.


HFS takes seriously the trust you place in us.  HFS protects your personal information by limiting access to HFS management and volunteers who only need specific data to perform specific jobs and/or functions. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, HFS utilizes reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and administrative procedures to safeguard the information we collect both online and offline.  HFS retains data only as required or permitted by law and while it has a legitimate business purpose.


Credit card information is used for payment processing by our third-party service providers.   Credit card information and other sensitive personal information required to process a credit decision is not given to HFS by our third-party service provider. HFS does not control third-party sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from HFS practices. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of third-party service providers before allowing the collection and use of your personal information.


Physical, electronic, and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. HFS takes precautions to protect your private information.

When collecting sensitive data it is encrypted and transmitted to HFS in a secure manner.

HFS may provide links to third-party applications, services or websites for your convenience and information to conduct business with HFS.  If you access those links, you will leave the HFS site.  HFS does not control those third party sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from HFS practices.  We do not endorse or make any representation about third-party sites.   The personal data you choose to provide, or that is collected by these third-party entities, is not covered by the HFS Privacy Policy.   We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any site you interact with before allowing the collection and use of your personal information.


We may also provide social media features that enable you to share information with your social networks and to interact with HFS on various social media sites.  Your use of these features may result in the collection or sharing of information about you, depending on the feature.  We encourage you to review the privacy policies and settings on the social media sites with which you interact to make sure you understand the information that may be collected, used and shared by those sites.


If HFS modifies its Privacy Policy, the revised Policy will be posted here, on our website, with an updated revision date.
