Mustard Seed Ranch (“MSR”) Privacy Policy

This statement defines MSR’s Privacy Policy for mustardseedranch.org and describes the practices that MSR will follow with respect to all information collected or submitted and with respect to the privacy of this site’s users.

Periodically, we may change this Privacy Policy as we update and improve our services or add new features. As a result please check back from time to time for the most updated version of our policy.

MSR’s Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information

“Personally identifiable information” is information that can be used to identify you as an individual. Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, user ID, credit card numbers, social security number, and any other information that is connected with you personally.

The only time MSR collects personal information, is when we have first expressly asked for the information and then you have voluntarily provided it in connection with a donation, event sponsorship or request to be added to our mailing list. It is always the users choice to provide any of this information to MSR. If you have volunteered your information, you have agreed to allow MSR to collect and use your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Policy.

In some circumstances, MSR may share information you voluntarily provide us with trusted business partners, to help increase the services we offer and/or our internal effectiveness. However, MSR does not sell or rent personal information collected through this site to anyone. MSR may also disclose information in special cases or when necessary to comply with applicable laws or processes; protect and defend our rights or property; or act to protect the interests of our users or others.

MSR’s Use of Cookies

A “cookie” is a piece of data that our website gives your browser to enhance your browsing experience. The information stored in a cookie is used to increase the efficiency of your experience and to provide greater convenience to our users by reducing repetitive messages and retained user preferences. If you choose to not permit the use of cookies, you will still be able to browse our site, but it is likely that some features, such as those that require registration or sign-in, will not function properly. With or without cookies, our website does track usage information in the aggregate for analysis.

Your Choices in Relation to Your Information

As mentioned above, by volunteering information, you consent to MSR’s collection and use of that personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Policy.

If you have voluntarily provided personally identifiable information, we may, from time to time, send you mail or e-mail regarding our programs and services. If you do not want to receive such mailings, you can easily indicate that by following the unsubscribe link contained within the message or by contacting MSR at the below address.

Protecting Your Information

MSR exercises commercially reasonable care in protecting your personally identifiable information. This includes, among other things, using industry standard protection techniques like firewalls and encryption.

Unfortunately, the Internet is not 100% secure. As a result, while MSR endeavors to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail, where we have no means of protecting the contained information until it reaches us. Once MSR receives your transmission, we undertake commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our servers.

Other Websites

At times, MSR may provide links to other websites, including those of our business partners or sponsors. This Privacy Policy, however, applies only to information collected by MSR. While we seek to only link to sites that share our standard and respect for privacy, we encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site. Always read the privacy policy of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. MSR is not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other sites.
