WHM PRIVACY AND SECURITY STATEMENT
This Privacy and Security Statement applies to this Web Site which is operated by World Harvest Ministries ("WHM") under the
domain name "www.whm.org.au" ("WHM Web Site"). This Privacy and Security Statement has been compiled in order to disclose our
information gathering process, and subsequent data storage and manipulation.
Questions relating to this statement should be directed to the Webmaster of the WHM Web Site. Please address correspondence

The information that we will collect about you depends on the facilities that you use.
Some areas have their own guidelines, and they are set out in the "Facility Guidelines" sections.
If you visit the WHM Web Site to read, browse or download information, our ISP's host computer will record the date, the
pages viewed, your operating system platform, your browser type, the amount of time spent viewing particular pages, your state/
province, and your country. This means that we do not track anything personally identifiable. Your session will be tracked,
but you will remain anonymous. Additionally, this information is only viewable to approved staff of WHM, and is accessed
via a secured server using SSL (128Bit) certificates.
The WHM Web Site may also contain links to the Web Sites of third party providers of goods and services ("Third Party
Web Sites"). If you access Third Party Web Sites, we have no control over any information collected by them. These Third
Party Web Sites may have different privacy policies, so we encourage you to check their privacy statements. By providing
Third Party Web Site links, we do not specifically endorse any of their products, services or beliefs.
Please be aware that email is an unsecured medium and that information can be intercepted. However, when contacting WHM via
email, we will do everything within our means to preserve the content of anything sent by you. Any personal information
contained in your message will only be available to authorised office staff, except if you place a Prayer Request (see below).
This information is sent to us in the form of an email. We do not request any specific personal details, only your email
address is necessary to submit this information. Your email will be printed and given to our specially selected intercessors.
Our online donation system is protected with the use of 128 Bit SSL encryption. This is the same level of protection offered by
banking institutions. The information you enter into our system will be viewable only by authorised officers of WHM via a secure
log on page. If your internet browser is suitably configured, it will tell you that a digital certificate is in operation. We
collect information such as name, company (if applicable), position (if applicable), residential address, business hours telephone
number, after hours telephone number, fax number (if applicable), email address, web address (if applicable) and credit card
details. We access the secure server, print your details (for processing purposes) and then delete your record from our secure
server. Once the donation has been processed via our electronic credit card terminal, the paper printout is stored under lock
and key conditions. These records are only kept for six months, to fulfil our legal duties as set out by Westpac Australia Bank.
Sponsor a Child
The requested information can be typed into our web-based form, printed, then faxed or posted to us. At present we do not offer
online submission of your details - however we will be adding this feature in the near future. We collect your name, residential
address, home phone number, work phone number, and credit card details (if applicable). This information is only accessible to
authorised office staff. The information you send to us is stored under lock and key conditions. These records are kept for as
long as you remain an Orphan Child Sponsor. To terminate Orphan Sponsorship, you must make your request known in writing. At
this time, your records will be destroyed at your request.
WHM is the sole owner of any information collected on its site. WHM will not share any of your information with any outside
third party without your consent unless we are required to by law, or are asked to comply with requests made by law enforcement
Acceptance and Changes to the Privacy and Security Statement

version of this Statement is available, it will be made available on the WHM Web Site. You agree that by doing this, WHM has
given you sufficient notice of the alterations.
