Our Commitment to Your Privacy

Greater Minnesota Family Services (GMFS) provides this statement to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about visitors to our website unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Let this policy be your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our web site.

Reading and Downloading

We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the web site from which you linked to our site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful.

Providing/Protecting Personally Identifying Information

If you share your personally identifying information on our secure server (for example, when making a referral or completing an application), the information will be used to process your transaction, to administer a survey or other site feature.  We maintain HIPPA-compliant security measures to keep your personally identifiable information private and secure.  All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment Gateway Provider's database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (e.g., credit cards) will not be stored on our servers.

We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties.

If users tell us that they do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes. If users wish to review or correct the personal information we have collected, they should contact us (see contact information below) to provide updated information. You cannot remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication.
