We may also acquire non-personal information about our users from external sources.

3. Third Party Sites.
When you click on links and/or ad banners or services provided by third parties that take you to third-party websites, the third party may collect information about you at their web site. It is most likely that the third party may have its own privacy policies that differ from ours. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement whenever interacting with any website you visit.
4. Posted Materials and Emailed Information.
MyHopeGlobal may offer various public forums on and through our site. The materials you post on the website, such as articles, videos, photos, responses on forums, blog posts, directory information and comments, will be reviewed by MYHOPE and are made available to be seen and read by other users of the website. Any information you share, personal or otherwise in one or more of these forums is open to the public and you understand is not private. MyHopeGlobal strongly encourages you to carefully think about what information you post prior to posting, especially given that anything you post can be seen, disclosed to, or collected by third parties who may use such information in ways that MyHopeGlobal cannot either control or predict. We will not selectively remove any content but can remove your account and all related content you post through that account. The exception to this would be if you posted any obscene, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate content, which at MyHopeGlobal's sole discretion, may be removed upon discovery. Even if we remove your account and any related content, we cannot give any assurances that such materials posted to your account are not still available from servers maintained by others (such as search engines or proxy servers) or that others have not already downloaded and stored such materials.
MyHopeGlobal is committed to protecting the privacy of children. The MyHopeGlobal site is not designed or intended to be used or accessed by children under the age of 13. The MyHopeGlobal site does not collect personal information from any person actually known to be under the age of thirteen (13). A parent or guardian, however, may use MyHopeGlobal on behalf of the parent/guardian’s minor child. The parent or guardian assumes full responsibility for ensuring that any registration information submitted is accurate. The parent or guardian also assumes full responsibility for the interpretation and use of any information or suggestions provided through MyHopeGlobal for the minor.
6. Security and Removal of Personally Identifiable Information.
We take reasonable measures to protect the security of your personally identifiable information. When you register on our site your personally identifiable information will be secured via SSL. However, when taking a test, quiz, or other type of assessment, your information may not be secured. Despite our efforts to protect your personally identifiable information, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet may be intercepted.
We will retain your email address as long as your account is active. You can instruct us to remove it, but you should be aware that it may not be technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information from our servers and that we may retain such information as permitted by this policy. MyHopeGlobal tools that collect and store email addresses allow you to correct, update or review information you have submitted by going back to the specific tool, logging-in and making the desired changes. We reserve the right to retain your email address as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, it is important for you to note that we cannot guarantee your privacy. Further, we only retain email addresses which is all we can be required by law to provide or where we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us. We may also disclose personal information in cooperation with a law enforcement request, or if it becomes apparent that you may be a danger to yourself or others.
