Purpose of the Policy

The Welcome Families New Hampshire website respects the privacy of everyone who visits us. We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it voluntarily and knowingly.

Data collection

Welcome Families NH collects two types of information: personal, voluntarily provided information, such as that you enter by choice to create an account to customize your searches; and non-personal statistical information, such as site traffic and usage patterns. This information is used to best understand your needs and to enhance the user experience on our website. Information obtained is only accessed by Welcome Families NH agents involved in the operation of this website, and will never be sold or provided to third party entities.

Data Security

Though we cannot guarantee there will be no unauthorized access to personal information, we have instituted reasonable measures to increase the security and privacy of the information traveling to and within our website. The website server is accessible only by the developers of the website, and the Content Management System is accessible only by the developers of the website and the administrators of the website.

Please note that activity on third-party websites accessed from Welcome Families NH is subject to their own third-party privacy and/or data policies, which may differ from this website’s privacy policy.
