The information that COHLA collects helps us to provide information that relates to church services and items needed to carry forward and manage our Ministry activities. We will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to commercial entities. However, your contact information may be shared with Geremy Dixon Ministries, Center of Hope Community Development Corporation, and Plan4Hope, Inc.

We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information to help us improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content.

Security:

All information provided to COHLA is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of COHLA. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant its security.

Protecting our Children:

Center of Hope LA and its campuses encourage parents and guardians to spend time with their children online. No information may be submitted to or posted on COHLAs website by users 13 years old and younger. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, COHLA or any of its campuses will not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever for our users 13 years and younger. If any services or features on the site require registration, a user 13 years old and younger will be required to provide the email of the parent or guardian which will allow us to notify that person that the child has registered for a service or feature. Parental or guardian consent will consist of an email from that person to COHLA stating that they are aware that the child is using the website. Identifying a website user as 13 or under is not easy, and COHLA will not be held responsible for anyone misrepresenting themselves as over 13 when in fact they are not.

Other Websites:

Our site may contain links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you enter another website for which COHLA has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different from ours.
