The purpose of HomeFaithFamily.com and its shops is to help you learn how to strengthen your home, faith, and family by living simple without losing quality or sanity.
This is done by sharing different ideas and faith-promoting encouragement, personal stories, recipes and more. I hope to help you see the beauty in your life and increase your love and service to those within your sphere of influence. Especially as you encourage others to do the same.
As such, I have a number of costs associated with running a blog. Sometimes when you download a free ebook or sign up for a freebie, I earn a small fee from the manufacturer or company. I do accept paid advertising on my blog’s sidebar and use affiliate links in posts when they are available if they benefit my readers.
However, because my integrity is more important than making a quick dollar if it doesn’t benefit you, I WILL NOT post it, no matter how high the offer is for me to do so.
My readers and their interests are my first priority.
On occasion, I do accept opportunities to host giveaways if they benefit you, my readers, and fits well within the sphere of my blog.
Again, my readers are my first priority. I want you to be able to trust that the content you find on HomeFaithFamily.com is not influenced by money but by the needs of the readers. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are solely mine and I do my best to always be honest and forthright in what I share.
If you ever have questions or concerns, please send me an email. I can’t please everyone, but I want to live with integrity so I always welcome your input and constructive criticism.

SECTION 4 – PAYMENT
Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
SECTION 5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
