Welcome to www.activatedministries.org! We extend the following information to assure you, our guest, that we are concerned about and respect your privacy while visiting our Web site. At Activate Ministries we have gone to great lengths to ensure that all personal information and credit card data is treated with the highest standards of safety and confidentiality.
Orders placed on our site are encrypted using industry standard technologies such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Secure Hypertext Transport Protocol (HTTP-S). When implemented on both the browser and server, the purpose of SSL is to ensure that your credit card data is not read as it travels over the Internet and that it arrives unaltered at our server. You can be assured that placing your order through our Web site is as safe as placing your order by phone or by mail.
Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered a secure means of transmitting credit card information. As a result, we do not recommend that you place your order by email, but rather use the online order form or submit your order by phone by calling our Order Department at 1-760-739-1196. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 10 am-4 pm, PST. We are also happy to answer any questions you may have by e-mail at email@example.com.

It's against our affiliate policy for the affiliate to share this information and/ or to send unsolicited commercial email (SPAM).
