Last Updated May 20, 2021

Privacy Policy

Thank you for your interest in the RiperYears website (“Site”), provided by The Principle Foundation (“TPF” or “we” or “our”). This Site is offered as an information resource center for senior Christian Scientists, their family, and friends (who may not all identify as Christian Scientists) (“user” or “you” or “your”).

When you use our Site you may provide and/or we may collect certain information that may identify you personally (“Personal Information”). Your right to privacy is very important to us and we are committed to protecting your Personal Information. This Privacy Policy explains when and how we collect, use, and share your Personal Information. Please review it carefully to understand these terms and your rights.

This Privacy Policy is subject to change. If we make any material changes, we will notify you by means of a notice placed on the Site prior to the change becoming effective and we will update the date above accordingly. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy. By using this Site, you agree to the terms and conditions in the most updated Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect and When and How We Collect It

We may collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us and non-identifiable information (“Non-Personal Information”) that we collect through your use of the Site.

Personal Information

You are not required to provide Personal Information in order to use our Site, nor will we request Personal Information from you. We may collect your name, email, mailing address, and/or phone number or other Personal Information you voluntarily provide to us under any of the following circumstances (by example only and not limited to):

  • request additional information about our Site, information provided on our Site, or Third-Party provider information
  • request technical support
  • provide us with your feedback, input, and ideas about our Site or a service provided through our Site
  • request that we add you to our (TPF’s) mailing list

Non-Personal Information

As with most websites, we automatically gather certain Non-Personal Information. Computer data or files, often called “cookies,” may be sent by your web browser and stored on an individual computer to allow our server to “recognize” you through the navigation of the Site. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. Our support team may, from time to time, use Non-Personal Information such as viewer and usage traffic as part of an internal analysis to provide better, more relevant information for users.

How We Use Your Personal Information

We will not use any Personal Information for any purpose outside of the original purpose for which it was provided to us. You may limit emails you receive from us by following the instructions in the “Opt-Out” Section below.

We do not provide or sell any Personal Information to marketing research or bulk advertising sales companies. We may provide your Personal Information to our hosted service providers or to third party providers who maintain and support our Site. If we must disclose your Personal Information for these purposes, the disclosures will be limited to a contact email. These Third-party providers are only authorized to use your Personal Information as necessary to provide these services. All conversations using this Site’s support platforms will be kept confidential including, but not limited to, inquiries for information, emails, chats, and other forms of communication. By providing your Personal Information you are giving us your consent to use your Personal Information for these purposes.

Links to Third-Party Websites

This Site contains links to other websites that are owned and operated by third parties (“Third-Party Sites”) and which are provided as a convenient method of accessing services and information that you may find useful. These Third-Party Sites do not operate under this Privacy Policy. You acknowledge that TPF is not affiliated in any way with any Third-Party Sites, and the links we provide on our Site to a Third-Party Site are not intended to imply our approval or endorsement of that Third-Party Site. Once you have left our Site we have no control over the content and materials that you will be viewing on the Third-Party Site. We are not responsible for the content, accuracy, advertisements, or opinions expressed on any Third-Party Site. We will not, and are under no obligation to, investigate, monitor, or check the Third-Party Sites or any services offered on the Third-Party Sites for accuracy, completeness, or reliability. If you decide to leave our Site and access a Third-Party Site, you are solely responsible for your use of the information or any services offered on that Third-Party Site. We are not responsible for the privacy policies applicable to Third-Party Sites. Once you link to a Third-Party Site, this Privacy Policy does not apply to the content on that Third-Party Site and you are responsible for reviewing the Privacy Policy of that Third-Party Site.


We have put in place suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure Personal Information from unauthorized use or disclosure. However, due to the open communication nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between us will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.

Children Under the Age of 13

This Site is provided for and targeted to senior adults and their friends and family members. This Site is not intended to be used by or designed to appeal to children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13.  If you believe we have been provided Personal Information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at the email below. If we have stored any such Personal Information in our database, we will delete it as soon as reasonably practicable after receiving notice from you.

If you inadvertently receive an unsolicited email from us, you may call or email us at the email and numbers below, and we will take steps to identify the source and correct the error on our end. 

Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 (the California Consumer Privacy Act or “CCPA”) applies to you. Pursuant to the CCPA, this Privacy Policy identifies for the most recent 12-month period: (1) the types of Personal Information we have collected about you, (2) the sources from which your Personal Information was collected, (3) the business purpose(s) for which we collected your Personal Information, and (4) the categories of third parties (if any) with whom we have shared your Personal Information. We will update this Privacy Policy once every twelve months to reflect any changes to this information. As stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell or share your Personal Information with any third parties for marketing or solicitation purposes.

In addition, if you are a California resident, you may request that we disclose to you how we have applied your Personal Information to each of the above four collection and use scenarios by emailing or calling us at the email and/or phone numbers below. Note: It is not our practice to retain your Personal Information in a database for long-term access or use.

We will respond to your request within 45 days of any verifiable request, provided, that we reserve the right to extend this period for an additional 45 days if necessary to verify your information and the veracity of your request. We will notify you of any such extension prior to the end of the initial 45-day period. The information will be provided to you (at no cost) either by mail or electronically.
