Collection of Personal Information:
The Irvington Historical Society is committed to keeping your personal information strictly confidential. In general, when you visit our Website and access information, we do not require you to register or provide personal, identifiable information to us. However, there are occasions when we will ask for additional information. For example, you may be required to register your name and e-mail address or other necessary information if you wish to register for an event, receive e-newsletters, event information, participate in special initiatives or in surveys or contests. It is your choice to provide such information, and you may opt-out from receiving any of this type of information in the future.
When we collect your personal information (i.e. name, address, e-mail, and telephone number) it is in an effort to improve your experience on the site and to notify you about updates, services and answer inquiries. It is our policy not to disclose any of your personal information at any time, unless you tell us to do so. We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to third parties.
Internet Protocol and Cookies
We may keep track of your interactions with our Website and our services to offer a more personalized experience through your Internet Protocol address or through the use of “Cookies” and web analytics services.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is associated with the portal through which you enter the internet, like your internet service provider (ISP). Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our visitors visit various parts of our Website. We may also combine this information with personally identifiable information, e.g., your name and address that you have provided to us to make our Website and communications more targeted to your interests.
Personal, Identifiable Information Contained in User Content
Some sections of our Website may allow users to post or transmit messages, comments, screen names, computer files and other materials. We encourage your thoughts, stories, photos, but be advised that any content you submit to the Website will not be returned to you and may be used by the Irvington Historical Society in any manner we see fit, including reprinting it in full or in modified version on our Website or elsewhere or using elements of it on our Website. You will not be entitled to any remuneration for any use of your content by the Irvington Historical Society.
You are solely responsible for the contents of your transmission through our Website. The Irvington Historical Society is not obligated to monitor such transmissions, and therefore cannot be responsible for any personally identifiable information or other information that may be contained in such transmissions. You agree not to transmit through the Website any unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, or harmful material of any kind or nature.
Use of Personal Information
We may provide links to third party websites existing outside of the Irvington Historical Society. Because we do not control the content or functionality of these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on those third-party websites.
We use industry-standard methods to protect your information from unauthorized access. Among other techniques, we store such information on a computer behind our “firewall” in a secure location, and we restrict the number of employees internally who can access such data. To ensure the safety of your personal information, including your credit card number, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet. Any data stored is kept in a secure off-site location and stored in a password-protected server. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
