We do not independently gather or use any individually identifiable information about our users from our web site.
Your Control Over Your Data
We will provide you with access to your personal data upon your verified request to us.
It is not our practice to gather personally identifiable data, except in limited instances as noted in this document. Therefore, our ability to provide you with your data is limited to those cases in which you have provided us with personally identifiable information and where that information is attached in some manner to the data.
You have the right to correct any errors in your data.
You may have your personal data erased from our records, if it exists.
You may also object to us processing your personal data and you may download a copy of your data, if such data exist in our records.
Please note: While these options are available to you, as noted we do not routinely gather information that can be identified with any individual. Therefore, our ability to delete your records or provide a copy for you to download is limited to those cases in which there is some verifiable means to connecting records to you.
We allow visitors the opportunity to enter and send us contact information to be included on our email or postal mailing lists to receive information about events and publications we produce for news and information about activities by our partner and sponsor organizations. These may include email messages and mailings sent via the United States Postal Services. The address lists are securely maintained and the information is not, subject to limitations noted below, provided (either directly shared nor sold) to any outside entity. The address lists are not maintained on our website; they are stored securely with password protection on an specific computer and are backed up on an external hard drive and securely on cloud-based storage.
Information Gathered Routinely
Information Gathered When You Make an Inquiry
If you write to us via email with an inquiry, we will have a record of the email address you sent the inquiry from and any information about yourself that you may include. We will use this information to communicate with you in regard to your inquiry, but unless you specifically ask us to use it in some other way, such as being included on our email list, we will only maintain that information in received and sent email folders. Such information will only be shared with one or more third parties if such sharing is necessary in fulfilling a request you make of us and for which you have authorized us to release such information. For example, if you inquire about planning an event and ask us to have potential vendors contact you, we will necessarily share your contact information with appropriate vendors to fulfill your request.
Right to Have Your Information Deleted
Except under limited circumstances in which we may be legally required to maintain your records (such as under a court order, for example), we will delete any information we maintain about you upon your request. Each email we send to those on our mailing list has a link to notify us if the recipient wishes to be removed from the list, and we honor such requests promptly. If you want records of emails you may have exchanged with us to be deleted, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. As a security measure to ensure such removal requests are authentic, the record removal request email must be sent from the address whose records are to be removed. Thus, if you have communicated with us using more than one email address, and want them removed, we require you to send a separate email for each address to be removed, and each sent from the account that is to be removed. If you have been registered for an account on our website and wish to no longer have authenticated access, you may delete your account and all content related to your account will be automatically deleted from the operating website. These data will remain in our database backup for approximately four days, at which time they will be deleted automatically.
