PRIVACY POLICY – June 7, 2011

The Victor Historical Society (the “Corporation”) is firmly committed to preserving the privacy of its members, website visitors and financial donors.  The Corporation’s privacy policy concerning the gathering and use of data is being provided to enable others to make knowledgeable choices about whether to provide information to us.


The Corporation does not sell or trade members’, website visitors’ or donors’ personal information (defined as e-mail address, name, telephone number, or home address) to outside third-parties.  We will not disclose personal information unless: (i) we change website hosts; (ii) we first obtain permission from the donor (for instance, to receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition); (iii) we need to share it with agents or contractors who perform services for us; or (iv) we are required by law to disclose it.  We may send members, website visitors and donors information in the future about the Corporation and its activities by e-mail or by post.  Website visitors can opt-out of receiving communications from us by following the opt-out instructions in our e-mails.


The Corporation may track information on which site pages are being visited and used so we can make decisions about the design and usage of our site.


The Corporation takes seriously the safety and security of the information provided by those using credit cards for transactions through its website. The Corporation works with DigiCert in order to process on-line transactions.  DigiCert  uses high grade encryption and security protocols.  Please see DigiCert's Privacy Policy at www.digicert.comfor more information regarding its security and privacy practices.


Whenever the Corporation handles personal information, it takes steps to ensure that such information is treated securely and in accordance with its privacy policy.  Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, while we use our best efforts to respect and protect others’ personal information, the Corporation cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us online and Internet users do so at their own risk. 


Please contact Kathryn White, President at , with any questions or concerns.


The Corporation reserves the right to revise this privacy policy.  Members will be requested to please review it periodically.  The privacy policy will detail when it was last updated, by for instance, the following statement: “This policy was last updated on [month/day/year].”
