The New Hampshire Historical Society is committed to protecting the personal information and respecting the privacy of all visitors to our website (this “Website”). It is important that you understand the information collected from you and what we do with it.
You can visit this Website without telling us who you are or revealing information about yourself. In the course of operations, our servers may automatically collect information about your web browser and other relevant information about your browsing session on our site. This information is not used to obtain any personally identifiable information. We have a strict “opt-in” policy and personally identifiable information about visitors to the Website is collected only when voluntarily submitted, for example when a user requests information via a web form.
The New Hampshire Historical Society reserves the right to track non-personal information about users of the Website, including the number of users visiting the Website, the Internet browser being used, and the type of operating system being used. This information is used solely to give us a better understanding of how the Website is being used, and to better tailor the content to our visitors.
Users of the Website may register and create a user profile to take part in Communication Services, to make a purchase, or to take advantage of other features offered. In so doing, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, credit card information, or information about your interests and activities.
The New Hampshire Historical Society will not request any information from a person younger than age 13, in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), and will not knowingly accept personally identifiable information from a child younger than age 13.
HOW COLLECTED INFORMATION IS USED
We may use the information you give us to provide services to you, at your request. We may use it to communicate with you through periodic messages regarding events, and other information and notices we believe you may find interesting or useful. We may use it for confirmation of sales, registrations, or other actions you take on the Website, and for related customer service needs.
We may share our mailing lists with other local nonprofit organizations with similar missions that the New Hampshire Historical Society believes may be of interest to you. Other than for that limited purpose, we do not sell, rent, swap or otherwise share our mailing lists with external organizations. Any personal information you provide to the New Hampshire Historical Society will not be disseminated to outside parties, excepted as disclosed here.
We may retain other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf in relation to the New Hampshire Historical Society’s operations. Examples include web hosting companies, payment companies, and fulfillment companies. Such third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose.
The New Hampshire Historical Society will disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request.
If you send us an email, we may share your email address and message content with others at the New Hampshire Historical Society, and with outside persons and organizations outside who may be called on to assist you.
The New Hampshire Historical Society takes the protection of our users' information seriously, both on-line and off-line. In order to help secure your personal information, access to your data on the Website is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as credit card information) is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and the Website. To protect any data you store on our servers, the New Hampshire Historical Society also regularly audits its system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks. However, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. We believe in enforcement of this policy and if you believe your information has been used in violation of this policy or in any unlawful manner, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
