This is how the Providence Forge Technology Committee will handle information gathered about you from your visit to the website. The information received depends on what you do when you visit this site.
If you visit this site to browse, read or download information (e.g., Newsletter, Community Events, Hot Issues):
If you choose to identify yourself by sending email or when using online forms (e.g., Providence Forge Survey):
The Technology Committee will use your personally-identifying information only to fulfill your request for information or access to areas of the website. If you consent, we may enter the information you send into a database of residents, e.g., an online Providence Forge Residents Directory. However, inclusion in that online directory will require your specific consent. Providence Forge HOA and the Technology Committee will NOT sell, rent, exchange or release to third parties any personal-identifying information you submit via the website or in email to the Technology Committee (or Listserv).
About the security of the information you provide to us:
If you send an email to the Listserv, Technology Committee or Webmaster, you should know that email is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication includes sensitive information that you prefer not to use in email, please contact the Technology Committee by postal mail or telephone rather than email.
Our policy on children’s information:
It is the agreed policy of the Technology Committee to provide the utmost protection of the privacy of Providence Forge’ children. Therefore, the website will never knowingly identify a minor child on the website. Photos posted of Providence Forge children will not bear captions specifically identifying any child.
In addition, any Providence Forge Newsletter articles or photos identifying Providence Forge children will be deleted from the online versions. This includes the babysitter listings, swim team photos or captions or other identifying information.
If you have concerns about the privacy of Providence Forge children on the website, please contact the Technology Committee or Webmaster.
If you experience technical problems with the operation of this website, contact our Webmaster.
A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online “shopping cart” to keep track of items you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the website’s computer which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it. Most consumers do not know that “cookies” are being placed on their computers when they visit websites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a website attempts to place a “cookie” on your computer.
