The Railyard Stewards is committed to protecting your privacy. The information below covers what information The Railyard Stewards collects on the Website and how we use it. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What information do we collect?
The Railyard Stewards collects information volunteered by visitors, such as answers to survey questions, information collected when downloading or requesting publications and information collected when contacting us for assistance. Information The Railyard Stewards collects includes personally identifiable information (for example, name, address, and email), information about organizational affiliation, and information about your interests. No personably identifiable information is collected about individuals without their knowledge. The Railyard Stewards also collects aggregate information about Website use, without identifying personal information, such as what pages and sections are most popular with users. We also collect your email when you sign up for our e-newsletters but this occurs only with the full intention and consent of the user.
How is this information used by The Railyard Stewards?
The Railyard Stewards uses the information you voluntarily provide to help us decide what Website content, publications, emails, and other Railyard Stewards’ information would most help you meet your goals and to shape our Web content and email outreach. The Railyard Stewards uses aggregate information about Website usage to shape Website content.
Sharing information with third parties
The Railyard Stewards shares aggregate information about Web users and Web usage with our contractors who help us shape Web content to user interests and otherwise improve our Website. The Railyard Stewards does not make any list of visitors to the www.railyardpark.org website available to third parties. We make portions of our postal mailing list available to carefully screened organizations that we believe may interest you. If you do not want to receive this information, please let us know.
The Railyard Stewards provides forms on its Website where users can sign-up to receive email publications and email notices. No one is placed on a regular email list that has not requested subscription through these forms or in some other manner. Users can unsubscribe from any email list on the registration section of our Website or through the unsubscribe link on any email we send you. As new email publications are developed, users may be sent an invitation to subscribe.
The Railyard Stewards takes the following measures to ensure that information collected on The Railyard Stewards’ Website is kept secure and is used as intended:
All data is stored on secure, firewall-protected servers either at The Railyard Stewards offices or those of business with whom The Railyard Stewards has contracted to support our online donation, email outreach, and website upkeep services. Data is accessible only by authorized staff of The Railyard Stewards and its contractors.
Sensitive data, such as credit card and other financial information, is collected through PayPal, which uses industry-standard Secure Socket Layer Encryption (SSL) technology.
Credit card information is retained only as long as necessary to complete the donation or purchase request of the user.
The Railyard Stewards takes utmost precaution to protect credit card information. But users who prefer not to use credit cards for online donations can send donations to our address available in our contact us section.
The Railyard Steward’s electronic newsletter system uses “session” cookies to assist the system in providing a user with access to his or her subscription information. Session cookies are temporary and expire when a browser session is closed.
The Railyard Steward’s electronic newsletter system requires a password to access the subscription management page. For the convenience of users, The Railyard Stewards offers the opportunity to be “remembered,” by the system so a password is only required on the first access. Asking to be “remembered” by clicking the “remember me” or similar dialog box when asked places a permanent cookie on the user’s machine. The Railyard Stewards’ system never places a permanent cookie on the users’ machine unless a user specifically makes this request.
Links to Other Sites
The Railyard Stewards’ Website provides links to several other third party Websites. While we make efforts to choose our links carefully, we cannot take any responsibility for the content of linked Websites, or for the privacy policies of Websites we link to. Since we do not control these Websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these third party Websites prior to any use.
