NorCal SVTOA Privacy Statement

NorCal SVTOA is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of the NorCal SVTOA website. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.

This policy will let you know:

What personally identifiable information is collected from you

The  NorCal SVTOA Forums collect information in several ways.

Some personal information is gathered when you register for the NorCal SVTOA Forums. During registration, we ask for your name and email address. The system may also ask for other information, however only fields that are marked with an asterisk (*) on the registration field(s) are required. This information is used solely to assist you in navigating the system by automatically storing your information so that you don't have to continually re-enter it. Once you register you are no longer "anonymous" to NorCal SVTOA - you have a username and are able to take full advantage of the many offerings at the NorCal SVTOA website. In addition to registration we may ask you for personal information at other times, including (but not limited to) when you email NorCal SVTOA, register for or post on our forums. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

What cookies are and how they are used

As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, the NorCal SVTOA website may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Several features of the NorCal SVTOA website require that you accept cookies in order to work properly. (See "What choices are available to you regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information" for more information on cookies.)

Generally, we use cookies for the following purposes:

(1) To identify your last visit/contest entry to the site.

(2) Optionally - to permanently save your user name and password on your computer so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site.

(3) To enable you to "mark" posts on the forums that you want to identify as read, or for future retrieval and viewing.

The NorCal SVTOA website may also collect IP addresses for system administration (limited ONLY to prevent abuse to our forums and our site).

How your information is used

The primary goal of the NorCal SVTOA website in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience and to enhance your cybergratification throughout our website.

Who is collecting your information

When you are asked for personal information on the NorCal SVTOA website, you are sharing that information with the NorCal SVTOA website alone. However, some activities will, by their very nature, result in your personal information being revealed to other users of the NorCal SVTOA website. For example, when you enter personal information on the forums profile page, this information is made available to all visitors.

With whom your information may be shared

NorCal SVTOA will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below.

NorCal SVTOA may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of the NorCal SVTOA website, other users of the NorCal SVTOA website, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. NorCal SVTOA will only access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and/or for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and protect the rights of NorCal SVTOA and those that visit our site. We do not and will not access account information for any other purposes or for any other reason then stated above - we value and respect the privacy of all visitors.

What choices are available to you regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information

If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of the NorCal SVTOA website, but you will not be able to access certain areas or use features that require registration.

You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those services of the NorCal SVTOA website that require registration in order to participate. These services include the forums and gallery. You can still use that vast majority of the features of the NorCal SVTOA website even if you do not accept cookies.

NorCal SVTOA does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party (i.e. when entering user information on your profile page for the forums) and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to do so.

How you can access, update or delete your information

We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may edit or delete your user profile at any time by clicking on the "UserCP" link provided on the forums by the system once you are logged in. Once you have logged onto the system during a given session, wherever you go on the NorCal SVTOA website, your information will stay with you until or unless you click on the "Logoff" link.

If you are a previously registered user and you have lost or forgotten your password, you may obtain it by email by using our "Forgot Password" feature. Click the button on any login page to request that your password be emailed to you. We do not normally provide your password by any other means.

Your NorCal SVTOA website account can be deleted, but doing so may result in not being able to access any of the advanced features of the forums that require user registration.

The kind of security precautions that are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information

Other than the administrator of the NorCal SVTOA website, you are the only person who has access to modify your personal information. Your user registration is password-protected and encrypted to prevent unauthorized access.

We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. NorCal SVTOA will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. As an extra security precaution, you may want to logoff once you have completed a session in the NorCal SVTOA website. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, NorCal SVTOA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

How NorCal SVTOA protects children's privacy

NorCal SVTOA is a general audience web site. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online. NorCal SVTOA does not share personal information about users under age 13 with third parties and we do not sell or rent personal information about any of our users, regardless of age.

What else you should know about your online privacy

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example in posts on any forums or through email - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
