PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy is critically important to us. If you find content on the LWVOR website you believe violates our Privacy Policy, please contact us immediately.

We do not ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We do not share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights.

We do not store personal information unless required for the operation of our services.

It is LWVOR’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data, please contact us.

Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to LWVOR’s website choose to interact in ways that require LWVOR to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LWVOR gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for membership at LWVOR.org to provide an email address, mailing address, phone, and (if applicable) payment information.

Those who engage in transactions with LWVOR — by purchasing goods from our online shop, for example — are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LWVOR collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LWVOR.

LWVOR does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities. LWVOR does not store credit card information.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, LWVOR may change its Privacy Policy from time to time. LWVOR encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
