  • NVPS Commitment To Privacy
    Your privacy is important to the Northern Virginia Photographic Society. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make a link available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested. Updates to this policy are posted to http://nvps.org/main/privacy_policy/.
    The Information We Collect:
    This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the NVPS website. On some pages, you can sign up for emails lists, pay for the club membership & pay for the annual club banquet. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:
    • Name
    • Address 
    • Email Address 
    • Phone Number
    • Family Member Names (for Family Memberships)
    • Family Member Email Address (for Family Memberships)

    How We Use Information:
    We use the information you provide about yourself when paying for your membership only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
    We use the information you provide to send you an invitation to join our main email list.  This is an "opt-in" email list.  We provide another email list with related photography information, but you are required to sign up for this on our web site.
    Your email addresses are not used for any other purpose other than club communications and are not shared with outside parties.
    Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
    NVPS Commitment To Data Security
    To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
    NVPS Commitment To Children's Privacy:
    Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information on our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
    How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information
    You can access and update all your personally identifiable information that we collect online by emailing our Membership Coordinator. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information and we do not store your personally identifiable information on the NVPS website, with the exception of the email information for automated mailings you've signed up for.
    To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
    How To Contact Us
    Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please send us an email at membership@nvps.org.
