Orcas Island Library respects the privacy concerns of the users of its Internet Sites ("Sites"), and has created this privacy statement to explain what information we gather from your visit to our Sites, and how such information may be used.
Use of Information
As a general policy no personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or e-mail address, is automatically collected from your visit to Orcas Island Library Sites. However, certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of Orcas Island Library Internet servers. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address is gathered in order to enhance your online experience.
Our Sites' various comment and signup forms, when used, may request that you give us contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or e-mail address) demographic information (such as your age and gender) and profile data (such as your type of business). Personally identifiable information is never sold or leased to any third parties. With your permission, we may use your contact information to send you newsletters and/or information about what we're doing. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings.
Our Sites may use various order forms for you to request information, products, and services. We collect contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or e-mail address), and when appropriate, financial information (your credit card number) to process your request or purchase. Contact information from an order form is used to fulfill orders, and to provide information about our club to you if requested. The contact information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary regarding your order. Financial information that is collected is used to process your request for products and services, and will not be shared with third parties who are not involved with the transaction. When credit card information is requested we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
Orcas Island Library may disclose user 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 (either intentionally or unintentionally) with Orcas Island Library's rights or property, other Orcas Island Library web site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. 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, Orcas Island Library cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk.
