Server logs

The server software that powers NVLC’s website automatically records information about the requests for pages, images and other data made by your web browser. This includes IP address, what page or item was requested, and when the request was made.

 

HOW THE INFORMATION IS USED

Information collected through the membership and donation forms, comment and feedback forms, and surveys are used to confirm and respond to your use of these forms, such as register you as a member and send you a welcome, give our many thanks for your donation, answer your questions and inquiries, and prepare statistical reports to support decision-making based on the inputs that are received.

Cookies are used to monitor the traffic on our website so we can keep track of which pages are most frequently visited, and to allow users to go from page to page without re-entering browsing preferences.

Server logs help us to analyze and forecast the resources necessary to run the website, and troubleshoot technical problems when they arise.

Comments are used to revise, correct, update, and evaluate the content of our website.

NVL uses Google Analytics to analyze traffic to this website. These analytic services do not create individual profiles for visitors. They collect only aggregate data with no personally identifiable information about you.

If NVLC is required to disclose information collected from our members in response to any legal process issued by a court, NVLC will comply with the legal process after giving notice to any members affected by it unless a court order prohibits such notice.  NVL may also share personally identifiable information if we believe it is necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of us and/or others.

 

PAYMENT INFORMATION

Payment made on line for joining, renewing membership,  and gifting are made through third party payment processors, such as  Paypal and credit card providers.  NVL does not store your credit card information.  For further details about Paypal and credit card provider privacy practices, please consult their privacy policy provided on their websites.
