Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

Who we are

Our website address is: https://philamb.org.

By providing us with your data, you warrant to us that you are over 13 years of age.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

This website is intended for the exclusive use of its members. As such, all data submitted will be kept and managed by Phi Lambda Phi Alumnae Association in accordance with the organizational bylaws.

It is very important that the information we hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please let us know if at any time your personal information changes via our contact form here.

Registered user information is retained indefinitely.

Data can be exported or removed upon users request.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

When visitors or users submit a form, we capture the IP Address for spam protection. We also capture the email address and might capture other personal data included in the Form fields. All collected data might be shown publicly and we send it to our workers or contractors to perform necessary actions based on the form submission.

Polls

When visitors or users submit a poll, we capture the IP Address for spam protection and to set voter limitations. All collected data might be shown publicly and we send it to our workers or contractors to perform necessary actions based on votes.

Quizzes

When visitors or users submit a quiz’s answer, we capture NO Personally Identifiable Information. All collected data might be shown publicly and we send it to our workers or contractors to perform necessary actions based on answers.
