Privacy Act Acknowledgement
From time to time we are approached by organizations to distribute information to our members. In these cases VWN maintains control of the distribution and will under no circumstances make its membership list available to those organizations. Members of the VWN may contact you from time to time. It is recommended that members of the VWN obtain permission from the receiving party before forwarding unsolicited information.
Each Chapter of the VWN publishes a directory which becomes a matter of public record. Once printed, the VWN cannot guarantee that the information contained within the directory will not be distributed beyond the control of the VWN. Emails regarding meetings and other events may be sent from the VWN website from time to time.
The personal information you provide when renewing your membership or registering for an event will be protected. When you proceed with an online transaction a secure connection is established and your information is encrypted to prevent interception during the transaction. The secure connection is maintained until the transaction is completed or terminated.
VWN may gather data concerning traffic on the website for statistical analysis. This data is not linked to your personal information, and is used strictly to improve content of the site.
Our website may contain links to websites of other organizations that maintain their own privacy and security policies. This policy articulates the privacy practices of the VWN site only.
Photographs taken at or during VWN events may be published in a newsletter or on the website without the express and specific approval of the parties in the photograph.
