Mailing Lists
We allow visitors the opportunity to enter and send us contact information to be included on our email or postal mailing lists to receive information about events and publications we produce we produce for news and information about activities by our partner and sponsor organizations. These may include email messages and mailings sent via the United States Postal Services.

The address lists are not maintained on our website; they are stored securely with password protection on an office computer and are backed up on an external hard drive and securely on cloud-based storage.

Information Gathered Routinely
Software running on our hosting service records certain information about visitors, including the IP address of their computers at the time of their visits, the type of browsers and operating systems they are using, entry and exit pages, and dates and times of their visits. We only review this information to determine the general geographic origin of our visitors and do not connect it to individual visitors.

We use Google Analytics to record and analyze certain information about our visitors. The data gathered are not identifiable to any individual, but do allow those with access to this information to discern specific domains, countries, browser types, and operating systems used by site visitors.

We will use this information to communicate with you in regard to your inquiry, but unless you specifically ask us to use it in some other way, such as being included on our email list, we will only maintain that information in received and sent email folders.
