At Schenectady County Tourism Agency (SCVA), we respect your right to privacy and your requirements to control personal information. “Personal information” includes, but is not limited to, name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card information. SCVA does not sell or rent any personal information. The intent of this Privacy Statement is to inform users of our Internet site www.visitschenectady.com (herein all referred to as “SCVA”), on how the site collects, stores and uses personal information submitted via the site.
COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
No software or hardware techniques are employed to capture a visitor’s e-mail address without their knowledge. Certain applications on the SCVA website may require users to register or to provide personal information in order to make a commerce transaction, to enter a contest, or to subscribe to a newsletter. Such personal information may be shared with third party regional arts and cultural organizations to provide a service to you as well as to assist these organizations in growing attendance. To better enable us to service our patrons, the web site may be used as a survey tool to request demographic information. Entry of such information is optional and if you choose not to enter such information, you can successfully use these applications. If we request demographic information, we will not share your personal information as an individual with any other entity. If we do share demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.
If you provide your e-mail address SCVA may contact you periodically with special offers, updated information and new services. Any emails sent to you by SCVA offer you the option to be removed from the e-mail mailing list. If you provide SCVA with your email, mailing address or telephone number, SCVA, in addition to providing you with reminders and updates, may also use this information to alert you to updated information and new services. If you wish to be removed from these mailing lists, you may unsubscribe at any time or do so by contacting SCVA directly. (See the ‘Contact Us’ section below).
SCVA may embed content, such as videos, from third-party content providers. That embedded content is provided directly to you from the content providers’ servers, which may allow them to collect information about you in ways that isn’t covered by this policy.
COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGY
We do not solicit personal information from children. Sites specifically geared toward children will not request any personal or contact information.
