OUR PRIVACY POLICY

Westchester Networking for Professionals (hereinafter referred to as "WNFP") respects and values your privacy.


This Privacy Policy details how WNFP treats the information that is gathered about you when you join the WNFP website, www.wnfp.com (hereinafter referred to as the "Site"), post a profile on the Site or use the services offered by WNFP on the Site.  By registering for an account or using the services on the Site, you expressly consent to the collection, use, disclosure and storage of such information as set forth in this Privacy Policy and in WNFP's Terms and Conditions.

Collection of Information:    
Non Personally Identifiable Information (Cookies):
WNFP uses cookies solely for internal recordkeeping and aggregating data about the traffic on the Site.  Third parties may, however, be placing and reading cookies on your users' browser, or using web beacons to collect information, in the course of ads being shown on your screen.  If you choose not to accept cookies from the Site or from third parties, you may disable that option through your web browser.    

Personally Identifiable Information:

When you sign up for an account, WNFP requires that you provide certain personally identifiable information which may include:

- first and last name,
- phone number,
- zip code,
- ethnicity,
- email address, and
- any other personally identifiable information that you submit in correspondence with WNFP, in your WNFP profile or on the Site.


WNFP does not allow children under the age of 17 on the Site, nor does WNFP knowingly collect any information from any person under the age of 17.  If WNFP is informed that a profile or user account is being made by a person under the age of 17, STS will immediately remove the posting and any personally identifiable information that may have been inadvertently collected by WNFP.


Your safety is important to us.  Please keep in mind that any information you provide to anyone you meet through the Site is not covered by this Privacy Policy.  Remember to be vigilant about protecting your personal information.  If you are going to meet someone that you have connected with on the Site, WNFP recommends that you meet them in a public place.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information:

WNFP will use the personally identifiable information that it collects about you to contact you in response to consumer-initiated inquiries, to provide the services to you that you request, to alert you to changes in services or features, and to provide you with requested information regarding WNFP or our services.  We may, from time to time, contact you about offers that we, or third parties with which we may partner, have that we believe, in our sole discretion, may interest you.


WNFP reserves the right to release current or past user information: (a) in the event that we believe that the Site is being or has been used in violation of WNFP's Terms and Conditions or to commit unlawful acts; (b) upon receipt of a properly authorized and authenticated governmental request for information; (c) in response to a subpoena or a court order, (d) to comply with relevant laws; (e) in response to an investigation of fraud regarding a specific consumer; (f) in an effort to safeguard the person or property of a WNFP employee or a third party; or (g) if WNFP is sold or acquired. 


Moreover, you hereby consent to disclosure of any record or communication to any third party when WNFP, in its sole discretion, determines the disclosure to be appropriate including, without limitation, sharing your e-mail address with other third parties for suppression purposes in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as amended from time to time. 


If you no longer wish to receive emails from us which you have not specifically initiated, you may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the instructions contained in the applicable e-mail.  WNFP processes all unsubscribe requests in a prompt fashion.


International Users:

By using the Site and providing WNFP with data, you understand and agree that due to the international dimension of the Internet, WNFP may use the data collected in the course of our relationship as set forth in this Privacy Policy or in other communications with you, including the transmission of information outside your resident jurisdiction. In addition, you acknowledge that your personally identifiable information and other data may be stored on servers located in the United States or in other international locations. By providing us with your information, you consent to the transfer and storage of such information.

Third Party Sites:

Users listing products for sale or third party advertisers on the Site may direct you to a third party website.  Those websites are not affiliated with WNFP and their privacy policies may differ from WNFP's privacy policy.  WNFP is in no way responsible for the privacy policies or treatment of information from third party websites and strongly encourages you to review the privacy policies of every website you visit to determine what information they collect and how such information is handled by that website.

Storage of Information:


Profiles:  
All information submitted as part of your profile is stored until you request that your profile be removed.  We keep all information, even after a removal request is received. You have the option to opt-out of our mailing list, if you decide you no longer want to participate.  However, just because WNFP has purged the information from its servers does not mean that your information will not be archived by third party sources not affiliated with WNFP including, but not limited to, archive.org, google.com, and groups.yahoo.com.  


Personally Identifiable Information:    
Although WNFP does not release your personally identifiable information to the public and WNFP makes a reasonable good faith effort to store your personally identifiable information in a secure operating environment, we cannot guarantee 100% security of such information due to factors beyond our control.

If you have any questions about our privacy policy or wish to review, or revise the personally identifiable information that WNFP has collected about you, you may send a written request to:

WNFP may take reasonable steps to confirm your identity prior to supplying any personally identifiable information to you in order to prevent identity theft.
