Site Privacy

Thank you for visiting the Friends of the Morgan Hill Library (FMHL) Web site.  We are committed to the privacy of our visitors.  We strive to collect no personal information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide that information to us.

Here is how we handle information about your visit to our site.

Cookies:  Cookies are small files that Web servers place on a user's hard drive.  Our cookies do not contain any personally-identifiable information.  They are used for collecting daily site visitor counts and to help steer file access on the Web server based on links you select in your Web browser.  These cookies expire after your browser session ends or at most after 24 hours, as in the case of the daily visitor counter cookie.

Information collected and stored automatically:  This site does not collect or store any information about you.  If you choose to make a payment through one of the PayPal links, the PayPal site may collect information and store additional cookies on your computer, but such information and cookies are not passed back to the FMHL site.

Information that you voluntarily provide:  We do not collect personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide it to us.  If you provide us with personally identifiable information, for example, by sending an e-mail or by filling out a form and submitting it through our Web site, we use that information to respond to your message and to help us provide you with the information and services that you request.  Uses of that information are described on the Web page containing the form.

Submitting voluntary information constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the stated purpose.  When you click the "submit" button on any of the Web forms found on our site, you are indicating your voluntary consent to use of the information you submit for the purpose stated.

FMHL maintains lists of members who, by providing their e-mail address to FMHL, have consented to receive periodic email updates via a mail list server.  Any recipient of such an FMHL email may unsubscribe from future messages via a link at the bottom of each email message, or by contacting the sender directly if a subscription service was not used.  We do not sell, rent, exchange, or otherwise disclose our list of subscribers to persons or organizations outside of FMHL.

How information is used:  The information we collect is used for a variety of purposes, e.g.,  to respond to requests for information, and to renew your FMHL membership.  We make an effort to disclose clearly how information is used at the point where it is collected so you can determine whether you wish to provide the information.

Retention of Information:  We destroy the information we collect when the purpose for which it was provided has been fulfilled unless we are required to keep it longer by statute or official policy.

Also, FMHL is not responsible for the privacy practices employed by non-FMHL sites that may link to the FMHL Web site, e.g.,  the Santa Clara County Library system.

Interaction with children:  This Web site offers content suitable for children under 13.  No personally identifiable information is collected from these visitors unless voluntarily submitted as a request for information or services.  The information supplied is used to respond to the user's inquiries or to provide services requested by the user.

Links to other sites:  Our Web site contains links to various other organizations.  Once you link to another site, you are then subject to the privacy policies of the new site.  It is always a good idea to read the Privacy Policy of any site you visit.
