RPSS Web Site Privacy Policy

The RPSS respects the privacy of the users who visit the pages on this site. Absolutely no effort is made to identify individuals without their knowledge. We do not attempt to obtain your email address and will not receive your email address, or other personal information, unless you knowingly provide it by completing an on site form or send us an email.

If you visit our site we collect and store only the following information about you:

The name of the domain and IP address from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com).
The date and time you access our site.
We do not use cookies.

The RPSS uses the information collected regarding domain name, IP address, and date and time of visit to measure the number of visits to the different sections of our site and thereby help us make the site more useful to visitors. This information is collected solely for statistical / site improvement purposes and is not used to identify individuals.

You may identify yourself to the RPSS by sending an on site form. There are several such forms on this web site. You also may decide to send us personally identifying information completely outside the web site. An example would be an email message requesting information about the Society. We use personally identifying information only to respond to your requests. The RPSS does not share your personally identifying information with anyone. We do not generate a bulk email list which includes your information and we do not contact you unless you indicate you desire it.

Once you join the society and with your consent, your name and address will be published in the Society Directory which is distributed as any other Society document. In the future, the membership directory may contain the email and web site address of members who consent to the publication of that information. You can assume that when the Society directory is published, the information in it will enter the public domain as many people will have access to that document.
