Please take a moment to read about your privacy rights concerning your use of our website.
Policy — It is our policy to not collect any personally identifiable information from our website visitors. The member roster information contained on this site is culled from the membership roster of the Barbershop Harmony Society.
Members — If you are a member of the Norfolk Chapter, this personally identifiable information may include your name, address, birthday, telephone numbers, membership number, membership expiration date, email addresses, and other information that you have provided to the Barbership Harmony Society. It is our policy to assign chorus-related email aliases to our chapter officers and committee chairpersons for their use and for use on the publicly accessible portions of this site. Private email addresses may only be displayed on the publicly accessible portion of this site after receiving permission from the member whose email address will be displayed. The copy, or mirror, of the full chapter roster that is provided on this site is maintained on the members-only portion of the server and is only accessible by entering your assigned username and password.
Website Visitors — When you access our website, our server automatically collects statistical information about your visit, including information such as the country you are located in, search strings that were used to locate our site, the address of a referring site, the page you initially entered or exited our site on, as well as the date and time you accessed a particular page. These statistics can be viewed at http://commodorechorus.org/stats/index.html.
Use and Sharing
Use Policy — We consider any personally identifiable information we have for our members to be confidential. Publicly accessible contact information for our chapter leadership will be limited to their name, the position they hold in the chapter, their phone number and their assigned chorus-related email alias address.
Retention Policy — Member information contained on this site will be removed within 30 days after receiving notice of the expiration of that person's membership in the chapter.
Sharing Policy — It is our overall policy not to disclose to others outside of the Barbership Harmony Society any personally identifiable information about our members without their prior consent. We do not sell or provide our member's personal information.
Special Exceptions — We reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information in our possession if we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to comply with the law or legal process served on us.
Taking Proper Precautions — Maintaining the security of your own personal computer is an important part of protecting your own privacy. You should use and update regularly your antivirus software, firewall and your operating system to prevent unauthorized access by others and harm from various forms of viruses. Persons with questionable intent may use the Internet or email to pose as someone you trust or do business with. You should always be sure who you are dealing with before responding with personal information. To avoid all these and other forms of attacks, we encourage you to visit the CERT® website at http://www.cert.org/tech_tips/home_networks.html for updates and tips on protecting yourself.
Personal Information — We use a password protected directory on the server to control access to our members-only information. The username and password may be changed without notice and all current members of the chapter who have provided an email address to the Barbershop Harmony Society will receive notification of these changes when they occur. We cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent unauthorized access.
In an effort to hamper the effectiveness of the robot "sniffers" that spammers use to mine email addresses from websites all of the publicly-accessible email addresses on our website are built using scripts and are not listed "in the clear".
Rights of our Members
Our members have the right to request that their legal privacy rights be protected and may ask that their information be removed from the chapter roster located in the members-only area. All members are advised that this request only pertains to this website and does not affect the membership listing found in the members-only area of the Barbership Harmony Society's website.
Any member serving in a leadership role in this chapter is assumed to have given permission for their name and telephone number to be listed on the chaper contacts page located at: http://commodorechorus.org/contacts.htm
