Your privacy is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting it and respecting it.

The following governs our use of the personal information you provide through this web site and all affiliated web sites of GeoVisions.

Guiding Principles
When we collect personal information from you, we generally require only the information needed for us to provide the service requested.  With every transaction or interaction, there is basic information that we must have to do our job well…so we require it.

At the same time, we endeavor to deliver as enhanced and personalized an on-line experience as possible, to improve and expand the ways we communicate what we do and to gather feedback from you.  The success of these endeavors depends on knowing more about you, and so we ask for additional personal information on subsequent visits to our web site and as you proceed through the application process.

Security
Personal information you give us is kept confidential and protected using industry-standard technology, such as firewalls and secure socket layers (SSL), a sophisticated internet encryption technology that scrambles data as it travels from your computer to our web site’s servers. The encryption certificate issued for our web site is by Verisign and the encryption certificate issued for any pages involving payments is issued by Authorize.net.

You will notice on our home page that you can click the VeriSign Secure badge to check the details of our certificate.

Note: Personal information stored on our web server is securely encrypted and stored away from publicly-accessible areas of the web site. No transmission of data over the internet or any other public network, however, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we make diligent efforts to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, we cannot warrant the security of information you transmit to us.

Cookies
This web site employs cookie technology.  A “cookie” is a small piece of information that a web site asks your browser to store on your hard drive. This information helps the web site “recognize” you instantly. Cookies recall information you entered before so you don’t have to reenter it again, tell us what pages on the site you previously visited, and help us determine whether you came to the site from a particular internet link. If you prefer, you can disable cookies on your browser settings. You may still use our web site, even with cookies disabled.

E-mail Addresses
We do not sell, rent, exchange, or otherwise share e-mail addresses to anyone outside GeoVisions.

However, within GeoVisions, we do use e-mail addresses collected from an assortment of web site interactions to send periodic communications about our work in general and about specific subjects which we believe may be of interest to you.

Your Consent
By using our web site, you consent to the collection and use of personal information by GeoVisions as described in this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy at any time. If this policy should change, we will post the policy changes on this page. Once posted, such changes shall be effective immediately. Your continued use of this site shall be deemed as acceptance of the modified policy.

Please be aware that when you click on links that take you to third party web sites, you will be subject to the third parties’ privacy policies, not ours. While we support the protection of privacy on the internet, we cannot be responsible for the actions of third parties. Therefore, we encourage you to read third party privacy policies whenever interacting with, and prior to providing any personal information to, another web site.

We welcome feedback on our Privacy Policy. Please send to info@geovisions.org.
