Information Collection and Use

The Vilas County Lakes and Rivers Association website collects standard tracking information about each visitor to our website in three ways: (1) through your IP address, which does not contain any personal information, (2) through any email correspondence you send to us, and (3) when you submit information using an online form on one of our web pages. Information from your browser, including your IP address, pages you visit, the length of time you spend on our site, and the files you download, is recorded in our website server logs. We use and analyze this data to develop site content and to provide you with a positive experience when you visit our website.

Online giving transactions are processed on a secure server. The Vilas County Lakes and Rivers Association uses industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies in an attempt to ensure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information. Methodologies include, but are not limited to, SSL encryption, user authentication, Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards compliance, web application and traditional firewall use, anti-malware program use, timely software security patch application, and physical barriers. We occasionally have third parties perform services on our behalf, such as data processing, marketing, analytics, financial transaction and credit card processing. These third parties may have access to the personal information you provide us through the website only as needed to perform their services for VCLRA, and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of the personal information. While we try our best to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

The Vilas County Lakes and Rivers Association will not sell, rent, loan, or otherwise disclose your personal information to any other organizations, with the exception that VCLRA may use or disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary or appropriate.
