Use of Cookies

The Stanwix Community Association Website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Stanwix Community Association pages, or register with Stanwix Community Association site or services, a cookie helps Stanwix Community Association to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Stanwix Community Association website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Stanwix Community Association features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Stanwix Community Association services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Stanwix Community Association secures your personal information from unauthorized access online, use or disclosure.

Stanwix Community Association is a very small voluntary organisation and is unable to secure personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment where it can be fully protecteded from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.

This information may reside on the individual home computers of current officers of the Association. We are currently updating protocols to ensure that your information is properly secured.

When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

Stanwix Community Association will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Stanwix Community Association encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Stanwix Community Association is protecting your information.
