Privacy Policy

This is how the Board of Directors will handle information gathered about you from your visit to the website. The information received depends on what you do when you visit this site.  If you visit this site to browse, read or download information (e.g., ARB, Community Events, Neighborhood Watch, etc.):

The HOA website usage log may collect and store: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com or princeton.edu); the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access the site; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to this site. While the log automatically stores this information, this information is currently not used for any purpose or released to any third parties. It is possible that, in the future, this information could be used to present statistical data on usage of the site. However, no personal identifying information is collected, and any such use would be clearly outlined in this privacy policy. Additionally, this site does not use “cookies.”

If you choose to identify yourself by posting to a blog, sending email or when using online forms (e.g., Shearon Farms Survey): The Board of Directors will use your personally-identifying information only to fulfill your request for information or access to areas of the website. We may enter the information you send into a database of residents, e.g., an online Shearon Farms Residents Directory. However, inclusion in that directory may require your specific consent. Shearon Farms HOA and the Board of Directors will NOT sell, rent, exchange or release to third parties any personal-identifying information you submit via the website or in email to the Technology Committee (or Listserv).

About the security of the information you provide to us:
If you send an email to the Listserv, Technology Committee or Webmaster, you should know that email is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication includes sensitive information that you prefer not to use in email, please contact the Technology Committee by postal mail or telephone rather than email.

Our policy on children’s information (e.g., Team photos, Meet Results, Events):
It is the agreed policy of the Board of Directors to provide the utmost protection of the privacy of Shearon Farm children. Therefore, the website will never knowingly identify a minor child on the website. Photos posted of Shearon Farms’ children will not bear captions specifically identifying any child.

In addition, any Shearon Farms Newsletter articles or photos identifying Shearon Farms children will be deleted from the online versions. This includes the babysitter listings, swim team photos or captions or other identifying information.

If you have concerns about the privacy of Shearon Farms children on the website, please contact the Technology Committee or Webmaster.

General information:
If you experience technical problems with the operation of this website, contact the Board of Directors. Note: This website links to documents located on websites maintained by other organizations. Once you access an individual document that links you to another website, you are subject to the privacy policy of the website containing that document

Cookie:
A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online “shopping cart” to keep track of items you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the website’s computer which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it. Most consumers do not know that “cookies” are being placed on their computers when they visit websites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a website attempts to place a “cookie” on your computer.
