Personal Information Privacy
VLBC is committed to protecting the privacy of individuals whose personal information we collect. All VLBC Directors and members are expected to respect the privacy and confidentiality of personal information entrusted to VLBC and to comply with the requirements of FIPPA.
WordPress websites are set to automatically gather certain information regarding each visitor to a website. This is strictly and solely intended for technical aspects of the website and will not be used for any other purpose by either this website or WordPress. Like most website operators, WordPress collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. WordPress’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WordPress’ visitors use its website. From time to time, WordPress may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
WordPress also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. WordPress does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as explained at https://wordpress.org/about/privacy/
VLBC protects personal information by ensuring security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information are in place. Such security safeguards may include passwords; encryption and secured storage. Any personal information that is no longer required for either administrative, financial, legal or historical purposes shall be securely destroyed in a confidential manner in accordance with record retention protocols. However, personal information will be retained for specified periods where required by law. The FIPPA requires that any personal information that is used by VLBC for making a decision that directly affects an individual is to be retained by VLBC for at least one year after being used.
