MVSRA Privacy Policy

The MVSRA recognizes that the growth of online services, including Internet services, has created additional privacy concerns, particularly for its constituents.

Online privacy concerns focus on the protection of "person identifiable" information, which an individual reasonably expects to be kept private. As the term suggests, "person identifiable" information is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, a person's name, address or telephone number, e-mail address, and information about online activities that are directly linked to them.

The MVSRA knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy for MVSRA services, maintained by the MVSRA Executive Board appointed Webmaster, and hosted by Peak Internet Service Provider (Peak ISP), which has further privacy protection guidelines.
