Information Collection, Use, and Sharing 

Once you are a member of Sonoma Valley Newcomers Club, you may be assigned an account and password in order to access certain areas of this website.  Website users are required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the activities on our site in which you have expressed interest.  You may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.

*We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. 

*We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

*We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to join or renew your membership, or event registration.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about changes to this privacy policy.

We request information from you on our membership and/or event registration forms. To register, you must provide contact information (like name and address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used to process your registration. If we have trouble processing a registration, we'll use this information to contact you.

We use a credit card processing company to bill users for membership and event registration services. The company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond processing your registration.

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.


This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.


From time-to-time our site may request information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site, or for the purposes of assessing the services and communications of Sonoma Valley Newcomers Club.

Your Access to and Control Over Information 
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address given on our website:

·       See what data we have about you, if any.

·       Change/correct any data we have about you.

·       Have us delete any data we have about you.

·       Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only other members are granted access to personally identifiable information when they access our website. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
