Organizational Transitions

Security

Online Security

Information requested on our web site on the Contact page and Survey page is transmitted to us via unsecured email. Be aware that these email transmissions are not encrypted for security. For that reason, users should never offer unsolicited financial information (such as a credit card number) in any text field in our contact form or survey form on our web site.

We do not request information directly from the user on the Donate page, however, if a user makes a donation to the Youngsville Fire Department or requests a memorial listing, the user will be directed to share their credit card information through PayPal, which uses a secure (SSL) connection. Users should always look for the "https" in the address line of any page that asks for financial information (the 's' signifies a secure page). The Youngsville Fire Department does not have access to users' credit card numbers when donations and memorials are made through this secure payment portal. If users have any questions about the security of our web site, they can make inquiries through our Contact form.

Offline Security

We take every precaution possible to protect our users’ information offline. Access to our users’ information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, an informational or fundraising e-mailing) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information

If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users’ personally identifiable information. This can usually be done by contacting us via our contact form. Or, contact us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify users via email and by posting a notice on our web site for 30 days.
