WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We collect your name, email address, and phone number so that our support team can communicate with you and provide assistance. These data will be erased upon user request.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use Google Analytics to track the traffic coming to this website and analyze the performance. Google Analytics collects visitor’s data such as geo-location, language, gender, devices used, and referrer sites. This data is usually deleted by Google Analytics automatically within 50 months upon data collection, or manually by Website administrators upon user request.
WHOM WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH
We will not share your data with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.
HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
WHAT RIGHTS YOU HAVE OVER YOUR DATA
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
WHERE WE SEND YOUR DATA
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
All of your data is encrypted upon collection and transmitted to our secured online servers, or trusted third-parties such as Google Analytics. Access to this data will be strictly limited to a minimum number of individuals and subject to confidentiality commitments.
What data breach procedures we have in place
As soon as a theft, data breach or exposure containing user sensitive data is identified, the process of removing all access to that resource will begin as soon as possible. The management, staff, website administrators, and technical personnel of New Bern Firemen’s Museum will be notified immediately. Immediate investigations and actions will be performed to stop the data breach and further data leak. Authorities will be notified if needed. If the information is available on a site outside of New Bern Firemen’s Museum, that site will be contacted to have the information removed as soon as possible. We will also contact the owner of the data immediately.
