General

The EVPL website ("evpl.org") collects personal information when you sign in to your account at evpl.org, when you use certain products and services, when you visit evpl.org pages, and when you register for programs, events, and meeting rooms.

When you register, we ask for personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, phone number, etc. Once you register on evpl.org and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us.

The EVPL automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you request.

The EVPL uses information for the following general purposes: to customize the content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal use.
