GATHERING OF INFORMATION
Voluntary Submission: Port Stephens Family History Society does not collect personally identifying information about any individual website user except when knowingly provided by such individual. You always have the option not to provide the information we request.
Our website contains programmes (plug-ins) operated by the social network Facebook. These programmes are exclusively operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304 USA (Facebook). The plug-ins are clearly visible on our website through the use of the Facebook logo or through the add-on “like” and or “Share” buttons.
When visiting our website containing such a plug-in, your browser will establish a direct link with the servers operated by Facebook; as a result the content of the plug-in will be transferred to your browser and embedded in the website being shown.
If you visit our website whilst signed into your Facebook user account, information concerning your visit will be transferred to Facebook. Facebook can assign your visit to our website and to your user account. Information arising from interaction with a Facebook plug-in (such as by clicking a Facebook “like” button) will be directly transferred to and stored by Facebook. To prevent this you must log out of your Facebook account before visiting our website.
