Fruitland Peninsula Historical Society Privacy Policy

The Fruitland Peninsula Historical Society (FPHS) collects certain information from members and occasionally non-members. We do not sell or share any personal information with third parties.


FPHS collects information on its membership forms, including name, address, email address, phone number(s), and spouse (for family memberships). This information is stored in the membership portion of FPHS’s website. It is accessible to FPHS board members, but not to other members, and not to third parties, with one exception. FPHS uses MailChimp for some mailings. Members’ names, email addresses, and membership status are included in the MailChimp account. The webmaster and two others have access to that account.

Membership payments are tracked on FPHS’s MemberPress site, but not payment information. All online payments are processed through PayPal. FPHS neither receives nor retains any member’s credit card, bank account, or other financial information.
