Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

Updated on March 21, 2020


We don't collect or share personal information.

That's our privacy policy in a nutshell.

When you visit the Floyd County Historical Museum web site, we don't know who you are and there is no way to tie your activity together.

When you access the Floyd County Historical Museum web site (or any Web site), your Web browser automatically sends information about your computer, e.g. your User agent and IP address.

Because this information could be used to link you to your web activity, we do not log (store) it at all. This is a very unusual practice, but we feel it is an important step to protect your privacy.

It is unusual for a few reasons. First, most server software auto-stores this information, so you have to go out of your way not to store it. Second, most businesses want to keep as much information as possible because they don't know when it will be useful. Third, many web sites actively use this information, for example to show you more targeted advertising.

Another way that your internet activity is often tied together at other web sites is through browser cookies, which are pieces of information that sit on your computer and get sent to the web site on each visit. What web sites often do is store a unique identifier in your browser and then associate that identifier with your internet activity. At Floyd County Historical Museum, no cookies are used by default.

What web sites generally do when they anonymize data is get rid of part of your IP address or turn it into something that doesn't look exactly like an IP address. And they do the same thing for uniquely identifying cookies.

However, in many cases, this so-called anonymous data can still tie your web activity together, which can be used to reconstruct who you are and what you do online. Additionally, web sites usually are silent on what they do with the User agent, which has been shown to also have enough information to often be personally identifiable, especially if isolated to a particular web session (day).
