This statement applies solely to information collected at www.discovernewengland.org, www.discovernewengland.co.uk. Your use of this site indicates your agreement with the privacy policies outlined below. Please note that this policy may change from time to time, so check this page periodically for changes.

Information Automatically Collected and Stored by this Site
Any time you use the DNE websites noted above, our server automatically records information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your search request, Internet Protocol address, IP geographic location, browser type, browser language and the date and time of your request. These IP addresses and domain names are captured (logged) and summarized as part of system administration to monitor the use of the website. We may also monitor a visitor’s movement within our site. We use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our website and to evaluate traffic statistics, such as the number of visits to our site, the average time spent on our site, the time of day and days of week at which we see peak traffic, the number of pages viewed and various other site statistics. This information helps us improve the quality of our content and provide a more useful online experience for our visitors.
Personally Identifiable Information
“Personally identifiable information” is information about a person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. It includes, for example, an individual’s name, street address, e-mail address, or phone number.
Personally identifiable information will not be collected unless you voluntarily send an e-mail message, fill out and send an online form, or fill out personal information and send in a survey. Your choice not to participate in these activities will not impair your ability to access certain information or obtain a service. Unless specifically protected under state law, any information provided may be inspected by the public or disclosed in a legal proceeding.
We will not attempt to match any personally identifiable information that you provide to us with your IP address, unless there are reasonable grounds to believe that doing so would provide information that is relevant and material to an authorized law enforcement criminal investigation.
Our website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. DNE uses generally accepted, industry-standard security systems, software, and encryption technologies to protect against unauthorized access to DNE’s servers, equipment, and other components of our online presence. We also use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Credit card processing information for the DNE Summit is collected via a third-party using an industry-standard security system. DNE makes no assurances beyond that provided by industry-standard security systems.
Because this site does not encrypt incoming e-mail, you should not send information that you consider highly sensitive through this Web site. We use standard security measures to ensure that your personally identifiable information is not lost, misused, altered or unintentionally destroyed. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
The information collected by DNE will be used for the purposes on the page in which the form/e-mail request is located. Users who provide information may be added to the DNE regular e-mail list or state-specific emails lists unless they specifically request not to be included.
The information we collect will not be used to create customer profiles. We will not supplement information collected at our Web site with data from other sources. We will not share data with third parties. Information is shared with the six New England State Tourism Departments, who are joint directors of DNE, and with DNE contracted European representatives.
Within this site, we offer links to other Web sites. These links do not imply an endorsement by DNE, and users should note that we have no control over the content of these sites. DNE is in no way responsible for the contents of these linked sites or any links within those sites. Please note: When you click on links to other Web sites, we encourage you to read their privacy policies. Their standards may differ from ours.
The images on this site are for on-screen viewing only and may not be copied, reproduced, manipulated or used in any way, for personal or commercial use, without, express written permission of DNE, stating rights granted and terms thereof.
Unauthorized use or reproduction of a photograph constitutes copyright infringement and is a violation of federal copyright law.
We maintain a library of high resolution images to accompany editorial coverage. Please contact us at email@example.com or call our US offices at 603 766 0606.
DNE makes every effort to ensure that published information is accurate and current. No officer, or employee of DNE warrants the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of any information published on the DNE websites, nor endorses any products or services linked from this system, and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by reliance on the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of such information. Portions of the information may be incorrect or not current. Any person or entity that relies on any information obtained from this system does so at his or her own risk.
If our policy on information collection or use changes, it will be posted here promptly. Your continued use of this site implies your agreement with this policy, and it is your responsibility to check for any updates.
