At Woodside-area Horse Owners Association (WHOA!), we value your privacy and strive to protect your personal information. This Policy describes what types of information we collect from you, for what purposes, and the choices you have regarding our collection and storage of your information.
This policy may change over time, so you should check back for updates. This policy was last updated on June 04, 2019.
What Information Do We Collect About You?
We collect information provided by you when you communicate with us or request information about or from us by email or other means, fill out forms or fields on our website, sign-up for any of our newsletters, materials or our services or participate in our online surveys or questionnaires.
We also automatically collect information about your computer system or device, browser preferences, online activity, and location when you visit our website. This information includes traffic data, location data, logs, the resources that you access, search queries, as well as information about the computer or device you are using and the internet connection, including your IP address, operating system and browser type. This information is collected anonymously unless you also provide us with your personal information through the filling out and submission of a form.
How Do We Use This Information?
We primarily use the information we gather about you to help us better communicate with you and to respond to your requests for information, services and customer support.
The information we collect automatically is used to help us to improve this website and to deliver a better and more personalized service. It enables us to estimate our audience size and usage patterns, recognize you when you visit the website and customize it according to your individual interests.
In some cases we may collect information from you for a specific purpose, which is described to you at the time your information is collected and for which your consent is given. We do not send any promotional or informational emails without your opt-in first.
If you have consented to receive our newsletter and/or other marketing material from us, you may opt out at any time. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please opt out of our newsletter or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have not consented to receive our newsletter and/or other marketing material from us, and we do not have an active business relationship, we will delete any personal information we have collected about you within 24 months of the date we last communicated with you.
Automatic Information Collection Technologies
The automatic collection technologies we (or our service providers) use for automatic information collection may include:
Web beacons. Promotional emails sent to you may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who opened our emails. If you do not wish to receive promotional emails from us, you may follow the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the promotional email. Note that even if you opt-out, you may still receive transactional emails from us (e.g., e-mails related to the completion of your registration, correction of user data, reminder emails that you have requested, and any other similar communications essential to your transactions on this website).
Service Providers and Partners
We use a number of service providers to help us operate the site and provide high quality user experience to our visitors. Some of those providers can access non-personally-identifiable information about you via automatic data collection technologies.
We use Constant Contact to gather information via forms and registrations, send newsletter emails to users who subscribe to receive them, track anonymous user activity on our sites. This activity may be matched with your personal information if you submit a form. You can review the Constant Contact for additional information on how they manage user data.

With any WHOA! employee or agent for support of our internal and business operations or to respond to a request made by you.
