What information do we collect?
We collect contact information for area school science coordinators or science teachers (name and email address, school) and students who specifically register for our awards program (name, address, school, email, phone). Information is not collected or stored for visitors to our website. When you send emails or other communications to DVSC, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries or respond to your request.
What do we use personal information for?
To administer the Delaware Valley Science Council (DVSC) annual awards program, contact information is needed for regular communications related to student applications and interviews. Typically, school contacts are copied on messages to students unless basic information is requested or questions posed to DVSC.
How do we protect your information?
Personal information provided by students and school coordinators or teachers is not made available publicly and is stored on private personal computers or virtual servers protected by normal security precautions including passwords, anti-virus and other vulnerability measures.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. Contact information is only provided to DVSC board members in order to perform program activities and to award sponsors (professional societies and area companies) so that they may communicate with and congratulate the students receiving their named awards. All students (or parents if under age 18) sign a waiver for release of name and photos to area media outlets.
