Privacy

www.valleyforge.org (and affiliated website such as www.valleyforge.org, www.visitVF.org, etc.) are owned and operated by the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board (collectively referred to as "VFTCB," "us,""we" or "The Board"). The Board's policy is to respect, safeguard and protect your privacy.

Collecting and using your personally identifiable information
In general, we collect and use information about you where we reasonably believe it will help us administer our services generally and improve our response to your requests for tourism and vacation information. The information allows us to deliver information you requested, statistically analyze the usage of our site and improve our content and informational offerings. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise share or disclose your private, personally identifiable information to third parties.

Information provided to us
You provide information when you post and submit information through the sections that request information (such as the contact us, newsletter sign-up, request visitors guide/meeting planners guide/group tour planner, services RFP, group tour RFP, meeting planner's RFP, media requests, photo requests, or online reservations), or when you participate in a contest or questionnaire.

Your information is stored in our database and is used internally. You may opt-out of receiving future correspondence by contacting us at 610.834.1550; web@valleyforge.org, or by mail to the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board (1000 First Avenue, Suite 101, King of Prussia, PA 19406)

Web monitoring analytics
Valleyforge.org uses Google Analytics and server based metrics for web monitoring and tracking services. On this website we collect demographic data from Google's Interest-based advertising with Google Analytics. The Board's web-monitoring analytic software does not capture unique identifiable information, but only collects and analyzes statistical data in aggregate and for trend analysis. Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising by updating their preferences with Google.

Restrictions on disclosing information to third parties
Except for third-party vendor sites (see below for list), we do not sell, rent or otherwise share or disclose your private, personally identifiable information to third parties unless:

  • The information is provided to help provide a service or complete a transaction with you
  • The information is provided to comply with the law (for example, to comply with a search warrant, subpoena or court order), enforce an agreement we have with you, or to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of our employees or others
  • The information is provided to our agents, vendors or service providers who perform functions on our behalf (and who are all contractually bound to maintain the confidentiality of the information)
  • To address emergencies or acts of God
  • To address disputes, claims, or to persons holding a legal or beneficial interest.
  • We may also gather aggregated data about our visitors and disclose the results of such aggregated (but not personally identifiable) information to our partners, service providers and/or other third parties for marketing or promotional purposes.

Links to third-party websites
Some sections on the ValleyForge.org website are hosted by various partners of the Board. These sites maintain the look and feel of our website, and sometimes it may not be evident when a user is on one of these sections. These pages are governed by the partner's privacy policy and terms and conditions of use. Below is a list of our partners and links to their website privacy policies:

Advance Reservation Systems (ARES) - (www.arestravelinc.com/privacy). When you click on on-line reservations or any of the "book it" icons, you will be transferred to ARES, the Board's online hotel reservation system partner. It will appear as if you are still on the VFTCB website; however, this section is controlled and operated by ARES. Since ARES conducts e-commerce, there is important information regarding credit card usage and other information contained in its privacy policy.

Contests and Sweepstakes. On occasion, the Board will conduct online contests, giveaways, or sweepstakes, which require information to be provided for eligibility. The information collected in these contests is subject to our Privacy Policy and Conditions of Use and is not shared with outside parties. However, if the user does not provide the requested information he/she may not be eligible for the contest. The information submitted is entered into a random drawing of the names to determine the winner. The entrant may choose to receive continued e-mails from VFTCB. If the entrant does not choose to receive e-mail, the information submitted by the entrant is deleted from the database after the contest has ended.
