Basic Confidentiality Policy
PortsmouthNH.com treats all personal information — such as your name, postal and e-mail address, telephone number or credit card information — as private and confidential. All personal information you provide is stored in a secure location accessible only by designated staff and used only for the purposes for which you provided the information (such as to reply to your request, purchase tickets, send you newsletters, or to handle a complaint).
Types of Personal Information
What personal information do we ask for or collect on this site? PortsmouthNH.com primarily asks for email addresses, such as for users subscribing to email newsletters, making a comment on a message board, or reviewing a movie.
We also request or require more extensive personal and business information, including credit card information, for persons wanting to pay invoices.
Information about Individuals
PortsmouthNH.com collects information about individuals only when they decide to give it to us, and wee do not archive email addresses just we received one.
We are not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about visitors. The server does recognize the home computer address of visitors (the “I.P. address,” although for most dial-up users this 12-digit number changes with each online session), but not e-mail addresses. We can tell which internet service system visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify you.
Cookies are used on some pages, such as to enhance the movie polls, but the information is used only for internal purposes and only during the online session.
PortsmouthNH.com also tracks general information about the visits to this web site. We compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors, the daily requests we receive for particular files, and what countries those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others. The statistics, however, contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

You may be required to provide some proof of your identity.
Release of Information to Third Parties
PortsmouthNH.com does not release personal information to third parties except to further the purpose for which you provided the information, such as receiving email newsletters, if release is required by law, or is pertinent to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings.
If PortsmouthNH.com or an associated third party is interested in using your personal information for marketing purposes, your permission will be asked at the time the information is gathered.
