NC&StL Preservation Society, Inc. (NCPS) respects the privacy of it's members as well as those users who visit the website. The following policies are in effect for all members of NCPS and those pages of the Web owned and operated by NCPS and are in place to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy.

Members Directory

When you submit an application for membership, you have the option of being listed in our members directory.  This listing is never shared outside of NCPS Members.

Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information and membership practices, and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the NC&StL Preservation Society, Inc. website, application for membership or email correspondence. On some pages, you can apply for membership, make requests, and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

Email address
Phone number

The Way We Use Information:

We use the information you provide about yourself when applying for membership or placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order (your name and address on the shipping carton). This information is required as a necessary part of completing your membership and will not be sold or provided to any third parties.

Under no circumstances will a list of members be distributed to any outside organization for any reason(s). If approached by a group wanting to send brochures to NCPS members, we will ask them to send brochures to NCPS and we will distribute them accordingly. In these cases, NCPS may charge a fee to cover handling and postage.

In the event a membership directory is published, copies will be strictly controlled and available for members only. Prior to publication, members will need to approve their inclusion in such directory. If a signed statement (or email) is not received, your listing will not be included.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

No Spam

NCPS maintains a strict "no-spam" policy. Your e-mail address or mailing address will never be sold or rented to a third party.

Finally, we will never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to give specific permission for such unrelated uses.


If at anytime you wish to review, change or update any personal information provided to us, simply e-mail To better protect the security and integrity of your information, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections to your information.
