Online Submissions and Communications

If you complete an online form and share your personally identifying information, we will use your information in the manner you requested or we will use it to reply to your question. We may use your contact information to send further details about our organization or to contact you about future opportunities to engage with us.

Sending us an Email

You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an email message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a web form that provides us this information.  We use personally identifying information from the email to respond to your requests.  We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer your questions.

Information We Collect

When you access our web site, the routing, or client, information, and the essential and nonessential technical information listed below is automatically collected. No other information is collected through our web site except when you deliberately decide to send it to us (for example, by clicking on a link to send us an e-mail). The information you might choose to send to us is listed below as “optional information.”

  • Routing or Client Information: the Internet domain and Internet address of the computer you are using.
  • Essential Technical Information: identification of the page or service you are requesting, type of browser and operating system you are using; and the date and time of access.
  • Nonessential Technical Information: the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our web site.
  • Optional Information: when you send us an e-mail, your name, e-mail address, and the content of your e-mail; when you fill out on-line forms, all the data you choose to fill in or confirm.

How the Collected Information Is Used

Routing information is used to route the requested web page to your computer for viewing.  We send the requested web page and the routing information to our Internet service provider or other entities involved in transmitting the requested page to you.  We do not control the privacy practices of those entities.  Essential and nonessential technical information helps us to respond to your request in an appropriate format and helps us plan web site improvements.

Optional information enables us to provide services or information tailored more specifically to your needs or to forward your message or inquiry to another entity that is better able to do so, and also allows us to plan web site improvements.

We may keep your information indefinitely.  Logs of routing information are retained to permit a security investigation and in such cases may be forwarded together with any other relevant information in our possession to law enforcement agencies.  We use this transaction routing information primarily in a statistical summary type format to assess site content and server performance.  We may share this summary information with our business partners when needed.

Optional information is retained in accordance with the records retention schedules at the Library of Virginia.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, any records in our possession at the time of a Freedom of Information Request might be subject to being inspected by or disclosed to members of the public.  However, all identifiable confidential/personal information will be removed prior to releasing the routing information.

Choice to Provide Information

There is no legal requirement for you to provide any information on our website.  However, our web site will not work without routing information and the essential technical information.  Failure of your browser to provide nonessential technical information will not prevent your use of our website but may prevent certain features from working.  Failure to provide optional information will mean that the particular feature or service associated with that part of the web page will not be available to you.
