Privacy Policy

EFFECTIVE DATE: 2023-02-03

This Privacy Policy ("Policy") describes how the Northeastern Forest Fire Protection Commission ("NFFPC," "we," "us," or "our") collects, uses, and discloses information that we obtain about visitors to our website (the "Site") and the services ("Services") available through our Site.

By using this Site and its Services, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Policy.

Types of Information We Collect

Routine information. The Site tracks basic information about its users. This includes, but is not limited to IP addresses, browser details, timestamps, and referring pages. None of this information can personally identify specific users of this Site or its Services. The information is tracked for routine administration and maintenance purposes.

Personal information from registrations. If registering for a course, meeting, or similar event, the Site will log personal information that is voluntarily provided by users. This information will never be used for advertising or tracking purposes except to enhance the user's use of our Services.

Our Use of Cookies

Where necessary, this website uses cookies to store information about a user's preferences and history in order to better serve the user and/or present the user with customized content. We use cookies for functional purposes only (i.e. to support the proper working of our Site and Services) and do not use cookies for advertising or profiling purposes.

Cookies. Cookies are small blocks of data created by a web server while a user is visiting a website. This data is stored locally on your device. Cookies are placed on the device used to access a website, and more than one cookie may be placed on a user's device during a session. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Site and Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at our Site and Service. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.

  • Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your device when you close your browser or turn off your device. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Site and Services. This allows us to determine if you have permission to view or use certain content, after you have logged in, as you move through our Site and Services.
  • Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device after you have closed your browser or turned off your device. We use persistent cookies to help make navigating the site more convenient (e.g., storing your language choice) or to speed up the log-in process.

Disabling Cookies. You may disable cookies through your web browser's settings. The specifics for how to do this vary from browser to browser. Please read your web browser's documentation for instructions to disable cookies for your specific browser. If you disable cookies, some features on this Site may malfunction or not function at all.

Third-Party Links

Our Site and Services may contain links to third-party websites. Any access to, and use of, such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party websites. We are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites.

Google reCAPTCHA

This Site is protected against bots via Google reCAPTCHA. As such, the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply when submitting forms (e.g., logging in) through our Site and Services.


We have implemented reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee security and aren't 100% secure.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

This Policy is current as of the Effective Date established above. The Policy may change over time. Please check back periodically for any potential changes.

We reserve the right to update or change this Policy at any time. If we make any substantial changes to this Policy, we will place a prominent notice on this Site.
