Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it.

Who we are

This Site is operated by The Daguerreian Society, whose business address is PO Box #306
Cecil, PA 15321- 0306.

Any correspondence regarding the use of your personal information may be sent to that mail address, to the email address, or to the Site using the Contact form.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We may collect the following information about you:

  • Information you provide when you contact us by email, via social media, SMS or telephone.
  • Information you provide when you fill in a form on the Site.
  • Site registration or membership information.
  • Your participation and contributions to discussion boards or social media functions on the Site.

  • Information you provide when reporting a problem or requesting Site support.

The information you provide us may include your name, member name, address, email address, social media accounts, telephone number, payment information, electronic images, and comments.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

When you submit a Contact form on the web site, the personal information, questionnaire responses, and/or message contents will be recorded on the Site and will be accessed by representatives of The Daguerreian Society. We may keep information submitted through a Contact form perpetually, but do not use such information for unrelated marketing activities, and do not share it with third parties for any purpose.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Links to third party websites

The Site, and our electronic communications, may from time to time contain links to third party web sites. If you follow any such a link, note that you are leaving the Site and accessing another web site that will have its own privacy policies. The Daguerreian Society does not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


The Site may use third party analytics services in order to improve the functionality and performance of the Site. This allows us to provide a high quality web site experience.

Who we share your data with


How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information (except for user passwords).

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

Any correspondence regarding the use of your personal information may be sent to the physical mail address listed above, to the email address, or to the Site using this contact form.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Personal membership data such as names and contact information, including data available through members search or member profiles, are only available to members when logged in to the Site using the member's secret password. Except for certain basic membership data, each member individually opts in or out to sharing personal data with other members.

What data breach procedures we have in place

What third parties we receive data from

With the possible exception of analytics relating to Site use or performance, the Site does not receive data about its users from third parties.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

The Site does not perform any automated decision making. All changes and decisions are made by humans.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

The Daguerreian Society does not understand itself to be a member of a regulated industry or to be subject to any additional privacy laws that we might be obligated to disclose.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Any material changes we make to this Privacy Policy in the future will be posted on this page or, where appropriate, by email.
