Your privacy is very important to us. At Holmes Run Acres Recreation Association (HRARA) we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, serve you, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, HRARA collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. HRARA’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how HRARA’s visitors use this website. From time to time, HRARA may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website.

HRARA also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. HRARA only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to HRARA’s website choose to interact with HRARA in ways that require HRARA to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HRARA gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Or for those who wish to receive the newsletter via email, we collect their emails. In each case, HRARA collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with HRARA. HRARA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

HRARA may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, HRARA may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. HRARA may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, HRARA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

HRARA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HRARA’s behalf or to provide services available at HRARA’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. HRARA will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, HRARA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when HRARA believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HRARA, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the HRARA website and have supplied your email address, HRARA may occasionally send you an email to solicit your feedback or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with HRARA. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. HRARA takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. HRARA uses cookies to help HRARA identify and track visitors, their usage of HRARA’s website, and their website access preferences. HRARA visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using HRARA’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of HRARA’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If HRARA, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that HRARA goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of HRARA may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, HRARA may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in HRARA’s sole discretion. HRARA encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
