Collection of Information

The IT History Society website does not collect personally identifying data, such as names, addresses, email addresses, and the like, except when voluntarily submitted by website visitors. Information collected from visitors of the ITHS website is used to make our website more useful by helping us learn about the number of visitors to our site, the areas they access and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits. We may compile and report aggregate statistics about our web visitors — such as numbers, traffic patterns, and related site information — but these statistics include no personally identifying information.

Disclosure of information

The IT History Society (ITHS) will not disclose or share any personal information you provide to ITHS with any other third party without your permission, except if requested to do so in accordance with a court order, subpoena, or similar legal order, and in the event such disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of ITHS, its visitors, and other third parties. ITHS will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others without your permission.

The IT History Society (ITHS) requires visitors to opt-in to receive information from ITHS or from our partners or vendors via email. If you choose, you may opt-out from further email communication from ITHS. Also you may request to have your contact information updated or amended.

As contact lists may be created several weeks in advance, please allow sufficient time for your request to be processed.


The IT History Society (ITHS) website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Attempts to gain access to restricted portions of this website or to this website's technical infrastructure, for whatever purpose, are logged and may prompt commencement of an investigation by ITHS staff, or local, federal (U.S.) or international law-enforcement agencies. Various provisions exist to monitor activities which could be deemed suspicious in terms of network or site security. In cases where such provisions are activated, you should have no expectation of privacy.
