Active Information Collection
Like many websites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email.
Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you such as your full name, address, email address, phone number, and so on).
Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as resource downloads). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what for.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags and navigational data collection.
This site uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non- personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.
A “cookie” is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.
“Session” cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on websites and to collect aggregate statistical information.
“Persistent” cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g., passwords), helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing the website based on your preferences.
You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it.
You can also set your browser to block the placing of cookies at all, but you should realize that this can limit the use of our website or services. You can find more information about cookies at www.cookiecentral.com/faq.
If you elect to download certain resources, we collect your email address. If you wish to unsubscribe from our email list, you can do so at any moment as indicated in every email you receive or by contacting us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Access and Correction
To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us about any incorrect information. We will update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
