This Policy is Part of Our Terms of Use

This Policy is part of the Terms of Use that govern your use of this Site. A link to our Terms of Use is provided at the bottom of each page of this Site.

Privacy Notices

This Policy may be supplemented or amended from time to time by "privacy notices" posted on this Site. These privacy notices provide a level of detail that we cannot provide in this more general description of our privacy practices. For example, certain pages of this Site may contain privacy notices providing details about the information we collect on those pages, why we need that information, and choices you may have about the ways we use that information.

Types of Information We Collect

The information we collect through this Site falls into two categories: (1) data that you manually supply (by using a keyboard or touch screen), some of which may be Personal Information, and (2) non-personally identifiable information we collect automatically. In this Policy “Personal Information” refers to information that identifies you personally, alone or in combination with other information available to us. Examples of Personal Information include your name, address, and e-mail address.

Information You Manually Supply. We collect the information you and others manually supply (by using a keyboard or touch screen) when you use this Site. Some of the information you supply may be Personal Information. For example, you may supply Personal Information such as your name and contact information when you sign up for outreach education, register for an event, or contact us with questions.

Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser. This information typically includes your IP address, the identity of your Internet service provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings.

An "IP address" is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. It is used to identify your computer’s "location" in cyberspace, so that the information you request can be delivered to you. IP addresses do not include your name, e-mail address or other information that identifies you personally, but in some cases, they can be used to identify you. For example, we may link your IP address to account information that identifies you personally. We may also provide your IP address to our third-party service provider who can use it to identify you. In addition, if, we suspect fraud or a threat to the security of this Site, we may share our server logs—which contain users’ IP addresses—with the appropriate investigative authorities, who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.

Cookies and Similar Technologies. We use "cookies" and other web technologies to collect information and support certain features of this Site. For example, we may use these technologies to:

  • to support the features and functionality of this Site—for example, to save you the trouble of reentering information already in our database or to prompt the settings you established on previous visits; and
  • to personalize your experience when you use this Site.

Generally, the information we collect using these web technologies does not identify you personally. However, we may link the information we collect using these web technologies to other information that identifies you personally.

Generally, if you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer.
