Connecticut Humanities respects and protects the privacy of our website visitors and does not collect personally identifiable information about you that you do not voluntarily and expressly provide. In addition, we do not engage in any commercial or marketing activities with respect to our on-line users.
Here is how we handle information about your visit to our website.
Information Collected and Stored Automatically
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will automatically gather and store certain non-personal information about your visit. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
- The Internet domain (for example, “xcompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account, or “your school.edu” if you connect from a university) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web) from which you access our web site;
- The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
- The date and time you access our site;
- The pages you visit; and
- If you linked to the ConnecticutHistory.org web site from another web site, the address of that web site.
We use this information for statistical purposes only to help us better understand how visitors use our site, such as numbers of visitors, how they navigate through the site, and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits.
If You Send Us Personal Information
We may retain personal information you voluntarily provide to us, such as email address, name, and similar information in order to correspond with you, manage your account, or process a financial transaction.
E-mails and Web Forms
Personally identifying information that you provide by e-mails or web forms will be used only for such purposes as are described at the point of collection (such as to send information to you or to respond to your questions or comments). If you provide contact information, our staff may contact you to clarify your comment or question. We do not provide any personal information to third parties unless required to do so by law.
