The types of information may include your computer’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, the date and time you access our site, the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our site; and the various pages that you visit while on our site.
Personally-Identifiable Information – We will not collect any personally-identifiable information about you (e.g. your name, e-mail address, contact information, etc.) without prior contact and authorization, and will not collect any information unless you choose to provide it to us. This information may be shared within our organization for the purposes of responding to any comments or questions you submit and/or providing follow-up information about our organization.
Publicly Sharing Your Information – Rachel Carson Homestead Association often receives information from Web site visitors who have successfully participated in our programs and/or employed our resources. In certain instances, for instance, on the Rachel Carson Legacy Challenge commitment page, we would like to publicly share the comments and stories we receive by posting this information on our Web site. We will not, however, publicly share ANY information we receive on our Web site without first receiving the express consent of the individual who submitted the information. Furthermore, we will not post information in any way that specifically identifies the sender of that information unless the sender approves it.
Children’s Information – Rachel Carson Homestead Association encourages parents and guardians to visit this part of our site with their children. We respect the privacy of children, and do not collect any more personal information than reasonably necessary to enable them to participate in the activities we offer at our Web site. We do not have any agreements with outside organizations to collect personal information at our site. The information we collect from children is used to respond to children’s specific requests to participate in activities such as:
- subscription to a newsletter
- expressing an opinion
- to tailor/customize the visitor’s experience at our site
We do not share children’s personal information with anyone other than those who provide support for the internal operations of the Web site and our agents (e.g., contractors who provide fulfillment services or technical support to the Web site). Parents can review the information that we have collected from their children online, prevent the further use or maintenance of such information, or direct the deletion of their children’s personal information by e-mailing us at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
