Q: What information is collected by ConservationMinnesota.org and how is it used?
A: When you visit ConservationMinnesota.org, the site’s server collects traffic information through standard Web logs. The Web logs detail information such as how the site visitor navigates through the site, the length of visit, and the documents the visitor downloads. This information cannot be used to identify the visitor and is used only to process traffic analysis reports to determine site performance levels.
The site may also utilize optional interactive forms and surveys that will allow ConservationMinnesota.org to work with you to provide additional requested information. This information is considered “opt-in” and is completely optional and to the discretion of the site visitor. Any collected opt-in information may be used for future marketing outreach. Opt-in information will always be generated from ConservationMinnesota.org and you will always have the right to opt-out of future marketing outreach. Your personal data will never be sold, rented, traded or given to any outside party.
The site’s Web logs anonymously record non-identifying information on operating systems, browser types and domain and Internet Protocol categories in order to properly manage and optimize ConservationMinnesota.org. This ensures that ConservationMinnesota.org provides site visitors with the best possible Web experience.
Q: Will information be disclosed to outside parties?
A: Personal information collected by ConservationMinnesota.org will not be sold, rented, traded or given to any third party for commercial purposes. All collected information is subject to the laws of the United States. The release of customer/site visitor information will occur only when such release is reasonably necessary (a) to comply with applicable laws; (b) to enforce or apply the terms of any user agreement; or, (c) when specifically requested to disclose the information by the site visitor.
Q: How can I update my information or opt-out of marketing programs?
A: Simply e-mail support@ConservationMinnesota.org and type UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line to opt-out or unsubscribe to any e-mail or marketing outreach programs or to have your information deleted from the site’s database.
Q: How long will personal data be held by ConservationMinnesota.org?
A: Information will be held by ConservationMinnesota.org indefinitely unless otherwise specified by the site administrator and/or site visitor.
