Information We Collect Automatically (Non-Personally Identifiable Information)
What Do We Collect?
There are certain types of information a website automatically collects as users browse its pages. Like most organizations, Local Electors maintains logs of website activity for administrative purposes, to ensure the safety and security of the site and its users, and for use in improving its sites. Local Electors collects non-personally identifiable data in an aggregated and/or anonymous form. “Aggregated data” refers to general, abstracted information regarding visitors and users of our website. This may include:
• Traffic patterns – information about what pages you visit on our websites and when, how long you remain on each page, the order in which you view pages, and the website or search engine that lead you to our page.
• Which links on our website you click on
• Information about your web browser – the name and version of the browser you use to visit our sites, the capabilities of the browser (e.g., what technologies it supports such as Java or Adobe Flash).
• Information about your computer – many web browsers report the operating system and screen size of the computer that you are using. This information helps the browser and the website communicate to better display the website.
• Internet Protocol (IP) address – this is the address of your computer on the Internet at the time it communicates with our website. This number may or may not be unique. It is sent anytime you connect to another computer on the Internet, including when you browse the Web.
• Some browsers report whether or not you have bookmarked any of the pages of our websites.
Several features of our websites use a technology known as “cookies.” Cookies are small files your web browser stores on your computer. They are primarily used to allow websites to “recognize” you when you return, such as when a website “remembers” you so you need not login each time you visit that website. Most web browsers can be set to reject cookies. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not be able to experience the full functionality of our website.
