The Short Version
The stuff below looks pretty complicated, but here it is in a nutshell: at HikeWNC.info, we don’t see or store any personally identifiable information about you ourselves. But our advertisers on ad networks might.
The Long Version
The Stuff We Do Keep: Regular Log Files
Like many other Web sites, we make use of log files and analytics software. The information inside the log files is not personally identifiable. It includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, the type of browser you use, the Internet Service Provider (ISP) you’re coming from, a date/time stamp, which web site you came from and what’s the last page you view, and the things you clicked on while you were here.
We use this to analyze trends, administer the site and make sure it keeps running smoothly, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not things that would let us figure out who you are (“personally identifiable”).
We use a small cookie to track which ratings you’ve submitted for hikes, rides, and trails, so that you don’t accidentally rate the same thing multiple times.
The Stuff We Don’t Keep: Cookies and Web Beacons
