Information We Collect & How We Use It
We don’t make money advertising to you or collect data to advertise to you. Any tracking we do at AgeSpan is to make our website function as efficiently as possible. To give you the best possible experience, we collect information from your interactions with our Services. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address when you sign up for our e-newsletter and is stored unless you opt out). Other information we collect based on actions you take while using agespan.org, such as what pages you view (including how much of a given page and for how long) and your use of features. This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information (how you got to a particular page).
We use this information to:
- provide, test, improve, promote, and personalize the Services
- fight spam and other forms of abuse
- generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use the Services
Individuals who sign up to receive AgeSpan communications, fill out a form, make a donation, etc. voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes, such as invitations to agency events, fundraising opportunities, or agency announcements. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time if you do not wish to receive our . Information collected when you voluntarily donate through our website is stored for future communication and solicitation purposes, unless you opt out or donate anonymously.
AgeSpan uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer www.agespan.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.
AgeSpan.com uses “cookie” messages to automatically help provide better services. They remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on what you’ve done and told us before. The “cookie” is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. Cookies let us take you to the information and features you’re particularly interested in. They also let us track your usage of www.agespan.org, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You can reject cookies or cancel them by instructing your web browser accordingly.
How Your Information May Be Used
We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service; to send email alerts to you – if you opt in; to answer your requests; to process referral and other online forms; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time. We may also use your information to track visitors to our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.
