2. INFORMATION COLLECTED
- a. Website Information
- i. Cookies
- LJAF may use “cookies” on or in connection with the Giving Library website to maintain information. A cookie is a very small text document or image file, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. LJAF may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Giving Library website. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser.
- When you visit the Giving Library website, your computer may be asked for permission to employ the use of a session or persistent cookie. The Giving Library website will then send a cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but—to protect your privacy—your browser only permits the Giving Library website to access the cookies it has already sent to you and not the cookies sent to you by other websites.
- Most web browsers can be adjusted to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with the opportunity to refuse that cookie. However, refusing a cookie may, in some cases, preclude you from using, or negatively impact the display or function of certain areas or features of the Giving Library website.
- ii. Clear GIFs
- LJAF may also use “Clear GIFs” (aka “web beacons” or “pixel tags”) or similar technologies in the Giving Library website and/or in its communications with you. A Clear GIF is typically a one-pixel, transparent image located on a web page or in an email or other type of message, which helps us to verify an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or message. LJAF uses information provided from Clear GIFs to enable more accurate reporting and better the Giving Library for its users.
- iii. IP Address & Clickstream Data
- LJAF collects information regarding the identity of your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. LJAF uses this information for internal system monitoring and to administer the Giving Library website. This information may also be used to gather and aggregate broad demographic information and profile data.
- Identification of your IP address cannot be uploaded to the Giving Library website and is only held internally by LJAF. That is, no other user is able to learn your IP address through any permitted use of the Giving Library website.
- i. Cookies
