Personal information our website collects
Our website gathers some data automatically:
- IP address
If you subscribe to our monthly newsletter, we will also ask for:
- Email address
Transition Twin Cities follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this as a part of the hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website so we can make improvements, and gathering demographic information so we get to know our audience better.
Like many other websites, Transition Twin Cities uses ‘cookies’. These cookies are used to store information such as visitors’ preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users’ experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors’ browser type and/or other information.
You can choose to disable cookies through your individual browser options. For more detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers, look at your browsers’ website.
How is your information used?
This website collects data for the purpose of providing useful information and improving our services to our website visitors. The information gathered for our newsletter is gathered by consent and used to provide you with the newsletter you requested. We ask for neighborhood information because, on rare occasions, we may do a targeted mailing to people living in a particular community. For example, if someone wanted to start a Transition group in your community, we would inform you of that opportunity.
How do we secure personal information?
Generic website information is stored with the website analytics service Google Analytics and our website host. Our email database is stored with the service provider MailChimp. If you believe your security has been compromised, please notify us immediately using the Contact form.
Transition Twin Cities does not sell or share personal information or its mailing list. If a relevant organization wishes to use our mailing list and its purpose is consistent with the purpose of our organization, an email will be sent directly from Transition Twin Cities. Your email address will not be shared.
