We are committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors and users while they interact with the content and services on this site (www.commongroundcoalition.org, the “Site”). This Privacy Policy applies to the Site only.  It does not apply to other web sites to which we may link. We do gather certain types of information about our users, so we want you to understand what information we collect about you, how we collect it, how that information is used, and how you can control our disclosure of it.  You agree that your use of the Site signifies your assent to this Privacy Policy.

1. Information Collected

We collect two (2) types of information from you: 1) information that you voluntarily supply in form fields on this Site (e.g. through a voluntary registration process, or sign-up for eMail); and 2) information that may be derived through automated tracking mechanisms.

2. Cookies

Our site uses “cookies” and other web tracking technologies. Cookies enable us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to sign in repeatedly. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. If a user’s system is idle for a defined time, the cookie may expire, and if so, forcing the user to sign in again to continue their session. This prevents unauthorized access to the user’s information while they are away from their computer.

You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you may need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the Site.
