What Information We Collect
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
When you enter the Website, information is gathered from your Internet browser. This information may include your IP address and log files (which allows us to determine the identity of your Internet Service Provider), your operating system and the type of browser software that you are using to access the Website. All information obtained from your browser is anonymous, and no personal information is ever transmitted to us in this manner.
The Website may use a standard technology called a “cookie,” or web beacons, or other similar technology to collect information about how you use the Website. Cookies reside on your computer and help the Website recognize your computer’s browser as a previous visitor. On occasion, the Website may also set a “session cookie” which helps us administer the Website. The session cookie expires when you close your browser and does not retain any information about you after it expires.
We may collect information about your computer or mobile phone, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type, for system administration and in order to create reports. We may also collect demographic information such as location, language, gender, age, and interests in order to create reports, leading to website content improvements. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
GLIDE uses Google Analytics in order to better understand how users interact with the Website. Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions, as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use the Website. We then use the information provided by Google Analytics to compile reports and to make changes to the Website.
Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are used to store information, such as the time that the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before and what site referred the visitor to the web page.
Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit the Website – for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
If you use a standard web browser, you should be able to modify your browser preference to provide you with choices relating to cookies; for example, you should have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may be unable to use certain Website services (e.g., those services that require you to log on to the Website). For more information on modifying your browser preference, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser.
