  1. INFORMATION YOU GIVE TO US: From our website you may send email to us, make requests/inquiries, submit articles or photos or events for publication on the website, sign up for newsletters or email notifications, leave comments, download articles, register for a course or event, or view and print information. The information that you give to us may include your name, physical address, email address, phone number, dates of service, and other demographic information. By giving us this information, you consent to your information being collected, used, disclosed, and stored by us, only as described in our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
  2. EMAIL INFORMATION: We never sell lists or email addresses. When you register for services and provide us with your email address, we may use a Distribution List and Email service, such as Mailchimp, to communicate with you. You can read Mailchimp’s Privacy Policy for more details.
  3. INFORMATION FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES: We may get information about how and when you use the Services. This information may include your IP address, geographic location, access dates and times, length of visit, page views, and actions taken by you within the website.
  4. COOKIES: A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie, is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while the user is browsing that website. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the website of the user’s previous activity.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. You may turn off cookies that have been placed on your computer by following the instructions on your browser, but if you block cookies, it may result in blocking our Services. Our websites utilize a variety of third party tools and services that collect cookies.

For example, our websites are built on the WordPress Content Management System. WordPress uses cookies, or tiny pieces of information stored on your computer, to verify who you are. There are cookies for logged in users and for commenters. WordPress uses cookies for these two purposes:
Registered members need a cookie to be able to log in. This is ‘strictly necessary’ as WordPress won’t work without it. This cookie will apply to people who have created a registered account for use of our website:
Visitors who leave a comment on website will also have a cookie set on their computer. This is not “strictly necessary” as it’s a user preference. If you do not leave a comment, this particular WordPress cookie will not be set on your computer. If you choose to leave a comment, three types of cookies are set:   comment_author

WordPress commenter cookies are set to expire a little under one year from the time they’re set.

Our websites may also use Google Analytics to track how how users interact with website content. Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to recall what a user has done on previous pages / interactions with the website. Google Analytics does not store any personal information about website users. Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on user interactions on your website. These cookies are used to store non-personally identifiable information. Browsers do not share first-party cookies across domains. Read the Google Analytics privacy document for more details.

  1. WEB BEACONS: Email distribution services, such as Mailchimp, may include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails they deliver for us. Web beacons collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details. Web Beacons are used by the email distribution service to create reports for us about who has or hasn’t opened emails or clicked links. Mailchimp Privacy Policy indicates that they may also collect and review that information.
