Web Server Log FilesThe Stanley Foundation's Web server, like most servers, collects information about visitors and stores them in log files. This information is gathered and stored each time the site is accessed. This applies to all of The Stanley Foundation's Web servers. The Stanley Foundation may utilize multiple Web servers to better serve you.
Information Not Collected
Most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use a dynamic form of assigning IP Addresses. This means that a visitor often has a different IP Address each time he or she visits the Common Ground site. Many other ISPs (such as AOL) use Proxy Servers that further protect the anonymity of visitors.
How Information Is UsedThe Stanley Foundation uses the information gathered in our log files to help us understand and evaluate our audience. By analyzing our logs, we can better understand which features work well and which features may not. It also helps us evaluate how well we are reaching our audience. The information gathered is NEVER shared with any other company or organization. It is used exclusively by The Stanley Foundation.
CookiesSometimes, The Stanley Foundation's sites use a "cookie" to more accurately track your visit. This is a small file stored on your computer that uniquely identifies your machine. No personal information is stored in a "cookie." If you do not wish to accept a "cookie" from The Stanley Foundation's servers, you can adjust the settings in your browser accordingly. Refusing to accept a "cookie" does not affect how the site works.
E-mail FormsIn some sections of our site, we may ask for personal information, such as your name, mailing address, and e-mail address. If you are under 18 years of age, you must have a parent's consent to provide this information. Personal information gathered in any section will not be shared with or sold to organizations outside The Stanley Foundation. Personal information is used for identification purposes, and mailing and e-mail addresses are used to provide a timely reply or respond to a request (i.e., for a transcript). No personal information is required to send us anonymous comments.
HOWEVER YOUR COMMENTS MAY BE EDITED AND PUBLISHED ON OUR WEB SITES OR QUOTED ON THE AIR DURING RADIO BROADCASTS. YOUR FIRST NAME AND GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION MAY BE USED IN CONNECTION WITH THE COMMENT.
