Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting GeorgiaForward‘s website and reviewing our Privacy Policy. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you of what kinds of information we may gather about you when you visit our website and how we may use that information. This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for www.georgiaforward.org.

Automatic Data Collection

Like most Web servers on the Internet, our servers collect and store all of the information that your web browser sends when it requests a web page, including:

the name, domain, and numerical internet address of the “host” computer (typically a computer belonging to your Internet Service Provider and not your personal computer) from which you access the Internet. For example, your host computer’s name and its numerical address

  • the date and time you accessed our site
  • the Internet address of the web page that you came from
  • the page you requested from our site and the number of characters sent to your computer
  • the information your web browser software sends as its so-called “User Agent,” which typically identifies the browser software and may also indicate the operating system and type of CPU used in your personal computer

GeorgiaForward may periodically summarize and analyze these log files to learn how visitors use content on the site. This information is used to allocate resources effectively and to improve the content, organization and performance of our site. This process does not collect, store or use personally-identifying information such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address.

Collection and Release of Gathered Information

It is GeorgiaForward’s policy to collect only that personally-identifying information (such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number) that visitors to GeorgiaForward’s website knowingly and voluntarily provide by completing one of the forms on the website.

GeorgiaForward is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. GeorgiaForward does not collect, save or store such personally-identifying information from our visitors who just browse through our website without completing and e-mailing any forms, and does not attempt to identify users or share user information with any parties outside of GeorgiaForward, except as described above, in the event of a suspected attempt to deliberately circumvent our system’s security with the intent to gain unauthorized access to or to do physical damage (for example, an attack by hackers), and as required in the course of officially authorized law enforcement investigations.

Security

This website employs industry-standard security measures designed to protect against loss, misuse or alteration of information you provide to us through this website. However, GeorgiaForward is not responsible for unauthorized access to information by hackers or others who have obtained such access through illegal means.

Electronic Mail

When you send us personal identifying information via e-mail (that is, in a message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a form that e-mails us this information), we use it to respond to your requests. We may forward your e-mail to other employees of GeorgiaForward or Central Atlanta Progress, Inc. who are better able to answer your questions. We do not retain or distribute lists of e-mail addresses to any parties outside of GeorgiaForward or Central Atlanta Progress. In no event, do we distribute lists of e-mail addresses to any outside parties. Information collected via e-mail will be retained at our discretion in a directly readable form as long as necessary to complete our response.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of information stored on your hard drive that tells our server that you have returned to this web site. Cookies do not gather information—instead, they may store information you provide. For instance, if you visit our web site and provide us with your name and email address, a cookie is used to retain this information. GeorgiaForward uses cookies for anonymous visitor tracking. GeorgiaForward’s web server assigns each visitor a unique numerical ID. All requests for pages are tagged with that ID, and by analyzing log files, we can determine how many unique visitors used the site. Although these cookies remain on your hard drive indefinitely, you may choose to delete or disable them by changing your internet browser preferences. You can also set your internet browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, and you can decide whether to accept or reject the cookie.

We do not know or seek the identity of a person based on the numerical ID. The cookies used on this website do not contain any personal information about visitors, nor are they used to look up personal information about visitors. Even if you have entered information about yourself in one of our registration forms, that personal information is not matched to the cookie data.

Links to Other Websites

This website may contain links to other websites that are not operated or maintained by GeorgiaForward and are not covered by this Privacy Statement. Visitors should be aware that the links on this website are provided only for your convenience. GeorgiaForward has no control over, makes no promises or warranties of any kind with regard to, and has no responsibility or liability for, the content of any other websites or their privacy policies, their use of cookies, or the way they collect, save, store or use information. You should review the privacy policy of each website you visit.

Changes To This Privacy Statement

By using this site, you signify your agreement GeorgiaForward’s privacy policy. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of this policy at any time without advance notice. Your continued use of this website following changes to these terms means you accept those changes.
