COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of information about you, your device, and your online activities some of which may be personally identifiable, which we have grouped together as follows (collectively “Personal Information”):
Information You Provide. McClendon Center collects Personal Information when you communicate with us through email or our online form including your name, email address, and any information you voluntarily provide in the communication.
Pixel Tags. Pixel tags (a.k.a. clear gifs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, which allow us to monitor the use of our Website and to deliver banner advertisements to you about our products and services as you browse the Internet. Pixel tags generally work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. You cannot decline pixel tags; however, if you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous visit. In addition, we use pixel tags in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
Third-Party Cookies. We may engage third-party service providers, including Google, to serve ads to you about our products and services as you browse the Internet. These third-party providers may use their own cookies tags to track your online activities and purchases in order to deliver targeted advertising based on your interests. You can learn more about Google’s advertising cookies and opt-out options by visiting http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/types/.
Analytics. We may use one or more third-party analytics programs including, but not limited to, Google Analytics to help analyze how users utilize the Website. Google Analytics does not store any Personal Information. Google Analytics uses a cookie containing an anonymous identifier to distinguish users and to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website (including IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is used to create statistical reports on user activity for McClendon Center.

Usage data is typically non-personally identifying information or is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. If you have voluntarily disclosed personally identifiable information to us, some or all of the Usage Information may be linked to that information. When you access and use the Website from your mobile devices, we receive Usage Data from the mobile device you use to access the Website.
