Like most website operators, NWRI collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, including but not limited to, browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. NWRI’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how its website users interact with its website. From time to time, we may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of NWRI’s website. NWRI also collects potentially personally identifying information, including but not limited to, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://nwri-usa.org blog posts. We only disclose user and/or commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below.
Gathering Personally Identifying Information
