What personal information does Longworth gather from me and how is this information used?
When browsing our site, you are not required to provide any personal information unless and until you choose to sign up for one of our e-mail services. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children (meaning those younger than thirteen years of age).
Logging of Session Data
We may log generic information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which we call “session data.” Session data consists of things such as IP address, operating system and type of browser software being used and the activities conducted by the user while on our site. An IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet, such as our web servers, know where to send data back to the user, such as the pages of the site the user wishes to view. We collect session data because it helps us analyze such things as what items visitors are likely to click on most, the way visitors are clicking through the site, how many visitors are surfing to various pages on the site, how long visitors to the site are staying and how often they are visiting. It also helps us diagnose problems with our servers and lets us better administer our systems. It is possible to determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the approximate geographic location of his or her point of connectivity. We may also use some session data, such as the pages you visited on our site, to send you e-mail messages focused on destinations that you may be interested in, unless you had previously opted out of receiving such messages.
