During your visit the computer’s network IP number is stored. The IP in anonymized by removing the last octet. The IP will not give us an exact location, but will provide a general geographical location of site visitors. This is valuable to assist in the understanding of languages and needs of the visitor as well as the interest in our program.
We will store the collected data through our next website redesign project which is slated to be completed June 2020. After the redesign project we will keep records for up to two years.
Google and Hotjar have methods to remove your IP from the analytical reports. Make a request by sending your IP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to our analytical data sprocessors, our server logs will collect IP information. The logs are critical in the protection of our servers from malicious activity. This information is stored for approximately six months from your visit.
