This Site collects both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information to improve the usefulness of the online information and various services we offer to our Users.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information (“PII”) is defined as information about an identified or identifiable User. PII includes, but is not limited to, a User’s name, postal address, and email address. In order to use certain features of the Site (e.g., the discussion forums and content/ideas submission), Users must provide certain PII. We will inform you of what PII we require and will only use it for the stated purpose. Additionally, we may ask for additional PII when you provide feedback or comments, or otherwise communicate with us.
All PII collected on the Site will be retained for as long as required, allowed or for the length of time we believe it be useful, but we do not undertake any retention obligations. We may dispose of information in our discretion without notice, subject to applicable law that specifically requires the handling or retention of information. Lib2Gov.Org will take reasonable and prudent precautions to ensure that any PII provided by Users is protected against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
The Site automatically collects and stores non-personally identifiable information on an aggregated, anonymous basis, including, but not limited to: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet; the IP address of a User’s Internet provider’s gateway; and the date and time of access to the Site. Lib2Gov.Org may use the non-personally identifiable data collected to improve the design and content of the Site, as well as to analyze aggregate usage of the Site.
A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. The Site may use cookie and tracking technology for purposes such as gathering information about browser type and operating system, tracking the number of visitors to the Site, and understanding how visitors use the Site. Cookies can also help customize the Site for visitors. PII cannot be collected via cookies and other tracking technology; however, if you provide PII in connection with using certain features of the Site, cookies may be tied to such information. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. Users, however, are advised that doing so may prevent them from utilizing all features of the Site.
