What You Knowingly Share with Us
Our Site collects any personal information you knowingly and manually provide to us, such as when you register with MNperspectives.com to receive one of our print or PDF downloads, e-newsletters, podcasts, video recordings or other type of content to be delivered to you electronically, and/or register to attend a Minnesota Perspectives produced or co-produced/supported event. Such information typically includes your name and email address. We may also request additional personal/demographic information such as your occupation, title or company size, industry and location.
What Else You Share with Us, and How
Log Files: Like many other Web sites, MNperspectives.com makes use of log files. These files merely log visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses do not include your name, email address or other personal information. However, an IP address is the identifier assigned to your computer when you access the Internet and marketers, as well as others on the Internet, will sometimes map where and when an IP address visits various sites on the Internet. This is one reason why you will find ads showing up on your computer related to something you recently looked at while searching on the Internet. We may capture your IP address for record keeping purposes, and to continually strive to better serve you. We do not sell IP address information to third parties. In the event of any suspected inappropriate or criminal activity, we may share IP addresses with the appropriate authorities.
Social Network Sites: From our Site you may want to share with or access social networks and sharing tools operated by third parties to share with others something of potential interest to them. Such third-party sites may be collecting information through their own tracking and privacy policies.
Though our site is generally intended for adults and teens over the age of thirteen, we believe it is important to provide added protection for children online. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity. MNperspectives.com does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian believes that MNperspectives.com has in its database the personally identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately (using the contact information below) and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
If you have any questions about this policy or our privacy practices, please contact us at Info@MNperspectives.com or by mail to: Minnesota Perspectives, P.O. Box 685, Excelsior, MN 55331.
