We strive to keep our website streamlined, easy to navigate, and mobile-friendly whenever possible. We want to be accessible! If you have a suggestion to help us out in this regard, please do Contact Us so we can improve.
We also strive to improve in how we serve our fellow community members. This includes the standard use of anonymous data collection through third-party vendor software, such as Google Analytics (uses first-party “cookies”). This doesn’t tell us who you are, but lets us understand how the world in general is interacting with our site. We only want to know who you are if you want us to—that’s what our Contact Us page is for—and we don’t even want to collect anonymous data about someone’s use of our site if they don’t want us to.
For full disclosure, we have enabled Google Analytics Advertising features (uses third-party “cookies”), even though this is usually for sites that advertise products to make a profit (which we don’t), because we hope this will help us better understand the nature of our audience. We don’t want to be intrusive, we just want to best carry out our nonprofit mission in a technology-saturated world. Like with almost every other website you might visit, this involves the use of “cookies”. If you’re not hungry for more cookies, please feel free to explore resources such as the Google Analytics browser opt-out add-on. You can also learn more about how Google uses your information and how to control that use.
If you click on a link on our site to a different site, or to an embedded third-party plugin like a Youtube video or a survey, that third party’s terms then affect how your data is used.
