We col­lect sev­er­al types of infor­ma­tion from and about users of our web­site, includ­ing information:

We col­lect this information:

Usage Details, IP Address­es, and Cook­ies and Oth­er Technologies

As you nav­i­gate through and inter­act with our web­site, we may auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lect cer­tain infor­ma­tion about your equip­ment, brows­ing actions and pat­terns. The infor­ma­tion we col­lect auto­mat­i­cal­ly is sta­tis­ti­cal data and does not iden­ti­fy any indi­vid­ual. It helps us improve our web­site and deliv­er bet­ter and more per­son­al­ized future ser­vices by enabling us to:

We do not col­lect per­son­al infor­ma­tion auto­mat­i­cal­ly, but we may tie this infor­ma­tion to per­son­al infor­ma­tion about you that we col­lect from oth­er sources or that you pro­vide to us. The tech­nolo­gies we use for this auto­mat­ic data col­lec­tion may include:

Cook­ies (or brows­er cook­ies). Cook­ies are a tech­nol­o­gy of web brows­er soft­ware that allows web servers to rec­og­nize the com­put­er used to access a web­site. A cook­ie is a small file placed on the hard dri­ve of your com­put­er. You may refuse to accept brows­er cook­ies by acti­vat­ing the appro­pri­ate set­ting on your brows­er. Unless you have adjust­ed your brows­er set­ting so that it will refuse cook­ies, our sys­tem will issue cook­ies when you direct your brows­er to our website.

Flash Cook­ies. Cer­tain fea­tures of our web­site may use local stored objects (or Flash cook­ies) to col­lect and store infor­ma­tion about your pref­er­ences and nav­i­ga­tion to, from and on our web­site. Flash cook­ies are not man­aged by the same brows­er set­tings used for brows­er cook­ies. For infor­ma­tion about man­ag­ing your pri­va­cy and secu­ri­ty set­tings for Flash cook­ies, see Choic­es About How We Use and Dis­close Your Infor­ma­tion.”

Web Bea­cons. Pages of our web­site and our emails may con­tain small elec­tron­ic files known as web bea­cons (also referred to as clear gifs, pix­el tags and sin­gle-pix­el gifs) that per­mit us, for exam­ple, to count spe­cif­ic vis­i­tors who have vis­it­ed cer­tain pages or opened and clicked an email. The infor­ma­tion we col­lect from these bea­cons is sent to our mar­ket­ing automa­tion and email mar­ket­ing ser­vice called Act-On (www​.act​-on​.com).

Choic­es About How We Use and Dis­close Your Information

We strive to pro­vide you with choic­es regard­ing the per­son­al infor­ma­tion you pro­vide to us. We have cre­at­ed mech­a­nisms to pro­vide you with the fol­low­ing con­trol over your information:

Track­ing Tech­nolo­gies and Adver­tis­ing. You can set your brows­er to refuse all or some brows­er cook­ies, or to alert you when cook­ies are being sent. To learn how you can man­age your Flash cook­ie set­tings, vis­it the Flash play­er set­tings page on Adobe’s web­site. If you dis­able or refuse cook­ies, please note that some parts of this site may then be inac­ces­si­ble or not func­tion properly.

This web­site uses Google Ana­lyt­ics to track web­site activ­i­ty and vis­i­tor behav­ior. If you want to opt-out of being tracked by Google Ana­lyt­ics, you may use the Google Ana­lyt­ics Opt-out Brows­er Add-on. Google Ana­lyt­ics also col­lects data about vis­its to the web­site via the Dou­bleClick cook­ie and Flood­light tags. This infor­ma­tion is being used to pro­vide demo­graph­ic and inter­est data about vis­i­tors to the web­site and to tar­get online dis­play adver­tise­ments on third-par­ty web­sites. Using Google’s Ads Set­tings, vis­i­tors can opt-out of Google Ana­lyt­ics for Dis­play Adver­tis­ing and cus­tomize Google Dis­play Net­work ads.

Pro­mo­tion­al Offers from the Com­mu­ni­ty. If you do not wish to have your con­tact infor­ma­tion used by the Com­pa­ny to pro­mote our own ser­vices, you can fol­low the link to unsub­scribe from mail­ing lists at the bot­tom of email com­mu­ni­ca­tion; send an e‑mail to info@​smithvillage.​org stat­ing your request; call 773−474−7303 and ask to be removed from mar­ket­ing lists.

We may not accom­mo­date a request to change infor­ma­tion if we believe the change would vio­late any law or legal require­ment, or cause the infor­ma­tion to be incorrect.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion via the inter­net is not com­plete­ly secure.
