Here at edmontonautismsociety.org we care about your privacy. This policy page describes what personal information we may collect and how we may use it. In brief, there is nothing on this site that will collect sensitive personal information such as your name, unless you choose to give it to us.
Routine Information Collection
Our web server, like all servers, will track basic, non-personal information about our visitors. This information might include, for example, IP addresses, browser details, timestamps and referring pages. It’s very unlikely that any of this information could identify specific visitors to this site, although law enforcement agencies might be able to track a person down by their IP address if they really wanted to. But the purpose of this is simply statistical tracking that our hosting company does for routine administration and maintenance purposes.
Cookies enable you to interact with websites, for example by submitting comments and other forms, logging in, or seeing ads relating to your interests on sites like Facebook.
You can change your browser settings to disable cookies any time you want, but disabling cookies for all sites is not recommended as it will interfere with your use of the internet. For example, you won’t be able to use a shopping cart if you have all cookies disabled. The best option is to disable or enable cookies on a per-site basis. If you don’t disable cookies, we will assume that you consent to their use. Consult your browser documentation for instructions on how to block cookies and other tracking mechanisms. (Browsers are applications like Internet Explorer, Chrome or Safari, that allow you to access the internet.)
