How do you use the information I might provide you?

All email communications from NDRI will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of further email communication.
What will you do with my information?
When you provide us with personal information, we may use that information in the following ways:
We may store and process your information to better understand your needs, and ways we can improve our services. We may use that information to contact you. We may provide certain third parties with aggregate (but not individual) information about visitors to our website.
Our policy is to protect the integrity of your personal information. NDRI does not lease, share, or sell any personal information collected through this site.
What are Cookies and how do you use them?
We use two types of cookies on our website:
- We use session cookies to gather data for technical purposes, such as improving navigation through our website and generating statistics about how our website is used. Session cookies are temporary text files that expire when you leave our website. When cookies expire, they are automatically deleted from your computer. We do not use session cookies to collect personal information, and we do not share data collected from session cookies.
- We use multi-session cookies, also known as persistent cookies, to customize our website for frequent visitors and to test variations of website design and content. Multi-session cookies are cookies that are stored over more than a single session on your computer. We do not use multi-session cookies to collect personal information, and we do not share data collected from multi-session cookies. Our multi-session cookies are set to expire no more than two years after your last visit to our website. After two years, they are automatically deleted from your computer. NDRI is unable to identify an individual by using such technologies.
You can take actions to block cookies by opting out. Blocking session cookies from your computer will not affect your access to the content and tools on our website. Blocking multi-session cookies may affect the personalization of the information on websites.
Social Media Guidelines
NDRI encourages comments, discussions, and posts on our various social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn. We do not pre-moderate comments and welcome most posts. We do not delete or censor comments unless they have content that:
- is abusive
- is off-topic
- contains personal attacks
- promotes hate of any kind
- uses foul language
- is blatantly spam
- is reported as abuse
When you use social media, your comments and posts may be visible to a large number of people. For your own privacy, you shouldn’t post personal information linked to your name.
Information Collected and Used from Third-Party Websites
If you have an account or profile with a third-party website (such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or YouTube), and choose to follow, like, or comment on NDRI’s page on that site, certain personal information may be made available to us based on the privacy policies of the third-party website and your privacy settings on that site. We do not share PII made available through these websites.
Information Automatically Collected and Stored
We use Google Analytics software to gather and temporarily store a variety of information about your visits to our webpage. However, this information cannot be used to identify you as an individual. The basic information we collect during your visits includes:
- The name of the domain you use to access the Internet (for example, Verizon.com, if you are using a Verizon online account, or stanford.edu, if you are connecting from Stanford University’s domain);
- The date and time of your visit to our website;
- The pages and documents you viewed on our website;
- The URL of the website you visited prior to ours;
- The type and version of your Web browser and operating system; and
- Your location at the time of your visit, down to the city-level
We don’t associate any of the data we collect with you as an individual. Instead, we aggregate this data from all visits in order to improve our website and provide a better user experience to our visitors. The aggregate data is available only to web managers and other designated staff, who require this information to perform their duties. It’s retained only for as long as needed for proper analysis, and then permanently deleted.
