Your privacy is important to us. This online privacy policy is your guide to how we handle information we may obtain from you or about you when you visit reachofariver.org. If you have questions about our privacy practices on the Site, please contact us.

Information Collected Automatically

Like most websites, we automatically collect certain information during your visit to our Site. We currently use Google Analytics to perform web measurement and analytics. The information it collects may be used for things such as compiling statistics about our Site and measuring Site activity so that we may update the Site to better meet users’ needs and interests. Get more information about how Google may use data it collects through the Site, or learn how to opt out of Google Analytics data collection.

Information that may be collected by automated means includes:

  • Date and time you visited our Site
  • Pages you visited while on our Site
  • If you navigated to our Site by clicking a link and the location of that link
  • The Internet Service Provider you used to connect to our Site
  • The Internet Protocol address from which you accessed our Site
  • The browser you used to visit our Site
  • The operating system you used to visit our Site
  • The type of handheld or mobile device you used to view our Site
  • Location information

Your web browser may have settings that allow you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal when you visit various websites or use online services. Like many websites, our Site is not designed to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from browsers. Learn more about “Do Not Track” signals.

Cookies

We use “cookies” to store your preferences and other information on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information. A cookie is a text file that is placed in your computer or device to store your preferences. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser setting to decline cookies, if you so choose. If you do decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features on this Site. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. Learn more about cookies.

In addition, we may use automatically-collected information to track your activity over time and across websites, as well as across different devices you use to access the Internet.

Personal Information Collection and Use

We may collect personal information from you when you voluntarily provide it on the Site while filling out a form, submitting a question or signing up for one of our programs or online services. Before you disclose to us the personal information of another person, you must obtain that person’s consent to both the disclosure and the processing of that personal information in accordance with this policy. Some other ways in which you may submit information to us include:

If you donate to support the Colorado River Traveling Exhibition, personal information (e.g., name, address, phone number, email address, etc.) will be used to complete your transaction and process your donation.

How We May Share Your Information

Although we will not sell your information, we may share the personal information we collect through our Site with our employees, agents, vendors, consultants, contractors, and other service providers and affiliated organizations that need the information to carry out work on our behalf. These third parties use the personal information to which they have access to fulfill the purposes for which we shared that information.

We may anonymize, aggregate and de-identify the data that we collect and use such anonymized, aggregated and de-identified data for our own internal business purposes, including sharing it with vendors, consultants and other third parties for commercial, statistical, and market research purposes; for example to allow those parties to analyze patterns among groups of people, and conduct research on demographics, interests and behavior.

We also may share your information:

  • If we are required to do so by law, regulation, or legal process (such as in response to a subpoena or court order or similar government request for information);
  • To respond to requests by government agencies, including law enforcement authorities;
  • When we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity;
  • To enforce our policies, or to protect legal rights, property, or safety;
    With third parties, to investigate or address possible criminal or fraudulent activity; or
  • In the event of a joint venture, partnership, or other collaboration with another organization.

Please note that we are public agencies subject to the Nevada Public Records Act and other applicable state or federal laws. Information submitted through this Site may be subject to disclosure if a public records request is made. We respond to requests within the parameters of those laws.
