Information Collected

We offer a number of services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information:

  • Information you provide by filling in forms on our website - When you become a registered user, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address and an account password).
  • Cookies - When you visit The Open PHACTS Consortium, we send one or more cookies - a small file containing a string of characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends, such as how people search. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features and services of The Open PHACTS Consortium may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.
  • Log information - Our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
  • User communications - When you send email or other communication to The Open PHACTS Consortium, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
  • Embedded URLs - In order to provide maximum site utility, The Open PHACTS Consortium may also use a tracking technique that uses embedded URLs to allow use of the site without cookies. Embedded URLs manifest themselves as plain text or encoded extensions to the URL that appears in the browser address or location toolbar. This technology allows limited information to follow you as you navigate the site, but does not reveal personal data and is not used beyond the session. While this increases your ability to surf the site, it does not replace the functionality or streamlining of cookies and may limit your use of many convenience features offered by the site.
