As with many other websites, when you access pages on the Website, certain information provided by you is automatically recorded. This will include your Internet Protocol address, browser type, and information about the pages visited. This information is then processed to provide MSI US with data about how the Website is being accessed and used, and may be shared with MSI Reproductive Choices through activity reports. This data is then used to continually develop and improve the Website in order to respond more effectively to user needs.
You may submit personally identifiable information, such as your name, physical address, or email address (“Personally Identified Information“), through forms on the Website. Once you have completed an online form, your Personally Identified Information is captured and sent through to our secure server.
Additionally, we have also incorporated a 3rd-party cookie from Google on our Website which, in connection with Google Analytics, assists us in tracking how visitors use our Website. Google Analytics is a set of software tools that allows MSI US to automatically collect information about how visitors use the MSI US website. We may share data collected through Google Analytics in aggregated and non-personally-identifiable form with 3rd parties, including donors to MSI US. Information collected by Google is subject to Google’s own terms and policies which you should be able to access from Google’s websites.
This is a list of cookies that are used by MSI US:
|PHPSESSID||This is the default cookie PHP uses to store session information on the server. PHPSESSID is how the server can identify a user uniquely and determine whether a user has previously visited the Website.|
|_ga||Used by Google Analytics for user tracking.|
Share links appear on most pages on our Website, including to 3rd party services such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and your default email client (“3rd Party Services“). Using these links may also add cookies to your session from servers of those 3rd Party Services. MSI US is not affiliated with the 3rd Party Services and has no control over any information you choose to share with 3rd Party Services.
In order to locate additional supporters for MSI United States, we occasionally trade mailing lists with other non-profit groups in order to lower fundraising costs. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not wish to have your name or address exchanged.
We may also share your information with governmental authorities or other parties as required to by law, such as in response to a search warrant, court order, or subpoena.
MSI-US may contract with 3rd-party vendors to assist us in our digital strategy, marketing, and operations. We may share usage information with such 3rd-party vendors, including reports produced through the Google Analytics platform, but any such shared information will be anonymized prior to sharing with such vendors.
