Automatically Collected Information
We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us on our sites and in some e-mails we may send each other. Automatic technologies we use may include, for example, Web server logs/IP addresses, cookies and Web beacons.
Web Server Logs/IP Addresses: An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. The Colorado Mining Association collects IP addresses to conduct system administration and report aggregate information to affiliates, business partners and /or vendors to conduct site analysis and Web site performance review.
Web Beacons: On certain Web pages or e-mails, The Colorado Mining Association may utilize a common Internet technology called “Web beacon” (also known as an “action tag” or “clear GIF technology.”) Web beacons help analyze the effectiveness of Web sites by measuring, for example, the number of visitors to a site or how many visitors clicked on key elements of a site. Web beacons, cookies and other tracking technologies do not automatically obtain personally identifiable information about you. Only if you voluntarily submit personally identifiable information, such as by registering or sending e-mails, can these automatic tracking technologies be used to provide further information about your use of the Web sites and/or interactive e-mails to improve their usefulness to you.
