Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation and customization feature of The HighWire’s website (“TheHighWire.com”), we gather certain types of information from users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with them, and how to correct or change the information.
Information Collected By TheHighWire.com
TheHighWire.com collects two types of information from users: personal data such as zip code, email address and demographic information; and aggregated data such as information about traffic patterns on TheHighWire.com (for example, how many users log on to TheHighWire.com on a daily basis).
Aggregated information, such as which pages users visit, is collected through various means. One of these ways is through an IP address, a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from TheHighWire.com, our servers log your IP address. TheHighWire.com does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, your session will remain anonymous to us. TheHighWire.com collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration only.
Use of Information Collected by TheHighWire.com
TheHighWire.com uses both the personal and aggregated information we collect for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of the site, to customize the content and/or layout of the site for each individual user, and if requested, to provide information services by email to the user. After registration, users will receive a single email message confirming registration. The HighWire will never disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party unless required to do so by court order, law or governmental agency. Text messaging originator opt-in data and consent will not be shared with any third parties unless required by law.
