Privacy Policy

Last Updated January 1, 2014

The Anaconda Local Development Center (ALDC) and its partner companies and participating community colleges are committed to protecting your privacy online. The purpose of this statement is to inform you of our privacy policy in the collection of personal information that we may collect from you and how it is used by the ALDC, our partner companies, and participating community colleges.

Information we collect
The ALDC web site only collects personal information that is provided to us when you complete online forms including contact us, more information requests, email sign-ups, when purchasing products or services, or when registering for various events and/or interactive web site features.

Occasionally, visitors to our web site may be asked to complete a survey for research purposes. In such a case, your information may be used to help us improve our web site or for the initiative’s marketing and promotional purposes. Please be assured that your information will be treated confidentially.

When you comment on a blog post on the ALDC web site you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these posts can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. The ALDC is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Please review their privacy policy before providing personal or financial information.

Sharing personal information
The ALDC does rent or sell personal or financial information and strictly adheres to all state and federal laws pertaining to privacy of records. We may however, share your name and email address with partner companies or participating community colleges should you sign-up for email updates for the sole purpose of education or employment recruitment.

The ALDC will disclose personal information for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, where disclosure is necessary.

Email Opt-Out
ALDC uses “Safe Unsubscribe” allowing users to unsubscribe from email communications. Simply select Safe Unsubscribe when you receive an email communication from ALDC.

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons
ALDC may use cookies, web beacons, or other similar technologies in combination with your personal information to enhance your experience including use of community and interactive features.
Cookies are text files that are placed in your computer’s browser, and can be used to help recognize you on the ALDC web site. Web beacons, sometimes called single-pixel gifs are small pieces of code placed on Web pages that can be used to count the users who visit that Web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a user viewing that page.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to use interactive features and services that depend on cookies.

Other information
The ALDC web server collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for system administration purposes, to track system usage, or for security purposes. These IP addresses are kept in a log file and are a normal part of the web server. An IP address only identifies a computer or, in the case of pooled IP addresses, one among a group of computers. Personal information is not available from an IP address. Additionally, this information would not be distributed or shared with a third party unless directed by court order.

Online Privacy Policy Only
This online privacy policy applies only to information collected through our website and not to information collected offline.

ALDC may update this privacy policy to reflect changes in our services, business practices and based on your feedback. When changes are made the “last updated” date at the top of this policy will be updated. We encourage you to periodically review our privacy policy to be informed of how ALDC is using and protecting your information.
