2. Usage of Cookies and Other Network Technologies

2.1 Cookies.

The Services use “cookies” and other web tracking tools to enhance your online experience with us. We may store Information about you using the cookies on our website. A cookie (also called web cookie, Internet cookie, browser cookie, or simply cookie) is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user’s computer by the user’s web browser while the user is browsing. We use cookies to improve your site experience, to assess content usage, to distinguish you from other users of our Services, and to support the marketing of our Services.

You can adjust the cookies we collect by visiting the Cookie Notice, available at https://staterecords.org/cookieInfo. You are free to decline to accept cookies, but by doing so, you may not be able to take full advantage of our Services and all of our offerings. Certain of the cookies are necessary in order for the Services to function. In certain circumstances, we may link the information we store in cookies to personal Information you submit while using the Services.

Further, if you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies under the following file names. Other information on deleting or controlling cookies is available at www.allaboutcookies.org.

2.2 GIFs.

We or our service providers may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” “embedded links” and other commonly used information-gathering tools in connection with some website pages and HTML-formatted email messages. We use these tools for such purposes as compiling aggregate statistics about Services usage and response rates. A pixel tag is an electronic image (often a single pixel), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors, and may be associated with cookies on visitors’ hard drives. Pixel tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of the website, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of our website and Services. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, pixel tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.

2.3 Clickstreams.

As you use the Internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data,” can be collected and stored by a website’s server. Clickstream data can reveal the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to the website. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personal information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Services, how visitors navigate through the Services, and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors.

2.4 Advertising.

Note that we may use cookies and other technologies for purposes of online advertising. This means that when you use the Services, we or third-party ad servers, ad network providers or advertisers (collectively “Ad Providers”) may use cookies that they collect or that we provide to them. Such Ad Providers may collect information about your use of the Services or your online activities over time and across different websites and devices. Collected information may include the content you viewed, the date and time that you viewed this content, and the website that referred you to the Services. This information may be associated with your unique browser, device identifier or IP address. Ad Providers may provide you with advertisements that you may see on the services or on affiliated websites. To improve the relevancy and help measure the effectiveness of such advertisements, the Ad Providers may use cookies, web beacons, clear GIFs, or similar technologies. These practices help tailor advertisements that are relevant and of use to you. You may control or opt out of such advertising by changing the cookie settings in your browser as described above.

Our use of online tracking technologies may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” under certain laws. To the extent that these online tracking technologies are deemed to be a “sale” or “sharing” under certain laws, you can opt out of these online tracking technologies by submitting a request here.

3. Do Not Track Notice

Many modern web browsers give you the option to send a “Do Not Track” signal to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. At this time, the Services do not specifically respond to “Do Not Track” signals.

We encourage you to review the privacy policies of our third-party advertisers and analytics service providers to learn about your choices about information they collect from you. In addition, the Network Advertising Initiative offers information about some of the Internet advertising companies we may use, including how to opt out of interest-based advertising they deliver. For all the details, including how to turn on Do Not Track, visit www.donottrack.us.

We use commercially reasonable measures to provide the Services. However, you acknowledge that no security safeguards or method of transmission over the Internet are completely secure, and although we believe the measures implemented by us reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal Information transmitted to or from our Services. Any transmission of personal Information is at your own risk. We do not guarantee that your personal Information will not be misused by third parties. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security features. You agree that we will not have any liability for misuse, access, acquisition, deletion, or disclosure of your personal Information.

The safety and security of your personal Information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

If you believe that your personal Information has been accessed or acquired by an unauthorized person, you must promptly Contact Us so that we can quickly take necessary measures.

We will retain your Information for as long as needed to provide you Services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our policies.
