Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by StandardsWork. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used to maintain quality of the Site, provide general statistics regarding use of the Site, analyze trends, administer the Site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use for reporting and sponsorship purposes. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
StandardsWork may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize StandardsWork pages, or register with StandardsWork site or services, a cookie helps StandardsWork to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same StandardsWork website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the StandardsWork features that you customized.
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 fully experience the interactive features of the StandardsWork services or websites you visit.
How we share information with third parties
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners, sponsors, and donors. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We may also from time to time share information collected through our subscription forms and our order forms with certain affiliate or partner organizations.
We may store your data on servers provided by third party hosting vendors with whom we have contracted.
