(2) Information about website visits
We may collect information about your computer and your visits to this website such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, length of visit and number of page views. We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability, and for marketing purposes.
We may send a cookie, which may be stored on by your browser on your computer’s hard drive.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

(6) Security of your personal data
We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Of course, data transmission over the Internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.
It is possible that Electronic Communications may be accessed by unauthorized third parties when communicated between you and the school using the Internet, other network communications facilities, telephone or any other electronic means. All transfer of personal information on seattlecountryday.org is secured by encrypted user names and passwords, and the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. SSL prohibits other web users from gaining access to your personal information, and to help protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of your information.
You are responsible for keeping your passwords confidential.
