Information we collect
1. Account information
When you sign up for a CARTA account, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address, affiliation, etc). If you create an account on this web site, or one is created for you, your email address is stored with your account in order for the site administrators and site software to communicate with you. This address is recorded in our user account database and is available to this site's administrative staff. It is not made public and is never sold. Any content created using your account, such as symposia registrations, is also stored.
2. Log Data and Device Information
Standard server log information, such as IP address, time spent on the site, browser type, etc., is collected and assessed on an aggregate, rather than individual, basis in order to track site statistics, data that are most popular to our visitors, performance monitoring, and troubleshooting. This information is not made public and is never sold.
3. Cookies and Similar Technologies
How we use collected information
Studying access statistics and usage patterns helps to project future hardware needs, and aids in the design of new functionality. We also use this information for site and system security. We also share anonymized user and usage information with our primary funders.
We may also periodically send you event and news updates pertaining to CARTA unless you opt-out of our event interest list by editing your user profile or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not share user account information or log data with third parties for marketing or other purposes.
