We collect some technical information when you visit to make your visit seamless. The section below explains how we handle and collect technical information when you visit our website.
When you browse, read pages or download information on Linn County R.E.C.'s website, we automatically gather and store certain technical information about your visit. This information never identifies who you are, unless you are logged in to your account. The information we collect and store about your visit is listed below:
The Internet domain (for example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university's domain) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our website;
The type of browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) and operating system (Windows, Unix) used to access our site;
The date and time you access our site; The pages you visit; and If you linked to the Linn County R.E.C. website from another website, the address of that website.
This information is only used to help us make the site more useful for you. With this data we learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use.
When you visit some websites, their webservers generate pieces of information known as cookies. Some cookies collect personal information to recognize your computer in the future. This is not the case at Linn County R.E.C., where we only use non-persistent cookies or "per-session cookies." These cookies do not collect personal information on members and they are erased as soon as you leave our website.
Per-session cookies serve technical purposes like providing seamless navigation through Linn County R.E.C.. These cookies do not permanently record data and they are not stored on your computer's hard drive after your session is complete. Linn County R.E.C. cookies are only available during an active browser session. Again, once you close your browser, the per-session cookie disappears. Your browser may store cookies related to login information, such as a password, but this is controlled by you at the browser level rather than the per-session cookie at Linn County R.E.C..
You already have an account, as a Cooperative member, established at Linn County R.E.C., but if you choose to provide us with additional personal information -- like filling out a Contact Us form with personal information and submitting it to us through the member website -- we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We might share the information you give us with Third Parties if your inquiry relates to that party to get you the information you requested, or as otherwise required by law. We never create individual profiles or give it to any private organizations. Linn County R.E.C. never collects information for commercial marketing.
If you have any concerns about sharing personal information over the Internet, please call our Linn County R.E.C. offices at 319-377-1587 or 1-800-332-5420 to discuss any questions you may have.
