Collecting your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register before entering the secure section of the site, signing up for e-mail newsletters, or when contacting us. Personal information collected by Welcome Home Washington often is limited to e-mail address, location, but may include other information when needed to be a member of the site.
We occasionally add tracking to some pages to see how well they are performing in Google. The cookie that Google adds to a user's computer when he/she clicks on an ad expires in 30 days. This measure, and the fact that Google uses separate servers for conversion tracking and search results, protects the user's privacy.
Users who don't wish to participate in tracking activities can easily not accept this cookie by setting their Internet browser user preferences. These users will simply not be included in your conversion tracking statistics.
