Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation and customization feature of Sutherland Institute’s website (“sutherlandinstitute.org”), we gather certain types of information from users.
Information Collected By sutherlandinstitute.org
sutherlandinstitute.org collects two types of information from users: personal data such as zip code, email address and demographic information; and aggregated data such as information about traffic patterns on sutherlandinstitute.org (for example, how many users log on to sutherlandinstitute.org on a daily basis).
Aggregated information, such as which pages users visit, is collected through various means. One of these ways is through an IP address, a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from sutherlandinstitute.org, our servers log your IP address. sutherlandinstitute.org does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, your session will remain anonymous to us. sutherlandinstitute.org collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration only.
Use of Information Collected by sutherlandinstitute.org
sutherlandinstitute.org uses both the personal and aggregated information we collect for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of the site, customize the content and/or layout of the site for each individual user, target promotions on other Sutherland-related sites, and, if requested, provide information services by email to the user. After registration, users will receive a single email message confirming registration.
Information Security at sutherlandinstitute.org
Sutherland Institute employees understand the need for user privacy. Access to user data is strictly limited and can only be accessed by specific individuals who have the necessary username and password combination.
Children and Privacy
Sutherland Institute encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children online and to be fully familiar with the sites visited by their children. In general, sutherlandinstitute.org will not contain content that is reasonably considered unsuitable for children.

It is important to note that sutherlandinstitute.org contains links to sites other than sutherlandinstitute.org, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as sutherlandinstitute.org.
