Information we collect

Support Public Lands only collects personal information via voluntary submission by visitors, and may include your name, email address, phone number, the contents of messages and/or attachments you send us, and any other information you choose to provide. When you register for an Account, we may ask for your contact information, including items such as name, company name, address, email address, and telephone number. No personally-identifying information is collected from any individual without their prior knowledge and consent. When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
Usage data is also collected regarding website use and traffic; this information does not include any personal information.

Log Files

Support Public Lands follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.

How we use your information

Support Public Lands uses the information we collect in various ways, including to:

  • Improve and personalize your experience on our website
  • Understand and analyze usage of our website
  • Develop new products, services, features, and functionality

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information provided in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Support Public Lands does not voluntarily share your personal information with any third-parties; and your personal information will never be sold.
