This notice explains our Privacy Statement. When you visit SoutheastIllinois.com, you are accepting the terms and conditions of this policy.

INFORMATION GATHERED

IP Addresses
Information from users' IP addresses is used to diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our websites. Your IP address is used to track you anonymously and to gather broad aggregate demographic information. This information itself is not personally identifiable and is not linked to anything that would make such information personally identifiable.

Requested Demographic Information
When you use or register for Southeastern Illinois Convention & Visitors Bureau services, you may be asked to provide information that is essential to the provision of those services. Such information may consist of: name, email address, street address, zip code, and other demographic information. Other than as necessary to contact you as part of the Southeastern Illinois Convention & Visitors Bureau services in question (for example, to send you an email notification that you have requested), this personally identifiable information is retained in the form of internal databases as well as customary web server logs which are used to monitor and report on aggregate internet traffic patterns. The personally identifiable information collected and retained in this manner is not used or shared with any third party.

Cookies
To enhance your web experience, we use identifiers, often referred to as "cookies," to collect anonymous preference and user information. The information derived from the use of cookies does not include and is never merged with personally identifiable information (such as name, street address or email address) or any information that is generally considered sensitive or controversial.

WHAT ARE "COOKIES"?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our system to recognize your browser, and to provide certain other features.

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act took effect on April 21, 2000, and imposes certain requirements on websites directed at children under 13 that collect information on those children, and on websites that know they are collecting information on children under 13. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 on our website. No one under the age of 15 should submit any personal information without the consent of a parent or guardian.

CONDITIONS OF USE, TERMS, AND NOTICES
