This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
- 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 and operating system used to access our site;
- The date and time you access our site;

If You Register for Activities or Contests
When you register for a program or contest of Five Rivers MetroParks, you are no longer an anonymous user to us. During the registration process, Five Rivers MetroParks will ask for your name, email address, postal address, and telephone.
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide a personalized service to you, the user. None of this information is shared with business partners or other third parties.
If You Send Us E-mail
You may choose to provide us with personal information, as in e-mail with a comment or question. We use the information to improve our service to you or to respond to your request. Sometimes we forward your e-mail to other park employees who may be better able to help you. We do not share our e-mail with any other outside organizations.
