Information Tracking

Certain information is automatically collected in server logs analytic programs. This can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring URLs, duration on pages and click behavior. TCRN uses this information, help diagnose server and issues as well improve user experience, and to help identify you as a unique visitor to our site and to gather broad information about your site usage. Tracking usage patterns do not match this information with a specific user’s personally identifiable information that may be on file.

Cookies

A “cookie” is a small text file that is placed in your browser and allows us to recognize a user each time they are on TCRN web site(s) but only as a identified user not your identity. We use cookies to track usage on the site.

Your information is never given to third parties. This is the foundation of our privacy policy. We can provide our advertisers with aggregate information, for example: “300 users saw your advertisement this week”.

We may use an ad network provider to display advertisements on the TCRN site(s). These providers like all advertising service providers, use cookies, or similar technologies for their own tracking purposes. In doing so, the provider collects non-personal data such as your browser type, your operating system, Web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, and other click stream data. The use of cookies or similar technologies by third party providers is subject to their own privacy policies, not TCRN’s.
