We use this information for statistical analyses that help make our site more useful to visitors. This information does not record personal information about individuals and will only be used internally.
On some of our webpages, we offer interactive forms that allow you to voluntarily submit personal information like your name or email address. In these cases, all submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for which it is intended and is not made available to any third party.
If you decide to send us an electronic mail message (or email), the message will usually contain your return email address. If you include personally identifying information in your email, we may use that information in responding to your request. We do not distribute lists of email addresses to any parties outside of the Chesapeake Bay Program.
On certain webpages, we use “cookies” to help you use dynamic, interactive features of our website. A cookie is a small file that a website transfers to your computer’s hard disk, usually to keep track of you while you are connected to that site.
The cookies on ChesapeakeStat do not collect personal information about you, but they do collect information about your browser “session.” The cookie makes it easier for you to use the dynamic features of these webpages without having to provide the same information again as you move from one page to another.
Our website includes many links to Chesapeake Bay Program partner sites, as well as other websites we find interesting or relevant. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. The privacy policies and procedures described here do not apply to any external sites we reference. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of any site you link to from ours, especially if you share any personal information.
