What Information TERRA Gathers and Tracks
TERRA gathers two types of information about users:
- Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive notices, to participate in our message boards or forums, and from participation in surveys;
- Information TERRA gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does TERRA divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
How TERRA Gathers User Information
TERRA may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We DO NOT share any of this information any third party.
TERRA tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. TERRA does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
Use of Information
TERRA uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on this site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. TERRA never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners. When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better site for you. TERRA will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Sharing of Information
TERRA uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
- Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
- Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users.
