When someone visits ARIDANSupports.com we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns.
We use google analytics to track things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site and interactions with the site. This information is processed in a way that does not identify anyone. We do not make and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of visitors to our website.
As part of the registration process for our e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We do not rent or trade email lists with other organizations, businesses, or individuals.
We use a third-party provider, Mailchimp to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email openings and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see the Mailchimp privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
