This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

AVISTA Institute tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users.

We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. AVISTA Institute may use cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above).

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site.

How the information we gather is used if relevant.

As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to contact users, send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums.
When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters.

We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include the ability to opt-out of any mass emails we may send from time to time.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
