2. Information about beechacres.org visitors

Beech Acres gathers and analyzes certain general usage information, like the numbers and frequencies of visitors to beechacres.org and its areas – very much like television ratings that tell networks how many people tuned in to a program. Whenever you access Beechacres.org, certain non-identifying information is gathered from your Internet connection. This information is analyzed monthly, allowing us to determine how often the website is accessed, from where the website is accessed, when the website is accessed, and what information is being accessed. This analysis enables us to make changes that reflect our visitors’ interests. Information collected includes the Internet Protocol (IP) number assigned to your computer when you access the Internet, the name of the domain from which you access the Internet, the time and date of your visit to our site, the Web pages you viewed within beechacres.org, and sometimes, the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked to Beechacres.org. None of this information allows us to identify or contact you and is collected for statistical purposes only.
