    2. Information that may be derived through automated tracking mechanisms
      Our Website uses “cookies” and other web tracking technologies, including Google Analytics:

        1. Cookies.  A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer.  Cookies allow us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to register repeatedly.  Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser.
        2. Google Analytics.  Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google, Inc. employing cookies that are stored on your computer to facilitate an analysis of your use of the Website. The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our Website, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there. Google Analytics also offers a deactivation add-on for most current browsers that provides you with more control over what data Google can collect on websites you access. However, the browser deactivation add-on offered by Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may engage. Google Analytics also uses electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our Website is used. You can find additional information on how to install the browser add-on referenced above at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

      Third parties that have content embedded on the Website such as a social feature may set cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific AGF website from a certain IP address. Such third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from the Website unless you provide it to them directly.

      We do not track our Website users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals.  However, some third-party websites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such websites, you may set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be traced.

    1. Voluntary Information for Services and Features
      If you provide a state-issued identification number or Social Security number, it will be used solely for the production of your voter registration form.  Understand that once you mail in or electronically submit your voter registration application form to your local or state election officials, it becomes a matter of public record and is available for inspection and use by those who satisfy the requirements of the State law governing its use.We may use non-identifying and aggregate information to create statistics and polls related to voting, and share such information with third parties, including for donation campaign purposes.

We may permit certain trusted third parties, such as Google Inc., to track usage, analyze data such as the source address that a page request is coming from, your IP address or domain name, the date and time of the page request, the referring website (if any) and other parameters in the URL. This is collected in order to better understand our Website usage, and enhance the performance of services to maintain and operate the Website and certain features on the Website.

      Certain Services are offered by third parties through their website, and any Personal Information submitted to such third party websites, and any use of such third party websites and your provision of Personal Information to such third party websites, are governed by their respective privacy policies and not by this Privacy Policy.  However, AGF may have access to certain Personal Information submitted to such third party websites, and this Privacy Policy will apply to such Personal Information to the extent related to any Personal Information accessible to and stored by AGF.
