We will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis. To make use of certain features on culturalcorridor.org you need to register and to provide some information as part of the registration process. The information you supply helps us offer you more personalized features, tailoring our site to your interests and making it more useful to you.
If you choose to send us e-mail or fill out a Web-based form, that information is stored in an employee's e-mail or in an on-line database.

The areas of the site in which we collect such information, the information collected and the purpose for collecting that information are described below:

Online purchases and security
To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we invoke a standard feature found in browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number, a sort of anonymous user ID that resides on your computer. The cookie doesn't actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we won't know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. A cookie can't read data stored on your computer.
