How We Collect and Use Information
We collect the following types of information about you:
Information You Provide Us Directly
We ask for certain information such as your name, address and email address when you sign-up to receive our newsletter or make a donation to OPAL. We use this information to correspond with you.
We may directly collect analytics data or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for our website. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the site. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot be reasonably manipulated to identify any particular individual user.
Log File Information
Each time you access our website, log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile device, and recorder by our server. Log files may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring / exit pages, and number of clicks. We use this information to analyze how you interact with the site, so we can identify trends and make improvements.
When you visit our website, we may send a cookie – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer. The cookie uniquely identifies your browser to help you log-in faster and navigate more easily through the site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the site (e.g. the pages you view and the links you click) and allow us to track your usage of the site over time. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
We may use web beacons to anonymously track the online usage patterns of www.opalclt.org visitors. We may also use web beacons in HTML-based emails sent to our members and supporters to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. This information allows us to more accurately report on and improve our outreach and communication activities.
When you access our website by or through a mobile device (e.g. smartphone or tablet), we may access, collect, monitor or store one or more “device identifiers”. A device identifier is a small data file stored on or associated with your device, which uniquely identifies it. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use our website. A device identifier may remain on your device to help you log-in faster and navigate through the site more easily. Some features of the site may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
When you access our website by or through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor or store “location data”, which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude or longitude) or similar information about the location of your device. Location data may convey information to us about how you browse and use our website. Some features of the site may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled.

We use the information we collect or receive, such as your email address, to communicate directly with you.
