  • Your IP Address
  • The length of time you stayed on the Site
  • Where you came into the Site

  • The type of browser you are using

This information is used to determine:

  • Traffic Patterns

How does StateSurge use the information it collects

StateSurge collects information to provide you with the services you request and to improve our website.

StateSurge also uses this aggregate, anonymous data to perform statistical analysis of the collective characteristics and behavior of our site visitors; to measure user interests regarding specific areas of StateSurge Site; and to analyze how and where best to use our resources. Without such data, we would not know which parts of StateSurge's Site are the most popular, and we would not be able to change and update the content and services appropriately.

StateSurge may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide information on individual users to the appropriate governmental authorities. In matters involving a danger to personal or public safety, StateSurge may voluntarily provide information to appropriate governmental authorities.

When you provide personally identifiable information on StateSurge's Site to register for service, buy a product, or take advantage of a promotion, that information is collected and maintained solely by StateSurge, unless specifically stated otherwise at the point of collection. StateSurge does not sell member e-mail addresses to third-parties.

 

What are cookies and how does StateSurge use them

A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website to the hard drive of your computer. This unique number identifies your web browser, but not you to StateSurge computers whenever you visit the StateSurge Site. A cookie will not provide personally identifiable information about you, such as your name and address. The use of cookies is now an industry standard, and cookies are currently used on most major websites. Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can reset your browser to notify you when you have received a cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse to accept cookies altogether. While disabling cookies is possible, keep in mind that StateSurge does require cookies to be enabled for most services to function properly.

Generally, cookies enable our server to remember visitors, allow entry into password-protected areas, and to help ensure accurate measuring of web traffic. Cookies can be deleted or rejected by changing the settings on your web browser. However, the deletion or rejection of cookies on a visitor's part may impact your ability to use parts of StateSurge Site effectively. Because advertisers or third party websites may use cookies in different ways, this statement regarding the use of cookies only covers the StateSurge Site. In no way are cookies on the StateSurge Site harmful to the computers on which they are placed or how the information is used.
