Information We CollectABOL may gather certain broad information about web site use including the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the programs and services preferred. We look at the data in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. We gather this information so we can learn how many people visit ABOL sites, which pages are the most and least viewed, and to identify which web sites are referring visitors to our sites. The data helps us determine the extent to which our members use certain parts of our web site. Thus, we use this information to help us in restructuring sites to better meet the needs of our members.
Most ABOL sites and services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 16 years of age. Of course the ABOL encourages you to talk with your children about communicating and disclosing personal information online.
