WHO WE ARE
Our website address is https://www.urbanova.org
The purpose of this policy is to make explicit the information we gather on our users, and how we will – and will not – use that information. We collect only the information we actually need, some of which is what you give us when you email us.
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
WHEN YOU EMAIL US
If you choose to share personal information with us, that information is available only to those employees who provide a service related to your correspondence. Email addresses obtained through the website will neither be sold nor given to other private companies for marketing purposes. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, however, the information collected is subject to the provisions of the Washington Public Records Act, including, but not limited to, the access and confidentiality provisions of that law.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AUTOMATICALLY
FROM BROWSERS, DEVICES, AND SERVERS
As a visitor to our site, your IP address is automatically collected solely to track the number of computers visiting our site, the pages visited most often, and the timeframe used most frequently. This statistical data is gathered to analyze the information most frequently requested by the public and how Urbanova can best provide it. We also collect information about your web browser and operating system in order to improve our service to you. We use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to better understand our demographics and users’ interests. This information does not identify you personally; you may disable tracking by using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.
FROM FIRST-PARTY COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
We use both temporary and permanent cookies – small pieces of information that browsers store on your computer – to identify users of our services and to enhance user experience through customization. They do not contain personally identifiable information. We use first-party cookies in order to collect information about visitor behavior on our site; some part of our site may have third-party cookies, which are set by external websites such as Facebook, Twitter, or other social sites to implement social liking and sharing. You can obtain additional information from these sites’ policies. Some Internet browsers have enabled Do Not Track (DNT) features, which send out a DNT signal to the websites you visit indicating that you don’t wish to be tracked. There is currently no standard governing what websites can or should do when they receive these signals.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM THIRD PARTIES
FROM SOCIAL MEDIA SITES AND OTHER PUBLICLY AVAILABLE SOURCES
When you interact or engage with us on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram through posts, comments, questions, and other interactions, we may collect publicly available information, including from your profile, to allow us to connect with you. Once collected, this information may remain with us – even if you delete it from the social media sites.

We are committed to data security and have taken reasonable precautions to protect such information from loss, misuse, or alteration. We operate a secure data network protected by industry standard firewalls and password protection systems in place to protect, in accordance with those software programs, against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information we have collected from you. Only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our visitors. Unauthorized access will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
