- The information we collect and why we collect it;
- How we use that information;
- How we share information; and
- The choices we offer.
Personally Identifiable Information that We Collect
We may ask you for, or you may voluntarily submit, personally identifiable information when you access the Websites. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could include, but is not limited to:
- Your name, nickname, or screen name;
- Your contact information (such as address, telephone numbers and email address);
- Your IP address; and
- Other personal information.
Non-Personal or Aggregate Information that We Collect
When you access the Websites, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you, such as IP host address, web pages viewed, browser type, operating system, referring service, search information, device type, page views, usage, and browsing habits and similar data. We also may aggregate demographic information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular geographical location) in a manner which does not identify any one individual. We also may aggregate information collected offline in connection with the Websites, obtain non- personally identifiable information from third party sources, and develop aggregate information by anonymizing previously collected personally identifiable information.
When collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic means, we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is mixed in with the non- personally identifiable information. While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please email us at email@example.com.
We will use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you:
- We may share your personally identifiable information collected in connection with operating the Websites.
- We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your inquiries or requests.
- We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties (collectively, the “Third Party Vendors”) to further the purpose for which you provided such information to us. For example, we may share your information with Elastic Email or other vendor(s) to send emails. We urge you to read the privacy practices of all of our Third Party Vendors before submitting any personally identifiable information through the Websites.
- We may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law.
- We may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment, or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the terms or policies for our services and the Websites or those of our sponsors.
- We may transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with the sale or merger, divestiture of assets, or change of control of Western Landowners Alliance.
- We may share your personally identifiable information with an affiliate, partner, or similar organization as long as their privacy practices are substantially similar to ours.

The security of your personally identifiable information is very important to us.

However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and your use of the Websites demonstrates your assumption of this risk. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
