Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation and customization features of Bigger Pie Forum’s website ("biggerpieforum.org"), we gather certain types of information from users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with them, and how to correct or change the information.

Information Collected By biggerpieforum.org

biggerpieforum.org collects two types of information from users: personal data such as zip code, email address and demographic information; and aggregated data such as information about traffic patterns on biggerpieforum.org (for example, how many users view biggerpieforum.org web pages on a daily basis).

Aggregated Information

Aggregated information, such as which pages users visit, is collected through various means. One of these ways is through an IP address, a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that "serve up" web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from biggerpieforum.org, our servers log your IP address. biggerpieforum.org does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, your session will remain anonymous to us. biggerpieforum.org collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration only.

Use of Cookies

biggerpieforum.org may use cookies to automate the process of logging on to certain areas of the site. The biggerpieforum.org cookie is a small data file stored on your computer that contains a single, randomly assigned user ID number. By recognizing this ID number, biggerpieforum.org can automatically provide you with the personalized content for which you requested. Cookies can neither read any other files on your computer, nor damage your computer. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you'd prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent.

Use of Information Collected by biggerpieforum.org

biggerpieforum.org uses both the personal and aggregated information we collect for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of the site, target promotions on other sites and if requested, to provide information services by email to the user. After registration, users will receive a single email message confirming registration. Bigger Pie Forum will never disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party unless required to do so by court order, law or governmental agency.

Information Security at biggerpieforum.org

biggerpieforum.org staff understand the need for user privacy and access to user data is strictly limited and can only be accessed by specific individuals who have the necessary username and password combination.

Mailing List Information

From time to time, we make our list of newsletter subscribers available to other organizations to email on behalf of Bigger Pie Forum. This process is carefully controlled, and limited to outside groups directly responsible for emailing you on our behalf for the purpose of sharing our newsletter with you.  If you would like to be excluded from this, please call us at (601) 427-9311, and we’ll make sure your name is not included in our mailing list sharing activities.

Links to Other Sites

It is important to note that biggerpieforum.org contains links to sites other than biggerpieforum.org, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as biggerpieforum.org. For instance, a link in a selected article or writeup on biggerpieforum.org may take you away from biggerpieforum.org to an entirely different site.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

Bigger Pie Forum reserves the right to change the policy on use of information collected. Any changes in policy will be noted in a revised privacy policy statement and will be posted at least 30 days prior to implementation. You may direct any privacy policy questions to contact@biggerpieforum.org.
