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, 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 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.

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.
