In order for FindCollegeInfo.com to ensure that we are providing our users with the best possible consumer experience on our site, we gather and track certain user information. We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third parties to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users to detail their viewing preferences. Consequently, collected information is tied to the user’s personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve the content of the site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a user’s visit to our website and to direct pertinent marketing promotions to them. Your profile, if shared, is shared in aggregate form only with other third parties.
Third Party Advertising:
When you visit the FindCollegeInfo.com website, our web server sends a cookie to your computer. A cookie is a piece of data stored on your computer which simply stores a limited amount of information about your site visit and tracks aggregate information on how our site is being used, including session counts, navigation patterns, pages visited, etc. These cookies, however, do not store any personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, phone number, etc. as you browse the site. These cookies cannot be related to you as an individual unless you complete one of our online request forms.
If you come to the FindCollegeInfo.com website from an online banner ad, an anonymous identification number may be passed to our site.

Web Logs track anonymous user information, including the number of visitors to our site, operating systems, Internet Provider addresses (if publicly available), and browser type. Unlike cookies, Web Logs are maintained only on FindCollegeInfo.com servers and do not store or place anything on the user's computer.
Information obtained from the "Contact Us" section of a FindCollegeInfo.com website:
FindCollegeInfo.com employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Clear gifs are not tied to users’ personally identifiable information.
In addition, we use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
