Subject to certain statutory exceptions most documents and records maintained by the Cleveland Metroparks, including electronic data, are public records under Ohio law. Therefore, information submitted through this Website may be subject to disclosure pursuant to a public records request.
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We also may collect and store certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number to respond to questions, and to process or fill orders or requests. We may use this information to provide goods and services that you request and to let you know of additional goods and services about which you might be interested. We also use this information to customize your experience using the Website.
In order to generate usage statistics to help us improve the Website, we automatically collect certain information on every visitor to the Website. However, this information does not disclose traditional "personal identifiers" (such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and the like). Each time a request is made to view a page within the Website, our Website creates a log file capturing generic user information. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using, the date and time you access the Website, the Internet protocol address of the individual computer (or proxy server) making the request, and the Internet address of the website from which you may have linked to this Website. All information collected by way of server log files is used in aggregate form only and may be analyzed for trends and statistics.
We may also retain transaction and experience information, such as information about your transactions with us, as well as information about our communications with you. Examples include your account history, requests for information, and our responses to such requests. We may match user information we collect with offline data available from other sources in order to carry out our business, to provide our goods and services, and to conduct advertising and promotions more effectively.
Cleveland Metroparks processes and stores information you submit to complete purchases, reservations, and other transactions and uses one or more third-party payment processors to facilitate product ordering and payment. Cleveland Metroparks, as necessary, shares this information with third-party financial institutions and business partners, in a safe and secure manner, to complete, process and fulfill your transactions, and by engaging in such transactions you agree to that sharing of your information.
You may also set up an account on our Website and instruct us to process recurring installation payments or subscriptions to purchase our programs and services. When you register for an account through Cleveland Metroparks’ Website you can add a credit or debit card to your account. When you add a credit or debit card to your account your information is encrypted. Cleveland Metroparks does not store or have access to the original card numbers of credit or debit cards that you add to your account. Cleveland Metroparks stores only a portion of your actual card numbers along with a card description.
In addition, we may automatically gather general statistical information about the Website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, goods and services purchased and the like, but in doing so we do not reference you by individual name, e-mail address, home address, or telephone number. We use this data in the aggregate to determine how much our customers use the Website (or parts thereof) so we can improve it. We may provide this statistical information to third parties, but when we do so we do not provide personally identifying information without your permission.
