Cookies set by a website owner or service provider (in this caseSpa Creek Conservancy) are called “first-party cookies”.

Third parties that set third party cookies have the ability to recognize your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when you visit other websites or services.
Occasionally, Spa Creek Conservancy enters into contracts with carefully selected third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you or assist us in our own marketing activities. This includes providing us with analytic information and search engine optimization services. Our contracts with third parties prohibit the third party from using your Personal Identifiable Information for any purpose beyond the purpose for which it was shared.

IP Addresses & Tracking:
Spa Creek Conservancy collects your IP information when you visit SpaCreek.net. We do this to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ behavior inside the site, determine which site referred users to us, and gather general demographic information. Additionally, we may use tracking technology to track the completion of transactions on SpaCreek.net utilizing our email broadcasting system.
“Do Not Track” (DNT) Policy:
California law requires us to let you know how we respond to web browser “Do Not Track (DNT)” signals. Because no industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals currently exists, we don’t respond to them at this time. We await the result of work by the privacy community and industry to determine when such a response is appropriate and what form it should take.
