In particular, we do not re-distribute or sell personal information collected on our web servers.

Use of Cookies for Analytics

Our website uses a third-party analytics provider (Google Analytics) to help us understand how visitors use our site. We use this information to improve our content and your experience visiting our site. Google Analytics relies on cookies to produce this information. Google Analytics does not receive personally identifiable information through these cookies and is prohibited from combining, matching or cross-referencing information from our site with any other information. We have also opted not to have Google Analytics storability to see your full IP address (a feature known as “IP masking”). Please review Google Analytics’ privacy policy for additional information. It is also possible to opt-out of Google Analytics for those who wish to do so.

Although our website has enabled settings to respect “Do-not-track” requests sent by users who wish to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking, our site also makes use of page caching to improve site performance. Therefore, you will get the generic version of each page, which will include Google Analytics tracking code and JavaScript even if you send “Do-not-track” requests. However, Google also provides tools for those who wish to opt out of Google Analytics, which will function whether or not you are logged into the site.

  • Gilda’s Club will only use personal information collected from this site for the purpose of communication back to individuals who contact us via the site.
  • Gilda’s Club uses browser-IP-address information and anonymous-browser history to report information about site accesses and for profiling purposes. This information is used to improve Web presentation and utilization. IP address information may also be used for troubleshooting purposes.
  • The CalNet information collected by Gilda’s Club is used to identify users accessing secure content, and to pre-fill forms with information about the user submitting the form.

  • Gilda’s Club will not disclose, without your consent, personal information collected about you, except for certain explicit circumstances in which disclosure is required by law.
