Information Disclosure This statement outlines the privacy practices of OfficerDown.US. We have clearly marked the OfficerDown.US website with our logos and/or copyright notices so you know where this policy applies. It does not apply to any other companies’ or organizations’ websites to which we link, and you should check their privacy policies when visiting their sites.

The only personally identifiable information collected by OfficerDown.US is information that you provide voluntarily. Other than that, OfficerDown.US collects only mechanical information necessary to manage and enhance the user experience and to create statistics of general, non-user-specific information.

OfficerDown.US and our hosting and metrics services collect some anonymous information about general usage of the sites through a technology tool called a “cookie.” The cookie is used to maintain logged-on status, among other things. OfficerDown.US uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. Persistent cookies remain after you close your browser for subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears when you close your browser. As with any cookie, if you do not want a cookie set then you need to disable your cookies setting in your browser. Please be aware that doing so may disable your ability to stay logged in to the Service and to use other aspects of our site.

Links

OfficerDown.US web pages, including campaign listings and user postings, if any, may contain links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links you are clicking to another website. OfficerDown.US has no responsibility for anything on any website to which you link.

OfficerDown.US does not provide any personally identifiable information to third-parties without your consent other than broad demographic groupings, or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if a campaign manager asks OfficerDown.US to show a campaign to a certain audience (i.e. people in a certain state or city) or audience segment (i.e. people who have viewed certain categories of campaigns), or if and when we incorporate a recommendation engine into the Service then we may use certain of your data to enable that.

If you click on any link to any a non-OfficerDown.US website then you should review the privacy policies of such website(s) for more information on their practices. OfficerDown.US’ Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, any other websites.
