For purposes of this Agreement, “Atlas” refers to PolicyAtlas’ service, which can be accessed via our website at www.policyatlas.org in which users can review and contribute to a wiki-based, non-partisan, encyclopedia of public policy.
1. Information we collect
We receive and collect information of two types: “Non-Personal Information” and “Personal Information.” Non-Personal information includes information that cannot be used to personally identify you, such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit and number of clicks. Personal information generally includes your email, your username, and any other optional information you choose to provide or contribute during or following registration (e.g., such as your first and last name or other content that you may choose to host, including as part of a user profile).
Information collected via technology
To create an account on the Atlas, you do not need to submit any Personal Information other than your email address. To use the Atlas thereafter, you do not need to submit further Personal Information. However, in an effort to improve the quality of the Atlas, we may use Google Analytics or other programs to track information provided to us by your browser or by our software application when you view or use the Atlas, such as time and date of access, the type of browser used, the device from which you connected to the Atlas, the website you came from (known as the “referring URL”), and any other information that does not personally identify you.
