While Visit Wichita automatically collects information about your computer and Internet request, we do not collect any personal information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide the information. Your personal information will not be sold, rented, loaned or shared with any outside person or organization. Local businesses may petition us to contact site users who have previously requested information about their particular organization. The Visit Wichita governing board will only release the information if its potential use is in keeping with VisitWichita.com's overall mission of increasing awareness and support for local tourism. This policy applies only to the VisitWichita.com website. Other websites that are linked to VisitWichita.com have different and separate privacy policies.
Protecting the privacy of our website visitors is very important to VisitWichita.com. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want to make sure you are informed of the ways in which we may and may not use the information you transmit to us when you visit VisitWichita.com.
Visit Wichita does not collect or track personal information from Visit Wichita website visitors, except where specifically indicated on the relevant web pages. Generic information from server logs may be used to track and analyze the number of hits to the site, and to find out what types of browser software are used by visitors. Opt out of sending this information at google.com. This information will be used only in aggregate form, and used solely for improving website design. These data do not contain any personally identifiable information and will be used for purposes of analyzing website traffic and making improvements for visitors to VisitWichita.com.
We will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis. If you choose to send us e-mail or fill out a web-based form, that information is stored in an employee's e-mail client or in an online database. We use that information to respond to your request or to provide interaction on our website. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. VisitWichita.com will not knowingly accept personally identifiable information from visitors under the age of 18 who have not obtained permission from their parents or guardians.
To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we invoke a standard feature found in browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number, an anonymous user ID that resides on your computer. The cookie does not identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access the site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), Visit Wichita will not know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. A cookie cannot read data stored on your computer.
