Information about all 1 giant mind users and visitors

In general, our site and app automatically gathers certain usage information like the numbers and frequency of visitors to 1GiantMind.org and the number of app downloads. We only use such data in the aggregate.

This aggregate data helps us determine how much our customers use parts of the site and apps, so we can improve our site and apps to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many of you as possible. For example, 1 Giant Mind uses "cookies" that tells us how and when pages in our site are visited, and by how many people. These cookies do not collect personally identifiable information and we do not combine information collected through these cookies with other personally identifiable information to tell us who you are.

We also may provide statistical information, never information about you personally, to our 1 Giant Mind partners about how our members, collectively, use our Internet sites. We do this so they too can understand how much people use their areas and our site in order for them to provide you with the best possible web and mobile experience as well. Finally, 1GiantMind.org, its sponsors and ad servers may also use cookies, as well as "web beacons" or "clear gifs," to determine on an anonymous basis which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them, but do not use these technologies to collect personally identifiable information unless you give us permission to do so.

Registered users may opt not to participate, or withdraw from participating in these activities at any time. This will not affect their relationship with 1 Giant Mind or their use and access to 1 Giant Mind and other 1 Giant Mind programs.

The findings from these research and evaluation activities may be presented in reports, conference papers or published in journals or media releases, however users names will not be disclosed.
