If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the web site, do searches, read pages, or download information, we gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. No information about the Diocese of Huron web site users/visitors will be sold, shared, or utilized in any commercial way. We may automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:

WE DO NOT TRACK OR RECORD INFORMATION ABOUT THE IDENTITY OF INDIVIDUALS AND THEIR VISITS.

We do sometimes write a small file on the user’s computer called a “session cookie.” Session cookies automatically expire when users leave a site; session cookies retain information only during the session or for the purpose of completing a particular online transaction, without any capacity to track users over time and across different web sites.
