Like most website operators, the Southeast Sustainability Directors Network (SSDN) collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.

Certain visitors to our website may choose to interact with the website in ways that require us to gather personally-identifiable information.
