What Information We Collect
We define personal information as your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number. Domain names and IP addresses are not considered to be personal information. We do not collect any identifying or personal data on site users unless that information is submitted as part of a request for information or you send an e-mail to Vermont Broadband Information Consortium through this website.

(1) Internet Protocol (IP) address and domain name of your Internet Service Provider

Our system routinely collects information about origin and site navigation of website visitors. To collect this data, the site may use "session cookies". A "session cookie" is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. This information is used only to help us continually modify the site based on use patterns and is not linked to any personal identifying information.

If you have indicated that we may share your information, we may share it, but without your name or other identifying information, on this website, in marketing or information materials, in reports or presentations or other public displays or disclosures made as a part of Vermont Broadband Information Consortium’s operations. We may use your identifying information to communicate with you if you have requested information from us or as necessary to confirm your identification. We may disclose any information that we receive from you if we are legally compelled to do so.
Users have the option of asking that personal information be removed by submitting a request to the webmaster via the Contact Us page.
