Last Updated: January 27, 2022 Our Privacy Policy

Common Courtesy, Inc. (Common Courtesy) places a high priority on protecting your privacy. This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate Common Courtesy's firm commitment to the privacy of our website visitors. This policy explains what types of information are collected by Common Courtesy's website, https://www.commoncourtesyrides.org, and how this information is used.

What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected
Common Courtesy website visitors that sign up to receive e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always "opt-out," either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.

IP addresses
Common Courtesy uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer https://www.commoncourtesyrides.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.

Cookies
Our website uses "cookie" messages to automatically help provide better services. They remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on what you've done and told us before. The "cookie" is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. Cookies let us take you to the information and features you're particularly interested in. They also let us track your usage of our website, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You can reject cookies or cancel them by instructing your Web browser accordingly.

Google Analytics
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use (as amended for government websites) and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

LinkedIn Insight Tag and Conversion Tracking
The LinkedIn Insight Tag is a piece of lightweight JavaScript code that we have added to our website to enable campaign reporting and to help us learn insights about our website visitors. We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag to track conversions of LinkedIn advertising campaigns, retarget website visitors, and unlock additional insights about LinkedIn members who interact with our LinkedIn ads.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of metadata such as IP address information, timestamp, and events such as page views. All data is encrypted. The LinkedIn browser cookie is stored in a visitor's browser until they delete the cookie or the cookie expires (there’s a rolling six-month expiration from the last time the visitor’s browser loaded the Insight Tag).

You can opt out of cookies from LinkedIn on your LinkedIn settings page. We also recommend you read LinkedIn’s Cookie Policy for more information.

How Your Information May Be Used
We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests; to process your account application; etc. You may choose to opt-out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitors to our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users' needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.

Email Privacy
Common Courtesy does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization.

External Links
Our website includes links to external websites. These links do not fall under the https://www.commoncourtesyrides.org domain, and Common Courtesy is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites. Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk.

Modifications
We may amend this privacy policy from time to time. Please review it periodically.
