Information Collected and Stored Automatically

When you visit nezpercetribe.news and affiliated sites, we will automatically collect and store the following information about your visit:

  • Name of the Internet domain (for example, “xcompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account or “yourschool.edu” if you are connecting from a university’s domain).
  • IP address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you are using the Internet) from which you access our site.
  • Type of browser and operating system used to access our site.
  • Date and time you access our site.
  • Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site.
  • Country and state from which you access our site.
  • Pages you visit and the information you request.
  • Search terms you used to get to our website from an external search engine and terms you used on our site using our search engine.

This information is collected as part of a systems log file that is used internally for technical improvements and site management. We collect this information to create summary statistics to assess what information is of most and least interest to the public, improving visitor experience and identifying system performance or problem areas. We also use the information to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our website to help us make our site more useful.

The primary purpose of collecting this information is not to track individual visitors to this site. However, in certain circumstances—such as defacement, threats or potential criminal activity—the Nez Perce Tribe may be required by law to take additional steps to identify who is using this information. Additionally, the information collected may be shared with other agencies when required by federal law, executive order or regulation.

If you choose to provide personal information by sending a message to an email address on this website, submitting a form through our website, or filling out a questionnaire or guestbook, we will use the information you provide to respond to you or provide the service you requested.

Please do not send us sensitive information, such as your credit card or social security numbers, via email. Internet communications are not always secure. It is possible that a third party may intercept the information, and we cannot guarantee its security over email. You may wish to consider other means to securely send sensitive personal information to us.

We use personally identifiable information to protect you and provide better service (e.g., correcting broken links that you have identified or providing the information that you have requested). Any information that we collect via a questionnaire or a guestbook may be subject to disclosure. We will handle your information as required by applicable law to ensure the greatest protection of your personal privacy.

Where feasible, visitors will be provided with an additional privacy notice on websites and forms where the Nez Perce Tribe requests personal information.

Information Collected for Website Measurement and Customization Technologies (Cookies)

A cookie is a small file that transfers to your computer when you visit a website to allow it to remember specific information about your session. Your computer will only share the information in the cookie with the website that provided it, and no other website can request it. There are two types of cookies, session and persistent. Session cookies last only as long as your web browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for longer periods of time.

The nezpercetribe.news website may use session cookies for technical purposes, such as to enable better navigation through the site, or to allow you to customize your preferences for interacting with the site. It may also make use of persistent cookies to remember you between visits. For example, you can save your customized preference settings for future visits. If you do not wish to have session or persistent cookies stored on your machine, you can turn them off in your browser. However, this may affect how some nezpercetribe.news website functions.

Our website has links to other organizations. Once you access another site through a link that we provide, you are subject to the privacy policy of that site. The privacy policies and procedures described here do not apply to any external sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of any site you link to from ours, especially if you share any personal information.

Website Security

We use virus protection measures on our computer systems and nezpercetribe.news website and regularly update the software. These computer security measures maintain our computer systems and ensure that all files that we develop or post on our web servers are virus-free. When you download a file from our site, it is possible, though unlikely, that the data may contract a virus and become corrupted before it reaches your computer. The Nez Perce Tribe is not responsible for files that may become corrupted as the data travels the Internet.
