The Gold Coast Area of Narcotics Anonymous operates its website on the following domains: gcna.co, gccna.co, goldcoastna.co, and goldcoastna.org.
Like most website operators, we collect 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. We do not ask you for this information, as it is collected automatically by our servers and software as provided by your web browser. Our purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website.
We collect potentially personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, time zone, and other geographical or locale data. We do not ask you for this information, as it is collected automatically by our web server and software as provided by your web browser.
We also collect other potentially personally-identifying information that is collected by Google Analytics. 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. This website also implements other analytics features including Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting which collects visitors demographic information such as your age, gender, and browsing interests. We do not ask you for this information, as it is collected automatically by Google Analytics as provided by your interaction with Google and its services.
At any time, visitors may choose to prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser, or to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking with the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
We may also collect statistics or other data about the behavior of visitors to our website, such as keywords or keyword phrases used to find our website through search engines, referrers, entry and exit pages, sessions, session durations, browser, operating system, network, visiting frequency and recency, benchmarking, and other non-personally-identifying information.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors choose to interact with our website or web services in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an email subscription to provide their email address. In any case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with us. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website or web service-related activities.
How We Use This Information
We use this information to identify trends in the usage of our website and web services, to help us better understand our visitors and how they use our website and web services, to improve our website and web services, to aid in the continued design and development of our website and web services, to ensure the best overall user experience to our visitors, as well as to generate statistical data and reports which may be published for internal use only to measure and track the use of our website and web services.
If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just to keep you up to date with what's going on with our website or web services. We primarily use our website and web services to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
How Long Do We Keep This Information
Although we have no specific data retention policies, we reserve the right to keep information that we collect for an unlimited period of time unless otherwise required by law. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data, please email our Web Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
We will never facilitate the merging of personally-identifying or potentially personally-identifying information with non-personally identifying information previously collected from Google Analytics features or other sources unless we have the prior affirmative (i.e. opt-in) consent to that merger from the user.
