Information Collection and Use
Sentinel Title & Trust receives, but does not track, a variety of “personally identifiable information,” including your email address, IP address and message content. When we need to collect personally identifiable information from you to execute a requested transaction or provide you with a particular service, we will ask you to voluntarily supply us with the information we need. We may ask you for information such as, but not limited to: your name, address, telephone number, and email address to process your submission. You have the option of also providing information regarding your name, demographics (such as your state and country of residency), operating system, browser, Internet service provider (“ISP”), connection type and email program that you are using. Sentinel Title & Trust also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP Address and the page you requested. Your IP address is not linked to your email address or Sentinel Title & Trust.
Sentinel Title & Trust does not collect your email address unless you actively provide it to the company so that we can communicate with you.
When your Web browser or email application requests a Web page from another computer on the Internet it automatically gives that computer the address where the requested information should be sent. This is called your computer’s “IP address.” (IP stands for “Internet protocol.”) For most users accessing the Internet from a dial-up ISP, the IP address may be different every time you log on. Sentinel Title & Trust receives your IP address each time you view a Web page from the Site. Your IP address is not linked to your email address or any other personally identifiable information.
Your IP address may be used for various purposes, including:
- To diagnose service or technology problems reported by you that are associated with your IP address
- To estimate the total number of users visiting the Site from specific locales, countries or regions of the world
When a Web page on the website is requested, that request (including the date and time) is logged on our servers with information including the IP address of the computer that requested the page.
We use log files for debugging and troubleshooting purposes. IP addresses and access times are not linked to your email address or any other personally identifiable information.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and then stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie cannot obtain information from your hard drive, destroy files, or transmit viruses. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser, if your browser’s preferences allow it. To protect your privacy, your browser normally only permits a website to access cookies that it has previously sent to you, but not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Choices about Cookies
You can normally configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) If you reject all cookies, you will still be able to use Sentinel Title & Trust services. Cookies are used only as an option selected by you that allows us to recall your email address from the cookie that we sent to your computer.
