There is absolutely nothing special about the information just described, and the practice of collecting this data has been generally standardized by virtually every Web Server on the Internet today.
The purpose for this information is actually two-fold. One, MediaStems has found it advantageous to examine visitor traffic in its aggregate, so that we can ensure maximum compatibility for the various Browsers and Operating Systems that visit our site. Additionally, as any business should attest, it is our desire to generate greater amounts of visitor traffic. By analyzing visitation patterns, referring URLs and Search Engine terms, we can strategically enhance our exposure on the Internet.
Do I have a choice in whether data is collected and how it is used?
We only collect contact information with our Contact Form, which we use to get a better understanding of projects and to provide faster service.
How can I see and change information that has been collected?
The data we collect is non-sensitive, therefore any changes you would like made can be done through our Contact Form.
How is the data collected secured or protected?
All contact information is stored outside the web server. This provides better security because the information is not connected to the net. By using a firewall we make sure all collected data is protected.
