Normal website usage:
Next Great City has a strong commitment to internet privacy. You can visit most portions of Next Great City.org without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect from a normal web site visit is the name of your internet service provider, the browser and type of machine you are using, the web site that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time you request them. We use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the Next Great City site to our visitors.

Collection of personally identifiable information:
Next Great City may collect email addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors when such data is voluntarily submitted to Next Great City.org. For example, our site uses information collection forms for visitors to request information, membership or to subscribe to our free on-line publications. Contact information from these sign-up forms is used to send information and data about Next Great City to our visitors.

To become a member of Next Great City, we require registration of personal information. We use this information to make this function more effective and provide participants with additional information about Next Great City's issues. All such information is collected and stored in a manner appropriate to the nature of the data.

Cookies:
Like most websites, Next Great City may place a "cookie," or small file, in the browser files of a visitor's computer. We use cookies to save information you give us so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site.
