The Culpeper County Voter Registration and Election Office (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates http://www.voteinculpeper.info (the “Site”). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site.
While we collect information from site visitors, we do so only to provide and improve the Site. We do not ask for, or collect, any information which identifies you as an individual (e.g. name, address, email); however, we do use third-party applications which collect the information listed below. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
Like many website operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site (“Log Data”).
This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this data.
We collect this information for two main reasons. The first is to monitor the number of people looking to us for information and to see what information is being requested. This data helps us better serve the voters of Culpeper County. The second reason is security. We track daily traffic to help us identify unusual traffic patterns on the site — without a baseline, we might be slower to react to a denial of service attack where bad actors bombard a website with requests in order to make it in inaccessible to the general public.
