Collection of IP addresses and the use of “Cookies”

When you visit our Site, some information such as your Internet protocol address, Internet service provider, operating system, the Site from which you arrived, and the time and date of your visit may be collected automatically as part of the software operation of this Site. Blue Hill uses this information solely for internal marketing purposes, for example, to see what pages are most frequently visited in order to improve the Site. After it is used for internal marketing purposes, this information is discarded.

Blue Hill and our marketing affiliates, analytics (lead tracking system), or service providers (Google for search engine optimization) use cookies or similar technologies. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the website, tracking users’ movements around the site, and gathering demographic information about our user base as a whole. You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, but if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our website or service. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis.

A cookie is a small file that a web site can send to your browser, which is then stored on your system by your browser. The use of cookie technology on bluehilldata.com is solely for internal marketing purposes. If you are uncomfortable accepting cookies from our Site or any other, you can set your browser to notify you when a Site attempts to send you a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide for yourself whether or not to accept the cookie. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. Our cookies are not tied to personally identifiable information.

Some of our business partners (e.g., tracking utility company) use cookies and clear gifs (aka web beacons) on our site in order to help us better manage content by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

As described in this Privacy Notice, BlueHill and/or third parties on our digital propert(ies) may use cookies and similar tracking technologies to collect information and infer your interests for interest-based advertising purposes. If you would prefer to not receive personalized ads based on your browser or device usage, you may generally express your opt-out preference to no longer receive tailored advertisements. Please note that you will continue to see advertisements, but they will no longer be tailored to your interests.

Nature of Data on the Internet

It is Blue Hill’s intent to guard any personal information that you submit to us, and Blue Hill will continue to take steps to maintain the security of this Site.
