When you register for a Groundwater Tour, we will ask you for information such as your name, home address, email address, and telephone number. All personal information pertaining to inquiries about the Site our about WRD are strictly on an individual and voluntary basis, and thus may include any combination of the aforementioned personal information as you see necessary to provide.

For every visitor to our site, there are several common pieces of non-personal information through standard tracking mechanisms on WRD servers. For example, browser type, operating system, the date and time of the visit, and the pages visited are all recorded. We cannot and do not associate any of this information with individual persons, distribute this information, or use it in any manner other than for statistical analysis in improving our site to better serve our visitors.
