The information we receive depends upon what you do when visiting this site. If you want to send us your Tips or Testimonials, you will be asked to enter your name and e-mail address so we may contact you to verify your submission.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

We use cookies sparingly on the Call811 Web site. (A "cookie" is a file placed on your hard drive by a Web site that allows it to monitor your use of the site, usually without your knowledge.) This is an industry standard.

If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Web site, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit.

  • The Internet domain (for example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university's domain) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our Web site;
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • The date and time you access our site;
  • The pages you visit; and
  • If you linked to Call811.com from another Web site, the address of that Web site.

We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors — to learn about the number of visits to our site and the content accessed most frequently on the Web site.

On certain Web pages, we may use a certain type of "cookie" - what is known as a "session" cookie - to help you use our Web site interactively. Cookies are data a Web site can send to your browser. Session cookies (also known as session variables) are kept in your browser's memory and are purged after your browser session is over. Session cookies are used to keep track of passwords, preferences, orders and various other aspects of a user's "session" within a Web site. We may use session cookies to improve your interaction with selected pages on the site. We do not use session cookies to track or personally identify users. Further, we do not make use of "persistent cookies" - another type of cookie that, when used, are stored on your hard drive and can be used to track Web users over time and across Web sites.

To protect your privacy, be sure to close your browser completely after you have finished conducting business with a Web site that uses cookies. If you are concerned about the potential use of information gathered from your computer by cookies, you can set your browser to prompt you before it accepts a cookie. Most Internet browsers have settings that let you identify and/or reject cookies. These settings are usually located under "Tools" on your browser toolbar.
