Bayou Barn Privacy Policy

While we automatically collect information about your computer and internet request, we do not collect any personal information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide the information.

This policy applies to only Bayou Barn Web Site, as other websites that are linked from our pages may have different and separate privacy policies. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want to make sure you are informed of the ways in which we may and may not use the information you transmit to us when you visit the Bayou Barn Web Site. This privacy policy covers two categories:

Information that is collected automatically

1. The Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you use to access our Web site. The IP address is a number that uniquely identifies your computer on the Internet. Without this number, our servers would not know where to send back the information you are requesting.
2. The date and time you “hit” each page on our site.
3. The page you are requesting.
4. The Web browser and computer operating system you are using to access our site.
5. The address of the site or page you came from to our site.

These data do not contain any personally identifiable information and will be used for purposes of analyzing Web site traffic and making improvements for visitors to our website.

Information you send to us

We will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis. If you choose to send us an e-mail or fill out a Web-based form, that information is stored in an employee’s e-mail or in an on-line database. We use that information to respond to your request or to provide interaction on our Web site. We do not use any of the information you send us for commercial marketing purposes. However, because we are subject to Louisiana Open Records Law, we may be obligated to make our records available if an appropriate open records request is submitted.

Use of Cookies

To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we invoke a standard feature found in browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each visitor a unique, random number, a sort of anonymous user ID that resides on your computer. The cookie doesn’t actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we won’t know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. A cookie can’t read data stored on your computer. We use cookies to help us tailor our site to your needs and to deliver a better, more personalized service. We may also use cookies to track the pages on our site visited by our users. We can build a better site if we know which pages our users are visiting and how often. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. You do not need to have cookies enabled to use our website as a guest. However, some features of our site will not work properly if you refuse cookies.
