Website privacy and policies

Last updated: April 2017.

CODA, Inc. is committed to protecting your online privacy. You can visit our website without registering or providing personal information.

Please note: Tools used by CODA, Inc. and nearly all site operators measure the number of visits made to our sites.  These tools collect information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Each computer has its own IP address—meaning that  your home computer, your work computer and the ones you use at the library, school or in other places have individual numbers. IP addresses are necessary for computers and servers to communicate. These info-gathering tools also note which browser is used when someone visits  our website (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and so on) and the time of day and duration of a visit. Your name, street address, or other personal information is not collected.

Some entities may sell this general user information gathered on their websites—e.g., the number of people who browse a site from noon to 1 p.m. and how many use Safari. CODA does not sell any information accumulated from the monitoring of this site.

As of this writing (March 31, 2017) providers such as Comcast and AT&T do not sell personal information they collect from their customers’ web browsing. This is subject to change depending on the actions of Congress.


“Cookies” are essentially tiny markers which stay on your hard drive to allow faster, customized access to a site you visit regularly–including financial institutions, social media, and vendors.
