Information and Usage

Carson gathers two types of information about users:

  1. Information that users provide through optional or voluntary submissions.
  2. Information we obtain through aggregated tracking data derived mainly by tabulating page views throughout our website. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs and to help better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances do we divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.

Carson tracks user traffic patterns through our website, however, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. This information consists of a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s web browser).


Carson operates a secure data network protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to any information provided by our clients.
