Online Identification Technologies: Cookies, Beacons and log files
We may utilize online identification technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, or pixels on some pages of our site. Online Identification Technologies can be used to store registration information in an area of the site so that a user does not need to re-enter it on subsequent visits to that area. It is Redwood technology’s policy to use these technologies to make navigation of our websites easier for visitors, to facilitate efficient registration procedures (including remembering preferences) and to better deliver tailored content to visitors.
Redwood technology may utilize Online Identification Technologies from marketing partners on our sites, third-party sites, and social media platforms. These technologies aid in measuring the efficacy of our marketing and awareness campaigns and to understand how visitors navigate to our sites from an Redwood technology ad. We use this technology to compile aggregated statistics about visitors who interact with Redwood technology online content, to gauge the effectiveness of our ads and to better provide more pertinent information to our visitors.

The personal data you submit to us will only be retained for as long as is required for the purposes for which it was collected. Contact information about visitors is kept until a user requests that we delete that information.
Visitor updates of information should be handled by going back through the registration process.
