Like all web servers, the Village of Winthrop Harbor web servers automatically create log files for each visitor who accesses the site. The "access logs" allow the Village of Winthrop Harbor to make the site more useful to you. The logs do not record your names, address, phone number, billing or financial information or any other personally-identifying information.

  • The Internet protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine accessing the web site
  • The date of the visit
  • The time of the visit
  • The path taken through the site
  • The browser software and platform used
  • The files accessed

Most Internet Service Providers(ISP) assign IP addresses dynamically. In such a situation, your IP address would be different each time you access the site. Your privacy is further enhanced when your ISP uses a "proxy" server which then assigns the same IP address to everyone accessing the Internet via that ISP.
