Privacy and the Internet
The ACLU of Iowa takes many steps to protect your privacy when you visit ACLU of Iowa website. In order to advance our advocacy and outreach programs, and to provide you with a better experience while you are on the ACLU of Iowa site, we do allow some tracking to take place. How and when we do so is explained below.
