Privacy - This website does not collect personally identifiable information:
This website, as do all websites, does collect non-personally identifiable information: Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not identify a specific individual: When a visitor arrives at the site, the web servers collect the IP address, operating system and browser software used, date and time, what pages were visited, what sites were linked from, etc. An IP address (which is not the same as an e-mail address) can identify the user's internet service provider (but not the user's email address or any other personally identifiable information) and, based on that, can suggest the geographic location of the connection. The web servers also collect information about which pages are visited, the order in which they were visited, and which hyperlinks are "clicked".
Cookies - For the same purposes, web servers use "cookies" -- small text files placed on your computer's hard drive -- to help track your usage of the site. Cookies don't include personal information about you, but they are unique to each user, which lets the web server computers distinguish between visitors, and optionally personalize your experience if the website provides such capability. A common misconception is that Cookies are spyware or malware and are dangerous: Cookies are only read by the web server computer that placed them and only for the reasons previously stated, and they cannot execute any code or virus. When you run an anti-virus program on your computer the anti-virus program will invariably detect these small text files, but they are not viruses or malware.
