This website uses an online service that tracks general information about visitors.
Here's the kind of information we collect:
Your IP address
Date and time of your visit
Who referred you (i.e. search engine, website, direct entry, etc.)
Pages you visited
Time spent on each page
Country, State and City stats
Computer operating system, etc. ...
Even though we record IP addresses, this is rarely enough information to confirm your identity. Most people have dynamic IP addresses, meaning that one IP address is shared by many users in the same general geographic area. Static IP addresses are less common and more expensive. Instead of sharing an IP address, a static address is assigned to one person. Big companies, for example, often have static IP addresses that are used by hundreds of employees.
We use tracking information to learn about how visitors find us, what pages appeal to them, and how they use the site. In this way we are able to make improvements, add appropriate, interesting content, and know what our visitors want.
We also collect information you choose to give us. e.g. when you email us or apply for membership we will have your email address and any other information you freely provide.
Without your consent, we will not sell, trade, rent, or give any of your personal information to anyone. We may however publish your emails in whole or in part on this site if we feel that your information can benefit visitors. If we do this, we will not disclose your identity unless you give us permission to do so.
If you've contacted us or are a member, we may keep in touch with you via whatever contact information you provided. You can always contact us and ask to be removed from our email list or unsubscribe. If you do this, and if you are a member, you will be deleted as a member.
If you are a member and as part of the California Online Privacy Protection Act, you may make any changes to your information at anytime by contacting us via email using our 'contact us' page.
Our automated tracking software tracks all visitors regardless of age. This software is not capable of collecting email addresses, phone numbers, and other personal data. If someone attempts to join this site and states they are under the age of 18 or we suspect that they are, their membership will not be approved. If someone contacts us and states they are under the age of 18 or we suspect that they are, these emails will be deleted and we will not respond. We do not knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 18.
