Information that is collected and how it is collected

of numbers, which serve as that computer's Internet Protocol Address or "IP ADDRESS". The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you
other than the IP address from which you have accessed the site. I use this
information to examine my traffic in aggregate, but do not collect and
evaluate this information for individuals. I do not record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
Guestbook entries are public by nature, unless you check the
box labeled "private". This action is discouraged, but available.
I do not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to
me. This means that you can visit my site without telling me who you are or
revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

I may also request your e-mail address for the
purposes of conducting a survey or when you leave feedback. Whenever I request the identity of a visitor,
I will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information
is requested. I maintain a "No-Spam" policy that means I do
not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent.

How it is used
When you supply information about yourself
for a specific purpose, I use the information for only that purpose (such as
to provide the service or information you have requested). If you provide
feed back about the website, it may be made public, but your personal
and/or contact information will not be divulged unless you are a business or
you give your consent.
I will disclose personal information when required by law or in the
good-faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the law,
identify persons who may be violating the law, or to cooperate
with the investigations of purported unlawful activities.
I link to a wide
variety of other sites and contain advertisements of third parties. I am
not responsible for their privacy policies or how they treat information
about their users.
I do not share any of the individual personal information you
provide me with the sites to which I link.

specifically request otherwise. It is assumed in the case of a business that
permission is granted to re-publish the comments. If you prefer NOT to have
