Links to the information on this web site may be made freely without contacting the owners of the site, however copying of the information to any other site without permission is strictly prohibited.

Any legal trademarks referred to on this site are the property of their respective owners.


DISCLAIMER ....
All information and data on this site is provided on an "As Is" basis. The use of any portion of this web site is entirely at the user's own risk and responsibilty.  In no event can the maintainer of this site be made liable for any losses or damages incurred or thought to be incurred from the use of the data on this web site.

PRIVACY POLICY ....
Your privacy is very important to us.  We believe that anyone who is using the world wide web has an absolute right to maintain their annonymity and to enjoy their time on the internet without worrying about whether a site is trying to invade their privacy.  To that end this site does not collect personally identifiable information of any type unless you choose to provide it via an electronic mail message, a phone call, or by postal mail.  Even when you choose to provide any personally identifiable information it will be kept in the strictest confidence.

The owners of this web site do not sell, rent, share, or otherwise disclose mailing lists or other information, personally identifiable or not, in any way.  We do not maintain records, including "Guestbook" entries, of individuals who contact us, other than keeping copies of all email messages received.

This web site is hosted by a third-party source and we have no control over the business practices of that company or corporation.  The service that we use has proven to be reputable and responsible, and is highly recommended.  Many web hosting services, including the host that we use, gather statistics pertaining to connections to the sites that they host, however this is normally limited to geographic locations, date and time, pages viewed, etc.  This is done so that their customers will know what the most commonly viewed pages are, the areas of the world that the connections come from, and so forth.  In any event, to our knowledge, no information is gathered by our hosting service or by this web site that can in any way whatsoever uniquely identify a specific computer, person, or physical address in any way.

Note that many of the links on this web site are links to pages on other web sites.  We have no control over the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites, and recommend that you refer to the privacy practices of those sites prior to providing any personal information to them.


COOKIES ....
We do not require "cookies" on our web site except on the online guestbook page.  Even though "cookies" are claimed by many to be benign and innocuous in nature we recommend that you use discretion in when you enable them and what sites are allowed to write "cookies" to your computer.  There is seldom any reason for a web site to require "cookies".  If they need to retain information about a vistor to their site there are alternatives to requiring the user to enable "cookies" in their browser.

Note that you may see cookies set on your computer by this site.  This is not something that is being done by the web site authors, it is apparently being done by Microsoft Internet Information Server on the server of the hosting company.  These cookies are unnecessary and unneeded and are being set for no apparent reason.  If they are blocked, denied, or deleted everything on this site will still work properly.  The only other area of this site that sets a cookie is the online guestbook.  That software was written by a third party and does require that cookies be enabled to be able to post a guestbook entry.

On a personal note I, as the author of this site, recommend that you NEVER enable cookies unless there is a specific need to do so.  If a particular site requires the use of cookies to access their site, go somewhere else.  If you truly need to visit a "Cookie Required" site be sure to delete the cookie files from your computer as soon as possible.  The reason for this is that most software that writes cookie files does so in an unencrypted manner.  I have seen numerous examples of usernames and passwords in cookie files that were in plain text so that anyone who opened the cookie file in Notepad could plainly see the username and password used to gain access to that site.  This is a gaping security hole on a computer that I am not willing to allow.
