Note: My Web pages are best viewed with style sheets enabled.
My Web pages do not request any information from you. Any information you provide would be via conventional E-mail, for which different privacy rules might apply.
Some of my Web pages have counters. Occasionally, I might even have a non-visible counter. When there is a counter, I collect the time and IP address of your Internet connection when you view that page. Aside from their use within the counter itself to eliminate redundant counts, I make only personal use of those data (e.g.: to determine the geographical distribution of persons viewing my pages). The only disclosure of information to others would consist of summarized counts without disclosing individual IP addresses. I do not sell, exchange, or otherwise distribute individual IP addresses.
*** Begin Right Sidebar ***Use of a blank UA string is contrary to RFC 1945 (§10.15) and other RFCs. If you use a blank UA string when visiting my Web site while I am logging counted visits, I will report that fact to your ISP with the date-time stamp of the visit, your IP address, the URI of the Web page from which that visit originated, and the URI of my Web page that was visited. I believe your ISP can determine your identity from the information I supply.
Some might consider this a privacy violation, but I am merely reporting Internet abuse.

On occasion, I log all counted visits, collecting the browser brand and version (UA string) of each visit and the URI from which the visit originated. I use these data to determine what browsers are being used to visit my pages. I may then publish statistical summaries of this information. I do not sell, exchange, or otherwise distribute individual user agent IDs.
Note: Many of my Web pages have links to external Web pages over which I have no control. While I might evaluate the privacy provided by those external pages, that is for my own personal use. I will not confirm or deny any assertions made in those pages regarding their collection, handling, and distribution of personal information. Thus, this Privacy Statement cannot possibly apply to those external Web pages.
