Public: ISMAIA Privacy Statement for Non-Members

 
 

Summary:

information privacy photoWe will never under any circumstances disclose any identifiable information ever, without your signed and explicit consent. We make no effort to identify public users of our site. No identifying data is disclosed to any third party for any purpose. Data that we collect is used only for server administration and Web protocol research.

This statement applies to non-member interactions with ISMAIA Web servers. It does not apply to email sent to ISMAIA staff or lists. Any questions regarding the web site and the privacy policy can be directed to site-policy(a†)ISMAIA.com.

As is typical, we log http requests to our server. This means that we know the originating IP (e.g. 18.29.0.1) address of a user agent requesting a URL. We also know the Referer and User-Agent information accompanied with an HTTP request. We do not log the specific identity of visitors. We occasionally analyze the log files to determine which files are most requested and the previous site or user agent which prompted the request. Our logging is passive; we do not use technologies such as cookies to maintain any information on users. The only cookies used are anonymous and only to store site-wide preferences like the default font-size.

We also log requests to our search, cgi, and list maintenance services. This data is only used for administration and researching the efficacy of our tools.

Logged information is kept indefinitely as admistrative and research material; it is not disclosed outside of ISMAIA host site personnel.
