allaria.com privacy policy

I promise not to disclose your private information to any third party except if required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of allaria.com users or the public. I take all reasonable care in handling your personal information to ensure its security both offline and online.

Types of Information I Collect
You are free to browse allaria.com without submitting any personal information at all. Your IP address (your current Internet address) is stored in the server logs at the time of your visit, as it is on all web sites. I do not collect any personal information (such as a name, address or e-mail address) when you visit the site unless you register for my blog or mailing list(s).

Blog Registration
You must register to read or post to my blog. You must provide a real email address (not a free web-based email address) when you register.

Mailing List Registration
If you sign up for my mailing list(s) you will have to supply an email address. My mailing list is maintained by Yahoo! Groups which has its own policies. Please read the Yahoo! privacy policy before signing up. You may read the messages on the mailing list without registering by visiting http://groups.yahoo.com/group/<name of list> (currently I am not maintaining a mail list).

Cookies
I am not using cookies on any portion of this site with the possible exception of the blog. The blog may use browser cookies to keep track of which messages you have read, your login, and other information about your session. Cookies are small pieces of text that are stored on your hard drive between visits. For example, I may use a cookie to store your username and password so you don't have to re-enter them each time you visit. These cookies do not collect, store or maintain any private, personally identifiable information. You do not have to accept these cookies to visit or use the site (although turning cookies off may severely impair the board's functionality), and you can choose to refuse the cookies, delete the cookies from your hard drive or turn off cookies at any time by updating your user profile preferences.

Comments on my Blog
It is important remember that when you provide personal information (e.g., last name, address, phone number) in a online posting that that information is visible to anyone, and may be used by someone in a manner unintended by you. For that reason, I discourage you from posting any personal information on this or any blog or message board.
