Your privacy is of the highest concern to us. To help guard your privacy, our web site uses data encryption - the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol - to protect sensitive web pages. If a web page has an address that begins with "https//" rather than "http://" then it uses encryption.
For site security purposes and to help us improve our Web site, we use software that can monitor network traffic and identify unauthorized attempts to cause damage or upload or change information. Also, when you signup we capture your PC's IP address for security purposes. As on most Web sites, when a page is requested we can obtain some information about the request for statistical purposes. This system uses software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of the most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
