For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this computer server system employs software programs to monitor network traffic that identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Except as noted below about other encapsulated web sites, and for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are used for no other purposes. These data logs will not be sold or otherwise distributed to any third party.

Other information collected on this site may include visitor contact information for the purposes of users "opting-in" to receive updates and other information that may be published on or via the site.
