This site uses cookies. A cookie is a small line of text that is stored on your computer when you visit some websites.  As you browse the Web, sites will send cookies to your browser along with the pages you access.  Your browser probably has options that will let you control whether the browser accepts cookies, rejects cookies, or notifies you each time a cookie is sent to you.  If your browser is set to reject cookies, websites will not recognize you when you return.  This provides you with anonymity, but it makes it difficult to offer services that are customized specifically for you.  It is also less secure  because  your  data must be sent to the website each time you view a page.  Data is most at risk during transmission between your computer and the Web Site.  Accepting cookies means your private data can stay at the Web Site, and the only information transmitted over the Internet is the cookie.  If your browser is set to accept cookies, any cookies that are sent to your browser are stored on your computer.

Types of cookies.

A session cookie is stored only in your computer’s working memory (RAM.)   When you close all of your browser’s windows, or when you shut down your computer, the session cookie disappears forever.  A permanent cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive until a specified date:  tomorrow, next week, or 10 years from now.  Permanent cookies stay on your computer until either:

a) they expire

b) they are overwritten with newer cookies, or

c) you manually remove them.

Personally identifying information you provide by email will only be used for the purpose identified in the email message and to provide services to you.  (If you use the Write to me link in the menu you can specify if you want the message to be kept private.) The owner of this web site is a fanatic when it comes to issues of privacy and believes that ALL information about YOU does and should belong to YOU and SHOULD fall under the copyright laws and be treated as CopyRighted information.
