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.
We log http requests to our server.
This means that we know the originating IP 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. We also log requests to our search, cgi,
and list maintenance services.
Logged information is kept indefinitely as admistrative
and research material; it is not disclosed outside of PGCC host site
personnel. Aggregate (completely non-identifying) statistics generated
from these logs may be reported as part of research results.
