Protecting Your Privacy
Generation and Use of Web Site Information
Each visit to the Institute’s website produces certain non-personally identifiable information: a logfile entry that indicates time of visit, the domain name of your machine (e.g., “dial-54.somewhere.edu“), the file(s) (and their sizes, in bytes) that your visit generated, and the type of web browser and operating system you are using. This happens with most industry-standard, web-serving software.
The Institute does not share such information with third parties. We use it internally to facilitate your visits to our web site, to respond to your inquiries about the Institute, to improve the site’s design, for system administration and troubleshooting purposes, and in aggregated form, to track and analyze site usage.
The Institute does not accumulate and store information on visitors to its web site. We use a high level of encryption to transmit credit card payment transactions behind a firewall that protects against unauthorized access. As soon as each transaction has been completed, the entries regarding it are deleted. Please note that all subscription sales are final.
