DisclaimerAll of the work on this site was done at home, using our home computers and home time.  This site does not represent the position of any organization, and in our work on this site, we do not represent any organization. The site is hosted by ICAAP, and we are grateful for their hosting. This project is not currently supported by funds from any organization.

The information made available through links at this Web site are provided as a public service.  Information and links at this site are for educational purposes only, and are not intended to be advice or suggestions for any action or inaction.  Any actions taken by visitors to this site are totally the responsibility of the visitors.  Material on linked sites does not necessarily reflect our opinions, nor do we assume any responsibility for the content provided at these linked sites.

There are no fees or registrations required for use of this site. We also, generally, only link to sites that provide completely or mostly free stuff, and sites that don't require registration.

Privacy policyWe do not collect or ask for any personally identifying information about anyone who visits this site (e.g., name, address, age, email address, phone number, etc).  We don't ask for any information at all about anyone who visits this site.  

ICAAP, the host, keeps count of who visits this site.  The info they collect is generally what web sites refer people to this one, what pages they visit, how long they stay, and the type of browser.  We also use a counter from hit-counter that only shows the number of hits. So far as we can tell, ICAAP and hit-counter do NOT collect any info that can personally identify any visitors. I think they collect some IP address information, but we don't get any of that information, and so far as I can tell, neither of these counters shows anyone's IP address on their counter pages. If there are any problems, let me know.

Aside from the counters, we do not collect any information about anyone who visits the web site.

The counter ICAAP uses can be found here

They are all family friendly.

Also, I'm well over 30, so this site was not produced by kids.

See here for information about the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act.  Since we do not collect or ask for any personal information from children, I think that means we are in compliance with COPPA.
