I took all the photographs not otherwise credited, scanned and edited each photograph, and designed each page on this web site. I also hand-coded all of the HTML and Javascript on this site that was not provided by affiliate partners for specific banners or other links, or by CGI hosting companies for such things as hit counters.

Privacy Statement for this web site

I have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate my commitment to your privacy. The following sections disclose the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site.


The various companies in whose affiliate programs or banner exchange networks I participate may use cookies to track visitor referrals from this site. I do not receive any of this information except in the form of aggregate reports. None of my code creates, deletes, reads, or writes cookies.

Information Automatically Logged

I make use of various web tracking and hit counter services. These may use your IP address or domain name to gather broad demographic information used to report on such statistics as the number of visitors to this site per country or time zone. None of them provide me with access to IP or email addresses for any visitors.

If you send me email, I will then have your email address. I will not divulge your email address unless required to do so by a court order or to deal with offensive or threatening email.

Personal Information

This Web site does not request any personal information or collect any information that personally identifies you or allows you to be personally contacted.

Since I do not collect any personal information on this Web site, I do not share any of this personal information that I do not have with any third parties nor do I use this non-existant personal information for any purposes.


Since I do not collect any personal information on this Web site, I have no security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information I do not have.


I do not receive any fees for displaying advertising banners. I may have a "banner exchange" banner on one or more pages on this site. By displaying such banners, my banners get displayed by other sites that are part of the banner exchange network. However, this is strictly barter, with no money changing hands.

I therefore consider this to be a non-commercial site.

Special Relationships

I add links from this site to other sites that I personally find to be useful or interesting.

I have joined affiliate programs and otherwise make myself eligible to receive compensation for referrals to some sites, but all such relationships came after I linked to a given site for non-commercial reasons. In most cases, I only recently discovered the affiliate programs of sites to which I have had links for over a year.

The various companies in whose affiliate programs I participate use cookies to track visitor referrals from this site, and may request personal information from visitors. I do not receive any this information except in the form of aggregate reports.

Thus far, I have not actually received enough income from these relationships to offset my monthly internet access fee (I have cable modem service, and I only use the free hosting space provided by my ISP and various other sites that provide free web site hosting.

If by some miracle this site starts producing huge amounts of money, I will still pick my links based on personal usefulness or preferences rather than income potential. I do not sell any products from this site.

I therefore consider this to be a non-commercial site.

This site contains links to other sites.

I am not responsible for the privacy practices, or any policies or content of such Web sites or any companies with which they may be affiliated.
